  1. Forgot to disconnect HDD before Windows 10 Install


    I installed Windows 10 on my SSD and failed to disconnect the dam hard drive before doing so. So..now I have my boot drive on the HDD and OP on the SSD which would be no big deal but I can't delete it to access all 6 terabytes ( trying to convert to from mbr to gpt to get full access to the 6tb). If I do a complete reset, will Windows 10 give me a chance again to disconnect the HDD before installing? To clarify, does a fresh reset mean "reset and automatically install Windows" or will the process stop after the reset (like everything was before I posted)? Dam I am pissed I screwed this up but I am new to all this. Thank you

    :)

    Forgot to disconnect HDD before Windows 10 Install

    Installing Windows 10 on New PC?

    I'm going to be building a new PC on Christmas and want to install Windows 10 on it. I have Windows 10 on my current PC, which I installed upgrading from 8.1 with the files on a USB. How do I go about installing a clean copy of Windows 10 on this new PC? I think I recall something about installing it once makes Microsoft recognize your hardware, but since this will be a PC I'm not sure what steps I need to take. Do I need to go 8.1 -> 10 or is there a method of going directly to 10?
