30gb is ok for ubuntu but if you want to resize yor partition, then refer to the first highlighted thread of the this knowledgebase
also if you want windows7 ultimate then upgrade your current windows using the product key via windows anytime upgrade

Re: Installing New OS in Z580

Yes. I was told warranty will be void on Z580 with the Nvidia 635M Optimus as they say that they use special windows 8 software to manage the fans and the heat. I successfully installed Ubuntu with Optimus and brought down temperatures and CPU cycles drastically with bumblebee. May be they will still void the warranty, but it is an apt case for consumer courts if refused service. I moved over to Lenovo because HP refused to give me service with Ubuntu installed on it.
