    OK, problem solved. I used Parted Magic to erase and reformat the hdd, then create 2 partitions, a 20Gb and a 280Gb.

    I installed Carolina Puppy in the small one and Win 10 in the big one.

    I still prefer XP because I program in TrueBasic and XP supports a DOS partition at full screen mode.

    I would simply use DISKPART to do so.
