I don't even... I should complain about the same thing as you, but dear god the potato quality of the picture, and this is an OSDev forum, so please post specs of your HD (and not to mention WTF is wrong with you for using a 3 year old installer?!)

Ubuntu 14.04 is an LTS release and is supported until April 2019.

'twas a joke... HPC means High Performance Computing and is used in terms of supercomputing clusters where you have terabytes of main memory....

120GB of swap would have been normal for such an install

:wink:

Actually, my OS only needs a few MB of memory and 2 MB of hard drive space.

all in all ubuntu server 14 sucked for me. re-alloc-ing the sizes run into lots of weird problems which I have no idea.
not sure why just go with /boot /efi / swap partitions like it did, beats me.

Did you choose 14.04 LTS for any reason? You might have more luck with 16.04 LTS (although I doubt much in the install process will have changed).
Also it would probably have been easier to just reinstall instead of resizing the partitions.

i had to follow the installation instruction exactly to rule out or minimize the version conflict, that comes down to installing 14.04 server edition, but it installation did not go well either due to other issues.

Stop trying to use the server edition. It's designed for different setups and probably won't partition the drive sensibly for your situation at all (if anything, since I doubt choosing sensible partitioning for any scenario is a priority in a version of ubuntu aimed at people who will want to choose their own partitioning).
