I recently installed xubuntu 12.04 alongside win7 on my eee pc. Problem is, the netbook is shipped with all primary partitions used, so I had to mess around in my partitions. In fact, I just deleted the D: drive ....
I got the installation working, but now my partitions are a mess: see screenshot of GParted attached.
My problem is that after installing Windows 8.1 that 350MB Recover Partition appeared in between the C:\ Drive and my 100GB free space. Is it possible to "move" (copy) everything in the 350MB partition to the end of the free space, so I can merge C:\ with 100GB Free Space?
im sorry i know this is not the place but im kinda dead in the water here. so i'm completely new to linux an i wanted to install fedora 19 with my windows 7 (dual boot) but when i go through the installation process it only shows my harddrive(not partitions) and says that there is 37 gig available for u an 17 mb available for us and says that there is not enough space on my hard drive.
I have already created my bootable flash drive and checked out Ubuntu. I want to install it along side my Windows 8.1 Pro. I have a 1 terabyte hard drive. On this drive I have a 2 windows partitions and 195 gigabyte partition.
When I run the installation it does not see any partitions at all and just sees the whole drive as being free space.
Well, i'm no computer genius, I need help.
I want to merge all my partitions into 1 and then format, i will be installing ubuntu again, i just need to wipe everything out, i just don't know how to merge these partitions, i dont even know what they are for.
I just wanted to try Ubuntu and I downloaded the .iso file.
I want to have both windows and Linux on my PC and although I read the tutorials and other topics in the site, I didn't get the answer to one question.
For installing it alongside Windows (assume that Windows is in drive C), and not installing it in the same drive, But in drive G for example, do I have to format that drive or that will n
