What is the best partitioning and its sizes for SSD, to contain everything related to Mint 19.1

++ For a Laptop, 300GB HDD, 3GB Ram, USB2, with Win7.
++ To install Linux Mint 19.1, with a dual boot with Win7.
++ In the case of installing Linux Mint 19.1, on a 120GB SSD, mounted in a Caddy DVD.
++ The question is:-
What is the best partitioning and its sizes for this SSD, to contain everything related to Mint19.1 only?

Many thanks in advance
 


I would make a 512mb fat32 partition for the efi bootloader (incase you have a efi system) and a 115gb ext4 partition for root and home directorys.
 
Many thanks for the quick reply.
++ In fact, my laptop uses BIOS.
++ So, what about it please?
++ Many thanks in advance
 
So you don't need this 512mb esp (efi system partition)
