Re: [PLUG] Windows 10/UEFI/SecureBoot

I was actually hoping to get myself a Dell 2-in-1 when I get the funds together, so this question has caught my attention.

Is all of this complication necessary only when one wants to DUAL BOOT, leaving preinstalled windows in place, or is it still an issue if I want to use the whole drive for linux? The machine I was looking at comes preinstalled with Windows 10; can I just create the partition table from scratch if I don't want anything that's on the drive, like we've always been able to do?

(If I do want to keep the Windows OS around for hardware support/warranty purposes, I could buy myself an SSD and swap out the installed drive before booting the computer.)
