I'm trying to wipe my laptop and install both Ubuntu and Windows 7 on it. My gf is not comfortable with Linux yet.
I just need to know if there are any non-technical advise here? I am on the installation now, but when I start the partitioning there are a few things I don't know what to set as:
- Type for the new partition, I would think that would be "primary" for Ubuntu and "logical" for Windows?
- Location for the new partition?
- In the "Use as" dropdown menu where I have to choose between Ext4 journaling file system, Fat32 and so on.
- Mount point? I'm guessing /boot for Ubuntu?
I do not know which settings would be optimal for Windows and which for Linux, and I prefer asking directly instead of just taking some of the answers on Google for a not completely similar problem.
Additionally, are there any settings I have to be aware of during the installation to make sure we can choose to boot from Linux or Windows every time we boot?
