So the kernel will not let me do anything that is unsafe; whereupon, if it works then it was safe. (If only life worked that way!) Please edit that comment in to your answer (as it's the crucial fact I was missing) so that I can accept it. Thanks!

Thanks; the key part is whether or not 1 can be done safely from another partition on the same drive. All the guides I could find said that modifying the partition table should only be done on a drive that was totally unmounted, but then they were talking about major reorganisation, whereas here I want to keep the same partitions but just change one from Windows to Linux. So: can I do step 1 whilst other partitions on the same drive are mounted?
