Hi,

New Install Questions:

Machine: HP Desktop
128 gig solid state drive
1T hard drive

Install Option:
Something Else:
Devices:
/dev/nvme0n1 128 gig
free space 1MB
/dev/nvme0n1p1 efi 272MG 92MB used (Windows Boot Manager)
/dev/nvme0n1p2 16 MB used unknown
/dev/nvme0n1p3 ntfs 126710 MB used 0 MB
/dev/nvme1n1p4 ntfs 1027MB used 0MB
free space 6MB

/dev/sda 1T
free space 1MB
/dev/sda1 536MB 33MB used
free space 999666MB (eerie number ;-)

Questions:

1. The installer default for "Device for boot loader installation:" is /dev/nvme0n1 which is where the Win10 Boot Manager is installed. Is this OK? If not any suggestions on where to install it?

2. In the device and partition list above which is displayed in the installer, if I select for instance /dev/sda (1T), will the installer automatically use this partition and create the appropriate partitions (/, /home etc.?), or do I have to manually create them? If I have to manually create them, is there a good doc where I can get best practice for this?

--------------
Install Option:
Install Ubntu alongside Windows Boot Manager

Questions:

1. With this option where is the boot loader installed?
2. With this option will it take advantage of the 1T of space on the 1T drive?

-----------
Install Option:
Erase disk and install Ubuntu

Questions:

1. With this option where is the boot loader installed?
2. With this option will it take advantage of the 1T of space on the 1T drive?
3 With this option is the Windows boot manager go bye bye? (If yes I can say good riddance ;-) )

Thanks,

Michael
