Immediately after resizing a partition I had booting problems but solved them,
so the system could also remain in that state, with partitions 6 and 7 in
reverse order, only I didn't like it, I found it confusing, and was curious to
see how to adjust that. The risk was little because my main system is
elsewhere, on another machine.
