Hello, Lockergnome community,
I'm currently setting up a new PC and I have a question regarding SSDs when it comes to dual boot (I've only ever used HDDs in the past.)
I would like to have both Windows 7 and Ubuntu on my 120GB SSD, and I don't know if the partition organization I have in mind applies to SSDs.
Is it okay to set my partitions that way ? - 1. Windows 7 + its installed programs - 2. Linux swap partition - 3. Ubuntu + its installed programs
(all this on the same drive)
My goal is to benefit from SSD speeds regardless of which OS I boot (without having to buy 2 SSDs). I will be using regular HDDs for storage.
Thanks in advance for your input.
As far as I'm aware, a SSD will operate the exact same as a HDD when it comes to dual-booting. There are a couple of different guides for setting up Linux and Windows separately on a SSD, as far as tweaks to get the most life out of said drive, but that's about it.
