Linux and recover system

-----

Hi.
Recently I bought a ThinkPad Edge E420, I want to install Linux in other partition without damage actual Windows7 system and mainly without damage the recovery system.

 

My question is:
Can I do a partition aside c: partition and install there Linux without damage the recovery system which is executed with the f11 key, I mean, The original boot system of the laptop remain unchanged? Can I recover the original system again after installing Linux with f11 key option?

 

Sorry for my English Language skills and thanks for your help.

Re: Linux and recover system

It should be okay as long as you don't change the primary bootloader.

Do remember to create recovery discs and make sure they work before doing anything.
