Automatic Partitioning

The next screen (Figure 171) shows the option of removing all Linux partitions. There are no Linux partitions on this hard drive yet. It won’t find any to remove, but that’s OK. Be sure not to remove all partitions. You want to keep the non-Linux partition on which Windows XP is installed. That is your NTFS formatted partition.


Figure 171: Removing Linux partitions

Choose to remove all Linux partitions. Don’t remove non-Linux partitions, because we wish to keep Windows XP installed also.

 


A popup box will ask you to confirm your decision. Click “Yes” to remove any Linux partitions (Figure 172).


Figure 172: Confirming partition removal

Confirm that you wish to remove all Linux partitions.

 


If a warning message appears saying the boot partition /boot may not meet booting constraints, hit “OK.”
