comment A common /home partition for multiple Linux distributions
Ok, I decided to go as you suggested. Created a ubuntu folder into the home partition, then copied all files from current home directory to this new /homepartion/ubuntu/ next i edited the /etc/fstab to point the new folder as the default /home directory so I wrote /dev/sda10 /home ext4 nodev,nosuid 0 2 at the end. But now the system cannot find the home folder

comment Creating a dedicated grub partition before installing ubuntu
@psusi, The installer never asked whether and not to install grub. And arrange, Yeah It replaced the grub with linux-mint's one and I have corrected it by following the steps.

comment Creating a dedicated grub partition before installing ubuntu
On the mean time, I installed ubuntu, and haven't defined any partition to be mounted as /boot, so the /boot is inside the file system also. Will the above guide still be valid or I have to ask another question.

comment Creating a dedicated grub partition before installing ubuntu
The guide you pointed, says to type sudo grub-install --root-directory=/media/grub2 /dev/sda as a command. But from where to input this command, is it ok if i do from the ubuntu's live cd.

comment Creating a dedicated grub partition before installing ubuntu
the grub 2 installed with ubuntu will be relative to the ubuntu only. If i format the ubuntu partition, i will no longer be able to boot other Operating system I have. So, I thought having a dedicated boot partition will help

I am trying to create multi boot not just dual boot. And the main reason is, still to be able to boot my pc, even after removing certain OSs.
