Windows 10: Need to reload OS

  1.    17 Feb 2017 #1

    Need to reload OS

    I have an HP 14-ac151nr that will not boot. I have tried restoring to earlier date but there are not any. I tried recovery options that will not work. I tried doing a clean install and that will not work. The hard drive is a 32 GB eMMC. All I want is to load Windows 10. Don't need to keep any files or apps. I see 4 partitons. Can I wipe the sucker and just load 10? This HDD is new to me.

    Here are the spec HP Notebook - 14-ac151nr (ENERGY STAR) Product Specifications | HP(R) Customer Support

    What problem do you have when you clean install Windows 10?

    You should be able to wipe the drive and reinstall Windows if there are no RAM & HDD issues + BIOS properly configured (optimized default settings mostly works)

    When I get to where do you want to install Windows I have 4 partitions.

    260MB System
    128MB MRS (Reserved)
    28 GB Primary
    731MB Recovery

    I want to load it on 28GB Primary. In order to post results I clicked on 28 GB Primary and it is now loading. Earlier it said it could not. It is now loading. Maybe the idiot behind the key board. I will post results shortly.
