View Full Version : [xubuntu] how to format using xubuntu?

August 23rd, 2011, 08:22 PM
If I boot from a CD (into xubuntu), how do I reformat the new hard drive (which will later contain ubuuntu and windows xp (wubi dual boot)).

I also need to know how to format the replacement hard drive using xubuntu, and which type of format to use - I think I need to use NTFS formatting.



PS:Yes, I'm a newbee.

If using wubi you can install XP to the whole disk and not worry about formatting it at all, the installation will make the partitions needed. Later when you add the wubi ubuntu installation, that will not require partitioning as the wubi application will make a virtual drive for ubuntu as it installs; all you need to do is decide how large it should be.
