msaada jinsi ya kufanya partition ubuntu

wakuu hapohapo, namna ya kuweka Obuntu kwenye PC yenye windows 7.

washa comp. yako kisha ingiza cd yako ya ubuntu then restart your computer na chagua option ya ku boot from cd. wakati ina una install itakupa option kama unataka kuinstall alongside window au unataka kuinstall yenyewe tu na kuifuta window(hapo kazi ni kwako)
Njia nzuri isiyo na mbwembwe nyingi hasa kama unataka kuinstall windows zaidi ya moja...tuseme una window 7 tayari..:

-Ingia kwenye windows 7 kama kawaida kisha fanya partition kwa kutumia partition manager za kawaida tu (google kama huzijui)..
-Katika partition utakazofanya (kulingana na ukubwa wa HDD yako na mahitaji yako) HAKIKISHA PARTITION MOJA INAKUWA NI UNALLOCATED ..kwa wasioelewa yaani ukishatengeneza partition i delete ili iwe haionekani kwenye my computer.
-Kisha weka CD yako ya ubuntu na uchague demo au full install, kisha restart now..yenyewe itakuja kuload cd boot baada ya hapo..(ikishindwa inabidi uset boot from cd manually..ambayo hii ni case ingine sasa)
-then ikisahaanza intsallation we chagua intsall ubuntu along other operating system kisha follow maelezo..YENYEWE ITAENDA KUINGIA KWENYE ILE PARTITION ILIYO UNALLOCATED MOJA KWA MOJA bila kukupa headache ya kuanza kufanya partition manually...
Nimewasoma sana wakuu, sema mimi ninayo soft copy ya Ubuntu so I need u guys to show me how to install this thing.
naomba msaada wenu maana inanichanganya hii os jinsi ya kufanya partition...

[h=2]How to Resize Your Ubuntu Partitions[/h]

Whether you want to shrink your Ubuntu partition, enlarge it, or split it up into several partitions, you can't do this while it's in use. You'll need a Ubuntu live CD or USB drive to edit your partitions.
The Ubuntu live CD includes the GParted partition editor, which can modify your partitions. GParted is a full-featured, graphical partition editor that acts as a frontend to a variety of Linux terminal commands.
[h=3]Boot From CD or USB Drive[/h]If you have the CD or USB drive you installed Ubuntu from, you can insert it into your computer and restart. If you don't, you'll have to create a new Ubuntu live media. You candownload an Ubuntu ISO from and burn it a disc by right-clicking the downloaded ISO file and selecting Write to Disc.

If you'd rather use a USB drive, use the Startup Disk Creator application, which comes with Ubuntu. You'll find it in the Dash.

Provide the Startup Disk Creator application with a Ubuntu ISO and a USB flash drive and it will create a live USB drive for you.

After creating the live media, insert it into your computer and restart. If the live environment doesn't start, you may have to enter your computer's BIOS and change its boot order. To access the BIOS, press the key that appears on you screen while your computer boots, often Delete, F1, or F2. You can find the appropriate key in your computer's (or motherboard's, if you assembled your own computer) manual.
[h=3]Using GParted[/h]While the GParted partition editor isn't present by default on an installed Ubuntu system, it is included with the Ubuntu live environment. Launch GParted from the Dash to get started.

If you have multiple hard drives in your computer, select the appropriate one from the drop-down box at the top right corner of the GParted window.

Partitions can't be modified while they're in use – partitions in use have a key icon next to them. If a partition is mounted, unmount it by clicking the eject button in the file manager. If you have a swap partition, the Ubuntu live environment will likely have activated it. To deactivate the swap partition, right-click it and select Swapoff.

To resize a partition, right-click it and select Resize/Move.

The easiest way to resize a partition is by clicking and dragging the handles at either side of the bar, although you can also enter exact numbers. You can shrink any partition if it has free space.

Your changes won't take effect immediately. Each change you make it queued, and appears in a list at the bottom of the GParted window.

Once you've shrunk a partition, you could use the unallocated space to create a new partition, if you like. To do so, right-click the unallocated space and select New. GParted will walk you through creating the partition.

If a partition has adjacent unallocated space, you can right-click it and select Resize/Move to enlarge the partition into the unallocated space.

To specify a new partition size, click and drag the sliders or enter an exact number into the boxes.

GParted shows a warning whenever you move the start sector of a partition. If you move the start sector of your Windows system partition (C:) or the Ubuntu partition containing your /boot directory – likely your primary Ubuntu partition – your operating system may fail to boot. In this case, we're only moving the start sector of our swap partition, so we can ignore this warning. If you're moving the start sector of your main Ubuntu partition, you'll likely have to reinstall Grub 2 afterwards.
If your system does fail to boot, you can consult the Ubuntu wiki for several methods of reinstalling GRUB 2. The process is different from restoring the older GRUB 1 boot loader.

Click the green check mark icon on GParted's toolbar to apply the changes when you're finished.

Back ups are always important. However, back ups are particularly important if you're modifying your partitions – a problem could occur and you may lose your data. Don't resize your partitions until you've backed up any important data.

After you click Apply, GParted will apply all queued changes. This may take a while, depending on the changes you make. Don't cancel the operation or power down your computer while the operation is in progress.

Restart your system and remove the CD or USB drive after performing the operations.

How to partition a disk for installing Ubuntu?

down voteaccepted
Yes! There is a way... I'll guide you through the procedure... Here goes...
U can do all of the Hard Drive Re-sizing, Partitioning without loosing data using a Propitiatory Software for Windows with which you can literally control your NTFS/FAT Partitions. Its called EASEUS Partition Master v5.5 Pro. How to get it? You'll have to work out that. Its not that hard to find it.
Once u have the software, make your Hard drive look like something like what I've shown Below.
[······300000 MB······] [··········1000000 MB··········] [····200000 MB·····]
Windows XP Data FREE Space
NTFS NTFS (for Ubuntu)

Once you have 20-25 GB, delete the partition i.e. your marking it as free space. Once done you can go ahead with Ubuntu installation in this way.
Boot from Live CD and start the Installation.
During Installation Select Specify Partitions Manually. To begin creating partitions, select the free space and click on the Add… button.

  • Click on the "Add" button. In the new window, type 2048 in the "New partition size in megabytes" field and select the "swap area" option from the "Use as:" list. Click the OK button (your swap area should be twice your ram size - Recommended).
  • Now, click on the "Add" button. In the new window, select the "Primary" option, input a value between 8,000 and 20,000 in the "New partition size in megabytes" field and select / as the "Mount point." Click the OK button.
  • Click on the "Add" button again and from the new window and select the "Primary" option, type in whatever space you have left in your hard disk in the "New partition size in megabytes" field. And select /home as the "Mount point". Click the OK button. You are done with the hard part.
Click "Install Now" to proceed with the installation process.
