/dev/sda11          36718       43142    51608780   83  Linux
I used Gparted live cd and delete sda7 ,after restar change my partition list :

Code:
Disk /dev/sda: 360.0 GB, 360080695296 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 43777 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0xb74eb74e

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1   *           1        3951    31736376    7  HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda2            3952       43777   319901935+   f  W95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/sda5            3952       14150    81920000    7  HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda6           14150       24593    83886409    7  HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda7           34793       34805      104388   83  Linux
/dev/sda8           34806       35187     3068372   82  Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/sda9          35188       36717    12289692   83  Linux
/dev/sda10          36718       43142    51608780   83  Linux
Now , I have free space (non partitioning) between sda6 and sda7.
Ok , now Partitioning this free space and restart my computer .

Hi. Welcome to LQ forums.

I am not aware of any way to do that.

I would suggest just changing data in /etc/fstab to reflect your recent changes.

Also, you can read this text.

The answer from DrLove73 is correct.

If you make changes with a non last partition,
the numbering changes.

If you want it back : then delete 11, 7, 8, 9, 10.
But you will loose what's on those partitions.

I am not sure what exactly do you want to do.

If you want to go back to the previous state just delete the partition you just created. Then explain exactly what do you want to do with that free space.

He wanted his partitions numbering exactly the way they were, since seams that after Live CD's Gparted all partition numbers changed their numbering.

I still can't understand. That's not the way I see it.

All the partitions that existed previously to the creation of the new one have their numbers intact. The last partition, that's the one he created between sda6 and sda7 has the higher number, the rest of the partitions have been untouched, what's the problem?

To word it another way: all the partitions have exactly the same name they had before, just look at the lists. And the new one have been assigned the next available name (sda11). So, what is what you think that changed? I can't see anything that changed. If you look at the starting points of each partition in both lists, you will see that all the partitions that existed before do exist now and they have the same exact name. That's not my definition of change. If sda11 had been given the name of sda7 shifting the rest of partitions to the right, now that would have been "change" for me.

If you ask me, this does no harm, and it helps because you don't have to re-arrange your fstab, or even your grub or lilo config files, depending on your layout.

Look at the first and second lists, or first and third, not second and third!

Before deletetion of NTFS partition:
Quote:
/dev/sda8 34793 34805 104388 83 Linux
After the deletion of partition:
Quote:
/dev/sda7 34793 34805 104388 83 Linux
Do you see it now? Same partition (start and end are same), different device number, from sda8 to sda7.

And all partitions after that changed numbers also.

I see now. You can give testdisk a try. I know it can fix some issues with partitions. I am not sure it can fix this one though, but it might worth a try.
