Ubuntu: Dual Boot Linux Along side Windows 8.1 [closed]



Question:

i am trying Ubuntu as my first linux time. Now as the steps of installation i had to shrink my HDD partitions, but in every single tutorial i find it written as unallocated space in my case it's written as free space (every single partition has it own space they are not all mixed up), now my questions.

  • Is it Right to Install That way ? (the space is free not unallocated)
  • Should I Create a New Partition for the Swap or it will just create it itself ? (and if i should i have 4GB RAM what is the needed size for this partition)
  • in case i didn't like the OS can i uninstall using EasyBCD on windows 8.1 ?
  • in the following picture there is a 32GB Partition. What is that ?

ps : i know this question may have been asked before but i can't find answer for my questions some of the questions may be a duplicates but i need answer for the rest. and i know this questions is not related to ubuntu but it's kinda general and if i am installing ubuntu i would be asking the same question, thank you.


Solution:1

Is it Right to Install That way ? (the space is free not unallocated)

The space is shown as free and not unallocated because it's in an extended partition. That's fine, Ubuntu can install to free space in an extended partition.

Should I Create a New Partition for the Swap or it will just create it itself ? (and if i should i have 4GB RAM what is the needed size for this partition)

The installer creates any partitions it needs, including swap - you just need to provide it enough free (or unallocated) space.

in case i didn't like the OS can i uninstall using EasyBCD on windows 8.1 ?

How to remove Ubuntu and put Windows back on?

in the following picture there is a 32GB Partition. What is that ?

Can't say. Could be some recovery partition created by the OEM.
