I just received my Lenovo Thinkpad T440s. I would like to install Ubuntu on it. I would like to keep the option of using Windows through a VM on my system. Here are my questions
a) Lenovo did not ship me the OS discs. Is it possible for me to create a Windows installation media from the recovery partition?
b) What are all the partitions that I can get rid off once I have a recovery media created.
- Would the installation media created from the recovery partition help me get rid off all the bloatware installed along?
a) I don't see any license key for Windows unlike my Dell laptops, will I be able to install the Windows in a VM using the installation media created from the recovery partition?
b) If I cannot install this version of Windows in a VM what would be the best way to dual boot the system using Grub (I think T440s uses UEFI)?
c) Are there any instructions available for one to install Ubuntu or is it equally trivial like just booting of the USB drive and installing it like any normal system?
