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
