I have a new laptop configured as follows:
- W7 100MB System Partition
- Operating System (C:) partition.
- Data partition, defined as extended, configured as a single logical partition.
- Manufacturer's recovery partition.
I want to install BIBM in its own dedicated partition. What's the best way? I'm thinking I need to..
Shrink one of the existing primaries to leave room for BIBM.
Boot from BIBM CD.
Check the box to Change all MBR to EMBR.
Select support for more than 4 partitions.
Let BIBM decide where to install.
Install to a dedicated partition.
My plan is to shrink the Data partition to make room for BIBM (am I right in thinking that 8MB free space is all I need?) but I'm happy to consider other suggestions if there are good reasons to do so.
