I was installing the ubuntu 10.10 on my desktop computer today as dual boot with windows which urged me to write this post here.
My computer is running windows seven and I wanted to have the windows boot loader as incharge for the boot options. So I started installing ubuntu through the Ubuntu Installer for windows.
On the second step when it asks for few options like which installation device to use, language, etc, I got confused at the Installation size.
To be honest, the term itself isn’t very much descriptive as to what it is referring to.
Anyway, the answer to the question that how much installation size should be used, is to use the maximum available (19 GB) to keep the ubuntu experience as smooth as possible!
Make sure you have sufficient space on your drive that you are selecting for installing ubuntu.
