I'm new to the community and I've decided to test out Manjaro as a viable desktop, but I am having issues with getting it installed. I'm trying to install Manjaro Deepin in case you are curious. My ultimate goal is to setup a dual boot configuration which should be possible based on what I've researched, but it seems my current setup isn't ideal.
Firstly, I have four partitions on my hard drive right now and it's under MBR configuration. One is for my system/personal files, one is for boot/system reserved, and two are recovery partitions. I cannot install Manjaro with dual boot because I cannot create more than four partitions and I'm unaware of the actual content stored on the two recovery partitions. In essence, I do not want to delete them without understanding what will be gone.
This led me to attempt to change my drive configuration from MBR to GPT without losing data so I may create more partitions, but because the requirements for MBR2GPT.exe indicate that I cannot have more than 3 partitions to start the conversion, I'm basically stuck.
In the end, I do not want to delete any partitions without being confident that it will not have any negative influences, but if I don't, then I cannot continue with installing Manjaro in the way that I want to. Does anyone have any advice for me to undertake with resolving my issue? Try to detail any reasoning if you propose a solution, so I may better understand why.
Thank you everyone!
