    Returning tablet for warranty exchange- how to clean my data


    I am returning my Surface tablet for a warranty exchange. Are there any precautions I should take with my data on the PC (Windows 10 Pro)?
    .
    I have already deactivated the Windows 10 license and copied my data, but is there any risk of my passwords (I am using Google Chrome) getting stolen? I thought of installing Linux then formatting the partitions. What would you do?

    :)

    Clean install on Windows 10 Tablet - UEFI


    I have a Slide i701 which came with Windows 8.1 and I used the Media Creation Tool ISO to upgrade it to Windows 10 Home Single Language x86. Yesterday, I downloaded the 1511 Build for the same. I'd like to clean install the build using the ISO and by clean install I mean, I will be cleaning the whole disk with clean all (diskpart) to start fresh. The tablet uses GPT, and I have a USB with the ISO booted with Rufus using the GPT scheme for UEFI.
    1. Can I directly clean install by booting the USB like on a PC and then clean the disk with clean all command or do I have to do some additional steps, for eg:- I read somewhere that I have to convert the disk to GPT after using clean all.
    2. How to activate after clean install.

    Please leave your suggestions, esp. if you have done the same as above on a UEFI Tablet. Thanks
