Another question regarding upgrading from XP to Win 8.
There is a point in the upgrade process
where it asks what you want to keep -
Just personal files
What does "nothing" actually mean? What I mean by this is, does "nothing" format my C partition and leave
the rest alone, or does it nuke everything it sees? The upgrade process is very good at providing no information on what it's
actually doing behind that blue screen.
What I ideally want is a clean C partition with a new install of Win 8 and
for it to leave my other partitions and drives alone.
On the flipside, what does "Just personal files" mean? Does
it just install Windows 8 into a new C:Winsomething directory and not touch the rest?
Would be nice if Microsoft
actually published what these selection actually do rather than assuming they know what's best and we really don't need to
