I am trying to partition my disk so that I can install Linux on my laptop, and I have 4 partitions (all primary):
First 2 are C and D, but the other 2 are unknown to me. one called *: which is 8.51 GB of size (2.80 GB used, no status) and the other one is called *:SYSTEM which is 16.47 GB (only 92.03 MB used, and the status is Active & Boot). Apparently there is a lot of memory never used but I wanted to check if this partitions are important, what are this 2 partitions used for because I cannot access them in any way, and how much can I re-size them without crashing anything.
if it's of any use my OS is Win 7 Home Prem SP1 64 bit.
