How to install Zorin OS 11 - LinuxHelp

About partition instructions in above link, be sure to create primary Home partition /home after creating root partition /
Home partition is where your configuration and personal data is stored while root partition is where Linux OS is installed.

/boot = 300 to 500MB. This stores boot information and boot loader. (Its ok if you don't create boot partition, you can let OS handle it automatically.)
/ = At least 25 GB. Linux OS partition.
swap area = 2 to 5 GB. Used if you hibernate PC or in case ram is full.
/home = Higher size the better. Stores your personal data.
All partitions are set as Primary.

Create your Partitions in this order: /boot > / (root) > swap > /home.
