To expand your CoreStorage Logical Volume Macintosh HD you have to delete the blocking NO NAME EFI partition (disk1s5). The two unnamed parts (138.62 GB and 99.9 GB) are no partitions but unallocated disk space.

The maximum allocation block (or cluster) count for exFAT is 2^32 = 4,294,967,296. To get the minimal size of an allocation cluster on your partition divide the size of your partition through 2^32. Examples: for a 100 GB partition the minimal size is 100,000,000,000 bytes/4,294,967,296=~23.3 bytes. Since the smallest device block size is 512 bytes, the ...


Ok, I figured out an alternative method - I was able to combine the partitions using the diskutil mergePartitions command (e.g. diskutil mergePartitions JHFS+ MacHD disk0s2 disk0s4). Hope that helps anyone else with the same issue!

From the screenshots you provided, you are using a drive constellation Apple calls a Fusion drive. It consists of an SSD and a regular hard drive logically bundled together. Disk Utility detects the logical volume group of ...
