Hi, I am going to install Zorin and it says that the whole data on the disks will be destroyed and that shows one disk. In windows 10 I have two disks C and D, which of them data will be destroyed?
You get to choose which disk. While installing, select the
Something Else option (the last option). Don’t pick
Install alongside etc.
On the screen for
Something Else there is a dropdown to pick the disk (lower half of the screen).
If I choose disk C, data in in disk D will be saved?
Yes, if you choose one disk, the other will be left untouched.
Pic from internet for
Something Else option:
In this pic, there is only one disk
sda. This will show as C drive in Windows and
sda in Linux.
For you, likely C drive is the Windows OS drive and will show as
sda, D drive will show as
I can't say for sure until you start the installation process and see for yourself but those are the most likely names you will see for your drives.
Ok, thanks, I will try
Here is my photo:
In Windows my disk C has 53gb (/dev/sda2) and disk D has 446gb (/dev/sda4) but here is also another disks
Which of them should I choose?
I am installing Zoorin 15.3 lite 32 bit
I think I should choose /dev/sda2 but I'm not sure
You already identified the partitions correctly. If you want it on C then choose sda2, if on D then choose sda4. If it were me, I’d go with sda4 (no special reason, just personal preference) but the choice is entirely yours.
I recommend seeing this for partitioning: Partitioning during installation
I also recommend using EasyBCD to setup your boot: EasyBCD - NeoSmart Technologies
REMEMBER: Whatever you choose must be selected in that dropdown menu in the lower half of the screen.
ADDITIONAL EDIT: Actually, if you only have 53 GB on your windows drive (sda2) you almost certainly want to install Zorin on sda4.
HOPEFULLY THE FINAL EDIT: I guess I was right in my earlier post, regarding sda,sob being the drive names. As this article confirms,
sda are all one drive with different partitions. Regardless, I still recommend picking the sda4 partition.
