Hi all, I have a laptop with Ubuntu 12.04 x64 using 4 primary partitions (gparted screenshot attached):
/dev/sda1 - ext4 - /boot - 190MiB
/dev/sda2 - linux-swap - 14.90MiB
/dev/sda3 - ext4 - / - 78.14MiB
/dev/sda4 - extended - - 372.53MiB
- /dev/sda5 - ext4 - /home - 372.53MiB
unallocated - unallocated - - 1.02MiB
Is it still the case that you can only have 4 primary partitions in a dual boot system?
If so, all I really want is to keep /home on a separate partition from everything. I don't care how the rest are combined, but not sure it's possible to combine /, swap, and/or /boot.
Is there a way to dual boot Windows while keeping /home on its own partition? Preferably Windows XP, since it's only Windows I already own, but if this can be done with Windows > XP, I'd appreciate hearing it too.
