I have a current setup on my desktop PC using Windows 7 32bit
Currently, i have 2 partitions
C: for system files and programs installed
D: Here are all files such as videos, songs,ebook, etc
What I'm planning to do is to dual boot with Ubuntu 12.04
I'm new to Linux, so please bear with me. :)
I have some questions that really confuse me. I'm planning on having a clean install and dualbooting Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04
My Questions are:
What's the best partition setup for a clean install of windows 7 and later on dual boot it with ubuntu 12.04?
Do i need to have a separate partition for files on windows such as drive D: or just create a media partition that can be shared by both OS? if i do create a media partition wouldn't i have any conflicts in the long run?
If ever i create a /boot partition would i make it primary or logical?
Is there an order to follow in creating partition? For ex. Do i have to put the /boot partition before / (root) partition?
where should i install the bootloader of ubuntu, so that when computer boots you have to choose between windows 7 and ubuntu 12.04.
Sorry, if i'll ask all my questions all at once. Thanks in advance.
