install Zorin besdie Ubuntu 16.04 and remove Windows7.


I currently have Ubuntu 16.04 and a shell of W7 that doesn't work on my computer.
Today I received my new copy of Zorin.
I need to install Zorin and remove Windows.
I keep getting messages that say I need to set partitions when trying to set up Zorin.
How do I do this?
I decided to install Zorin alone and then add Ubuntu. That should get me two systems without Windows.

Zorin is a derivative of Ubuntu so the installation process should be pretty much the same as they use the same installer. You need unallocated space on which to install so either deleting the windows partition(s) if you are not going to use them or resizing (shrinking) some current partition(s) should work. You should also have GParted on both the Ubuntu and Zorin installation media to do this.
