I had a major system crash, after which I reinstalled Ubuntu 13.04. The problem was that I wasn't sure about creating a partition for swap using GParted because from what the online tutorials seemed to indicate, creation of a new partition would leave the original drive marked as "unallocated" with the remainder of free space (I might be wrong though, but I was hesitant).
Anyway, I couldn't boot either Windows or Ubuntu after I created a separate 4GB partition from my C drive on Windows. I ran a boot repair and fixed my Windows. Now the problem is that my system can detect swap at start up unlike here : Safe to create a swap partition using GParted? , but GParted shows it to be an "unknown" partition.
Is there a way this can be fixed? Would it be okay to just right click and set it as swap, or are there some other changes to be made?
