I currently have a dual boot system with Windows 10 and Fedora 25 installed. I am want to make space to install Kali as a second Linux distribution. This is what my internal drive currently looks like:
This is what I'm planning to do in preparation:
- Shrink the root and swap partitions for Fedora, I'm honestly not sure why I made them so big to begin with (this will recover around 45GB of free space)
- Move swap and home to the left so I can use the extra space
- Shrink nvme0n1p9 to 150 GB (that is where my media is currently stored)
- Create a separate partition for my media (Photos, Music, Videos) I currently have a 100GB for all of these combined and will add around 20-50 GB extra space for it to grow.
- Use the remaining 162GB to install Kali
- (Optional) Install BURG from Kali
I'm using a Live Gparted disk for this, and would like to konw
- What is the safest way to do this without destroying my Fedora partitions.
- What changed do i need to make to etc/fstab so grub can still find everything
- Could I use the same boot and swap for Fedora and Kali?
- Is there anything I'm missing that could screw me over or make this less complicated?
- Should the media partition be ntfs or exFat?
Thanks for your help in advance!
