I'll try to keep this simple. Go ahead and slap me, but my CD drive for this laptop is just BARELY dead enough that it won't read a CD, so I can't use Gparted except while the computer is running off the HDD (which isn't a very viable idea right?)
So I got this floppy disc called PUAD which is supposed to be a boot disc...but doesn't for some reason. But I can still access it through doing CTRL+ALT+F1 and typing "parted", which loads parted from the floppy drive.
My partition table looks like so:
So, obviously I have a 20GB HDD.
Model: ATA TOSHIBA MK2018GA (scsi)
Disk /dev/sda: 20.0GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
Partition Table: msdos
Number Start End Size Type File system Flags
1 32.3kB 10.0GB 10.0GB primary ntfs boot
2 10.0GB 20.0GB 10.0GB extended
5 10.0GB 19.7GB 9689MB logical ext3
6 19.7GB 20.0GB 313MB logical linux-swap
1 is a Windows XP install.
2 is Ubuntu 9.04
When I boot I get GRUB and I have successfully set up a dualbooting system, but I want to rid of the Windows partition to make space for my beloved Ubuntu.
The Windows partition currently has the boot flag. If I delete it, will the computer not know what to do at boot? I was thinking I can just set the boot flag to #2 or #5 (sorry I'm still pretty damn new to this linux stuff.) I want to just have Ubuntu on there and resize the Ubuntu partition to use the whole drive.
What can I do / how do I do this? to whoever can help
