So I am planning on dual booting Ubuntu and Windows 10 on my desktop. Ubuntu as my main OS for everyday tasks, learning and dev stuff, and Windows just for gaming.
I want to install Ubuntu on my NVME SSD and Windows on my regular SSD. They are each 1TB in size. I also would like both drives to be encrypted, Ubuntu with LUKS and LVM and Windows with Bitlocker.
From the stuff I read so far there seem to be 2 methods for this.
Installing Windows, unplugging the Windows drive then installing Ubuntu and using the UEFI boot menu to boot into the desired OS.
Installing Windows, then install Ubuntu leaving the drive connected. Boot menu is handled by GRUB.
Most of the people seem to say that the second method is better, but one would have to manually partition the drive in the Ubuntu Live system during the installation. I have not been able to find a proper guide to do this with LVM and full disk encryption and since I am still kind of a newbie to Linux I am worried about breaking my drive.
Some people said to simply create a single encrypted LVM partition formatted as ext4 while others said to also create an unencrypted boot partition and also one for the boot manager.
Which method would you recommend? And if you recommend the second method as well, could you provide me with the proper instructions on how to partition the drive during the install?
Thanks in advance for your help!
