Thanks. I've hidden the entries now
I have a laptop with windows 8. I don't get windows on dvd to reinstall, so I have made a recovery USB stick as per the manufacturer instructions.
Now I want to replace win 8 with ubuntu, but there are several hidden partions on my laptop: recovery, backup, uefi "something or other".
My queston is, if I want to install ubuntu what partitions should I keep?
As I told in a previous question, I was having GRUB problems with a dual boot PC with both Lubuntu and Bodhi Linux. One of the partitions (the one with Bodhi Linux) was messing with the GRUB entries, polluting the GRUB.
