    Ahhhh , you can't have Both you want the whole Cake methinks

    either you want a Clean install of Win10 OR you don't want to reinstall your Programs , and so use the Image .......

    You can Clean install win10 to get the correct GPT Partitions on the Drive and then with the Rescue Disk restore just C: E: and F: so you will have the Correct Win10 Partitions AND your Old Programs ,

    but that wont give you a Clean install of AU , you will have the old Win8 upgraded to win10 Windows .

    Yes, I want it all!
    But if that's not possible, at least I know now how to convert a disk, and what would be involved in a proper clean install. Thanks again for all your help.

    you can reinstall Win10 from a USB or DVD and get the proper GPT Partitions , but you must delete all partitions during win10 Setup till it says everything is Unallocated , then hit Next and it will make the correct partitions for you. And Then Clean install Win 10 for you.

    You then need to reinstall any Programs you use regularly, and set up your email etc ...the computer will generally perform better after doing such , especially if it has been a few years ....

    You can however , also use the Macrium Rescue disk to delete the new windows installation on C:\ Drive and replace it with your Image of C:\ E:\ and F:\ Drives .

    If E and F are just data back ups you can also mount the Image in Macrium and just Copy any file you want back to a new Folder on the New Larger C:\ Drive too. (Not Programs , just things like Documents+pics etc .... Programs need to be installed properly so they register in Windows etc)
