Currently, I have a Toshiba Satellite A665-S6050 laptop.


Processor: Intel i3 370m
Motherboard: Toshiba NWQAA
Graphics: Intel HD
HD: 500gb - 7200rpm

The laptop is running Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.10 dualboot. I am new to the whole OSx86 scene and have a few questions.

The perfect setup would be installing SL on a new partition of my my HD, but with my current setup I already have the maximum amount of partitions.

This is my current setup:

I was wondering what partition I can overwrite to install SL?
-The first NTFS partition, is that needed?
-And also the HDDRECOVERY, what is the purpose of that?

Secondly, I need to know that my laptop is compatible with OSx86.

-I have gotten the Retail SL disk to boot with the iboot cd, but couldnt install due to not having a free partition.

-My computer has a SATA port, could I buy an external HD and install SL to that?

*Finally, as mentioned in the title of this post, I am willing to give someone that helps me a little "tip" on paypal.*

If you could help me with any of my questions it would be greatly appreciated.
