has a 120 GB hard drive. This machine came with a hidden partition which
can be used to restore the system in the event of a problem. I made the
two 'recovery DVDs' which I know will restore the machine back to its
Some time back up repartitioned the disk and now have Solaris x86 on a
partition, so have about 70 GB for Solaris and 50 GB for Vista. But it
looks like I might have a job to do where I will need to have Linux too.
Hence I am thinking of putting a larger disk in this. I can get a 330 GB
disk, but will it be possible to restore Vista from the recovery DVDs
onto a larger disk? Or is that likely to fail if the disk is larger
than the original?
I want to ultimately have about 50 GB for Vista, 50 GB for Linux and
leave the rest for Solaris x86. If this is going to be a hassle, I might
just put XP pro on it - I've never liked the performance of this laptop,
despite it being quite a modern high-end laptop. Vista sucks.
