thenew3: I was thinking of getting Paragon Partition Manager 10 Server. Did you resize a RAID5 partition or RAID1?

Does the trial fully work? Any limitations? I have a C: partition that's 25GB and D: partition that's 1.33TB need to give more space to C:

I also have a Perc 5i controller.

I've resized partitions with Gparted. You can use a Linux LiveCD to do it. I think Hiren's Boot CD also has it.

Yes I have a PERC 5/i. I used GParted in Ubuntu Linux live CD to resize a 3.63TB partition. 5x1TB in RAID5.

Everything pretty much works straight out of box, especially the PERC and whole raid thing, so thats good...

But in order to have better power saving control, for example cpu throttle control, i needed to compile a new kernel (2.6.30.5) using This guys config for basis.

But unfortunately the new kernel does not recognize the PERC controller. Tried older kernel again, and it works just fine. Tried allso to compile new one with all the LSI RAID modules/options enabled, but it just is'nt working

Anyone have any tips or ideas how to make PERC5/i controller work with self compiled kernel?
