Greetings.
I have problem.
I have HP ProBook 4730s with SLED 11 SP 1 OEM
My 640 GB HDD partitions schema:
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 1 2612 20980858 83 Linux
/
/dev/sda2 2613 3003 3140705+ 83 Linux
recovery
/dev/sda3 * 3004 3258 2048000+ c W95 FAT32 (LBA)
HP TOOLS
/dev/sda4 3258 77825 598959708+ 5 Extended

/dev/sda5 3258 4256 8012800+ 82 Linux swap /
Solaris
/dev/sda6 4256 77825 590946008 83 Linux
/home

I want to:
[Partition with HP TOOLS if is necessary]
Partition Extended
Partition with /
[Partition with /home if is necessary]
Partition linux swap
Partition With Win 7

I have skills to do it, because:
I have no DVD with system, I don't know what is my Key to my SLED
I think that is user-friendly that all drivers are installed with
system, I don't want loose this function.
I am after one non success attempt to install win7 and they (I think)
destroy start-up manager, so my BIOS output is: No bootable partition.
Install OS to HDD.

Minimally I want to rerun my start-up manager in currently installed
OS.

Thanks for your time.

Hi
Have you thought about just running windows 7 in a virtualized
environment eg virtualbox?

Else see if you can contact HP Support and get a restore DVD and borrow
a usb DVD drive and install windows, then SLED 11 SP1.
