I’m in the process of re-installing ArchLinux on my new Dell Latitude 6530, this is because at the end of the first installation I noticed that while running
fdisk -l I received a message like this one (that’s not my original disk, but the message was the same):
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1 * 63 39070079 19535008+ 83 Linux <strong>Partition 1 does not start on physical sector boundary. </strong>/dev/sda2 39070080 46877669 3903795 82 Linux swap / Solaris /dev/sda3 * 46877670 144536804 48829567+ 86 NTFS volume set <strong>Partition 3 does not start on physical sector boundary. </strong>/dev/sda4 144536805 1250263727 552863461+ 86 NTFS volume set <strong>Partition 4 does not start on physical sector boundary.</strong>
I “shrinked” the original Windows 7 to 40 GB with Gparted live and created the partitions during the installation of ArchLinux with
cfdisk so what’s wrong with these operations ?
