So I've bought a new laptop (lenovo x1 yoga, win10) and want to set up dual-boot.
Having completely separated windows and linux on my last laptop, I'd like to be smarter, this time.
Meaning, I should like
- a windows partition
- a linux partition
- probably going to need some swap partition for linux
- a shared data partition
this is what win10's partitioning tool currently lists as partitions
- 260MB EFI-System partition (primary partition)
- Windows (C:) 475GB NTFS
- boot partition
- swap file
- crash dump
- primary partition
- 1000MB Recovery Partition (primary partition)
Now, I don't know anything about partitioning, but I remember overhearing that a hard drive can support only four primary partitions.
With a setup like this and my not wanting to touch the EFI or recovery partitions, can I still set up the dual boot the way I intend to? How?
