Does Gentoox install format F?

Post by Mrio » Sun Jun 04, 2006 12:43 pm

Hey guys,

A fast question:

When I install Gentoox Home from CD to F:, does it format a harddrive or delete files?

I just need to hear it from y'all...

Depends on the installation type. Native wipes it all down and uses it all for linux. Loopback makes a large file and linux resides in that file.

Well I am going to install Gentoox on F: (loopback). So if i do that it does not wipe/delete anything on F? Just put Gentoox files there right?

I'm totally new to this homebrew XBOX thing, i don't want to mess up the applications.

Mhhm i'm gonna give it a try.

The E and F installations do not destroy anything; the Native install formats F in a Linux file system.
