I have a new Asus Zenbook UX32V with:
- 24GB Sandisk SSD
- 500Gb Hitatchi
It came with Windows 8 but I've successfully installed Ubuntu 13.04 dual boot and everything works great. Now I've spent some time with it and loving Ubuntu (and hating win 8) I would like to go back and ditch the dual boot and just run Ubuntu. Boot time is sluggish and I really hate and have no need for windows 8.
Looking at the disks tool on Ubuntu I can see I have the above drives, the SSD seems to be taken up with:
- IntelRST 6.4Gb (mountable)
- HST 18Gb (Unknown)
Meanwhile the 500Gb regular drive is filled with 9 partitions:
- microsoft reserved
- Win 8 OS
- Ubuntu file system
- Linux swap file
So basically I suspect Ubuntu is not using the SSD at all. I'd like to delete all partitions on the 24Gb SSD and try format it then try and install Ubuntu on that. I've heard however this is meant as a cache drive and shouldn't be used for file system?
Does anyone have any experience with this? Any knowledge of what the ssd is doing and if its safe to use it a main Ubuntu file system?
I'd really appreciate any guidance here.
Many many thanks.
