    Windows 8.1, Win10Pro

    The two lists have the partitions in different sequences -- so it's really hard to provide any advice.

    Try to post a screenshot from Disk Management -- that will show some of the properties of the drives, which will help in providing advice.

    If the shot is from Windows 10, then 10 is on the C partition.
    Please post the shot of Disk Management from Windows 10 as asked.
