diskpart wont let me extend... Whats up?

The Disk is Dymanic as it was Mirrored. We broke the Mirror, then went to
extend it.
Here is the Diskpart info...

Microsoft DiskPart version 5.2.3790.1830

DISK - Print a list of volumes on the disk.
PARTITION - Shows details about the current partition.
VOLUME - Print a list of disks that contribute to the volume.

DISKPART> detail vol 2

The arguments you specified for this command are not valid.

RE:"System or boot volumes may be blocked from being extended"

Would it not have been easier to say that I cannot extend my System Volume?

> System


What is with the 'may be' are there instances where you can Extend the
System Volume?

So what about Extending the Broken Mirror Drive? Its not marked as System..

When I try to Extend, it says it was Successful, Though does not report that
its been Expanded. A Reboot later its still the original size.
