Partitioning advice on Inspiron 1525
I have an Inspiron 1525 with Vista, and would like to install Windows 7 as a dual OS. All 4 partitions are currently taken, and are described as:
|Volume||Layout||Type||File Sys||Status||Capacity||Free Space||% Free|
|Simple||Basic||Healthy (EISA Configuration)||71 MB||71 MB||100%|
|Simple||Basic||Healthy (Primary Partition)||2.5 GB||2.5 GB||100%|
|OS (C||Simple||Basic||NTFS||Health (System, Boot, Page File, Active, Crash Dump, Primary Partition)||220.32 GB||152.23 GB||69%|
|Recovery (D||Simple||Basic||NTFS||Healthy (Primary Partition)||10.00 GB||4.85 GB||48%|
I am a novice at partitions. Which of the first 2 partitions (which seem to be at the beginning and the end of the harddrive) can I safely delete, so that I can then shrink C:, and create a new partition for Windows 7?
