Install across multiple disks?

Is it possible to install Endeavor across two separate disks, i.e home on one disk, and system on the other?

Edit: I think I figured it out, I didn’t realize you could choose mount points across different disks in manual partitioning.


Yes, if you use manual partitioning there is combobox(drop down) at the top of the page. This lets you switch between disks.


FYI It’s also possible to do after install by manually changing what disk is going to be used as /home in the /etc/fstab file. Which is handy when your system is on one disk, and running out of room. Add the next disk, unmount the previous /home, mount the new one as /home, remembering to create appropriate permissions, then copy the user files from the old to the new, and check that you have correct ownership and perms.

Interesting, I’ll look into that, thanks!
This is what my fstab looks like after using manual partitioning in the installer:

UUID=4c82490f-e476-45ea-adb3-5c4e7261762a /home          ext4    defaults,noatime 0 2
UUID=044E-3B27                            /boot/efi      vfat    umask=0077 0 2
UUID=21f85315-60b2-40c2-92e6-1153a00a3787 /              ext4    defaults,noatime 0 1
tmpfs                                     /tmp           tmpfs   defaults,noatime,mode=1777 0 0

A better solution, in my opinion:

  • Install everything on one partition.
  • Add the second partition in fstab and manually symlink either your entire home directory or parts of it.
