I’m new to Linux. Followed the article on dual booting Debian 6 with Win 7. Really like your tutorials – crystal clear for newbies.
On page 4 of the article at:
in the 7th image from top, the final disk partitions are shown. There we have partition #6 (114.4 GB, LVM). I have a similar partition too. This partition shows up as “System Reserved” when I boot into Debian (It does not show when I boot into Windows). Accessing the drive requires the root password (no problem there). The contents of the drive are: 2 folders named “System Volume Information” & “Boot” and two files “bootmgr” and “BOOTSECT.BAK.
The information about this drive, as shown by GParted says :Status – Not mounted & a warning “Logical Volume Management is not yet supported”.
a) What does this mean?
b) Is there a way to expand the “home” partition to use the space available in the partition #6?
c) What’s the advantage of having this partition exist separately instead of making all the space available to the “home” partition? I mean, what is the rationale behind assigning 20 GB to the “home” partition in the tutorial?
