I assume you have a backup of your important files.
I'd use the manual option and create the following partitions:
2048 MB - swap
30 GB - /
10 GB - Home
Create a partition for the remaining size mounted under /Data - where I
move all the multimedia files, this way I can share any media files over
the network, without the need to share files / folders under my Home.
To use LVM you need the Alternate Installation ISO. You'll need to use i if
you intend to add HDDs in the future to create storage for different uses -
Video, Documents and so on.
