So I finally went for a clean installation of Windows 8 a few days ago after years of Windows 7 and I completely forgot an important step. The step I got confused by was "Where do you want to Install Windows", I easily located my C drive but forgot what to pick exactly from the menu below. "New", "Format" and "Delete". I just selected the hard drive I wanted to install Windows on and clicked "Format" and then proceeded with the installation. After successfully installing Windows I have read from various sources that I should have picked Delete. Will I expect any problems with the OS for picking Format all alone?, did anyone install similarly?
Thank you for your time and help.

I meant your C: drive (Disk 2) would have multiple partitions showing (something like Disk 0 is showing) if you messed it up. It isn't, so are fine. I guess Windows didn't bother split up the boot partition from the operating system either in your case so it is all on one partition on C:.Go to the full post
