I am installing both linux mint and win 7 on the same disk on an old machine, I first installed linux (I know I should have installed win first so I wouldn't have to fix grub later but well, it's done now), and I let the installer format the HDD and setup the partitions.
Now I am resizing the main (ext4) partition in half, to create a NTFS one for installing windows on it, but my swap partition will be at the end of the disk. The partitions look something like this now:
||---------- EXT4 (247GB) ----------|---------- NTFS (247GB) ----------|- SWAP (5GB) -||
Should I move the swap partition to the start or in the middle of the other two partitions? Or it doesn't really matters?
