comment Parted has no 'resize' command available
You can first convert it from MBR to a GUID partition table. The process is simple and not prone to errors. The gdisk tool can then resize these partitions. It's in the Arch Linux "extra" repo. When you are done sizing it just right, see this thread: How to Convert GPT back to MBR.

comment Windows going over the edge of the screen
In Openbox, I can ALT+leftclick/drag any window to move it (no titlebar needed, click any part of the window). Does Fluxbox do this, too?

comment How to install Archlinux on a acer emachines em350?
@kalaracey I think it was down-voted because it the multiple questions in the text do not expound upon the title question with specificity. Maybe try to edit the question so it does not roam too much. One question at a time, is the idea .

Add two tags; truncate width to eliminate massive side-scroll to view question; capitalization; clarify/demarcate code-blocked commands from each other and the resulting error;

comment Is it possible to put an ArchLinux .iso on an empty hard drive and then install it on that same drive?
@Goran_Mandic Very nice, Zoredache! ext2 partitions are also easily resized down to a more reasonable size (for /boot, 50-100MB can be typical) when the install is completed. In this case leaving a hole for a new partition, or maybe enlarge your swap partition to fill the gap.

comment Is Windows 8 Pro Upgrade 32 bit or 64 bit
+1 After you complete the Upgrade Assistant, visit Download Windows 8 Enterprise 90-Day Evaluation. It sounds stupid, but download the 64-bit evaluation-only product (expires Aug 2013), and install that just for the short length of time you need to download your ACTUAL new paid-for Windows 8 from [Windows Order Summary](mswos.com). This way, you are riding a 64-bit OS at the time you initiate the download. Or download it on any friend's 64-bit Windows system and walk the USB stick with your treasure back to your own system to install it.
