Partitioning to Dual-Boot

Post by Gwcraig04 » 2018/05/20 12:44:27

Hey, all,

I'm trying to dual-boot another linux OS, but I'm having some issues being able to create a partition on my current drive. How would I split my current, active partition into 2 separate ones?
Here's an fdisk dump:

Code: Select all

Disk /dev/sda: 750.2 GB, 750156374016 bytes, 1465149168 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk label type: dos
Disk identifier: 0x000daf4f

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1   *        2048     2099199     1048576   83  Linux
/dev/sda2         2099200  1465147391   731524096   8e  Linux LVM
I want to split /dev/sda2, and have /dev/sda3 be about 64GB. How do I do that without screwing up anything on CentOS?
