Post Replacing XP with linux

I am doing, or trying to, do what the article is about. I have successfully created a stick and booted an XP machine. I wanted to enable the XP machine to boot on linux and have achieved this. However with one hard drive (albeit multiple partitions I can see my way to a dual boot. However, I want linuxmint17.3 to replace XP, not supplement it. All my data is now on a new Win 10 device so how do I get rid of XPSP3. and boot from the linux other tan using the USB facility. The bios does not give me the option to choose between partitions. The acer installation may also have a partition not visible to my partitioning software
