    Re: Partitioning/Swap Disk Problems with New Install...

    I have always created partitions with gparted, then use manual install, choose my partition, set it to / (root), format to ext4 and it installs. I already have swap so it finds that. And I have all my data in other partitions so I usually am installing in just a 25GB partition.

    So if I format the partition, I will not be adjusting the partition boundary itself?

    If you run this and all the starts are divisable by 8, then there is nothing to worry about. Extended partition does not apply as you do not write to it directly but only the logicals in it which should be aligned.

    sudo parted /dev/sda unit s print
