[ubuntu] Dual-Booting Compaq Presario CQ56

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – hey, i am trying to dual boot my laptop so i can have ubuntu and windows 7 running alongside each other. i have deleted the 'hp_tools' partition in windows and shrunk the 'C:' partition so i had a partition to install ubuntu on, but when i go to install ubuntu, it says there is an extra partition that is 1mb in size, with a flag of system, and the drive i created is recognized as unusable data! what should i do? do i just delete the 1mb partition in ubuntu then install or what?
