http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi all, First time posting after reading the forums for a long time, looking at posts from other HP-suffering would-be Ubuntu users. I have a HP DV6 laptop with a 750GB HD, Intel i7 and 6GB RAM. I downloaded Ubuntu 64bit and started to install it on my laptop. First issue was that there are 4 primary partitions on the laptop hard disk. Solved that by deleting the small HP_SUPPORT partition (created the HP restore DVD's and also a Win7 repair disk before hand, and I even have a Clonezilla image of the entire hard disk as well). I used gparted and created about 120GB empty space on the hard disk (Hardware)
