Default Vostro A90 - Install Windows 7 After Installing 10.6 - 11-01-2009, 02:05 AM

I've had a Vostro A90 successfully running OS X 10.6 for several months. I would like to put on Windows 7 exclusively and let go of 10.6. Is there anything I need to do prior to installing via USB an Windows 7 ISO?

Many thanks

Just select Custom install then delete all the partitions which OSX used (I think there will be 2, one for EFI). Win7 will format the single partition.
