Hello, I just bought a new laptop I'm planning on installing Ubuntu
(never used Linux before) on it when I get it. I also want to leave
Vista on it.
This is the install method I plan on using:
I have a few
1. When I partition my hard drive, will I ever be able
to add to my Windows partition later or am I stuck with whatever size
I choose from beginning?
2. If I ever decide to add a second HDD
is there an easy way to copy the Ubuntu OS + Files over to the other
hard drive so I could have a dedicated HDD for both OS's? Would it be
a simple process of just copying and then deleting

I have my free space made and am doing a manual partitioning but I
have a few questions. My Windows setup already has two partitions a
"recovery partition" and the main Windows partition. What I
need to know is how many more partitions I can make, I've heard there
is a limit; is this limit on primary and logical partitions (what is
the difference between these)? I also don't know if partitions should
be at the beginning or end.
Here is my ideal setup: [Windows
Recovery] [Windows] [/Home] [/] [swap]
But I'm not sure if I'm
able to do that with a SATA HDD. Do all of these need primary
P.S. Sort of unrelated question but

I would like to install Vista 64 and Ubuntu 64 on the same computer.
I have Vista installed already, in fact. From what I've read so far,
this is the way to go, install Vista then Ubuntu. I also want to have
a shared dataspace between the two OS's, so I can acess my media and
documents regardless of what I boot into.
I have a 750 GB hard
drive. How would you recommend I go about partitioning this thing
out? Can I get people's opinions on this and most importantly,
reasons why you say to do something different. Anyhow, I was thinking
of doing this:
Vista - 100
Data - 500
Ubuntu - 100
Swap - 5
Unpartitioned - 45*

looking at my disk configuration, I'm seeing some
weird things I'd like to understand.
1- On sda, I installed
Windows XP on a 20GB partition and I created a 60GB NTFS partition.
However fdisk shows 3 partitions? Why? Is there an extended partition?
Can I make it a primary partition without destroying everything?
2- I want to create an image on my XP partition (sda5), with this
configuration, will the restoration work?
Here is the description
of my file system :
/dev/sda: 82.0 GB, 81964302336 bytes

I dual boot Ubuntu 10.10 with Windows 7. When I started with
Ubuntu, I was planning to only give it a little bit of room because I
was only going to mess around with it sometimes. Little did I know
that I would come to use it nearly exclusively!
partition for Ubuntu is pretty small, I've started getting low disk
space warnings. I used the live CD and fired up GParted to adjust the
partitions. I shrank the Windows partition down to make more room for
Ubuntu and it is here that I'm having problems. I can't make the
Ubuntu partition larger than it already is. There are also two large
gray bars in GParted that say "unallocated space."

hello, i dont speak english very well. I thing i have an issue, i
installed ubuntu 14.04 with separate partitions /boot=2gb
/(/root)=100gb /home=50gb /swab=12gb and others, so i checked the free
space with gparted and i surpriced /(/root)=100gb its 100gb free space
its empty. the others partitions get informations like usage space but
/(/root) not. Could you like to explaint me whats happen in that
i get into /home 30gb free space and 50gb usage space. but My ubuntu
14.04 run very well so if its free space in /(/root) maybe i get a
resize this partition to 20gb or 50gb and put it into /home to get
more free space.
Last time when i has ubuntu 12.03 every partition gets usage space
/home /root /boot /usr /var and ran very well. i didnt found
explication to the free space into /(/root).
