  5. 5. Ubuntu installation HERE I SUGGEST USING THE THIRD OPTION ‘Specify partitions manually(advanced)’ Here you can select a patition and change it into linux partitions as you like Note: If you want to use Ubuntu along with WINDOWS installed on your system and have partitions C,D,……etc then make any of your windows partions free before you begin the installation.(Better you may take a backup if you are not sure about partitions) Make sure that the selected hard drive is the right one. /dev/sda is the first physical hard drive. /dev/sdb is the second hard drive in your machine. So, make sure that you know which is the one you want to format! Otherwise, you will lose ALL YOUR DATA on that hard drive; Let's say that the selected drive is empty (no other operating system or important data on it), but it has some partitions on it. Select each one of those partitions and click the "Delete" button. After a few seconds, it will say "free space". Now you will get a screen like shown below Now we need two Linux Partitions a) SWAP partition b) Ext4 journaling file system Select the free space and Click on ‘Add’ for creating a new partition For SWAP use partition size 1.5 times of your RAM size and there is no mount point For Ext4 use a minimum of 4GB for installing the base system and choose mountpoint as ‘/’(as shown in the figure)
