  3. Deleting Partitions

    Hi Michy,

    If you are unable to delete any partition except OS partition (Generally C drive) then it could be the permission issue. I would suggest you to run the below commands in order to take the full permission and then try and see if it helps.

    First try to login with an Administrator account having full permission to make changes on the system.

    • Press Windows key + X and select Command prompt (Admin) from the list. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click
      OK.
    • In the Command Prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
    TAKEOWN /A /F C:

    • Then try to run the next command.
    TAKEOWN /F C:

    This will give both admin and your account full permissions to ALL files in the C: drive. Similarly if you want full permission of other drive like D then enter D in place of C in the above commands.

    Do keep us updated.

    Regards,

    deleting partitions,..

    1) Did you do a full disk image that can be restored before you started all of this?
    2) Did you do a free upgrade to Win10 first and confirm it was activated?
    3) Are you now trying to do a clean install and, if so, what media (ISO, bootable install USB or DVD) are you trying to use?

    For a clean install, you would do best by deleting all partitions in the front end of the clean install routine (selecting Custom Install) and let the Win10 install create the required partitions. There would be no need to format any partitions beforehand.

    Please answer above and provide any more details which will help us to pinpoint the problem and help you.

    BTW - welcome to TenForums!

  10. Word Man Win User
    If oem install was Win10 and was already activated and you are having problems doing the restore, you could download install media for your particular version of Win10 to run the clean install - that may have the advantage of doing away with any "extras" on recovery disk if that was supplied by manufacturer.

    See Brink's thorough tutorial on clean install here, paying particular attention to links out to other tutorials on obtaining media and other steps that may not be obvious to you: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/1...n-install.html

    Whether there's another problem causing your symptoms is hard to say depending on disk type and layout and BIOS interaction - whether its a legacy BIOS boot scheme or UEFI and whether disk is set up as MBR or GPT. Brink also covers these considerations either directly in the tutorial or in others the tutorial links out to.

    I would suggest you make a vanilla Windows 10 install DVD or USB using the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool (you'll have to use an operating computer, obviously, to make it):
    Windows 10

    Just make sure to select the exact same version of Windows 10 that was on the now blank computer before. Boot from the USB or DVD, select custom install, delete all the partitions on the hard drive, then install Windows 10 to the unallocated space. When it asks for a product key, click "skip" or "do this later". I'm betting your recovery disk(s) are bad.
