    I've deleted drive and it now says
    drive 0 unallocated space 232.6gb
    But it's still saying Windows can't be installed on this drive. And when I click show details it says Windows cannot be installed on the disk. The selected disk has an MBR partition table . On EFI systems. Windows can only be installed to GPT Disk

    Perhaps you can re-apply Secure Boot if you disabled it temporarily. If you wish.

    Use Browsers that block Banners, Tracking and Adware.

    Opera is ok, but you need to go into it's Settings to turn on AdBlocking, remove Exceptions etc.
    Firefix is customisable. With lots of add-ons available to you in order to block Tracking etc
    Vivaldi
    Brave

    The thread is yours for you to peruse before you proceed.
    But you tend to just skip over things somewhat. Like post #100
    All to be done during the install.
    Nothing complicated about it.

    It's not mandatory, as you might actually want those functions.

    Those shown are the recommended settings for when it comes to privacy. Easier to choose as you go along during the install.

    But you can go through all of the settings afterwards to enable/disable whatever you wish.

    Yes, chrome is probably the best browser at the moment.

    A browser is a personal choice ... I do use Chrome, other are paranoid about Emperor Google becoming omniscient.
