If I were you I would get rid off that partion schema and would
change it to
GUID partioning ! I don't know if it's able to do without new installation !
I have only nominal familiarity with partitioning tools other than that which I've
been using cross-platform for two decades exclusively, DFSee, which is not
FOSS. Because DFSee can make this conversion, I have to think others can do it as
In my view/with my understanding: if you ever get in the position/the
do an new install with new partioning your /home on an logical partition is in
danger. - maybe I'm wrong ?! -
If you move to GUID partioning you circumvent the barrier of 4
OR 3 prim. plus x logical.
That's 4 primaries: 3 normal primaries, plus a primary called extended. It is the
extended which "contains" logicals. The extended is actually a chain of sectors
that delineate one logical partition, and optionally point to a next sector in the
You simply get more then 4 primary partitions. - don't know the
you need a partition named "Bios Boot" with 1-2 MB size as
a first (?)
Technically, much less than 1MB is needed, but not using a multiple of 1MB would
normally disrupt conventional partitioning's sector alignment:
