RE: Alienware X51 R2 formatting hard drive

1. Shall I remove all partitions, even recovery ones?


2. As I understand posts from similar topics, those partitions are somehow useless, if Recovery CD/DVD is lost. Am I right?

1. Yes. As I said, I like to clean install Windows to a blank drive.

2. That is my understanding as well. They are only used to create Dell Recovery Media.
