Dual boot
« on: June 17, 2019, 09:03:26 am »
I like the Office365 so I am going to re-install alongside Windows again. I have already set up a new partition to dual boot.
dev/sdb1

sdb4
Partition   Name        File System     Label       Size    Used    Unused  Flags
dev/sdb5    BasicData   ext4                        243.11  4.87GiB 238.24  msftdata

So can I do an automatic partition to sdb5?
Wiil this affect Windows10.

Cheers

I'm sorry but I have absolutely no idea what you're asking here....

Not sure what you mean by that .. what do you mean by "automatic partition" ?

Why is a microsoft data partition listed as having an EXT4 filesystem ?

I just want to install to sdb5  without setting up a swap, root and home partition. Let Peppermint use the partition.

The easiest way would be to leave the space you want for Peppermint UNPARTITIONED .. then just accept the defaults during the install (choosing "alongside windows") and the installer by default should create it's own single partition in the "free space".

Peppermint 10 only creates a single partition by default .. even swap is now a FILE not a partition.
