I would like to do a dual boot of Windows 7 and Mint 14 on my Acer netbook which already has Windows 7 Pro 64-bit installed on an 1 TB hard drive.
I have already shrunk the Windows 7 partition to 330 G and the other partition I want to install Mint 14 on.
The problem is that I would like to install Mint with the "something else option". If I'm giving Mint a 600GB partition, I don't know what size I should make the following:
- Swap - I have 4GB of RAM, should I make this 2GB and should it be at beginning or end of partition?
I think those are the 4 main partitions I will need to allocate space to. But if I'm leaving anything out please feel free to point it out.
