B.3.3. How Many Partitions?

At this point in the process of preparing to install Fedora, you should give some consideration to the number and size of the partitions to be used by your new operating system. However, there is no one right answer to this question. It depends on your needs and requirements.
Unless you have a reason for doing otherwise, you should at least create a /boot partition and a / (root) partition. Depending on your system's hardware specifications, additional partitions may be necessary, such as /boot/efi for 64-bit AMD and Intel systems with UEFI firmware, a biosboot partition for AMD and Intel systems with a GUID Partition Table (GPT) label on the system disk, or a PReP Boot partition on IBM Power Systems servers.
See Section, “Recommended Partitioning Scheme” for more information about the recommended partitioning scheme.
