Hi guys,
I have an hackintosh running El Capitan and Windows 10 on the same SSD, and I'd like to do a fresh install of macOS. Can I simply install it in the El Capitan partition and leave Windows 10 untouched or I must erase the whole drive?

Yes, you can install on the El Capitan partition.

Yes, you can leave the Windows 10 untouched.

No, you do not need to wipe the whole drive.
