I powered off the VM and on the VMware side increased the allocated disk space. I did this by Edit Virtual Machine Settings -> Hard Disk -> Utilities and so forth. It then warned me that I should increase the partition size within the guest VM. and i dont know how to make the machine know it and i dont know where my CD is..

You don't need an actual CD. Just get the .iso image from http://www.ubuntu.com/download.

  1. Mount the .iso in the virtual machine.
  2. Start the virtual machine and make sure to boot from the CD.
  3. Select "Try Ubuntu".
  4. Open the Unity dash and launch "GParted". It can be used to resize the partition.
