    So I went to do a clean install (after a writing zeros to my old hard drive which I am using to test before swapping out my 850 250GB for a 860 1TB). Before I try to install windows 10 I change from CSM to UEFI in the bios and disable SATA channels to my other hard drives which I don't want to be littered with sneaky files required to boot (it's happened before).

    I changed my old hard drive WD-EACS from MBR to GPT using disk management in administrative tools. However now with a clean drive and setting a max size for the operating system partition I am told that windows does not like the way it partitioned my hard drive.

    My iso is named MediaCreationTool1909, since NTlite had this number in the bottom right of its interface (I added some specific drivers and edited components/options).

    In the disk management screen on disk 1 you can see unallocated space. I deleted the partitions before taking a screenshot (my bad). I tried to install from a clean hard drive, and create 2 partitions with the windows installer (OS and games).

    Do the clean install to a completely blank (unallocated) drive. After the install, shrink the OS partition for your games partition.
