So I'm setupping Ubuntu on my vm on Virtualbox and I'm in the Installation type.

I think im going to select the following option: Erase disk and install Ubuntu and it says that it deletes all programs, documents in all my os's including my w10, but it

This computer currently has no detected operating systems. What would you like to do?

I'm just confirming that it doesnt affect my w10 hard drives, since I created my virtual hard drive etc.

I've never used a virtual machine ever before, so I'm just checking & confirming that its safe to use that option :/


On your virtual machine, there's no operating system installed, so it is perfectly correct to select erasing option.
