Installing Linux Mint beside Deepin 15.11


Hello,

- I'm trying to install Linux Mint 20 beside Deepin 15.11

- I'm following this tutorial

- I'm trying to use as little partitions as possible, to make things less cluttered!

- in steps, I need to understand what "EFI System Partition" is, why do this?

- also, what is " Device for boot loader installation", and why do this?

- is doing these steps safe for my existing Deepin installation?

- is there a clear way of how to do this? (considering deepin, etc...)

- please consider I already created a bootable USB using Etcher
