I am installing Windows 7 and I chose to do a custom install which will erase all my pre- existing data. After choosing to do this the screen comes up asking where to install windows. I see two partitions one is the reserved partition which i cannot install windows on and the other is where my current operating system is on. I know I want to delete and format the drive, which after i select delete then it shows the space as unallocated space. Should i select this unallocated space or do I need to create another partition then install windows? Is it necessary to always create another partition?
