    You need to delete all partitions related to the Windows OS. This means you leave any data partitions. Hopefully you can distinguish the two by their name.

    You may feel more confident with this using a partition manager boot disk, but that's more steps.
    (I've just been thru this myself resolving an issue).

    Note: if you follow our recommendations, you will have made a current disk image (e.g. Macrium Reflect (free) ) before doing this: that way, you always have a way back if you make a mistake.

    Okay. So I delete all partitions and leave only the Recovery partitions? And leave the Drive 1 Unallocated Space (which I cannot delete).

    No. You delete all Windows partitions.
    For UEFI installation that's

    EFI, a 16Mb partition, your Windows partition, and any Recovery partitions without a label (usually < say 800Mb, typically 450Mb).

    Keep all the partitions whose labels you recognise as partitions you created which contain your data.

    Please, as you are uncertain, create a disk image before you do something you may regret, using Macrium Reflect (free) + external disk for image storage.

    Okay, deleted it all apart from my USB one. Currently installing windows. I'll keep you posted.

    Thank you for everything so far, Dalchina.
