    delete partition and format the entire ssd
    Not the right way to do it.

    Delete all partitions. DO NOT FORMAT anything, leave the SSD unallocated, no partitions at all.
    Click Next and let the installer create the partitions it needs.

    A windows 10 install usually creates a 500MB Recovery partition to hold the WinRE recovery environment. But under some circumstances it cannot, so it puts the WinRE in C:\Recovery instead. When this has happened it is usually indicated by a hidden 0 byte marker file on the root of C: named $WINRE_BACKUP_PARTITION.MARKER.

    Windows 10 Does Not Create a Recovery Partition - as in the same case with Windows 8.1 OEM Setup

    The Recovery partition in question here is the WinRE recovery partition..
    which is now included inside the "System Reserved" partition or the OS Partition...
    As not really a "Clean" install

    To find Recovery (WinRE)
    open command prompt(admin) and type> reagentc /info



    As I am Sure you will find the WinRE Recovery in C:\Recovery if not in System Reserved Partition

    No formatting. Delete all partitions and leave it alone, just click next. The necessary partitions will be created.

    With the /info option this command just shows the information. Nothing will be modified.

    I’ve seen that file before and wondered what it was for. Something new to learn everyday, thanks.

    There is no need to use Rufus,the Windows included tool is preferable because you can't input the wrong information.Try it and see.
