Installation :: Deleting Previous Partition

Aug 26, 2015

I just upgraded my laptop from windows 8 to win 10. The free upgrade of course did not delete my files from window 8 so I went ahead and installed windows 10 on to my USB and booted from it for a clean install. While installing win 10 however I managed to do it on my C drive. I believe my previous OS was on D drive as when I go into my system properties now, C drive = 373 GB free from 393 GB which has the windows icon over it to show that OS is inside it and the 'D' drive has only 43 GB free from 393 GB capacity.

I would like to free up my D drive and delete all previous files and maybe also remove partition and only have one storage which is C drive. How to do it? Do I just go into my D drive and delete all the files inside it? such program files x86 etc? while running window 8 I managed to get a lot of spyware, adware etc on my system and hence why I preferred a clean install of windows 10.

Deleting System Partition

Aug 6, 2015

I DO NOT have two OS's installed just one.

However after installing it says that both my HDD and SSD are both system, boot, hibernate.

I can not format or delete my HDD it says that it can not do so because the empty, blank HDD is a "Healthy, hibernate, boot, system drive"

How do I go about deleting this.

Recover Data After Deleting Partition And Creating New One?

Dec 18, 2015

while trying to troubleshoot a lousy 1.5TB WD drive I had accidentally deleted and recreated the partition on a different USB drive without noticing.What are my options? I don't have a spare drive to restore to. The drive was only using 350GB of 900gb, but it has been filled and erased several times without defragmenting. I have it unplugged now.

It's not entirely a disaster; aside from my (dubiously obtained) movie collection there's nothing really that I need and can't redownload or have on my SSD.

Deleting Primary Partition Which Shows Up As Boot Option

Feb 7, 2016

Anyway, a while ago, I was playing with booting installations from a HDD, which worked, but now it seems I'm stuck with the partition I used to store the installation on.

So I have two questions:

1. To delete the H partition, I need to first set the C one to active, correct?
2. Is it even safe to delete the partition since it's a "system" partition?

The H partition is empty as far as general files go, but since it's bootale, it always shows up as a boot option, which is mildly annoying.

Installation :: Cannot Go Back To Previous Version

Dec 20, 2015

When I installed windows 10, something went wrong and I could no longer could connect to the internet because some protocols were missing. Also, within five minutes of starting using my computer, the start menu stopped working. I have tried all the fixes I could find for the start menu including sfc /scannow and multiple powershell fixes. None of them worked. When I use the windows 8.1 install disk it, I get a message saying that something happened, setup has failed to determine supported install choices. Windows 10 is difficult to navigate and always seems to be missing some software.

Installation :: New Recovery Drive Is Much Smaller Than Previous One

Aug 26, 2015

After my Windows 10 upgrade was finished I created a "Recovery drive" on a 32 GB flash drive and it filled the drive to 26.8 GB. I just finished a clean install on my hard disk with all unallocated space and decided to make a new "recovery drive" on the old flash drive when I was finished. I did "check" to include system files and the process took quite a while but only 3.5 GB are now being used on the flash drive. Why such a difference in data this time than before? Is this drive okay?

Installation :: Delete Previous From Boot Start Up

I recently messed up a previous Win10 installation and had to use gparted (kept saying the drive was locked when I tried to use Recovery CD) to delete partition and start from scratch. Everything installed fine like before but now when I start up or restart laptop I get the option to boot either Windows 10(previous install) or Windows 10 on volume 2(new working install).

How do I get rid of that previous install option so i can go straight to boot up?

Installation :: Won't Start After Removing Previous Install

Jan 11, 2016

Due to a reinstall my laptop had a dual boot system with windows 10 twice installed. Now I was finished with the migration and I used EaseUs Partition Master to remove the old partition and add the space to the new partition. But now my windows doesn't boot anymore. It gets to the windows logo and the waiting icon under it, but it doesn't go to the user logon screen.

The old situation before the resize was:

Win 10 (old) 30 gb
Win 10 (new) 220 gb

Installation :: How To Partition A 6TB HDD

Nov 23, 2015

I have a new system running under Win 10 on which I want to use an SSD as the boot drive with all my s/w and a WD 6TB Black HDD for my data. However, when I format the 6TB drive it shows up as two unallocated segments, one of 2048.00 GB and the other with 3541.03 GB. The smaller one is available for a simple partition under Win 10 Disk Management, but actions for the larger one are all greyed out. When I make a simple partition in the smaller one the option to extend the partition is greyed out. What is the secret to using the full 6TB under Windows 10?

Installation :: No System Reserved Partition On SSD

Aug 18, 2015

I have an SSD with WIN7 installed. It has no System Reserved Partition (SRP) and thus no boot files on that nonexistent partition.

I've read here that individuals with a SRP of only 100mb have had issues installing WIN 10 and that those issues were resolved by expanding the SRP from 100mb to 450mb.

Will WIN 10 install if I have no SRP? Will it merely alter the boot files on my C drive?

Installation :: Partition And Drive Restore

Dec 8, 2015

Because of a problem with 10 a tech told me to revert to 10270. I backed up everything important to my D: drive first. I did a complete formatting of C:. Then upon installing 10270 onto C: I first blew away the partitions on D:, realizing what I had done just after hitting the keys.

I have run Easeus's free Partition Recovery software but it finds absolutely nothing, even in deep scan.

Is there another reliable method with which to attack the problem of restoring the partition tables for D:?
