Hi,

Yesterday i bought HP mini 110,  I am new in HP mini products.

I would like to know how can i save my recovery partition and change my C:/  partition size because i am going to install linux on my system. (multi operation system).

Right now from 300Gb HDD i have 3 partitions, 1: C:/  280Gb which is windows installed, 2: D:/ 12Gb recovery and 3: E:/ 4Gb HP tools and i want to change C:/ size to 100Gb and rest left for linux Os.

Here my Pc information:

1. Make your recovery media and you will not need the Recovery partition, I suggest you make this media regardless of which option you choose.

2. or keep the recovery partition and follow this guide to make a 5th partition for linux
