I was aware of this trick, but does it also apply to GUI logins?

comment Howto resize copied HFS+ partition above original size (320GB)?
Sorry, its a long time ago, so I fixed it by copying using Disk Utility's "Restore" option instead. As far as I remember the new volume was initially resized to the full size of the new disk. However, I am still puzzled why the ddrescue copy could not be resized which is why I left the question here.

comment After hard drive upgrade, battery not charging?
@macaco Sorry for being a little harsh, but you assume the questioner does not have the necessary skills to replace a hard drive. This assumption might be right, but I don't see how your answer helps. I guess the questioner would find out herself to take the Mac to Apple if all else fails. An answer here should be something that possibly helps the person avoiding paying Apple (or others) for fixing the machine for her.

I find this answer slightly arrogant. Replacing a hard drive inside a Mac should not cause problems. Try to reset the SMC (System Management Controller) as I have proposed in my answer to the question before spending a lot of money on Apple authorized repair.
