Snow in a small partition
I hope someone could help me.
I have running snow leopard with Empire Efi, but when I installed the snow leopard I made a mistake and I installed in the smaller partition.
Can I do bigger this partition??
Sure you can...Just open "Utility Disk" from the "Utilities Folder". and Select your hard drive first and then click on "Partition" (See image below). stretch down the the right low corner of the Hard drive (Where it says the namer of your OS). after you stretched it all the way down, just click "Apply" and close the "Utility Disk" program...and you're all DONE!
I can do that but not with the partition where I have the system.
The main issue I installed the system in a small partition and now I can change the size but no the partition system.
Do you know any solution?
Thank you for your help!

Partitioning can go wrong; problems can occur. It is possible to lose all of the data on your hard disk. So before you do this, make sure your Time Machine backup or other backup strategy is up-to-date. Programs like GParted can shrink HFS+ file systems but it can't grow them.
My suggestion is to re-install Snow Leopard OS From Scratch but you can do
a full system backup via Time Machine or a drive clone, you can format your boot drive and do a clean install of OS X. To do this, first be sure your backups are complete and accessible, and then boot off your PC with a Bootloader program (Whatever you used Before) after that Insect the Snow Leopard DVD (click the "Utilities" button instead of "Continue" in the Leopard installer). When the installer loads, select your language and then launch "Disk Utility" from the "Utilities" menu and perform the following steps:
Select your boot device (the device above the boot volume name), and select the "Partition" tab.
Select "1 partition" from the drop-down menu, and then give the partition a name and format it as "Mac OS Extended (Journaled).
Click the "options" button and select "GUID" for the partition table.
Close this window and click "Apply" to repartition the table.
Close "Disk Utility" and continue with the Snow Leopard installation.
When the installation completes, migrate your data from your backup to the new system.
In this procedure, you can migrate from either your Time Machine backup, or from a cloned drive. Keep in mind that when you do this you may need to reinstall some programs since a clean install may break some application dependency links to system files.
