Much obliged for the advice and example!! But I could do all of that with fdisk/cfdisk!
Other than being GUI-based, is there any distinct advantage to using GPT? I've used

While on the subject of booting and partitioning etc, I've included below, 2 Dropbox links of images of my ASUS BIOS. Would you be in a position to explain to me what AHCI vs IDE is? As well, I see that I can enable/disable UEFI and PXE ROM. What is PXE ROM? Given that ASUS laptop will NEVER again have any microsoft products loaded/running on it, do I need UEFI enabled?
