    You shouldn't have to choose anything. The high lighted one will be the last one installed, though you may have to wait 30 seconds for it to activate. You can delete the incorrect logical partition using disk management in administrative tools, or use 3rd party software.
  2. I would say if the drive is empty then format the drive by using Bootable Disk.
