My installation is Fedora 18 and Windows 8, and I need room for another system.
I have a very delicate task: I need to move my primary /boot partition inside an extended partition which contains all other system's partitions (home, root and swap). Layout is as follows:
Dispositivo Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1 * 2048 718847 358400 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT /dev/sda2 718848 84604927 41943040 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT /dev/sda3 84604928 85628927 512000 83 Linux /dev/sda4 85628928 883879935 399125504 5 Estendida /dev/sda5 85630976 92938239 3653632 82 Linux swap / Solaris /dev/sda6 92940288 197797887 52428800 83 Linux /dev/sda7 197799936 883879935 343040000 83 Linux
If an image is preferred (it is in portuguese):
I have much more empty space than used space, if needed, as seen in the screenshot, and I also have an external drive with more than 250G free. I want to have boot partition inside the extended, if possible. Fedora by default uses the most possible primary partition quantity, and I want to free one up to install another OS. Another very wanted solution would be to move Windows' partitions inside an exclusive extended partition, as I think Windows' boot partition is not used (I use GRUB as bootloader).
