    Install on SSD / HDD combination notebook

    Dear Fedora users,

    My current Arch (I know right, too stupid to install Fedora 28 and using Arch) setup is:

    Code:
    [jonathan@arch01 ~]$ df -H
    Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    dev             4.2G     0  4.2G   0% /dev
    run             4.2G  1.1M  4.2G   1% /run
    /dev/sda4        30G   24G  4.6G  84% /
    tmpfs           4.2G   61M  4.1G   2% /dev/shm
    tmpfs           4.2G     0  4.2G   0% /sys/fs/cgroup
    tmpfs           4.2G   37k  4.2G   1% /tmp
    /dev/sda6       165G   17G  140G  11% /home
    /dev/sda3       476M   57M  391M  13% /boot
    /dev/sdb1       269M   64M  205M  24% /boot/efi
    tmpfs           825M   33k  825M   1% /run/user/1000
    [jonathan@arch01 ~]$
    Short version is: how do I get almost the same setup when installing Fedora 28?
    MATE-Compiz desktop spin in particular.
    Step 1 is removing Arch (painful, but it has too many updates ) In Win 10: 'super key' Win + R: diskmgmt.msc and bcdedit ( almost like: https://youtu.be/0_ycetcQTgY )
    Step 2 downloading https://spins.fedoraproject.org/mate-compiz/
    Step 3 'burning' to USB flash drive (Rufus, or indeed Fedora Media Writer)
    Step 4 testing live environment (all right for my HP notebook :>)
    Step 5 using Anaconda

    My question pertains step 5: how do I 'get' Anaconda to understand to install /boot, /swap, /home etc. to the HDD (sda) and /boot/efi to sdb1.
    And yes, I do miss Fedora

    After you select your disk(s) and the boot drive, click [done],. on the next continue screen use the custom(o) radio button.
