    decided to do clean install from dvd


    Hello guys, my laptop got stucked in boot loop so i decided to do clean install from dvd. I wonder if i can leave D: partition and delete C: and those two of 350MB and 450MB size? Will i still get that unallocated space and be able to do install on it? Or i have to delete D: partititon to in order to have working windows? Thank you.

    :)

    Can a non-bootable Win 10 ISO DVD do a clean install?

    My computer has been upgraded to Windows 10 and activated.

    I have a non-bootable DVD Windows 10 ISO.

    Is it possible to do a clean install with that non-bootable disk?

    *** Heard imgburn can create a bootable DVD ISO, but after downloading then found it is infected,

    and decided not to install it.

  3. How do I create a clean reinstall disc following successful Win7-to-Win10 upgrade?

    I assumed you meant: "You cannot create a DVD from the iso and do a clean install".

    If you can't do a clean install, why would you bother to download the ISO and make a DVD?

    Well, which is it? "You cannot ... do a clean install", or "you can do a clean install"?

    That's what I did a month ago. But when I try to do a clean install, I am prompted for a Product Key.

    Post a snapshot of a fullscreen Disk Management Window:

    To open Disk Management, press Windows key+r, type diskmgmt.msc and press Enter or click GO. Make it full screen. Expand the fields as necessary so everything can be seen.

    You can leave the D: drive partition. Delete all the other partitions and install to the unallocated space. If your D: drive partition is not at the front or end of the hard drive, though, you will have two unallocated spaces - one in front of D: drive and one behind D: drive and until you move the D: drive partition to the beginning or the end of the hard drive you will have some wasted space.
