    delete the swap file and hibernate files on the xp partition while booted to vista and try again. Should work then :)

    Partition Magic doesn't support Vista and some other advanced OS after Vista after it is powered by Powerquest.

    Windows Vista doesn't allow you to extend the partition with the following conditions:

    1. there isn't any unallocated space next to the C drive

    2. the C drive is FAT but not NTFS

    Solution for the above limitations:
    To extend Vista C drive even if there is no unallocated space or the partition is FAT, please visit:
