  • You first delete /dev/sda5 and /dev/sda2 to make room and then expand /dev/sda1 – Anthon Apr 29 '16 at 12:55

Although you could resize a filesystem with command line tools, I recommend to use GParted. You should be able to install it with your package manager, or you download the CD image, mount it to the VM and reboot to start it.

  • Gparted not help to me . all options is unavailable – Mehran Goudarzi Apr 30 '16 at 10:39
  • @MehranGoudarzi You need to run it as root, e. g. using sudo. Did you do that? – Murphy Apr 30 '16 at 13:29
