I have a T61 and had a problem with trying to reinstall the OS (Vista) from the recovery partition. Lenovo was nice enough to send me "Recovery CDs." However, while I was waiting for them, I needed to use my computer so I made a partition and loaded Ubuntu. The problem is that it looks like if I use the Recovery Disks, I will be forced to wipe out the partition that has Ubuntu on it. I spent a lot of time installing Ubuntu and I like some of its features and I don't want to loose it. I would like to set up a duel boot on my machine but I don't know if its possible with out installing Vista and loosing everything that I've done, then partitioning again and reinstalling Linux.
Question: Does anyone know if I can save my partition and at the same time recover Vista with the CDs on only the other partition?
Any help would be on this would be great. Thanks.
