I’m planning a fresh fedora installation on my dual boot system. Currently I have got Windows 10 on one drive and OpenSuse on the other with each it’s own Efi System Partition. I want to replace Opensuse with Fedora. The question on the table is: “Should I format the Opensuse ESP or mount the old EFI partition?”
Opensuse’s Documention say’s:
If an EFI system partition is already present on your system (for example from a previous Windows installation) use it by mounting it to
/boot/efiwithout formatting it.
Archlinux documention say’s:
Warning: When dual-booting, avoid reformatting the ESP, as it may contain files required to boot other operating systems.
But I guess that would only be the case on a dual boot system on a single diskdrive. And since I want to discard Opensuse that wouldn’t be a problem, don’t you think so?
I ask this question since I have read this post from somebody that experienced trouble after mounting the EFI partion from an older linux distro rather than formatting the EFI and create a new partition.
So Is there someone who has expertise on this matter that can offer a suggestion? Should I reuse the EFI partion or create a new one?
