What is the significance of Location (Beginning or End) for creating a new partition? Is /boot the only partition that matters where it’s located?
Asked by: nickr
I understand why /boot should be at the Beginning. But a default installation of Ubuntu puts Swap at the End. In the Manual disk partitioning guide you put Swap second (after /boot). Why a discrepancy? Is this immaterial?
In what situations would someone mark a partition's location as END, and why?
