Fresh Installation

2014-04-05, 0:23 AM

I just got a y410p and am wanting to do a fresh install as I do not want to deal with all the crapware that comes factory installed (seriously why isn't there a "Just give me a fresh install" option when buying?) and have just a few questions on the partitions.

 

Currently there are 7 paritions:

WINRE_DRV

SYSTEM_DRV

LRS_ESP

Partition 4 (128MB)

Windows8_OS

LENOVO

PBR_DRV

 

Obviously I know afew I can delete from that, but are any of those essential or can I just empty out all the partitions? I'd prefer to get the maximum use out of my hard drive.

As a summary they are for the OS and OKR. For details you can read the explanation of Neokenchi from this link. Carefully decide about your plan you may not be able to go back after its implementation.
