Windows 10: 4 Partions created during clean install - any workaround?
4 Partions created during clean install - any workaround?
As the title say, is there any workaround to avoid creating 4 different partitions during a clean install of Windows 10?
Here is a sample of what I mean:
I think one is necessary and unavoidable (the MSR one), but the other ones should be used for optional services that you may not require, like restore etc.
I couldn't find a work around yesterday and in the end I gave up and accepted those 4 partitions...
That's completely normal and all needed.
- 450MB is the recovery partition containing a set of tools to trouble shoot windows
- 100MB contains boot code. Without it, Windows won't boot
- 16MB is Microsoft Reserved (MSR)
- C: Drive
Those are the Correct partitions that Windows 10 makes for a clean install using the GPT (UEFI) style. Yours right now is setup with GPT style, Which is the newer type. Mine is also setup the same way as yours. I have no problems with those 4 partitions being made by Windows. I would leave them alone. The older style is called MBR. You can read more about this in an old post here, for more information if you like.
Does a Windows 10, clean install, create the necessary partitions?
Thanks for all the useful information guys, guess I did the right choice in just giving up and accepting those 4 partitions!
With a GPT partition scheme - you can now create 124 more partitions if you wanted....
work around is to boot in MBR mode and then get MBR install (1-2 partitions); but GPT is better
I have a new ASUS ROG G751JT-DH72 laptop, and I have been trying to install Windows 10 and Ubuntu on it. It came with Windows 8.1, so I upgraded to 10, then did a clean install of 10. Version was Home 64 bit.
That went reasonably...
I clean installed Win 10 RTM version on my laptop a few weeks ago. I have a basic GPT setup.
Installation went fine, however the installer created a 'Recovery' drive (D:) with a size of 600 MB (262 MB free) & a 'Local Disk'...
Hey there! I was just wondering if anyone here managed to figure out a workaround to the UAC/EnableLua trick that helped me to get Windows 8.1 to understand that I wanted uninterupted admin priveledges 24/7 and I was still able to use most Windows...
Sorry if this has been addressed already (a search didn't yield exactly what I was looking for). I'm planning on doing a clean install of Win10 next weekend after upgrading from 7 x64 Pro. I'm wondering if anybody has a detailed account on what...
When I upgraded to windows 10 from windows 7,
