Gparted and new install
 
If I set up my partitions with Gparted-live first, can I then do a new install into these partitions, and will the installer honor the partitions I set or will it ignore them? I'm installing Debian 9.9 on a new Dell 3670, and hoping that I can persuade the installer to skip the partitioning step.
Cheers, -terry

Yes - select "Expert" or whatever - I've never installed Debian, but never had an issue with pre-allocated partitions, which I always use.

I think yes, and even the installer can be used to make that partitioning.

Thank you thank you. I'll go ahead and set things up. will post result, hopefully tomorrow.

SOLVED, can be closed out (when I figger out how)
 
Thanks for help, Debian 9.9-live-gnome-amd64 installed quickly and easily and seems to be perfect.
By far the hardest was persuading the UEFI Bios in the Dell 3670 to allow me to boot a dvd. That's too long to detail here, and there are lots of helps elsewhere. All is Happiness and Light!
