I have an Acer laptop (E1-571) that came pre-installed with Windows 8. I then installed Ubuntu 14.04 to double boot alongside Win 8. Now, I want to get rid of my Windows installation and single boot Ubuntu 14.04.
I am stuck when it comes to partitioning my 500 GB hard disk. I made a swap partition of 4 GB, another 100 GB partition for /home and 25 GB for /. This rendered the remaining 368 GB useless - I cant save files to it and it's completely empty.
Suppose I have to start the partitioning from scratch, how do I do it? Can someone guide me right from setting partitions as logical/primary/extended to fixing mount points and boot? I know that I have to boot from the Live USB and use GParted. I've done this once before so I don't know why this is screwed up.
