I've just got a new laptop, and am working on getting it dual booting with Ubuntu (I do this all the time, so figured it wouldn't be a problem).
All seemed well, but the HDD came partitioned into four primary partitions. Given you can't have more than four primary partitions, how do I get around this? I shrank the partition Windows was on (which used to be 895GBs) to 445GBs, leaving 440 GBs of unallocated space which I was planning on using for Ubuntu, but now I can't partition it. Can you "convert" a primary partition into an extended partition? I have no idea why Lenovo felt the need to partition their HDD into four separate blocks anyway, but there you go..
Any thoughts greatly appreciated.
