B.2.2. Using Space from an Unused Partition

In this case, maybe you have one or more partitions that you do not use any longer. Figure B.9, “Disk Drive with an Unused Partition”, illustrates such a situation.

In the above example, 1 represents an unused partition and 2 represents reallocating an unused partition for Linux.
In this situation, you can use the space allocated to the unused partition. You first must delete the partition and then create the appropriate Linux partition(s) in its place. You can delete the unused partition and manually create new partitions during the installation process.
