I want to install openSUSE on to a hard disk with an existing partition layout that comes from a previous Windows installation and looks like this
**[partition type Windows mount FS [/b]** /dev/sda1 primary C:\ NTFS /dev/sda2 extended /dev/sda5 extended D:\ NTFS /dev/sda6 extended E:\ NTFS /dev/sda7 extended F:\ NTFS /dev/sda8 extended none ext4
my goal is to:
- shred the pre-existing C: and install openSUSE where that was as /dev/sda1
- keep the old D:, E: & F: partitions alive too keep the data stored there for the moment
- make use of the default btrfs subvolume scheme as it is proposed by the SUSE installer
- have a btrfs /home directory either sharing the old space of C: or using the space of the pre-existing ext4 /dev/sda8
my problem is that SUSE wants to make use the space pf pre-existing ext4 partion (/dev/sda8), shred that one and come back with 2 new btrfs partitions (sda8, sda9) and I can’t teach it to use the /dev/sda1 (C:) instead & keep the default subvolume scheme at the same time.
Neither could I see a way to manually define the default subvolume scheme at installation time whether I go for manual partitioning.
How could I go to achieve this?
