Partition help

Hello, switched form SparkyOS to Eos recently, still have Sparky in a partition. Eos works as it should but have been playing around with partitions to learn. Here’s where I am now:

Partition 3 does not start on physical sector boundary.
Partition 4 does not start on physical sector boundary.
Partition table entries are not in disk order.

Using KDE Partition Manager I started out just wanting to use unallocated space which sda5 was until I converted it to its own partition and ext4; still have 2.48 MiB on unallocated elsewhere. It doesn’t amount to much but want to do something with it. What’s a good use for unallocated space?

ALSO sda1 is fat32 NO-LABEL 300 MiB, and sda3 is fat32 1,000 MiB with mount point in /eft but not mounted. Not sure what either of these are; should I leave them as is?

Thanks much.

This is probably your old EFI partition.

This is probably your new EFI partition. It really should be mounted. If it isn’t mounted when you get a kernel update your system will break.

Thank you, any thoughts on unallocated space?

The 2.48MB? I would just ignore that personally.
