dell [optiplex] 755 (c2d-e8300, 8gb, amd/ati radeon rv610/radeon hd2400 pro/xt)
(non-EFI box without EFI partition)
system had two partitions sda1 & sda2 (I believe lubuntu full disk followed by install-alongside).. I selected to replace (with format) SDA1
I'd NOT normally use format for this 'upgrade via re-install' option but given I didn't check the sda1 (lubuntu yesterday I believe) it'll be cleaner for this install with format.
reboot, unpretty-grub but booting new hirsute system...
new ubuntu desktop looks good; adjusted monitor setup to match my landscape+portrait..; other checks all good so logout
reboot, login to other lubuntu hirsute & it looks exactly as it should :)
