    I kind of tried it. As you know, in PW you can do different steps before applying them. So I "deleted" those partitions, created a new one and tried to convert to GPT, but that wasn't possible.

    I'll try what you say, but in my unexperienced hands it is risky. Crossing fingers.

    There is no risk. Please be aware that the disk will become unbootable after the conversion. You have to perform a clean reinstall.
    But if you can do it, the D drive will be saved.

    If you hesitate, give me a time. I will do the exact operation tomorrow with a spare HDD, will see how it goes, and will share the experience with you.

    So we have crossed one hurdle!! Great job!

    Hopefully the rest will work, too.

    Just not that how many partitions windows creates during installation. If it creates the recovery and MSR partitions, it is done!

    W10 installed and on reboot I entered in UEFI settings and yes, I could reset everything to default, save and exit, so everything seems to be working.

    When the installation is fully finished I still have to check if the problems are gone for sleep, switching off, etc, which was the main purpose of all of this.

    Yours is the good job, the patience and the kindness of your help (all of you). Many thanks indeed.

    If sleep or turn-off problems persist, play with fast startup. See how the computer reacts with fast startup on and off.

    Uhmm... I am in the browser of the laptop already, installing my programs and adjusting the settings... and there is no sleep mode at all. I had never seen this. There is hibernation and switching off, but not sleep mode. When I finish installing some drivers and stuff I will try to reboot and allow some time to see if the sleep mode comes from somewhere. Otherwise I will try in the UEFI settings.

    Now yes. After some updates and reboots everything seems to be working fine, the sleep mode is there and working fast and fine, the switching off seems to work perfect too, etc. Everything seems to be solved, so

    THANK YOU!!!!
