I am planning on putting ubuntu on my gaming rig. Right now I have a 240 GB SSD with Windows 10 installed and a 4TB HDD for storage of my Steam library. I would like to come back from the dark side and replace Windows with Ubuntu. Dose anyone have any recommendations on a prtitopning sceem that would allow me to put ubuntu on my SSD and my games and files on my HDD
OS on SSD and Data on HDD
Ubuntu installed on the SSD should be able to access the games on the HDD OK. You can also put your Ubuntu "/home" partition on the HDD to save SSD space.
During the install when partitioning use "Something else". create your "/" root partition on the SSD and your "/home" partition on the HDD.
Alternatively you can install to the SSD and then create a "/home" partition on the HDD, then give the path to the new home in /etc/fstab.
