I had Ubuntu (150 gb) and zorin os (150 gb). In a hard drive of 320 gb, then using the Disks utilty of Zorin OS 9 which I'm running, tried to delete the Ubuntu one, because I will stay only with Zorin.
Then I noticed that is not so simple. And now that "free space 152 gb" shows as unallocated. My attempts for doing something about that from Zorin failed, I guess because can't do much with the HDD as I'm using an OS running on it right? So even
gparted couldn't help.
How do I make a gparted USB bootable? Is that the way to go to boot and resize partition to use that unallocated space?
Can someone point me in the right direction, in a step by step guide?
I'm 100% stuck. Made the USB bootable with unetbootin, downloaded the gparted iso, but when I reboot and enter the BIOS, when pick the usb I get "The system found unauthorized changes on firmware, operating system or uefi drivers", and that's all, no joy, no gparted resizing my partions or merging the unallocated space...
Tried booting with linux mint from bootable usb, and running gparted, but in that case I can't to anything with unallocated space either. I can only resize
The dev/sda1 can be shrinked only... I'd like to have a 294 gb hd instead... the unallocated simply doesn't show any options or commands (all grayed out)
If I enter any number on dev/sda1 in "free space preceding" (or following), that is substracted from "new size"....
After doing a `mount´ in terminal I see this:
/dev/sda1 on / type ext4 (rw,errors=remount-ro) proc on /proc type proc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev) sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev) none on /sys/fs/cgroup type tmpfs (rw) none on /sys/fs/fuse/connections type fusectl (rw) none on /sys/kernel/debug type debugfs (rw) none on /sys/kernel/security type securityfs (rw) udev on /dev type devtmpfs (rw,mode=0755) devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,noexec,nosuid,gid=5,mode=0620) tmpfs on /run type tmpfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,size=10%,mode=0755) none on /run/lock type tmpfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,size=5242880) none on /run/shm type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev) none on /run/user type tmpfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,size=104857600,mode=0755) none on /sys/fs/pstore type pstore (rw) binfmt_misc on /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc type binfmt_misc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev) systemd on /sys/fs/cgroup/systemd type cgroup (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,none,name=systemd) gvfsd-fuse on /run/user/1000/gvfs type fuse.gvfsd-fuse (rw,nosuid,nodev,user=fernando) /dev/sdb1 on /media/fernando/MULTIBOOT type vfat (rw,nosuid,nodev,uid=1000,gid=1000,shortname=mixed,dmask=0077,utf8=1,showexec,flush,uhelper=udisks2)
I guess what I need is to delete the sda2 partition, how do I do that?
