I wanted to install Ubuntu 12.4 LTS beside my Windows 7. So I put the CD and booted my PC, everything was easy, but I wanted to give Ubuntu 200GB and instead I gave it more than a terabyte. Now, my Windows 7 has just 288GB free space. Also Linux-swap has 12GiB which i think is too much. It should be 3GB. Is that correct?
Here is an image of GParted and the Partitions:
Now, I wanted to ask what is the best way to fix all this. How can I be sure what sda1,sda2,sda3,sda4,sda5,sda6 is ? I don't want to destroy my Windows 7.
Should I just delete Ubuntu 12.4 LTS and give the partitions back to Windows? How can I do that? How should I uninstall Ubuntu and how can I give the partition back to Windows 7?
Or, should I use the GParted and shrink the partitions of Ubuntu and give the rest to Windows 7? How should I do that step by step? Is it better then the first option ?
Also, why are there three partitions sda4, 5 & 6? Should there not be one ?
When installing again, Ubuntu 12.4 LTS how can I just give it 200GB main Partition and Swap Partition of 4GB ? The first time I tried I couldn't figure out what to do in advance partitioning. So I let Ubuntu CD do it for me.
Any help appreciated.
How do i merge the unallocated partition with my Windows partition ?
Ok now i get this:
But how can i add the unallocated partition to my windows back (sda2 i guess). When i click on sda2 resize i can't move it on the unallocated partition. I want now to merge it to my windows partition. So what should i do now ? Should i do this from Windows, but how ?
