superBoxon requires a specific partitioning scheme to works properly. Depending on the layout you want to use, you will need to create one to three partitions:
- One partition if you want a fresh new system on each boot,
- Two partitions if you want data persistence for user(s),
- Three partitions if you want data persistence for both system and user(s).
These partitions can be on the same disk or you can use one disk for each partition.
Swap is a mechanism that slows down the computer far too much for the little advantage it provides, so use swap disk only if you have 1 gigabyte of RAM or less.
To proceed, select manual partitioning:
Make a system partition of at least 10 gigabytes mounted on "/":
If you want system persistence, make a partition of at least 2 gigabytes mounted on "/data":
Note: system persistence is not available at the moment.
If you want user(s) persistence, make a partition of all the remaining space mounted on "/home":
If you have a BIOS system computer (not EFI) then use a MBR (MSDOS) partition table who is the best choice in this case. Calamares will display the following warning message, ignore it and proceed with the next steps of the installation.
Check your settings before starting installation to make sure you haven't missed anything:
When installation finished reboot on the new installed system.
