Title: [SOLVED] Problems with partitioning after Pepp7 install over dual boot
Post by: Candy Cane on September 07, 2016, 11:21:42 pm

Suddenly realised that the easiest way (for me) was to delete the other partitions through Windows.

Simply did that and reinstalled Pepp7 from there. That solved it.  ;D


Hi, all,

I previously had a Win7 & Pepp6 dual boot setup. When installing Pepp7, I selected the option to "Install alongside Windows7".

I'm guessing two new partitions were created alongside the Pepp6 partitions.

The Pepp7 install was on a smaller partition, sdc7.

How can I completely wipe sdc2 such that the partitions are deleted? I'm guessing that is the easiest way to "install alongside Windows".
I've tried to delete sdc5 from the terminal but it says:
Please unmount any logical partitions having a number higher than 5
