    I just used Computer Management on the lap top to delete the primary partition (F: in the previous image), but it won't let me delete the other two partitions. I'm left with this...

    Is this going to cause me any problems? Ideally, I'd like to start with a completely clean disk, not one with two partitions. Any way to wipe it completely clean?

    We here are probably more finicky about our systems. We Command everything into submission.

    I'm thinking about beating into submission, especially as I've just reached the stage where you get that dumb stupid "Hi there, I'm Cortana, and I'm here to help..."

    Makes you want to shove your fist through the screen!

    Quick, fetch me a fresh bucket of goat entrails, I've got a working (so far) installation of Windows that can see both of my drives!

    Isn't it pathetic how that makes me so happy? This should have happened straight away. I don't even have a high level of confidence that this is all going to end happily. It seemed fine on Sunday afternoon at this stage.

    Thanks again for all the help. I'm going to try and get back to where I should have been two days ago. I'll let you know how I get on.

    You're welcome. If I may say, I think you need to brush up just a little on what UEFI BIOS is if you get the time.

    Good luck and please do check in. :)

    Thank goodness Cortana isn't my wife! My wife is lovely, and doesn't patronise me with stupid comments!

    You're probably right there. Any suggestions as to where would be a good place to start? I did a search, and it returned rather a lot of results. Do you know of a clear explanation?
