Will resetting win 10 os effect my linux os

Forums: 

My main question at this time is will resetting my win 10 os effect my Linux Mint 17.2 os in any way? This is of primary concern as I am new to Linux so I am naturally unsure.To avoid any unnecessary comments on why I still run win 10 in dual mode at this time,I simply want technical information.I primarily use Linux as I have found better software to replace my main need of win 10.It should go without saying that I have become unhappy with microsoft and what they think an os and support to problems with said os should be,but at this time I still want to use a few programs I really like that are only made for windows.In time microsoft may find themselves out the window.So if anyone can help it would be appreciated.
