    It is possible, but it will take a long time.
    First make sure you have a backup as any operations involving moving partitions carry an element of risk. Then the procedure would be:

    1 - Boot from a Live CD and run gparted.
    2 - Right click on sda9 and select Swapoff.
    3 - Right click on sda2 and select Unmount (may not be neccesary, ignore if it's already unmounted).
    4 - Move sda9 all the way to the right.
    5 - Move sda6 all the way to the right.
    6 - Move sda5 all the way to the right.
    7 - Resize sda2 so that the unallocated space it outside the extended partition.
    8 - Move sda1 all the way to the right.
    9 - Resize sda3 to use the unallocated space.
