Repartition Hard Drive with Dual OS and Not Losing Data

bostonman:
Unless I’m doing something wrong, it won’t allow me to maximize a partition without leaving 1MB preceding and not allowing me to move/expand the precious partition.

The minute I move that 2.5GB, XP doesn’t boot; I get a DLL error.

The only expanded is the 2.5G and that's already maximized. Did you mean the unallocated?

Yes.

bostonman:
Yes, when I do this, it won't allow me to expand fully on the beginning; I need to keep 1MB. This additional unallocated space now gets in the way of trying to expand the Ubuntu partition.

Update: I get a warning if I try to allocate it that it can't be -2048 or something like that.

Maybe a better partition program exists that will allow me to just move partitions?

BradC:
You seem to have expanded sdb4 and sdb5. Try expanding sdb4 and move sdb5 to the end.

bostonman:
From what I can tell, I'm following your suggestions, but not getting the same results.

I'll post pictures in a moment.
