VMWare Paravirtual SCSI Driver and gParted

[Update:  Windows 2008 does not require gParted.  It can extend disks on the fly.]
Summary
gParted does not detect drives using VMWare’s paravirtual scsi controller.  Unable to extend a boot partition.
Workaround
  1. Change the SCSI Controller to the LSI Logic Parallel controller.
    1. SCSIController
  2. Boot into gParted and extend the disk.
  3. Shutdown the VM and change the SCSI Controller type back to VMWare Paravirtual.
Easy Peasy!
