I came here from @abhishek 's post -
[Beginners Guide To Install Windows 10 With Ubuntu in Dual Boot]
Actually, I have never done this before so I am a bit paranoid about it.
I was studying other blogs and tutorials too on the internet and was quite confused as to which procedure to follow.
I would be grateful if you all could help out…
System specifications -
Lenovo E0IN Ideapad S340 Laptop (AMD Ryzen 7-3700U/8GB RAM/1TB HDD + 256GB SSD/Windows 10)
My main query was -
What kind of partitioning would you suggest to someone with 250 gb ssd and 1 tb hdd ?
There is some really good discussion here - https://askubuntu.com/questions/1166128/dual-booting-windows-10-and-ubuntu-on-128-gb-ssd-and-1tb-hdd-drive-what-is-the?answertab=votes#tab-top
Some other doubts I had -
- Some tutorials on the internet mention creating a /boot/efi system partition as well for uefi mode. Why wasn’t it required for this tutorial?
- Also, it is mentioned that the swap partition and efi partition should be at the beginning or end of the disk to enhance access time though in this tutorial you have defined partitions in the order root, swap, home. Would love to know your opinion regarding this.
- Different tutorials seem to be using different partition types - logical partition vs primary partition (it would be great if you could share your insight)
I would be really grateful if you could help. Thanks a lot!
