I would like to install slackware 14 on my laptop (asus k53tk-sx012v), at the moment I have win 7 and Debian 7 (amd64). I would like to take out Debian and installing slackware.
This is my actual partition table:
root@amos:/home/amos# fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60801 cylinders, total 976773168 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 4096 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x125fc5e1
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 2048 52430847 26214400 1c Hidden W95 FAT32 (LBA)
/dev/sda2 * 52430848 472442879 210006016 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
/dev/sda3 472444926 976771071 252163073 5 Extended
Partition 3 does not start on physical sector boundary.
/dev/sda5 472444928 488067071 7811072 82 Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/sda6 488069120 644317183 78124032 83 Linux
/dev/sda7 644319232 976771071 166225920 83 Linux
I would like to have your advice in order to procede as follow:
to format (as primary) /dev/sda1 to usit as swap, to become 8MB (does it possible to do it?)
to change the Start figure of /dev/sda2 according to the new End figure of /dev/sda1, and to resize to 200GB
to erase extended partition /dev/sda3
to create new / primary partition /dev/sda3 to install slack 14 (ext4), to become 20GB
to create new /home primary partition /dev/sda4 to install slack 14 (ext4), to become 80GB
to leave 300MB of free space for other system
Now in order to use win 7 and slack 14 I have to configure LILO in expert mode, as explained here below:
Are there some other (easiest) way to get duel booting win 7 and slack 14?
Thanks for your attention.
