Cause
EasyStartup is designed to delete all partitions and data on hard disk drive by using preexisting response file to install the operating system.

Symptoms
To use a preexisting response file to install the operating system, there is one warning message at the beginning to let the user verify and make sure whether to continue installation. If yes, all partitions and data on your hard disk drive will be deleted during the later installation process.

Workaround

  • Make sure you have backed up the data on your hard disk drive.
  • If you want to install the operating system on the existing system partition and keep all data on other partitions as well, you can access the main interface and go through the manual installation configuration steps.
