    The best way is to delete all partitions during install and let windows format and create new ones

    well, im not a pro in formating, but it takes more time to format a USB, than the time when i click format a partition (this dont convinc me that is being fully formated ), if you have a link or something for what u sad, please could you share it ?
    edit : i delete partition by clicking on a partition and click delete and then at end click new ? is that it ? or its supposed to do via clean all way on diskpart ? !

    No new needed. Once all partitions are deleted, press Next. The installer will create and format the partitions it needs.
