Hey, I want to install dual boot linux and windows 7, and already I installed windows 7, but right now there are 4 primary partitions on my HDD and I can't make more primary partitions for linux. The partitions are as below:
1) C: which contain windows 7 system files (about 126 GB)
2) D: which is a data partion (about 730 GB)
3) A no name partition with FAT32 and 1 GB capacity (Active boot)
4) A no name partition with NTFS and 1 GB capacity (OEM partition)

Is it possible for me to delete one of 1 GB partition for making an extended partition for linux?

That's two primary partitions... but you've probably got a recovery partition and a boot one.

I'd suggest burning your recovery discs/USB stick, then removing the recovery partition.

Thx for your answer, but I just saw it at Disk management and can't see it at my computer, how can I access this partition?

There should be some software pre-installed by the manufacturer.

You should be able to get to it through the start menu.
