I have dual-booted Windows 8.1 and Fedora 24. But, I want to triple book now, with another not very known Linux OS. My partitions looks like this:
I know that I can only create 4 primary partitions, and in my case I already have the 4 primary partitions, therefore, I cannot create a new partition with my unallocated space. I simply want now to put that unallocated space under my
/dev/sda4 extended partition, so that maybe I can install my new Linux OS in that partition. Also the output of
fdisk -l command can be found below:
Disk /dev/sda: 465.8 GiB, 500107862016 bytes, 976773168 sectors Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes Disklabel type: dos Disk identifier: 0x6b62875c Device Boot Start End Sectors Size Id Type /dev/sda1 * 2048 718847 716800 350M 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT /dev/sda2 718848 790124543 789405696 376.4G 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT /dev/sda3 840456192 842553343 2097152 1G 83 Linux /dev/sda4 842553344 976773119 134219776 64G 5 Extended /dev/sda5 842555392 850943999 8388608 4G 82 Linux swap / Solaris /dev/sda6 850946048 976773119 125827072 60G 83 Linux
The Linux OS that I want to install is a custom one based on Debian, and it doesn't include GParted so that I can change stuff with Live CD. Any idea how to get around this situation and install my new OS in the unallocated space?
