Reinstall Mint Cinnamon

I need to reinstall LMC OS again after encryption lockout. I still have the original USB drive I used to install the OS, can I use it for reinstalling ?, do I need to wipe the partitions first or not. Or any other issue I may encounter.
Thank you Andow

Re: Dual boot, no grub

It's unlikely Windows update removed Mint. As in, I've never heard of such a thing. Kick out the bootloader, yet, but not remove the OS and files. At a minimum, you should be able to access those by booting a live session (the same thing you used to install originally). Hello pbear. You've got me o...
