I have a Dell laptop and I want to dual boot it with Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04. Currently there are 3 partitions, OS, Recovery, and a 33mb fat16 partition. I want to keep the first two, is it safe to delete the extra 33mb partition. Is it supposed to be a boot partition that will make my computer unbootable. I am manually partitioning and I will make a /boot primary partition and a extended / and swap partitions. So is safe to delete it?
