    Exclamation Reinstalled system on a partition need help moving stuff
    So my MBP got stuck on the blue screen before startup.After going into linux my HDD disapeared from the option menu (still was showing up in linux). Since i dont have a backup i didnt want to format all my data away i decided to partition the disk and install snowleo on it. The install went succesfully however i only have 66 Gigs where as the other has 460 Gigs and i cant boot from it so its rendered useless.All i really need is my home directory which is about 130 Gigs however i dont have suficent space to copy it. My question is what can i do? Can i copy the system folders to make the first partition bootable again? Is there a way i can resize the partition (disk utility doesnt let me) so i can shove the home directory onto the second partition?

    You can resize the partition without losing data, but it's going to cost you some $$. iPartition Well worth the price, however.
