About other hard disk setup options
Other hard disk setup options available from Partitions & filesystems
(under Hard disk setup)
are Use whole disk for UNIX and Customize.
The Use whole disk for UNIX option clears any existing
partitions and divisions from your hard disk and creates a
default UNIX partition and division, which you cannot modify.
The Customize option clears any existing partitions
and divisions and creates the same default layout, then allows
you to modify it with new partitions and divisions.
(The Interactive fdisk/divvy option gives you more
precise control over the size and location of partitions
and divisions, but the Customize option is simpler.)
Neither of these options preserve previous data or disk setups.
If you select the Use whole disk for UNIX
or Customize option, you must
restore any previous data from backups after the installation
The Use whole disk for UNIX and Customize options
are also available for the second hard disk.
