It is not possible to resize a partition with prl_disk_tool:
# prl_disk_tool resize --hdd /var/parallels/myvm.pvm/CentOS\ Linux-0.hdd/ --size 90G --resize_partition
Resizing failed. Unable to resize the last volume. The file system of this volume might be damaged or not supported.


In order to workaround the issue follow these instruction:
  1. Resize disk without --resize_partition option:
    # prl_disk_tool resize --hdd /var/parallels/myvm.pvm/CentOS\ Linux-0.hdd/ --size 90G
  2. login inside virtual machine and resize partition with usual OS tools. For example: resize2fs
