  1. Reset Windows 10 w/ Linux (dual boot)


    I currently want to clean wipe all the data in my Windows partition without touching anything from my Ubuntu partition.

    I want to make sure that grub wont be messed up after I clean the Windows partition and Ive seen several posts that state that the boot loader screen (for linux) won’t be available any more if I reset windows. How can I prevent that?
