OK, so it may not be the most common thing you would do, but I had left an area of my hard disk empty and without partitioned so that when I had settled in, I could use it for whatever would benefit most from the space.
- Partition 1 – Windows Vista C:
- Above mentioned empty space
- Partition 2 – Ubuntu Studio
- Extended Partition:
Linux Swap Partition
Gaming Partition G:
- Pop in your installation disk and boot to it (if you don’t have it any more.. download a new one… it’s Linux for goodness sake 🙂
- Choose the recovery option and then open a console on the partition of your linux installation (you should know this, having just edited the partition)
- If use an older version of grub you will first need to edit your menu.lst file to point to the correct partitions.
- Finally, just reinstall Grub. In the following example, my linux root is sda3 and sda is the boot disk:
sudo grub > root (hd0,2)
> setup (hd0)
- Now just reboot and breath a sigh of relief 🙂
