 Hello everyone. I've just bought IdeaPad Y530 and I want to remove Vista from it. I would like to remove both Windows partitions and leave only this hidden one.I would like to install as well GRUB linux loader as a default loader (MBR). My question is : Is it possible to do those things without losing possibility to install VISTA from the hidden partition. IF yes then how to do it? I've got several doubts. Changing partition size, removing VISTA loader from MBR. Even I dislike VISTA, I paid for this soft so I want to keep it. Can I ask a little help?

The Best Answer
