That Factory image should be the system As It Was Shipped from the Factory. So when using it to Reinstall the OS it will also reinstall all things that originally came on your system when New and removing all other things in the process. So do not use it unless you want or need to take the system back to the state it was when you first took the system out of the box it came in. I suggested you make it just in case of problems. It is always good to have that disc.
Could you please explain why you want to Dual boot Windows and Ubuntu? What is your purpose for installing Ubuntu.
Sorry to say this but you do not seem to computer savvy, nothing wrong with that most people aren't. So I question your intentions for installing Ubuntu especially as a Dual Boot system. All Linux operating systems are more for the computer enthusiast that is looking for an alternative operating system.
So I still suggest you get VMware Player, which is free, and install Ubuntu into a virtual machine for testing and playing with before you go through the whole Re-Partitioning of your drive and installing Ubuntu as a Dual boot system, possibly screwing up your Windows install.
With most installs of any second OS as a Dual boot it can sometimes be hard to get rid of the second OS and return your system back to one of the operating systems without first wiping the whole drive. Yes it can and is done by many but those people are more then often very computer literate.

Yea I bought this laptop 3 years ago. It still runs pretty smooth, I was gonna transfer those files on D drive to external portable hard disk. Is it because I also installed some programs on D drive, that makes it become a primary partition? If I remove them, will I be able to change it into an extended partition?
=edit= Or can I convert the D drive to logical and create one more logical partition?
