These are some graphical instructions to delete/wipe all the partitions on your HDD to install ArcaOS on your machine.

Please always remember to backup your files before doing this.

Sometimes it is required to do this because a pre-installed OS on the machine can have formated/organized the hard drive with a geometry not recognized by OS/2 or ArcaOS.

From the Boot CD, on the Disk Utility you can select "Disk - Wipe disk information - All disk information".
