    CentOS 7 Installation Issue


    Hello all,
    how i tried to install centOS 7 having centOS 6.4 already in the system and windows as well.
    bootable DVD::::--> ISO is CentOS-7.0-1406-x86_64-DVD.iso....

    and my problem is after manual partitioning option i found three different options
    1. New CentOS 7 Installation.
    2.CentOS 6.4 for x86_64.
    3.Unknown.
    what exactly should i need to do in this stage so that i can have fresh CentOS 7 rather than already installed cenOS 6.4 and i do not want to lose windows partitions which are displayed in unknown options the third one...
    what are the procedures now please suggest me.

    thank you

    Delete / format the CentOS 6 partition. Install to 'free space' during install of 7.

    Don't use manual partitioning unless you have a specific need to, let it suggest automatically what to do.

    There are some distros that have a live cd, such as Ubuntu. You might want to use a GUI tool to remove the partition if you are unfamiliar with the command line.
