I hope you can help me on this. I recently bought an Asus UX31A ultrabook and it seems to have an EFI (or UEFI, not sure about the nomenclature) boot, which I'm unfamiliar with.
I have been partitioning manually for years before installing the system, because I like to have my home partition separate from the root one. However, if I partition this particular computer manually like I always used to (a small ext4 partition for root, a swap partition and a large ext4 partition for home) the system won't boot.
Letting the installer do its thing and use the whole drive gives me a working system, but as I said, I'd prefer a separate /home. So, is there a howto or some instructions I could follow in order to partition successfully?

As reference, this is how Fedora seems to be doing the partitioning if I leave it by itself:
It seems that the root, home and swap partitions are located in a physical volume, but it seems curious that they don't have a mount point. Is there a way to partition manually and set how much each volume takes, as well as formatting the root partition at each install but not the home partition?
