    unpartitioning a HDD on an EEE running easy peasy

    Dear all,

    I'm not brilliant with computers but I am a big linux fan. I installed easy peasy on my eee PC 901 and feeling nervous I did the install alongside an existing windows installation. You guessed it, I now never use windows.

    However, I have run out of space on the easy peasy installation on the HDD. I do not have anything I need to keep on the Windows partition. Is there an easy way to assimilate this partition into easy peasy to help me or is it better to start from scratch.

    Many thanks in advance,

    dgrs

    Not familiar with "Easy Peasy" but: If you boot your computer with any Linux Live CD or Live USB (such as an Ubuntu Live USB) then you can use the GParted Partition Editor to delete your Windows partition and expand your Easy Peasy partition to fill the empty space.

    I strongly recommend backing up all data to an external drive before proceeding!

    Gparted info, help, and screenshots.
