I currently run Ubuntu 12.04 and Windows 7 on my 500GB hard drive. I use grub2 to choose which one to boot to each time. The partition layout looks this:
- Linux: 100GB
- Linux Swap: 16GB
- Windows System Reserve: 100MB <-- no clue what this is
- Windows 7: 100GB
I would like to install another Linux partition on here, but I can only have 4 partitions. I have heard that you can have extended partitions that hold more partitions. The problem is that I cannot create another extended partition because I have 4 vital partitions already. I do not know how grub2 works with extended partitions as well. How should I proceed from here? What should my partition layout look like and how should I get to that?
