Hello all!

I managed to reach the install screen and it lists one Disk: Disk 0 with numerous Parts: Parts 1-7. I realize that the GPT error might be because of the main environment is UEFI and I changed boot to 'Legacy' for the setup to load. Will try to revert and see how it works.

My question:
What's the best way to partition? Does the new OS have to be installed on the partition the present OS is in(so as to replace it?).

Thank you!

Here is a link to a picture showing my disk type and these odd unnamed paritions on it for miscellaneous tasks:


To name a few partitions there is one titled 'Recovery' another titled 'Windows Re-tools'
