I have bought a Dell XPS 13 (9350) to get back into Linux after some 10 years, and I need input on the partition scheme for UEFI hardware. From what I understood, one would need a small boot partition at the beginning of the SSD. I have read several instructions, but I am confused as to how this boot partition needs to be setup. Some create a 100MB EF00 partition that doesn’t get mounted while others create FAT partition that get mounted to /boot/efi.
My planned partition scheme is as follows:
/boot 512MB EXT4
/ (root) 20GB EXT4
SWAP 10GB swap
/var 15GB reiserfs
/home rest EXT4
Should I create a 100MB EF00 partition or a 512MB /boot/efi FAT partition? If latter then I would have an additional 512MB /boot EXT4 partition, which sounds weird to me.
Any input and/or comments to my partition scheme is appreciated. Thanks much!!!
