GParted and Creating Partition for Installation
I've got hold of a new(to me) laptop with Windows on it. I'm looking to install LMDE on it. The computer currently has 4 partitions. 1: NTFS 100GB partition (boot), 2: Fat32, 15GB partition (hidden), 3: NTFS 183GB partition, 4: 16MB unknown partition.
I want to shrink the 183GB one and put a Ext4 partition next to it, but GParted tells me so helpfully I cannot do that, I must create an extended partition. I cannot see any way to achieve this without deleting one of the many existing partitions, which I do not want to do.
How can I create a new partition without losing data? What I would like to do is move the existing partitions into an extended partition but cannot do that without deleting them.
