  1. Forgot to Unhook HDD before Windows 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

    :)

    Hi Johan,

    It is possible that your
    HDD was unreadable
    causing the error message to appear. We recommend that you perform these troubleshooting steps and check if there are any changes:


    • Shutdown
      your
      PC.

    • Unhooked
      the
      HDD
      and
      turn on
      your
      PC.

    • Reconnect
      your
      HDD
      and
      restart
      your
      PC.

    If the issue persists, we suggest that you contact your
    laptop/computer's manufacturer
    for further assistance.

    Update us on how it goes.

    Regards.
