When selecting "Erase disk and install elementary" during the Loki install, what are the partition defaults used when formatting the drive?

1 Answer 1


This is what "Erase disk and install elementary" have done in my virtual machine:

  • One large primary ext4 fromated partition for / (boot and home altogether).
  • One more extended partition with swap partition inside.

It will be the same on real hardware but with larger partitions size.
