My plan was to dual boot Windows 8.1 and Debian. Currently I have Windows installed.
My disk can only have 4 partitions. One is system reserved. I want to give both OS their own 64GB partitions, and have the 3rd partition serve as 'Media' drive shared by both OS (it will serve as a pseudo user home for pics, documents, etc)
So that means all 4 partitions would be put to use. Debian MUST be installed on ONLY the partition I reserved for it.
When I install Debian, how can I ensure that it ONLY installs on that partition? Because I know that it can use an extra one for swap. Also, doing this won't interfere with my Windows installation, will it?
