i doubt here about /dev/sda1... Which is your /boot then ?

in case you are sure that /dev/sda1 has nothing to do with linux then you can use simply fdisk to delete and create a new FS or just formatting the /dev/sda1 by using "ext3/4" will work.

Ok, I'm new in Linux, with the gparted I see that /dev/sda1 has boot mark.

That is mu doubt, I have cloned the disk so if I break something only will lost the time to clone again the disk....

So I can format /dev/sda1?

thanks

You can use gparted.

In case it's not installed, open a terminal (CTRL+T) and type:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gparted

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
