The explanation paragraph seems to imply that if I chose that option, it's just like installing any other .exe, and also that it allows me to boot into either windows or Linux Mint. This explanation seems contradictory and confusing to me. It appears after testing that choosing that installation method installs LM into a virtual File system which adds a tiny bit of HDD overhead to the process, but otherwise acts somewhat like installing straight to partitions on the HDD. Is that all there is to it or am I missing something else?
Also, the installation size seems to be limited to 30GB total. I just checked my home folder on my current laptop, and it's at 45gb already so 30GB isn't quite enough for me (I have several VMs for testing purposes). Is there any way to expand the Linux Mint size to be more accommodating? (Maybe this should go in feature suggestions?) Also, I'm trying to temporarily store my VMs in the 750GB hdd that Ubuntu is installed in, but it says...
Code: Select all
kentos@ablecan /media/c87b72b9-2e5e-424b-9277-0754382507a0 $ ls
bin dev initrd.img lost+found opt run srv usr
boot etc initrd.img.old media proc sbin sys var
cdrom home lib mnt root selinux tmp vmlinuz
kentos@ablecan /media/c87b72b9-2e5e-424b-9277-0754382507a0 $ sudo echo 'hi' > hello.txt
bash: hello.txt: Permission denied
So somehow Ubuntu is authenticating me even I'm not even booted into Ubuntu?
