I have got an HP notebook with 4 partitions: SYSTEM, HP_RECOVERY, HP_TOOLS, and of course 1 big C:.
All of them are primary and I want to have an extended one, but I do not want to delete any of SYSTEM, RECOVERY or TOOLS (tools are preboot utilities as I read). What's the best solution? Can I install Windows 7 Pro on an extended partition if I don't have any other OS? If I want to have at least 2 partitions for data, do I have to delete one of the pre-made then? I have never had a computer with so many already made partitions.
