    Computer won't boot after deleting data partition

    • 2011 Clean Install of Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit
    • 2013 Clean Install of Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
    • 2020 Free upgrade to Windows 10 Professional 64-bit
    As you can see these partitions were created by Windows a long time ago. What changes do you suggest I make?

    BTW, one of the changes suggested earlier was to update my BIOS. I was perplexed by this. Here are notes I found:

    • Thursday April 25, 2013: Replace F8 BIOS with F9 BIOS
    • Thursday February 27, 2014: Replace F6 BIOS with F9 BIOS
    It is apparent that unknown to me the BIOS has been rolled back at least three times by Gigabyte Dual-BIOS.

    F9 key not working

    Thank you for your reply, Gina. Unfortunately, this does not solve my problem. I found tried this fix yesterday, after reading about it somewhere. When I go to "Mouse & touchpad" the only adjustment I find is to change the length of delay. No matter if I
    set it for "long delay" or "no delay" there is no change in the actions of the pad and cursor--it still jumps around with annoying frequency.

    I would love to find an option to disable the track pad entirely. If I can't do it with the F9 key, then I would like to do it some other way.

    Thanks for any follow-up information.
