I have been using a dual-boot set-up on my HP dv6, with the following partitions
After my abortive attempt to install arch I have decide to play with it in a vm until I get a better feel for it, and as sda1 is approaching its max (room to spare, but I would like a bit more wiggle room) I would like to "merge" (my understanding is you don't actually merge partitions, just delete and resize) sda1 and sda5 for a total of 64gb for root, but I am not sure how to proceed, I can't figure out how to do it and do not want to scrag my install (I got it set pretty nice, don't want to have to redo it)
sda1 (32gb) Root for Precise x64
Extended sda2 containing
sda5 (32gb) Intended Root for arch, project abandoned after scragging my /home partition :(
sda6 (32gb) Root for Backtrack5r3
sda7 (100gb) /home for Precise x64 on sda1
110gb of unallocated space
sda8 (8gb) Swap space
I am comfortable with GUI and CLI programs, I just don' wanna mess up.
