I have been using ubuntu from a wubi installation for a year now and I really like it, so I'm considering installing it fresh on a new partition, rather than the ntfs windows one.
I haven't done this again, so I'd like a few tips. Also, on my current install hibernate doesn't work, and I'd really love to have that feature working on my next install.
So here is what I'm planning to do:
- log on to windows and create a partition on my hard drive.
- format above partition in an ubuntu friendly file system (should I go for ext4 or xfs?)
- log on to ubuntu and create a bootable usb drive with ubuntu
- reboot and follow install instructions
Is the above process ok? Am I missing something? Also, wht should I do to get hiberate to work as well?
