Windows 10: Reset this PC Vs Partitioned HD

    Reset this PC Vs Partitioned HD


    Hello everyone,

    I just upgraded from Win7 x64 to Win10 Pro, I have dual boot with Ubuntu and wanted to make a clean instalation of the Windows 10 while leaving Ubuntu as it is.

    I moved all my files to the Ubuntu partition but I'm afraid the "Reset this PC" will do the work only on its partition or will wipe/repartition other partitions in the HD?

    Thanks in advance

    Create an ISO: Windows 10 ISO Download - Windows 10 Forums
    then create a bootable flash drive. I use Rufus for this. Create for UEFI/GPT.

    Clean install: Windows 10 - Clean Install - Windows 10 Forums
