This seems like it should be pretty simple but I am having problems determining Windows partition .vs Linux partition.
I have 350Gb of unallocated space on my hard drive & would like to install Ubuntu there. From what I have read Ubuntu prefers to be in charge of the partitioning for GRUB.
It looks like /dev/sda1 & sda2 are to be partitioned ntfs. Can I allocate (thru Windows) the 350GB as Logical ntfs partition & point to that space during the Ubuntu install? Or do I use GParted to carve up the 350GB of unallocated space (either during the install or beforehand)?
I want Windows 7′s boot manager be the primary boot manager.
At this point have four Windows partitions, System reserved, Primary boot C:, Music M: & unallocated. Because Ubuntu will require three partitions too will the unallocated space need to be created as logical? Think I'm stuck on Windows partition .vs Linux partition, created either during the Ubuntu install or ahead of time with Gparted.
