I am trying to install Endeavor using internal ssd and mechanical hd. Would like to boot from ssd with swap and use the mechanical for user files and folders. How do I set this up in the manual partition setup? Tia
You can start by reading this post. Any questions feel free to ask.
Any other suggestions? This has nothing to do with helping me with my problem. I had this setup in Debian and it worked great for my large music collection
look like what you asked. drive 1 boot ,root+swap drive two for home ( storage )
Exactly what @Shjim said, looks like what you asked for.
What i need is the flag settings.
That is the only flag that needs to be set.
My 2 cents …
Assuming your ssd is at least 150GB large, placing only /boot, swap and root on the ssd is normally a huge waste of space and resource.
A normal installation starts out with less than 10GB and after installing applications usually doesn’t grow beyond 30-50GB. Even with a 16GB swap partition or swapfile you’ll probably use less than 40% of such a ssd. If your ssd is even larger, well, the waste is too.
Your overall performance will benefit enormously from (parts of) /home residing on the ssd.
So, I’d do a default (non-manual) install (which includes /home) to ssd and afterward mount the hdd for stuff like large video files, pictures, backups etc.
OP: “Hey I need help with installing EOS.”
Solution: “Thank you.”
That’s not very helpful for a person who has a similar issue. “Who am I supposed to thank in order to install EOS?”
