Re: Partion resizing

You should be able to script this during the install by using the DISKPART tool.

Re: Partion resizing

If you are talking about configuring the initial partitions/disk layout during an RDP Windows 2008 scripted install, you edit the default.xml file in .\lib\osconfig directory for the edition you are using (.\lib\osconfig\w61e.64 for 2008 Enteprise 64-bit or .\lib\osconfig\w61s for Windows 2008 Standard 32-bit). The help files for the Windows SIM utility also detail the necessary settings for disk partitioning.
