I just bought a acer aspire laptop. I wanted to install Ubuntu and dual boot with Windows 7. When i tried to do this, I accidentally deleted my windows partition altogether.
I got the recover disks from Acer, but when I tried to restore the partition, it told me it ran out of space.
Here's my partition table. I would like recommendations. I obviously am not going to be cavalier at this point about deleting partitions, but I did clonezilla my drive off and I will again before doing anything too destructive.
My thoughts are to create one big unallocated space outside the secondary partition, but I'm not sure why the extended partition's divided up as it is.
All advice appreciated.
