I have HP Pavilion Dv6-3120tx laptop with pre installed windows 7 home basic OS

I have a single 320 GB hard-disk with Windows 7 x64bit pre installed, and the current partition schemes is as follows:

  • (c:) === NTFS 277.82GB - Where Windows 7 is installed (Primary)
  • HP_TOOLS === FAT32 99 MB
  • RECOVERY (D:) === NTFS 19.97 GB
  • SYSTEM === NTFS 199 MB

Now i want to create a primary partition by shrinking partition (C:), when i shrink partition (C:) it will change Basic disk to Dynamic disk...

Plz help me to use multi operating systems in my laptop...
