    Hey guys, I have a dual boot setup right now with Lion and Mountain Lion. Lion was installed first, then Mountain Lion. Right now I have some free space from the Lion partition. I'm trying to add this to the Mountain Lion partition. How do I go about doing this? I have attached a screenshot to help clarify my situation.

    Bumping, especially after only 35 minutes, is frowned upon here.

    Anyway, you cannot expand the beginning of one partition, only the end, thus you need an external HDD in your case to clone the contents of your current HDD partitions onto and partition the HDD to your liking booted from the external HDD and then cloning it all back.

    Didnt mean to be rude :(

    But thanks for the answer, and if thats the case, then I'm not going to even bother, I will be getting an SSD by Black Friday, so then I'll just set up my system fresh and replace lion with Snow Leopard :)
