    Hello guys, my laptop got stucked in boot loop so i decided to do clean install from dvd. I wonder if i can leave D: partition and delete C: and those two of 350MB and 450MB size? Will i still get that unallocated space and be able to do install on it? Or i have to delete D: partititon to in order to have working windows? Thank you.

    Post a snapshot of a fullscreen 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.

    You can leave the D: drive partition. Delete all the other partitions and install to the unallocated space. If your D: drive partition is not at the front or end of the hard drive, though, you will have two unallocated spaces - one in front of D: drive and one behind D: drive and until you move the D: drive partition to the beginning or the end of the hard drive you will have some wasted space.
