I have ubuntu 16.04 and am trying to install ubuntu studio with a duel boot. I have gparted live -0.26.0-2-1686.iso on a dvd to re size my partition for the install of studio. I can get to the menu for gparted so I guess I have the bios set up correctly. However, it won't run. What do I do?
Also, as far as partitioning goes, I have 500gigs I want to split in half. What is the correct way of doing that?
P.S. thanks for all the help on my previous posts.
The /dev/sda/ ext 4 / 463 gigabyte partition is the one you would want to shrink.
are you saying I can move my part. during the studio install?
No. I'm saying that you can resize your partition during the studio install to make room for the Ubuntu Studio install.....but before you do that try downloading g-parted again and check the integrity of that .iso before you burn it.
-::-If the signatures don't match don't burn it to CD.-::-
Pays to read the doco - especially when you don't know what you are doing. The gparted site has links to the user manual and in that it has tips for people having problems booting - see here.
Also has a link for the checksums on the download page, but I didn't see any explanation of how to use them - a shortcoming of the (gparted) developers.
I would suggest using "safe graphics" mode as in that link. If that doesn't work, reboot and try "failsafe" - both are in a sub-menu of "Other Modes".
