I want to install Manjaro as dual boot with Win10 on my laptop, but before that I would like to check with you if my installation scheme is correct.
Laptop info: Dell Vostro 5470
Preinstalled win8 upgraded to win10
HDD: GTP yes, EFI yes
BIOS: UEFI on; Secure boot off
Live USB Manjaro XFCE works
I have following partitioning of HDD where I want to install Manjaro:
Unallocated space of 50.00GiB is dedicated for linux, created in windows disk management.
My question is:
- Can I create extended partition from unallocated space of 50.00GiB and inside create partitions for
/swap, / , /home and use sda1 Win EFI partition for /boot?
- Should I not use extended partion and just create in unallocated space /swap, / , /home and use sda1 Win EFI partition for /boot ?
- Or Should I do 1) or 2) but not to use sda1 Win EFI partition for /boot but create new one?
- Or is there other correct/better solution?
I would appreciate your help.
