  1. How to format computer when the partition is done wrong?


    My computer has 2 OSes Windows 7 & Windows 10. I want to completely format my computer and then again install Windows 10 from Bootable Pendrive. Windows 7 is corrupted and like it's not there but on startup it shows both Windows and on clicking on Windows 7 it open Windows 10 only but then also I want to remove it because it always asks me which Window to open. Please explain the steps to me and how to use Bootable Pendrive when everything has wiped out, do I have to just insert the drive let it load or enter the BIOS, by the way it's Acer Veriton with Gigabyte's motherboard.


    So, please guide me how to remove both the OSes and again install Windows 10 through Bootable drive.



    I'm in a hurry right now please help!!!

    :)

    How To Format A Write Protected Flash Memory ?

    ¿You already tried this one?...

    Run CMD


    1. diskpart
    2. list disk

    Then in the 3º step, put the correct number of disk in the list for the usb flash (if it's listed in disk 3, then you'll have to write select disk 3).

    2. select disk #
    3. clean
    4. create partition primary
    5. select partition 1
    6. active
    7. format fs=fat32
    8. assign
    9. exit

    with that commands you will format the flash drive in fat32, if you have a large drive you can select also "format fs=ntfs" in step 7.

    good luck!

    W7 Hard drive partition issue

    to get rid of that 100 meg windows partition that setup creates for you on a new install on a blank hdd:

    - press shift+f10 when on the partition management screen in setup <-- this opens a command prompt
    - diskpart <-- start the windows command line partition management tool
    - list disk <--- list the installed hdds in this computer for the next step
    - select disk 0 <- might have to replace 0 with the number of the correct disk
    - clean <-- this will erase all data on the disk you selected one step up- dont use the wrong disk!
    - create partition primary <- creates a primary partition taking up all space on the drive, adjust the command if necessary
    - exit, exit to exit diskpart and the command prompt
    - click refresh in partition manager and select your newly created partition and install to that

    Format an external Drive.

    Hello Roger,

    Thank you for posting your concern in Microsoft Community and welcome to the Windows 10 Family.

    I would suggest you to follow the below steps to format the drive you are referring to.

    • Right Click on Start menu and select Open Computer Management.

    • In the left pane, under Storage, click Disk Management.

    • Right-click the volume that you want to format, and then click Format.

    • To format the volume with the default settings, in the Format dialog box, click
      OK, and then click OK again.
    Note: You cannot format a disk or partition that is currently in use, including the partition that contains Windows.

    Hope it helps.

    Thank you.
