Re: How to add more space to Windows partitions?

so basically... the first usable partition(/dev/sda1) has a windows os on it and also has a "/boot" label on it, but the fresh linux install wants to install Grub on /dev/sda, so should i change it to /dev/sda1 or just leave it to the default /dev/sda?

[SOLVED] How to add more space to Windows partitions?

i have similar partitions like on this picture here:
download/file.php?id=38703&mode=view

so how could i add more space to sda2 and sda3 from sda5 and sda6? (with gparted)
(i have swap as sda7, so sda6 would be like the /home partition in my case...)
