Greetings - Newbie here attemting first Windows installation.  I have a self built computer that was put out for trash (by someone else).  After replacing the video card and installing a new 250GB hard drive I installed Ubuntu 12.0 a couple of weeks ago to make sure everything was OK.  I now have a Win 7 Home Premium wanting to do a clean install (delete Ubuntu),  Under Advanced Drive Options ;

 

    Name                                                    Total Size                                          Free Space                            Type

 

Disc 0 Unallocated Space                             0.0 MB                                                 0.0 MB

 

Disc 0 Partition  1                                        243.0 MB                                               0.0 MB                    System

 

Disc 0 Unallocated Space                             0.0  MB                                                 0.0  MB

 

Disc 0  Partition 2                                          232.6 GB                                              0.0 MB                  Logical

 

 

Thought I would know what to do here, but I am confused.  Do I delete partition 1 and install Windows on partition 2 ?  Thx..
