A clean installation is an installation from the begining, doing the partition and everything else. Or like patmcgroind said, install a dual-boot. But only if you have enough space on your HDD Share barron14 December 28, 2009 9:26:25 PM Thanks m 0 l barron14 February 17, 2010 3:46:34 PM Do all my files get deleted? m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
