Change boot partition size
« on: February 09, 2014, 12:41:49 PM »
I need to increase the boot (FAT) partition with the boot piCore. Currently, the size of the partition 20 megabytes. I need 40 megabytes. The second partition using GParted can be resize, but the first I can not.  Any idea?
Sorry for my English

Why do you need to increase?

I needed to resize partition 1, so I could keep 2 kernels and 2 initrd's.

You can't expand it because it has to be a continuous block, and the second partition is in the way.

1) Move the second partition first.
2) Then resize the first partition.

Make a backup of your card, just incase something goes wrong.
