I have a basic dual setup with Linux Debian and Windows 7 (Grub is my bootloader). However, since this machine will be donated to a friend that does not know a lot about computers, I would like to install a more user friendly Linux distro.
I suspect that if I try to install on top of Debian, the bootloader will be overwritten and hell will break loose.
Any ideas on how to properly and safely install the new distribution? Maybe resize a partition, format it, install the new distro and then delete the Debian partition?
