I'm totally new to dual booting but I need it so please help me partitioning my hdd.
I just got my new laptop with Windows 7 installed and I want Ubuntu with that.
I have one 750 GB hdd with 2 partitions: OS(
C:\) and DATA(
I think its easiest to have just one partition for both Linux and Windows data, such as music right?? And further, how much space do my Ubuntu and Windows partitions need?
I believe I also need a swap partition with the same size as my RAM?
If you have other tips or suggestions, please tell me. I really dont know much about these sorts of things.
I just noticed I have 4 partitions:
- 1 OS
- 1 100% free data
- 1 100% free recovery partition
- 1 100% free that says boot, swap, crashdump, primary partitiom. (i believe because its translated)
What to do with this?
