I bought a laptop with this fancy SSD drive, fancy new UEFI aso. I figured at first Windows out Ubuntu in but after doing 3 DoA on 3 laptops in one day I realized that maybe keeping Windows could come in handy. So dual boot it is. And this is what I've got:
Disk 1 - 500 Gb HD
- 300 Mb Windows only says "Healthy" don't know what it's for.
- 600 Mb "Healthy (EFI partition)"
- 186.30 Gb NTFS "OS (C:)" "Healthy (Boot, Page File, Crash Dump, Primary Partition)"
- 258.45 Gb NTFS "Data (D:)" "Healthy"
- 20.00 Gb "Healthy (Recovery Partition)"
Disk 2 - 24 Gb SSD
- 4.00 Gb "Healthy (OEM Partition)"
- 18.36 Gb "Healthy (Primary Partition)"
So I'm not sure what the first partition on each drive does (the 300 Gb on the HD and the OEM Partition on the SSD. Nor do I know what Data (D:). I think the 2nd partition on the SSD is for some speedup of Windows.
I'm debating if I should shrink the OS (C:) drive to around 120 GB or so. Clear the Data (D:) and also use the whole SSD for Ubuntu. That would leave me 24 Gb for e.g. / on the SSD and some 320 Gb on the HD for /home and swap. Is this a reasonable setup? Do I need to configure fstab for the SSD differently to a HD?
