    Reserved Partition Error

    I want to bounce this off you before move ahead.
    I'm getting the Reserved Partion error when I try to install Win 10 on my Wn 7 rig.

    My SSD is an EVO 500
    partitions are
    Data 100MB
    C: 419GB
    Unallocated 46.58GB - this is my Over Provision Partition.

    I guess I need need to increase my Data Partition to about 350MB. I want to use Minni Partition Wizard.
    Should I Reduce the Front End of my C partition? And use that space to grow the Data Partition?
    From my research, I Think I got it right.

    Post a screenshot of a full screen Disk Management window.

    To open Disk Management, press Windows key+r, type diskmgmt.msc and press Enter or click GO. Make it full screen. Expand the fields as necessary so everything can be seen.

    Thanks, Yes, what you proposed is what you need to do. Might even go to 500MB though 350MB should be enough.

    Just waiting on the 2.6 GB down load to complete.
