I chose a language, and then was given three options to pick from. I'm honestly not sure which one to pick:
1) Recover Windows to first partition only.
i. This option will delete only the first partition, allowing you to keep other partitions, and create a new system partition as drive “C”.
2) Recover Windows to entire HD.
i. This option will delete all partitions from your hard disk drive and create a new system partition as drive “C”.
3) Recover Windows to entire HD with two partitions.
i. This option will delete all partitions from your hard drive and create two new partitions “C” (60%) and “D” (40%).
Which one should I choose? I only want to restore everything back to factory conditions to erase a virus, I'm not interested in backing up anything. The last time I checked the 'My Computer' folder, I only had a C: drive titled "OS", and I think an E: drive titled something I can't remember. Nothing was in the optical drive either.
edit: I might have had a hidden partition somewhere that would have let me reinstall by hitting F9 after a restart. Either way, it looks like I would have ended up at this Preload Wizard anyway. From what I've been reading online, neither choice erases the hidden partition, but I still can't decide which one to choose.
Please respond. My computer is an ASUS Notebook K52F.
