    Convert dual boot disk into single OS


    Greetings all.

    May I ask for a bit of sanity check please.

    I have a PC running two Windows 10 OS's on two separate partitions. Windows asks me which one I want to run when booting up.

    I now want to remove one OS and recover its space.

    If I understand correctly I need to:

    - open MSCONFIG and remove the OS I do not want from the list of OS's.
    - Remove the unwanted partitions
    - Expand the main OS partition

    My only concern is that I see three "small" partitions on the SSD and I just want to make sure I am not removing anything important.

    I am attaching a screenshot of the available partitions. C: is the partition I want to keep and D: is the one I want to remove. Recovery must be a standard Windows one. What about the 99MB and the 474MB ones?

    I'd appreciate your help on this! Thanks!

    Converting a dual boot system disc to single boot

    Hi Panagiotis,

    Disk Management is a built-in tool in Windows 10 which helps you manage hard disk partitions without rebooting the system and any interruption. Some of the features of Windows 10 Disk Management are as follows:

    • Create, delete and format partitions.
    • Change drive letter and paths.
    • Mark partition as active.
    • Explore partition to view files.
    • Extend and shrink partition.
    • Add mirror.
    • Initialize a brand new disk before you can use it.
    • Convert empty MBR to GPT disk, and vice versa.
    • Convert empty dynamic disk to basic disk.

    To answer your question, once you have erased the Linux partition, the Boot Manager should not prompt you to choose which OS to be use in booting. Otherwise, we strongly suggest doing a Windows 10 clean install.

    If you have other concerns, don't hesitate to get back to us.
