I have 3 Primary/Basic partitions: sda1. Ubuntu 11.10 root drive (40G) sda2. FreeBSD root (20G) sda3. Windows XP root drive(4G)
I have a Logical/Extended Partition sda4 of 234GB, divided into 5 disks (sda6~9).
The Primary Partition#3 [sda3] has only 4G space, which is quite insufficient (I need Windows only for MS Office, and a few odd engineering software; so I wish to use the least possible, but efficient, space for it).
My query is, can I install Windows XP to one of the disks (sda6~9) on the Logical/Extended partition without damaging the Partition table structure and the in ANY of the Primary & Logical partitions/disks?
