No you need PM 9 to work with Vista. The only one i know of is Acronis Disk Director. Other than that you will have to use something like GParted.

I've found a nice partition manager boot CD, called Parted Magic. Give it a go, might work.

Strangely enough. There doesnt seem to be any. I wonder why Symantec pulled it. I know it was out there. There was 1 torrent with it that i found. But i think it was bogus.

Maybe it was PM 8.5 that was Vista compatible. I thought for sure i had PM9 somewhere....
