I am an Ubuntu user since last many years. Recently, I purchased Lenovo Thinkpad T460P which comes with Windows 10 Home edition pre-loaded. In spite of despising the idea of pre-loading a non-free OS (and thereby robbing the buyer) with utmost passion, I ended up buying this one because of more important reasons. Some creep at Lenovo decided to partition as below which is kind of useless for any non-n00b user.
I want to set up a dual boot between Windows 10 and Ubuntu. However, it seems neither `Refresh` nor `Reset` option brings up the partitioning UI. As I have not purchased the copy of Windows 10 separately (though paid the price as a bundled component), I am not sure if this is at all an option. I can create a recovery media, but I am almost certain that it's going to refabricate the same layout. Moreover, if I install Windows 10 afresh, I have to take the pain of installing all the drivers myself.
Probably, I can use the `Shrink Volume` feature. But, I suspect the next time I go for a recovery, it'll overwrite the partition I will be installing Ubuntu.
Is it anyway possible to make the recovery mechanism ask for a custom partitioning layout?
