I'm trying to create a dual-boot machine, having Linux Mint 12 installed already. I have only one partition that occupies the whole hdd space. I want to cut some space from it and create a new partition for windows, but in gparted all options for this partition (delete, resize/move) are disabled. What should I do to create the new partition?
