gParted shows me a ton of partitions, including /dev/sdaX
, where X=1 through 12, plus three unallocated
Anyone have any experience with what I'm after? (Is it even clear WHAT I'm after?
If I had to do it via a conventional method, could I download an ISO onto an external (USB-powered) hard drive and install it from there? But I don't know how/if I can boot up from that. *more confusion*
