GPT partition scheme
|April 9, 2014
Posted by forumadmin
I’m reinstalling my operating systems to use GPT and am willing to do it properly this time… I’m intending to use the following partition scheme:
|-- sda1 500 MiB EFI
|-- sda2 100 GiB Linux
|-- sda3 100 GiB Linux
|-- sda4 128 MiB Windows System Partition
|-- sda5 422 GiB Windows
|-- sda6 300 GiB Files repo
|-- sda7 8 GiB Swap
Any comments here? I’ve read that GPT provides fault-tolerance by keeping copies of the partition table in the first and last sectors of the disk; shouldn’t I leave some free space at the end of the disk then? Am I missing something here?
Thanks in advance.
