Hello there, My HD is in bad shape so I tried to do a clean install to see if things got better. Since my dvd drive is broken I had to install snow leopard from an external HD, and that requires partitioning. This is where the problems started. My mac crashed (freezed, as usual) and I was forced to shut it down in the middle of the process of partitioning the external HD. Now that I restarted the machine and tried to repeat the process it seems that I'm not able to do the partioning. I get this message: "Partition failed with the error: The partition cannot be resized. Try reducing the amount of change in the size of the partition." I have free space, etc, and the external HD was fine until now. What can I do to now? Thank you for your help.
