A while back I tried to install unbuntu which I later replaced by mint, because ubuntu is fugly.
Anyway, I was trying the more complex partitioning schemes, according to this https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DiskSpace
, thinking they might come handy later on, with the main goal of moving /home to a mechanical hd and leaving /swap and all of the other parts in a 60gb ssd. On the twice installed ubuntu and thrice installed mint, mostly because I was messing with windows 10 and overclocking, apart from the grub fucking up after the very first update everytime (which I may or may not ended up fixing, didn't even look into it back then, as I said I was fixing my windows install, the linux ones were more of an afterthough, that I was planning to deal with later... which is now).
Anyway, should I even bother with these partitions outside the mandatory ones? root /swap and /home.
I'm not sure if they fucked up the grub bootloader, all 5 installs failed to reinitialize as expected. The installs isntall sat on a different drive. The mechanical hard drive meant for /home also (still) has a prepared /media ntfs part meant to swap files between windows. Should I just stick to the basics or the grub problems which I'm already anticipating have nothing to do with these partioning schemes? The installs never failed, the first reboot after the first update always did - they never botched the windows disk mbr though... which I managed to do just so a bit later on, on my own and withouth any linux interference anyways.
