Disk Partitioning Setup


Installation Help
One of the largest obstacles for a new user during a Linux installation is partitioning. This process is made easier by automatic partitioning.
NOTE: It is a good idea to select 'Review' so that you can see what has been done.

Use All Space
Removes all partitions on the selected device(s). This includes partitions created by other operating systems.
NOTE: This option will remove data from the selected device(s). make sure you have backups.

Replace Existing Linux System(s)
Removes only Linux partitions (created from a previous Linux installation.) This does not remove other partitions you may have on your storage device(s) (such as VFAT or FAT32)
NOTE: This option will remove data from the selected device(s). make sure you have backups.

Shrink Current System
Shrinks existing partitions to create free space for the default layout.

Use Free Space
Retains your current data and partitions and uses only the unpartitioned space on the selected device(s), assuming you have enough free space available.

Create Custom Layout
Manually create your own custom layout on the selected device(s) using our partitioning tool

Encrypt system
Encrypt the system so that a password is needed to read the filesystem

Review and modify partitioning layout
Do the automatic partitioning, but this gives you a chance to review and change anything you wish
