Does the Windows installer partition my hard drive or does it overwrite my Windows partition? I want my Windows partition gone. I tried using the ISO disc but my laptop won't read it for some reason.

So I've run into a bit of a problem. I didn't have a USB drive or a blank DVD so I tried a bit of a work around... I created a 2gb partition in Windows, used the universal usb installer from PendriveLinux and installed the installer ISO to the newly created partition. I then used EasyBSD to add this partition as an entry for the bootloader. So far so good, the installer ran.
I've got a hard disk with only one partition I'd like to keep (NTFS). The drive has held Windows 7, XP and different GNU/Linux distros, and now all partitions have been deleted and only the one I want to keep is still there.
Hi, I'm trying to install Ubuntu on my laptop already running windows, but I just realized that a hard drive can only have 4 primary partitions (noob errors). I have a 500gb hard drive. The four partitions are the following: 1 Windows partition (450gb) with 300gb unused, a System partition from windows thats about 200mb, a 13gb partition labeled RECOVERY, and a 100mb partition labeled HP_TOOLS.
