You should be able to set up the Thinkvantage partition in Grub. As far as
I know it's just a stripped down version of Windows and it's possible that
Ubuntu will actually ask you if you want to keep it when it has installed,
I seem to remember that with a Lenovo ThinkPad Edge I bought last year.
Certainly take a backup though as I'm not sure without looking.
