I have a live usb created from linuxliveusb. I have win 7 installed and have 60 gb of unallocated space. I would like to install my ubuntu (12.04) in a primary partition (since someone instructed me to install my linux in a primary partition, but need your views on this). I have only one primary partition and have win7 installed on it. Partitioning in native win 7 disk management only creates logical drive. So, I decided to use linux partitioning tool while installing.
I have following questions which I need clarification
1) If I use install time advanced manual partitioning in a live usb installation, will it reflect permanently?
2) should I use primary partition for ubuntu installation ? If yes, how can I create primary partition during installation.
3)I haven't tried a usb installation myself, but I oversaw an usb installation in another machine in which, grub got installed in the usb and not in the hard drive. This created some problems, and the installation has to be repeated with fresh formatting. I'm slightly apprehensive of installing from usb (but I don't have cd installation option either) and would need some pointers on what cautionary measures I should take during usb installation?
Any help will be appreciated.
