Looking Forward to Reinstall F15

Hello,
I never though of getting stick to Fedora so much but unfortunately i have only 20GB of LVM partition which i want to resize or expand. But if i am not wrong, there is no way i can do with any partition manager and more over i am planning to reinstall Fedora from scratch having a good size. If any one can help, attached below is the screenshot for my current HDD configuration. Thank you.

Re: Looking Forward to Reinstall F15

With this setup you have, best chances are to move your XP-Partition right after the Win7-Partition. Then you have wasted three of the 4 primary partitions possible for windows. Now create an extended partition for all the logical partition you want to create for Fedora. Gparted might get the job done.
But please post a screenshot of what gparted thinks about the disk first!

Below is the screenshot for Gparted, kindly look at it.

You must increase the size of the extended partition /dev/sda4 so that all the unallocated space at the end of the disk is inside /dev/sda4. Then you can extend /dev/sda7 or create additional logical partitions.

Re: Looking Forward to Reinstall F15

Perfect in that 20GB i had installed windows XP but its ok even if i have to remove as long as Windows 7 Partition is there. I will give it a try and will let you know.But if i am not wrong, LVM is not supported by GPARTED ? is it ?

/dev/sda4 when i right click on it i see only MANAGE FLAGS and INFORMATION option as enabled and not any other like resize/move

GPARTED is installed locally in Fedora, shall i try with a Live CD ?

You should do it from a Live-CD. You have to unmount all the partitions in the extended partition to increase it.

Quite strange i was able to resize the extended dev/sda4 to maximum but still the unallocated space is there and no options available for lvm partition to resize or increase it. Kindly please check the screenshot below

Re: Looking Forward to Reinstall F15

Shall i remove everything and do a clean install because anyhow it keeps showing that i have some Bad sectors in Drive and my only reason to expand Fedora is because i don't want to keep switching between windows and Fedora all the time, instead i would run Windows through VMWare. Your help will be appreciated. Thank you.

Re: Looking Forward to Reinstall F15

Do you have enough space to backup data, then do that first!
Easiest would be to install F15 from scratch, but please be more precise which of the partitions you want to preserve.
Make as much free space as you can to have enough space for root and data. The installer will pickup the free space.

Re: Looking Forward to Reinstall F15

Yeah i have external hdd , where i can move my data and start the installation of fedora with more space but if i may ask what would be the best way to format the FEDORA partition as i don't want to do it from Windows Disk Manager.
