Disk partitioning. Since I want to use the whole disk for Pinguy OS installation, I use the first option. For more options, you can choose Something Else option. If you have Windows installed on your disk and you still want to use it, you have to select “Something Else” and create a custom partition from there. Please be careful when you have data on your disk.
