是否需要刪除恢復分區?

我的HP筆記本電腦上裝有Windows 7,我想安裝Ubuntu。

我試圖縮小引導和系統分區,但不允許我將分區縮小到97 MB以上。是否需要刪除恢復分區?

我想知道如何將此恢復保存在CD或DVD上,以保持恢復而不丟失。

Usually there's a tool on the Windows desktop that facilitates the creation of recovery CDs, it will drive the cd burner program etc, prompt for extra blanks. Just read your documentation or visit your vendor's support page. Also, it's a good idea to test these discs before you wipe out that partition. If it were me, I would leave the recovery partition alone and shrink the windows partition instead.

You might consider using Clonezilla live CD http://clonezilla.org/clonezilla-live.php

To copy that "recovery" partition to DVD then safely remove the partition without worries.

If you want your windows 7 operational you must not touch that partition.

If you simply remove it then your windows 7 won't boot ....

If you remove it carefully you'll be unable to use the recovery tools afterwards.

You can't backup that partition in order to deport it for later use on CD.

You Have various choices :

  • Removing the partition carefully understanding that I'll disable you some features of windows such as : bitlocker and recovery tools. And you understand too that you can loose all your windows install. There is no guarantee you'll be able to run windows 7 after this procedure : http://itcookbook.net/blog/removing-windows-7-recovery-partition
  • Re install Windows 7 so that it does not create the recovery partition ... Witch is safer way to do it : Create an NTFS partition that fit all the hard drive with gparted on ubuntu live, install windows and say yes when it ask you for creating supplementary partitions. After the installation of windows install your ubuntu with shrinking the windows partition.
  • Last option : shrink the windows partition, leave recovery partition as it is and install ubuntu.

Best regards,

I know this is a old post but I have seen Windows not let you shrink very much like you said. Can't shrink more than 97 MB. A lot of the time this is due to your system needing a defrag. Most often a defrag will fix this issue.

If you want to back up your HD, try Trinity Rescue Kit. It has features that will let you clone your hard drive even over a network or you can use any number of drive cloners to make a complete copy of your hard drive.

I hope this helps the next person who has this issue.
