Much consideration went into the new installer UI specifically to make it more clear when existing data is going to be removed.

I'll have to run the installer without actually going beyond the point
of writing to disk. I remember there were three items to delete but I
think they were all on the "new" HD [on which I had done rm -fr *] and I
just clicked delete for them all. I still have a mental image but can't
read the details!
Actually I think the present situation might really be preferred [by
me]. Much like bringing up the BIOS setup screen with DEL at turn on I
press "F9" and get a boot menu, select the hard drive I want and proceed
with one of the grub screens, different but not a real problem. I kind
of like the idea of completely separate systems. I also have a copy of
F20b in a VMware VM which works well enough using XFCE instead of the
Box 10 Fedora-19/64 XFCE Linux
