Noob with dell xps m1530
Hello, i have a dell xps m1530, i have had quite a time with linux but installing on lappy would be the first one.I am confused with how do i partition my system to dual boot vista and keep the "recovery partition"
I have currently 2 partitions on my system
C: has windows vista which came pre-installed.I wanted to ask if i wanted to dual boot system b/w linux and windows, may I just resize C: to say
C: windows 30 gb
D: windows additioaal partition 60 gb
E:- linux [prolly /dev/sda6] linux 20 gb
F:- linux 60 gb /dev/sda7
g:- linux 40 gb /dev/sda8
[cant put recovery before it because i will resize C:.Than I run recovery (so vista will be re-installed in c: ,then I install linux in the /dev/sda6 if i want /dev/sda6 as my root?]
