Having trouble with partitions/ initial install
I just got an hp dv4-2145dx and I am attempting to install ubuntu 9.04. SUPER NEWBIE here.
I understand that the maximum number of primary partitions is four. The four on this hard disc are the windows one, a tiny one called hp tools, another tiny one called SYSTEM and then the recovery drive. Does this mean that I will be unable to install linux without deleting one of these partitions? Are they all necessary? I'm nervous deleting any since I don't know what they do.
