How can I resize or extend a hard drive partition after a HP system recovery DVD reinstallation of Windows Vista?

Had to reinstall Windows Vista. Bought a system recovery DVD from HP. Install successful, but can only see a 30 GB partition on a 250 GB hard drive. Tried Easus and Gparted, but can not extend partition. Can shrink partition size, but can not extend partition. Any advice?

    Doesn't the built-in functionality in Disk Management to shrink and expand partitions work in your case? This built in utility is there in both Vista and Windows 7.
