    Thanks a lot for this post, it worked perfectly. I have only one suggestion to improve it:

    At the very end, when you have added the new partition to /etc/fstab, it is a good idea to execute ‘mount -a‘, which will try to mount the stuff in the file.

    This ensures that your fstab file is fine. I had a typo in it, and that can be quite annoying if you do not discover it in time and only find out at the next reboot…
