i know what your problem is as I have had it myself. If you can successfully install the trial version of partition magic you should be fine.

partition magic works fine on vista. although once i had xp on my machine and put vista on and i couldnt resize the xp partition from within vista, well not even in xp. i was pretty screwed. i dunno why. apart from that partition magic works fine in vista

did you try the chkdisk? that usually sorts some problems out for me.

What version of vista are you running? If its enterprise or ultimate then its possible that you have bitlocker encryption turned on, that would probably stop you altering sizes.
