    What partitions do I need to install Windows 10 Pro Build 1709?


    The screenshot is how my hard drive is partitioned now. Evidently, It is not partitioned correctly to accept the 1709 download. What changes do I need as to size, name, etc. of the partitions to get it to install 1709?

    I wish to keep all my applications, etc. So if I understand it correctly, I want to do an update.

    Does the computer have UEFI and are you willing to switch from MBR to GPT for the added security and faster speed?

    I don't know what UEFI is. And all I want to do is get the Windows 10 1709 update installed on my computer...not interested in tweaks, bells, and whistles.

    If you computer has UEFI in the BIOS and you are able to move to GPT that I may be able to help you upgrade to 1709.

    Yes, it sure has been. Perhaps if the people who posted their advice would consider the likely computer literacy level of the original poster and not use computer jargon, shorthand as if trying to impress with their superior knowledge, I may not be able to understand. In short, I am a 74 year-old with Asperger's Syndrome (high functioning). I need to have things explained to me as if I were eight-years-old. I need precise, clear instructions ​​in order for them to be of any use to me.

    If what I see online for the User Guides for your PC is correct (I'm looking at C03916058, the big technician's manual for the unit) the machine may support UEFI. If you can boot into the system diagnostics on your machine, you may (or may not) see an entry labeled HP PC Hardware Diagnostics -- UEFI. Here's a diagram from that manual that explains EXACTLY how to do this:
