Hello!
I think I will have a primary sda1 for /boot (ext4);
primary sda2 / (btrfs)
primary sda3 swap
sda5 extended
sda6 /home (ext4)
Is it a right way OR should I ONLY make /boot a primary and the rest goes into extended???

Actually this doesnt really matter if you put all other in extended or use up all primaries first.

Important is that your last partition is an extended one, so you can shrink home and make other parititions if it will be useful to do so.

Another approach would be the use of an LVM setup, much more flexible than partitioning.
