I’ve always used Linux with Windows 10/11 dual boot. Now I’ve just got a new laptop (12th gen i5, 16gb memory, 500gb SSD) and was looking to install Endeavour OS in a way that completely overwrites the Windows partition.
I was looking into some installation tutorials and see an Automatic partition option. Two questions in this regard:
- If I select Automatic option, will the Windows installation be overwritten?
- Also will Endeavour OS use the entire hard disk as install partition or will a dedicated partition be installed? I’m looking to install Endeavour OS in a dedicated ~30-40gb partition rather than using the full SSD
What is the best way to go about the installation procedure in this regard? Appreciate advice on this.
