Folks, always, ALWAYS, physically disconnect your Linux hard drive before running a Windows version upgrade. Don't be that guy. And by that guy I mean me.

I'm pretty sure it's happily reformatting my Linux hard drive simply because it's there. I didn't ask for it, I didn't confirm it, but oh boy, I'm gonna get it.

At least I get to shake my fist at Microsoft again...

@jtr what makes it seem like it's formatting your Linux drive? I've seen that updating screen on my dual boot setup, I didn't have any issues. Just curious as to what to watch out for.

@shom bad experience from the past. After an update like this, suddenly there was no Linux. Poof, gone.

Hope you're right... I have backups handy

@shom well seems like I was wrong. Good. I can boot back to mint as usual. But it will always scare me.
