Help with Mac Drives

Postby johnstrasser » Mon Oct 24, 2016 3:49 pm

Hi Folks,

This is turning into the present from hell :evil: !!! I bought a friend a new (bigger) ssd to replace her aging mech. drive in an apple laptop. Apparently apple (el capitan) uses anf eft/data/recovery partition scheme.

I'm using BBM on an wintell (win 7) machine.

So I make the image (full drive) and copy to the new SSD. Awesome. Now I can't resize the data partition????

Anyone had any luck on this?

Also, after spending the better part of 2 days on this it appears there are gpt (?) issues? https://sourceforge.net/projects/gptfdisk/ because the new drive is a different size. Arrgh. It's so easy on my windows/linux systems

if you just did a raw copy of gpt, then the full drive won't be used,
instead, convert back to mbr disk, then create a gpt, then copy each
partition over.

for apple, you should ensure corestorage is disabled to be able to treat the
gpt drive as normal drive and partitions.
