Its quite a project to install 2 more operating systems on a HP notebook.

 

1. There are 4 primary partitions already on the hard drive, so this complicates things, you will have to do some magic to be able to create 1 or more additional partitions without damaging the 4 that are already there. See this page

http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Other-Notebook-PC-questions/How-to-repartition-HDD-of-HP-notebook-with-...

 

2. Another minor Option is to make your HP recovery media and test boot it to be sure it works properly, once that is done you can delete the D: (Recovery Partition) then format it, once this is done you will still need to follow the instructions above to make a 5th partition.

Once all partitions are made properly, you will have to move some free space from the C: partition to the other partitions to make room for the OS's and you will have to use a 3rd party partition tool to do this correctly. Then you will have to use some sort of bootloader to manage all the partitions and booting operations, Grub is always recommended for this.

 

3. This is a large project and if you have never done this before it is almost guaranteed things will go wrong the first few attempts, so back up your personal data to an external drive and be sure to Make Your HP Recovery discs Before you start this project.
