    creating two equal-sized partitions on a new ssd


    I have a new 512GB ssd. How can I create two equal-sized partitions with fdisk (or some other command) so that each partition is treated as if it were a single bootable 256GB ssd?

    no problem there.
    you can.
    personally, i like gparted.

    no problem there either; linux doesn't care whether partitions are on different physical devices or not.

    Just do fdisk /yourssd. It will be treated as different partitions.
