[lubuntu] How to manually partition drive for Lubuntu install?

 
Soo I just installed Lubuntu on a HP Stream 14 following these steps..

“Select ‘New Partition Table’ and ‘Master Boot Record’. Click ‘OK’ Click on the Free Space entry, then click on Create. Change the following parameters: Size: 512 MiB; File System: fat32; Mount Point: /boot/efi; Flags: boot esp. Click ‘OK’ Click on the Free Space entry, then click on Create. Subtract 4096 from the size value (for a 4GiB swap) and replace the existing value with that result. Change the following parameters: Mount Point: /; Flags: root. Click ‘OK’ Click on the Free Space entry, the click on Create. Change the following parameters: File System: linuxswap; Flags: swap. Click ‘OK’”

Is this correct? It seems to be working OK..but still I’d like to know what someone with more experience doing this thinks. Manually partitioning the drive was the only option I had when installing. I read somewhere to unmount the drive and then try…but was still only given the option to manually partition.

The computer has 4g of ram and 25g hard drive..also what does apply full upgrade do? Does Lubuntu update itself or should I be manually updating it? Thanks
