First of I am a total noob in Ubuntu and have never used a Linux-based system before. Just to give you an image of how little knowledge I have: I am at the point where I am trying to understand the "Terminal" concept. I've used it to install programs and type in certain commands.
To the question:
I bought a Notebook that had Ubuntu installed and right now I am trying to create a Windows partition. I got GParted running, but unfortunately my boot partition is somehow locked (there's a key symbol in front of the name). I'd like to unlock it and format it to NTFS. The 3 installed partitions are:
- dev/sda1 ... FAT32 ... 10GiB ... hiden,lba..............unlocked->I could format this one
- dev/sda2 ... EXT4 ... 452.16GiB ... boot.................locked-> this one I'd like to format to NTFS
- dev/sda3 ... linux-swap ... 3.6 GiB
I tried to format it from the Windows CD, but the "format" option was locked.
I treid the command line:
as root, but only got back:
umount: /: device is busy. (In some cases useful info about processes that use the device is found by lsof(8) or fuser(1))
Thx 4 the help!
