Default TWRP reset options

I want to do a FULL RESET. GoldenEye, the ROM I am using, just recommends that I do a factory reset and that I should be set...

I was wondering what would happen if I also checked the boxes for system, data...or any of the other boxes..I know that DATA is a no no but lets just say I did. What would happen? I'm curious.

But besides that if I were to check system, would i be safe? I just want to flash my goldenEye again on the cleanest possible device...

maybe you could give me a little description of what would happen?

If you do the system that requires confirmation, you will not be able to boot an ROM. It messes up the partition.

Only do a factory reset. That wipes all user data, dalvik, and cache. When you install the ROM, it wipes the system itself.

What the OP says is what you need to do or you will likely end up with a dead phone. Instructions are their for a reason.
