On a new Laptop (UEFI / Secure Boot / GPT-specific partitions
"EFI_System_Partition" and "Microsoft_Reserved_Partition") I intend
replace the pre-installed Windows-10 with Fedora-LXDE which will then be
the only system on the hard disk .
When installing Fedora, have I to preserve both of the two partitions
"EFI_System_Partition" and "Microsoft_Reserved_Partition", or can I
both of them or one of them?
Thanks in advance. Have a nice day.
