Dear fellows I am new to ubuntu.. I don't know how to partition my hard drive like it is on windows.. please guide me the whole procedure to solve this issue.. I will be thankful to you.
When installing Ubuntu, it will ask you if it needs to partition the drive for you. This would be the easiest way to proceed.
If you want to partition your drive manually, you will need at least two partitions:
- One (or more) Ext4 partition: This will be the location for the Ubuntu system itself. Make sure you set the mount point to
/(root). Official documentation.
- One Swap partition: Used as virtual memory. Also used for storing your memory when going into hibernate mode. You should let the size of it depend on the size of your hard-disc and RAM. Official documentation
To manage your partitions, you could use a tool like GParted, or the installation disc.
Open dash and search for "disks". Select your harddisk in the list at the left and use options to the right. If you need more specific information, then you'll need to provide more specific information in your question.
