    Remove dual boot both OS. Clean install windows


    Hi everyone


    I have dual boot laptop with win 10 and Ubuntu.

    Legacy BIOS.


    I want to remove/delete everything and then clean reinstall win 10.

    Later add some Linux as dual boot.


    Just want to confirm before I do to avoid any problems:

    If I boot from win 10 usb and reinstall with formatting disk, would that be enough or do I need to do something else, like remove Ubuntu, before that?


    I searched the forum but didn't find the right answer, so creating my own.

    Thank you in advance


    Raj

    :)

  3. Clean Install Workaround for Vista

    You may remember this news story on techPowerUp! a couple of days ago relating to the lack of clean installs when using the Upgrade Editions of Vista, which required an old OS to be installed. However, Paul Thurrott has managed to find a workaround for this issue, which ironically lets users do a clean install Vista without any previous version of Windows, albeit a little tedious. Here are the steps:
    • Boot from the Windows Vista Upgrade DVD as normal
    • When prompted for a product code, leave this blank
    • Select the version of Vista you have purchased and let Vista install
    • When you boot to your desktop for the first time, run the Vista setup from Windows
    • This time enter your product key
    • When asked whether you want to do an Upgrade of Custom install, select custom and choose a clean install
    • Windows will now install for a second time and you should be able to activate it
    Remember, these steps are only advised for use in order to achieve a clean install of Vista, it is only legal to use the upgrade editions if you have previously purchased the appropriate version of Windows.

  4. Remove dual boot both OS. Clean install windows

    Remove an OS installation without removing files?

    Its been a while since I did this sort of thing and I need help, I bought an 120gb SSD(Crucial M500) and will install windows 8 on it to be my boot OS/Drive later,

    however I still have my very old Windows 7 installed on my 1TB drive(still currently my boot drive). I plan to keep most of the files in that Drive, but not the actual OS itself.. and I don't plan on dual booting, how can I remove the windows 7 on the 1TB Drive but still keep the non-OS files in there for backup purposes while I'm still setting up my new OS?
