Looking to do a full clean install of Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit in the next few weeks. I have 2 hard drives: one 1TB and one 2TB (both 7200RPM SATA).

I want one partition for Windows 7 Home Premium system files (small as possible whilst still being functional), one for application install (currently running about 250GB in apps but need room for expansion), 2 partitions for users (75%-25% split), and a partition for Ubuntu 11.10 install (100GB or so).

Looking for opinions on how to do this with minimal amount of headache and optimal performance.

The thought of creating partitions gives me a headache already... Not sure how you plan to create separate partitions for users?

Anyhow, I would suggest you assign 20GB on the 1TB for Windows, and use the rest for user/application data. Then create your Linux partition on the 2TB, and use the rest for backup / storage.

GParted is a free and easy to use tool to do this. Check it out.
