    4 Partitions after reinstall of windows 10


    Windows 10 was not working correctly on my PC so I decided to factory reset the PC but which did not work.

    The PC was giving me this message (Boot Device Not Found 3F0) later on the PC gave a different message, OS is missing, I have downloaded the OS from Microsoft website and reboot it via USB stick.

    My PC is back to normal, I Originally had 2 partition on my PC but now I have 4.

    The Local Disk (C:) 839GB Windows ( D:) 75.4 GB Local (E:)508 MB Recovery (F:) 14.9 GB

    My questions is this;

    1. How can I turn my PC back to 2 Partitions on Windows 10?

    2. How can access the windows download on the D: drive ?

    3. On Local C: drive the is no sign of any windows updates such as Microsoft Visual C++, Realtek Ethernet Controller Driver. Where are these updates because I can't see them D: Driver either.?

    I can't see the windows downloaded dates.
    The Windows D: Partition is empty.

    Any help and advise is very much appreciated.

    Maybe this will help?
    Disk Management - How to Post a Screenshot of

    and, when you boot from the Windows 10 USB flash drive to do a clean install of Windows 10, you should delete every partition on the target drive until it is nothing but unallocated space, then highlight that to install Windows 10 to. You obviously left partitions on the drive when you did your install.

    Then you have a very messed up install of Windows and you need to do a real clean install anyway.

    Open administrative command prompt and copy and paste: (all at one time)

    Code:
    bcdedit /enum all
    bcdedit | find "osdevice"
    reagentc /info
    diskpart
    lis dis
    lis vol
    sel dis 0
    det dis
    lis par
    sel par 1
    det par
    sel par 2
    det par
    sel par 3
    det par
    sel par 4
    det par
    sel par 5
    det par
    sel dis 1
    det dis
    lis par
    sel par 1
    det par
    sel par 2
    det par
    sel par 3
    det par
    sel par 4
    det par
    sel par 5

    When these have completed > right click on the top bar or title bar of the administrative command prompt box > left click on edit then select all > right click on the top bar again > left click on edit then copy > paste into the thread

    Please post a screenshot of Disk Management expanded so we can see everything.
    Don't just try to delete partitions while you are there. Bad idea.
