Hi, I am wanting to delete a Windows XP installation from a partition on my hard drive. I had wondered about going into Disk Management and just deleting the parition itself from there. I was wondering if this was the correct way to do it as I would hate to do something wrong and mess it up.Thanks in advanceAidan
just format the partition if there is nothing else on it you want to keep.
Oki dokey. Thanks.
I am just thinking, I am wanting to install another OS on that partition so if I just format it I should be able to just wrtie straight onto that partition shouldn't I ?
Ok, thanks :)
There is a small problem. The windows XP installation which I 'deleted' is still appearing as a boot option. I tried deleting the partition it was on but it still occurs...Thanks in advanceAidan
