Re: I think i formatted my entire hard drive to Linux wiped win10

Re: I think i formatted my entire hard drive to Linux wiped win10

Great advice Lolo! Are you using EasyBCD to manager your boot loader on your multi OS machine? I was getting ready to install Mint on a machine that I have dual booted to Windows 10/OpenSUSE. Any advice as this will be my first attempt at a multi OS machine? Thanks

Ed's suggestion may be the best way to do it. Again, DO NOT GIVE UP!!! The short time I have been using Linux has me hooked and I already rarely load windoze.

Re: I think i formatted my entire hard drive to Linux wiped win10

I think the first logical step would be to partition my hard drive, so I can install windows on it? WHY would you want windoze back??? Sorry, but I had to say that! :mrgreen: Yes, you are correct! Go to Administration > GParted which you will most likely need to install from Software Manager. It is...
