    HP 4730s and SLED 11 SP 1 OEM


    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.
