I have a UEFI system that I installed Arch Linux on beside Windows, then later removed Windows and made it Linux only, keeping the EFI boot partition of course. After removing all Windows and recovery partitions, my Linux root partition was still identified as
NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT sda 8:0 0 931.5G 0 disk ├─sda1 8:1 0 260M 0 part /boot └─sda5 8:5 0 931.3G 0 part / sr0 11:0 1 1024M 0 rom
Now I'd like to install btrfs, but I want my partitions to be ordered and have concurrent names to avoid confusion, i.e. boot=
/dev/sda1, linux root=
/dev/sda2, and btrfs=
/dev/sda3. From poking around in gparted, I can't seem to find any functionality for this.
I've tried googling this for quite some time and either I'm not sure how to phrase it properly, or people ambiguously use "name" to mean "label" when discussing partitions. Is this possible to accomplish without backing up, formatting my drive, and starting fresh?
