I've got a MacBook Pro Intel with a 250Gb Disk.
Some days ago i had to install Ubuntu for a college work and for that I partitionate the disk.
Some troubles appear with that Ubuntu OS and I removed the partitions in the Disk Utility getting free space.

I would like to use that free space with the HD of Mac OS and when i extend it in the Disk Utility, appears one error:

"Partition failed

The MediaKit communicate partition (mapping) too smale"

Anyone knows what this is? Why I can't use this free space?

Thanks in advance

Take a look at this thread and the answer I gave. The same applies to you.

Ok thanks... As I supposed that's the only way to solve this, but I can't realy format my Mac know.

But i really need to work on Linux (against my will:S) in this project so do you recommend to use the free space to install it or virtual machine/VMWare?

Use VM software as that is the easiest way. For example: Fusion has an already pre-built virtual appliance for Ubuntu. See this LINK. Just download and install. Of course you need a legal copy of VMWare Fusion. Latest version is 3.0.
