If going for a dual boot system you may need to copy the recovery
partition or the manufacturers special items partition to a memory stick
so you can make it into an extended partition.and copy the files back
when a new partition has been made
On my HP 4 partitions were used and all designated as Primary.The fourth
partition is actually a cut down Linux that allows email, photos Skype,
and a few other things from a reboot.I guess I could have just removed
it but as it was part of the main boot system I wanted to play safe and
leave it all on the machine.
