    Grub fails to install using this method

    Could you please post how to do the same partitioning (the choice “something else”) with the use of LVM? Looks like the choice “Physical volume for LVM” is missing.

    I have two drives, I am trying to install in the second drive, the utility that sets up the file system uses part of the information from the first drive and it cannot be deleted. The trial and error process of trying to get the file system’s physical position for best performance takes too much time. I am tempted to give up on Ubuntu all-together.

    Thanks for the pictures, I was looking for the different partition types ! 🙂
    I am always amazed how Ubuntu install is so fast, and its USB boots on every device where Windows installer can not even boot. Thinking about reformat my own pc as well 😀

    This is very helpful. Tough I am trying to install it into SD Card and boot from there but my Lenovo G410 laptop bios seems to only recognize USB not and SDC. Anyone tried to install it in SDC? If not then I will just install and boot from USB then. I really wanted to start using Xubuntu on my laptop. Dual boot Win10 and Xubuntu. Help needed.

    Lenovo G410 – set to Legacy to boot from USB
    SanDisk SDC 16GB – wanted to boot and install it here but SDC not recognized, do I need to have to use software to boot from here? what settings do I need?
    Xubuntu ISO
    YUMI – used as multiboot app

    Thanks guys

    installing from cd hope the /boot is ok as i have efi here ??
    this guide was easy to follow tho your screenshots look dated are they from an older version?

  11. Mr.Anderson says:

    Good info! Thx for that! Can you give more information please?
    Why you use
    /boot 1 GB (ext4 files system)
    /home 18 GB (ext4 file system)
    / 12 GB (ext4 file system)
    /var 6 GB (ext4 file system)
    /Swap 2 GB”??
    A lot of tutorial say use 3 partitions:

    What about SSD?? Does it need swap (why?, How much?)??
    It’s wery interesting question for me and I hope for other people too. Please, give me the answer if you know.

  13. malagasy says:

    separate root partition is necessary if you want to encrypt your disk.
    Root partition as ext4 is not the best idea, I would stick with ext2

  14. Zero says:

    @malagasy do you care to please explain your reason for advising the use of ext2 instead of ext4?

  16. Chris says:

    Hi, just wondering, which partition should I put the biggest if I have 500GB SSD?

      Hi Chris,

      You assigned most of disk space to /home file system if you are planning to use it as desktop workstation, because all the user’s data will be saved under /home partition in their respective home directory.
