Currently, I am running a dual-boot with Windows 8.1 (EFI) and Linux Mint 16 Petra.
I would like to remove both partitions and start again with a fresh distro of Linux Mint..I am going through the Installation from a Live USB and am at the point where I should decide how to proceed with the partitioning of the system.
My machine is only recognizing the already existing Linux Mint OS, and has given me 3 options.
- Install Linux Mint 16 Petra alongside Linux Mint
- Replace Linux Mint 16 Petra with Linux Mint
- Something Else
Option 3, which I selected when I first installed Mint alongside Windows, is where I create custom settings for each partition...
My question is, will Windows be completely removed if I go with Option 2?
I don't have a problem with selecting the partitions myself, but I'd rather not if I can help it...
UPDATE: Option 2 will erase every partition on the disk and reformat for a single instance of Linux Mint. SUCCESS
