    Yep, make and use a Partition Wizard Boot CD to alter your partitions, it works perfectly every time.

    Again, why? Making the bootable cd and booting from it is a PITA. Just install the program. Works great from right inside windows and takes up a whopping 94mb of space. Not like it's going to bring Windows 10 to its knees being installed.

    Long story short.

    1 Windows update did not want to run
    2 Ran stc/scanow-fixed the one issue there. (Pulled out much hair in that process.)
    3 Ran the update and it said "We couldn't update the system reserved partition" So did some digging and found that it needed 20+gigs.
    4 I boot off of my C drive (SSD) and was not going to dump that much onto my SSD. Ya oldy gamer.
    5 Partitioned off 40 gigs off my backup HDD

    Just please do not tell me I have to partition off my SSD, or will pull out what little hair I have left.

    Had another quick look at that problem laptop and it has more system problems caused by the Samsung migration tool. Looks like I will need to re-install her old hard drive and then try the upgrade from there.


    Thanks for your help.
