Dual-Boot Partition(s) - Input Needed
Alienware M17 Laptop
2.26 GHz Quad-Core CPU
4.0 GB DDR3 RAM
Hard Drive #1: Toshiba 500 GB 7200 RPM
Hard Drive #2: Toshiba 100 GB 7200 RPM
What I was thinking of doing was putting Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit) and Ubuntu 9.10 (64-bit) on the 100 GB hard drive - with just under a 75/25 split towards W7 (approximately 70 GB for W7 and 22 GB for Ubuntu). Would this be optimal, having the operating systems on one drive separate from nearly everything else?
Another question that I was unsure about with this setup was the swap area. It doesn't need to be on the same HDD as the running OS to be utilized, does it?
Also, any partition size adjustment recommendations would be appreciated.
