I have a 500GB hard drive, internal, and it is split as follows:
Partition Type Mount Point Size Used Flags 1. /dev/sda1 ntfs /media/BackupHD 433.55GiB 408.76 boot 2. /dev/sda3 ext4 11.24GiB 336.89MiB 3. /dev/sda2 extended 18.96GiB 18.96GiB /dev/sda5 ext4 / 12.96GiB 11.48GiB /dev/sda6 linuxswap 6.00GiB --
So, originally when I set up Ubuntu I gave it 20Gb, or as it states above, 18.96Gb. It split that into 13Gb for the OS and 6Gb for swap. Fine. Now I need more space for Linux, as I like it more than Windows at the moment. I need to give the 11.24Gb from sda3 over to sda5 to increase it to about 24Gb. I try to do it within Ubuntu and it won't let me because I can't umount the partition that is running Linux, makes sense. I am having issues rebooting into an environment where I can move this space around. Gparted on a live cd would work, but I burned Ubuntu 14.04 x64 onto a DVD using Brasero, rebooted and it won't boot to the disc. I checked boot order and it is set to boot to cd before hard drive. Any ideas on how to move this space around either in or out of Ubuntu?
