Hello, need some opinions. I bought a new laptop and plan on installing KDE Plasma. I am wondering what is the best way. Should I just erase the partitions and install linux. Is it a good idea to write zeroes to the SSD first?
If u need windows for some reason then u can dual boot with Manjaro(check latest stable update announcement post for ‘os-prober’, very important)
If u don’t use any windows only software then erase & install
It’s a good idea to not to wipe Windows, but shrink its partition to 64GB and install a dual-boot solution.
If you haven’t had to boot Windows for a year, you can always delete the Windows partition(s) then…
If you do not want any stinking Windows even after reading the above, please read this:
[HowTo] erase an external disk (USB, SD-Card, ...) EASILY (through a GUI)
(You can also use this tutorial to erase an internal disk completely)
If you’re just trying to install Manjaro and get rid of Windows, just delete the partitions and install.
Thanks guys. I’ve got it done. But I’m having other problems now so I’m going to make another post. Everytime I plug in a flash drive, it disables my bluetooth and the laptop doesn’t recognize the usb ports and it happens to the micro-sd slot as well.
