    See if you can download the Dell Diagnostics for re-installation if you think you need it. Otherwise just delete that too and live without it.

    You are correct about the Dell recovery partition. Unless you want to go back to Windows 8, delete it.

    I'm not suggesting anything there. Just a point of information.

    You can delete everything if you are doing a clean install. Nothing but unallocated space.
    I believe the installation process will do this anyway, but not sure. I always wipe the disk before a clean install.

    The installation process will not delete everything unless you manually delete every partition and take it down to 100% unallocated.

    You could try deleting everything but D because it looks like it is not a system related partition, and if you don't get the correct install on (newly created) C, just repeat and try again with all partitions wiped.

    Good luck,

    Hello Guys!!

    Thanks to everyone for your suggestions and ideas, specially to NavyLCDR from the Installation and Upgrade forum. I did what NavyLCDR suggested, deleted the last 2 partitions, extended my D partition and booted from a USB. During the installation I choosed custom and deleted each partition except D, and then installed in the new unallocated space. After that the installation went well and Windows 10 created the partitions. My hard drive now looks better!!
