I'm going to help a friend to build a new system with only a 500 Gb SSD and 8 Gb RAM and we want to install Windows 7 and Ubuntu LTS. The usage will be 95% Ubuntu and 5% Windows and the system will remain turned on for maaaany hours for website (not server) purposes. So please help me in these:
- Is there a need to create a swap partition, as the memory is enough? If yes - how much?
- Should I create manually a /boot partition?
- Should I go for manually partitioning or with auto istallation alongside windows?
Please be free to suggest another solution or a new partitioning scheme.
Thanks in advance
