I have 500 GB internal drive in my laptop and want to make clean install of Windows 7 and Ubuntu (12.04, when it releases on 23rd April 2012), I've planned following layout.
- Windows Partition (50 GB)
- Ubuntu Partition (20 GB)
- Rest of available space divided in 3 equal partitions, which will be available in both OS.
During Windows installation, it doesn't allow me to create these 5 partitions partitions, and after installation completes, I need to "extend" the rest of Unallocated Space to create additional partitions.
How can I perform such partition scheme (5 partitions, of which 2 for OS installs) before I install any of the OS (like using Gparted instead)? such that I can dual boot and have 3 drives common for both operating systems.
