In a PC where I need to install Ubuntu, I have the following disk partitions from the left side of partition table as of now:
- NTFS - Primary windows vista
- Extended - 3 Nos. all NTFS - middle one contains data
- Unallocated space
- NTFS - Primary
- NTFS - Primary HP Recovery
My intention is to add unallocated space to the extended partition. Will I be able to use Gparted to do it?
Also, can I install Ubuntu in one of the extended partitions and make this unallocated partition the home partition for Ubuntu. I am not able to add new partition in this unallocated space as disk manager in vista throws up an error no free disk space to complete the operation. I read in some forum that OEM installations allow only 3 primary partitions and one extended or 4 primary ones. Is it true for OEM's only or its a universal rule?
