Hello.
Can anyone enlighten me? I have Linux (mint) on my single hdd right now installed. If i want to switch to windows10, i should reformat hdd to NTFS, right? Ok, how can i do that inside Linux? I tried to reinstall windows with usb stick, but when i get to the part where i have to choose where i want to get windows installed, it doesn't allow to pick hdd.
Can anyone help me?

Edit: I don't need to save any data from hdd.
Edit2: Solved my own question, lol... Booted linux mint through stick, used gparted and fomatted hdd.

As a general note, you should use each OS native file system when installing. It's also better to use each OS installer to format the filesystem - i.e. when installing Windows , you re-format the drive from within the installer.
