Hi folks. I've decided to reinstall LL because of a mistake I made in my first install.I decided to calculate the amount of disk space that Lite could use because I wanted to keep a dual boot with Windows and I wasn't sure how much space Lite needed to install. .
I can't remember if Lite gave me the option to automatically choose the HDD space it needs to install or not but... Anyway, the darned computer won't boot to Lite unless I have the DVD in the drive and make sure the computer boots to it. The most annoying thing is that Lite is running from the DVD instead of the HDD! Talk about a snooze fest :(  So now I want to reinstall Lite and give it all the space it needs, since I know I have plenty of HDD space for it, but I can't find an option to reinstall. How do I go about this??
Thanks for your help, Wally

Hold esc while booting from HDD, but do this before you see boot icon. Select "Advanced options for Linux Lite GNU/Linux". Go to recovery mode and use "clean" this should take some time. You can also try other options. Use "system summary" to see free disk space. If you can't fix it you may need to reinstall lite.

There are no options to boot to Lite anywhere. I have to put the cd in and change the boot order to boot Lite.
I don't think I did a full install of Lite but even when I boot to Lite using the cd I can't find an option to reinstall Lite.
Is there a visible folder on HDD that I can delete from Windows so I can start over?

Don't you see install with cd icon on DVD booted system desktop? It's possible to remove the (broken) lite partition from HDD with gparted but be very carefully and keep windows partitions untoutched. Breaking more systems (windows) is easy by removing wrong partitions! You also must enable legacy boot if disabled by default.
