Topic: Can't launch gparted
It has been a long while since I've last partitioned a HD and now I need to do it again. I informed myself, and the best free utility recommended to me was this program.
I downloaded the iso file: gparted-live-0.30.0-1-amd64 and burned it into a CD.
When I boot from it, I get the boot screen showed in Fig 1 of the manual, and I can edit the options or get into the "Other modes" screen, as showed in Figure 2.
But, no matter what option I use, instead of progressing, it resets the computer.
As I have a nVidia card, I tried nouveau.modeset=0 and nouveau.modeset=1 as described in the booting tips section but I still get the same result.
I've been always working in DOS-Windows and I am trying to partition my disk to install a Linux distribution to start learning it.
Any idea of what i might be doing wrong? Do you need more details?
