It seems you are right with your assumption:
Windoof once more seems to play ugly on strange ground !?
I will give a try with gparted 0.3.4.11 today ...
... but I fear it will end the same way like my other tools. ;-(
Mentally every try to hlep is very appreciated and welcome ! ;-D
About manual partitioning:
I just re-installed this system completely from scratch as original
from manufacturer and dislike to repeat again. ;-(
May be, as another feedback too mentioned / recommended this
I really fear I will have to. ;-((
Cheers and thanks to all the other feedback/s too
