    Windows 10 64 bit

    Update: Everything is clear now!
    1. Deleted every partition that would allow me .
    two partitions remained, the main C 289GB drive and one 9GB drive that Is unallocated. I can't do a thing with it, format it or rename or merge.

    2. I then hooked up an hdmi cable to my tv, this seemed cause a "flicker" on the screen. Then I rebooted the system
    3. Installed the OS again
    4. When it rebooted I removed the FLASh drive. On other computers, this isn't necessary but for mine it gets stuck if its still in there

    I have owned and built several computers and recently just installed WIN 10 on a friend's laptop from scratch. The gateway I have has been the most headache of all time with every problem under the sun, most of which didn't have google search results and I had to come up with my own conclusions

    Thanks to your assistance I was able to get the right path!

    Windows 10 Pro

    Glad you got it working finally - that is really weird about those partitions not being able to be changed, though.
