I done a "clean install" on my new HP. So I think? Mine came with a ssd and hdd. I unplugged the hdd during install. On the ssd during install. I deleted the partitions including the recovery portion. Since I had made the discs already. But, after I deleted the partitions. I created a new one with the ssd and hit next. Was I suppose to select "format" after creating the new partition? I did not do that assuming deleted the earlier partitions was enough. So not sure if I am up creek and need another reinstall since I missed a possible extremely important step? Please help... I am sitting here right now not knowing what to do install wise if I need another or not. Another reason why I am asking this. Between drivers, window updates and a few programs. It has taken up 30gb. My ssd is 160gb. I have another system with a 500gb hdd similar to the new system software wise. And it is only using 21gb.
