View Full Version : [ubuntu] Installing and deleting windows

July 31st, 2008, 08:55 PM
If i choose to install ubuntu 8.04 and totally delete windows and format the hard drive do i still get the option to migrate all my windows settings first or is this only if you choose to run both systems. Any help would be appreciated as i am a bit scared of starting from scratch.http://ubuntuforums.org/images/smilies/confused.gif

when you run the installer and tell it to install ubuntu to the whole disk, no changes or formatting is made until all the questions are answered, including the option to import settings.
