Help needed in installing Garuda Linux on SSD and add HDD as a plus space
Recently I installed Garuda Linux on my laptop, I wanted to see how "hard" is it, to download it. I am a Windows user, I use windows almost every day, but I want to change to Linux because I think it would be better for me to use that.
I want to download Garuda Linux to my main PC too (what is currently running Windows), but first I test downloaded it to my laptop.
Downloading Garuda Linux on my laptop
On my laptop there were some things to do (my laptop was running Windows too, when I started to download the Garuda Linux)...
First set some BIOS settings...then some code error was in the downloaded scripts, but I fixed it...then the Disk download did not want to work... It was something about
grub-install...then I found my fix, I had to do an other "tactics" at manual partitioning setup...
I used manual partitioning, I created a new Partition Table (Master Boot Record):
|Mount Point||File System||Size||Tags|
|/usr||btrfs||All the left on GB|
This worked pretty well, now I had Garuda Linux on my laptop!
Downloading Garuda Linux on my PC (?)
Okay, now I know that I had to do some partitioning, fix little code, and edit some setting in the BIOS...
But now I want to download Garuda Linux on my PC. On my PC I have an SSD and a HDD (on my laptop there was only one SSD). Currently I have Windows on my SSD (and some apps), and some files, programs on my HDD.
What I want to achieve, is that my SSD runs Garuda Linux, some important apps, where speed matters, and have other apps and files on my HDD (and all the current files are deleted from my SSD and HDD too, so no, I don't need dual booting, and I want to delete all files what are left on, from the Windows).
First up, I don't know, if I did anything bad on my laptop partitioning, did I use the good sizes, do I have to add a new type of partition...it works, but I don't know if it could be any better, and, my PC has SDD AND HDD too...so how am I going to set up partitioning like that?
Do I have to do the same partitioning as I did with my laptop, just with my PC's SSD, and then I set up somehow my HDD? But then how will I know if something is on the SSD or the HDD?
I know Linux in basic level, but I am not a professional in manual partitioning, and Linux file system.
My main Questions (please read the upper text to give me the best advice, answer)
In the main Installer of Garuda Linux, at the manual partitioning, what I need to set to achieve my goal?
Do I need to set my HDD after the main Garuda Linux Installer was succesful?
How will I know if a file will be on my SSD or HDD?
Please be accurate and detailed when answering, as I said I am not a professional, I am new to the Linux it's self.
Thank you for reading it, I am thankful if you can give me a good answer!
