Windows 7: Ubuntu Drives

16 Mar 2014   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Ubuntu Drives

I want to dual boot Win7 with Ubuntu. I have 3 drives, disk0 E drive, disk2 F and disk1 C (with Win7). I would like to partition F, but don't understand which is which in Ubuntu /dev/sda1, /dev/sda2, /dev/sda3. Am I correct in assuming sda1 2 3 is the same as disk 1 2 3 and I want to partition /dev/sda2 ?

Thx :)

The first floppy drive is named /dev/fd0.

The second floppy drive is named /dev/fd1.

The first SCSI disk (SCSI ID address-wise) is named /dev/sda.

The second SCSI disk (address-wise) is named /dev/sdb, and so on.

The first SCSI CD-ROM is named /dev/scd0, also known as /dev/sr0.

The master disk on IDE primary controller is named /dev/hda.

The slave disk on IDE primary controller is named /dev/hdb.

The master and slave disks of the secondary controller can be called /dev/hdc and /dev/hdd, respectively. Newer IDE controllers can actually have two channels, effectively acting like two controllers.
