1. Choosing NTFS (FAST) will save you about 10 minutes (from my experience)
2. If you do not delete your partition, all your old windows files will be moved to a folder called Windows.Old in your Hard Drive.
Not deleting the partition and just installing will take some extra time (from my experience).
3. The best option is to backup all your files and do a clean installation of Windows.
Hope this was helpful!!
during windows reinstallation, if the users wishes to format his hardrive he must select the partition and press d, then confirm by pressing L, upon doing so there will be 2 options given:
format drive into ntfs (fast)
format drive into ntfs
After chossing either one of them, the user will be taken to the formatting hardrive screen.
how here are some questions i have:
-how fast is the fast option? is this option worst then the other one
-IF i didn't press d to delete the partition, and insted press "enter", will windows still reformat my hd? or will it just reinstall without formatting my drive?
many thanks for the help, thank you.
