    Once you are able to reinstall windows please indicate the steps that you made to clean the drive and install Windows 10. The steps that are usual are in post #8 and essembe displayed them in post #20. Did they fail again? If you try diskpart again let us know the fail error. Were you able to use the steps that Kyhi listed?

    And to further emphasis the point - you have to boot the computer from the Windows 10 installation DVD or USB flash drive. You can't just run setup.exe from it if you are wanting to delete the partitions on the drive.
