How to resize a partition on HiveOS?

I have some strange partition /dev/sda2 of 6.5G size on my HiveOS:

while SSD hard drive is of 120G size.

How to resize it? Is it a right way to follow the steps described in this post?

Should I enter the recovery mode?

I was able to try this, for example:

[email protected]:/# parted -l
Model: ATA KINGSTON SA400S3 (scsi)
Disk /dev/sda: 120GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
Partition Table: msdos
Disk Flags:

Number  Start   End     Size    Type     File system  Flags
 1      1049kB  22.0MB  21.0MB  primary  ntfs
 2      22.0MB  7521MB  7499MB  primary  ext4         boot

Why is the first partition type NTFS?

Partition with FS NTFS is partition which you can see from Windows. On that partition you can edit your hiveOS config files (e.g. rig.conf, network config, x-server conf, open vpn …) for your RIG using windows OS.
It is assumed that you would prepare your hiveOS media for RIG from windows.
By the way NTFS partition is mountable to other NIX systems and MACOS, which allow you to edit config files regardless of OS.

So finally, what should I do to resize ext4 partition?

If you haven’t already, use the disk-expand command as described [here]( or in the post below it.

Your sda1 partition is filesystem ntfs - where your configuration files are. These can be edited in windows before booting hiveOS.

Your sda2 partition is file system ext4, this is the hiveOS system partition.

Thanks! Looks like it works. see Resizing a partition on HiveOS |
