Hello my fellow Linux people,
I am installing CentOS to a Laptop. My goal is to have an operating system which is stable and rarely changed. On this CentOS install I am going to run VMs ie a VM for development, and another for class, etc.
Quick specs on the current machine:
- Dual boot Ubuntu/Windows 10
- 1 tb HDD
- 600 gb to Ubuntu, 400 gb to Windows
Okay, I would like to keep the Windows 10 partition, but remove the Ubuntu partition and replace it with CentOS.
Right now, here are the current listed partitions:
- /boot/efi(Ubuntu Linux 14.04 for x86_64) sda1 efi
- Unknown sda2 16 MiB of 16 Mib
- Windows sda3 ntfs
- LENOVO sda4 ntfs
- WINRE_DRV sda5 ntfs
- LENOVO_PART sda6 ntfs
- LRS_ESP sda7 vfat
- / (Ubuntu Linux 14.04 for x86_64) sda ext 4
- swap sda9 swap
- Free Space
Okay, so here is my confusion. I want to delete the / (Ubuntu 14.04 for x86_64) that will reclaim the 600 gb of space that I need. Do I also need to remove the /boot/efi (Ubuntu 14.04 for x86_64) sd1 efi? Should I just leave and it'll recognize CentOS? I'm afraid if I delete it I might not be able to boot into anything anymore.
