what size should a partition be to install vista 32bit on?

May 30, 2011 – 9:38 pm

I have installed Ubuntu on my notebook and i would like to replace it Vista 32bit but dual boot it with Fedora. I formatted my hard drive and i wanted to put vista on a separate partition. What size should i make the separate partition that would hold just vista.

  2. I would say about 65 gigabytes, just for comfort. Vista can take up to 40gb of information on a hard drive, so 65 for comfort.

  3. Id do at least 50-65gigz. All depends on how much you’re going to use Vista. As a fellow linux user, I can say that I use Vista rarely at all. Hope this helps.

  4. You could go as low as 20 GB, but 30 is highly recommended. Then add how much storage space you want on to that.

    When I got Vista for the first time, I dual booted it on a seperate harddrive, (only 12 GB) but it was painfully slow, and all my docs had to be on the main drive…
