I am planning to install Zorin 16 Core on my wife's HP Laptop. It has a Samsung V-NAND SSV (860EVO). In a trial run, I was a little uncertain about whether to proceed. There were two partitions, plus some hidden ones. The first partition was larger, and had a File icon. The second had the Zorin Z. I could see that there was writing in the background of both partitions, but it was very dim, not possible to read, although it appeared to be info on the partitions' size; I could make out numbers and "GB."
I assume the large partition with the File icon is windows, but why did it not clearly say it was? Why the File icon? If it were my computer, Windows 10 would be long gone, but she wants it (I suspect because she paid for it. I would just consider it a nuisance, to be nuked asap).
So, I'm now afraid to go ahead with the install. I know how to disable Fast Boot or Secure Boot, but did not do so for the trial run. Is that the reason things didn't look quite right? Should I go ahead and disable FB/SB?
p.s. Zorin 16, as usual, was worth the wait.
