When I view my disk space in Windows, it just looks like I have one big drive for all the usual stuff, plus a second little guy for recovery files. However, the Ubuntu installation and GParted reveal this:
"System" and "Recovery" don't sound like things I want to delete, and I Googled HP Tools and it sounds like it has something to do with BIOS. I considered creating a set of recovery disks and deleting the recovery partition, but I can't find the option to do this -- whenever I go to the menu where the internet tells me I should find the option to create recovery disks, it isn't there!
Even if I did do this, I'd only have one free partition, and I'd have to reformat the entire thing as an extended partition just to run Ubuntu -- would that even work? Or would Windows and Ubuntu be upset having to share an extended partition?
I'm feeling a bit down, I was rather looking forward to installing Ubuntu... :c
