HDD format

When a HDD is partitioned after the OS is installed,can the partitions be combined into one before/during a re-install.Or must you use the software that created the partitions to delete/combine the partitions first

Yes you can delete partitions before going on to reinstall your OS,a short while into the instalation you are given the oportunity to choose what partition you want to use or delete a partition and making one partition if you want to.

Thanks for the clarification gengiscant.
Its just I read somewhere that certain partition apps ,will not allow partitions to be changed during an install, that were created with the app?.

Just wish I could recall the name of the software.

Thank again
