I hope you will be able to advise, as this is my first EFI install of 
Ubuntu :)

My Asus N56VB has a lot of partitions already on the drive. i am 
wondering if I can just wipe them?

I've followed this guide by someone else:

My idea was to manually create the partitions, beacuse the 256MB /boot 
always fills up too quickly on my current install.

I would create /boot as 4GB

Do I need to retain any of the existing partitions? I hope BIOS is not 
relying upon efi or other partitions to boot..

Thanks for your tips
