Thank you! Here is the partition scheme for my laptop with 8GB Ram and 256GB SSD.
size: 256MB / type: ef00 / mkfs.vfat
size: 512MB / type: 83 / mkfs.ext4
size:10GB / type: 82
- / (root)
size: 20GB / type: type:83 / mkfs.ext4
size: 15GB / type: type:83 / mkfs.reiserfs
size: Rest / type: type:83 / mkfs.ext4
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!!!
