    Hello RobOne Welcome to the Ten Forums!

    I can agree that first 1tb OS drive you have there is a mess! Fat partition mixed with NTFS four small proceeding the main OS primary instead of simply seeing the System Reserved part at the front of the drive with an OEM recovery at the back end or the two at the front end usually seeing a 7 or 8gb part for the OS image along with the drivers and other OEM bloat compressed in case of the need for a full recovery.

    But despite all that having what looks like a flash drive at 14gb as well as an external drive plugged could be why 10 isn't starting up since the bois is searching the wrong drive looking for a boot loader! As for dumpling the Lenovo partition as well as the two other small partitions you would likely be looking at the need for a complete wipe of the 1tb drive rather then trying to move the existing OS primary all the way to the front of the drive. Instead you want to review the Clean Install guide after first seeing everything you want backed up from the C drive onto what looks like your storage drive.

    Too bad you didn't see this other guide first on how to go about upgrading to 10 without the need to see the upgrade install but simply plan out a full clean install once the drive was already taken care of! Clean Install Windows 10 Directly without having to Upgrade First - Windows 10 Forums

    With the Partition Wizard program you can see the 1gb drive wiped clean to get rid of the now useless small partitions and by following the Clean Install guide allow the 10 installer's Drive tools option to create the new single primary along with second System Reserved partition or simply create the new single primary by itself using PW and then boot live from the 10 media you will be needing in order to see the fresh install of 10 take place.

    tnks for all that.
    but...
    I Already try to install Windows 10 from fresh
    but i get an error 0x80300024
    Google it, and aprently the solution is to remove all Other disk of my pc
    but, the SSD drive that you see is part of the computer (lenovo yoga hybird Hard drive) so i cant disconect (and the bios doesnt have the option)
    I prepare the bios for UEFI START and doesnt even recognice my Windows usb, so i put on legacy and START the win 10 instalación but the ni get the error.
    Create my usb with RUFUS (FAT 32, GPT for UEFI) and keep getting the dame error.
    I try with unllocated Spanish e and creating all kind of partitions and nothing
    Again sorry for my english

    This is what I would try:

    1. You need Kyhi's Recovery Drive, make a USB or DVD. If you make a USB, for UEFI booting all you have to do is format the USB flash drive as FAT32 and extract the contents of the ISO file to the USB and it should boot in UEFI mode. If you have to use legacy mode to boot from it, that will work too, but you might have to use RUFUS to create the USB flash drive.

    2. You will need a Windows 10 ISO file from either Media Creation Tool, or Microsoft Tech Bench. OR you can use the Windows 10 installation USB that you already have made. If you make a USB flash drive of Kyhi's recovery drive and if there is still room left on the USB, you can copy the ISO file to it.

    3. Boot from Kyhi's Recovery Drive. Use MiniTool Partition Wizard to initialize the 1TB hard drive as a GPT disk. Create a FAT32 primary partition, 4.5GB in size at the very end of the hard drive. That should be the only partition on the drive. Assign it whatever drive letter MiniTool Partition Wizard wants to assign.

    4. Mount the downloaded Windows 10 ISO file and you will get a virtual DVD drive with it's own drive letter, OR insert the USB flash drive you created from the Windows 10 ISO file. Copy the entire contents of the virtual DVD drive or Windows 10 USB drive to the partition and drive letter you created on the hard drive.

    5. Remove all USB flash drives and DVDs. Restart the computer and enter bios setup. Set the computer for normal UEFI booting from the 1TB hard drive and reboot. It should go into Windows 10 Setup running from the hard drive. Now try installing Windows 10 to the remaining unallocated space on the hard drive.

    I wasn't referring to the 1tb main drive on your laptop but what appeared to be two flash drives one a 16gb and a second plugged where you would only want the 10 Installation Key plugged if not using a burn to dvd to boot from. The boot device menu on the newer laptops is still there to selectively choose what to boot from but harder to bring up without being familiar with the model itself. The alternative of course is going into the bios setup and changing the boot order in the Advanced section there from usually optical if an optical drive is present in the model series to USB HHD often seen representing the option for USB boot either from flash drive or external hard drive, hard drive in external enclosure, usb dvd drive, etc.

    For the old 7 laptop I saw upgraded to 10 I ended up needing a dvd to boot up from in order to see the initial upgrade immediately replaced by a clean install when that came out a mess! But due to that being an older HP model it lacked the UEFI issues now being seen.

    If you are able to see the Recovery Drive option made up however which will still need 10 running of course that generally sees a an 8gb flash drive where you could use 16gb instead to see the 10 setup files unpacked onto. If the "$Windows~BT" or WS folder is present at the root of the C drive the install.esd file is what you will want from the Sources sub folder in order to see converted over to an ISO disk image file format. The Media Creation tool simplifies things however with the option to see the 10 media made up on the spot if you already have a flash drive waiting as well as being able to go back and see the "Windows.iso" saved locally.

    And there isn't any unique to 10 about the 0x80300024 error you ran into. That is when the boot files are not being found even with a Vista, 7, 8, or 8.1 install not being strictly a 10 related issue only.

    That's great news! Remember to take notes on each step of the process in case you have to repeat them sometime! If everything checks out over the next few days you should be able to mark this thread solved as well. First see how it goes there. :)
