    OK, got the PrtScrn - attached. Don't understand what I would be doing with regard to your next instruction (just below).

    After you use Print Screen, open Paint. Up in the left is a drop down menu, click paste, now you`ll see your picture appear.

    From the drop down menu select save as, now save it as a jpg to your desktop, name it whatever you want.

    Now, choose Go Advanced in your reply, not Post Quick Reply. You`ll see a paperclip icon near the top middle of your reply, click that icon, then navigate to the picture you saved on your desktop, and upload it to your reply.

    You can also use Paint and the Snipping tool in combination

    I've seen this before in Windows 10 dual boot on MBR disk. I think everything is OK; the last installed Windows got its system partition marked active, boot and page file move to system partition used at the moment.

    I would be pleased both installations are bootable and wouldn't think it any more.

    Are you telling me to set my old OS as Inactive? If so, why?

    No , not now, not after seeing your new DM shot, leave everything as it is, it`s perfect

    The only thing I see wrong now is your Data disk is marked Active, if that`s an internal disk, it should not be marked Active.

    And for some reason, your System Reserved partition has a letter again.

    But the clean install looks perfect, perfect to me anyway, now you`ll be able to delete the system reserved partition AND your old install, and your NEW install will still boot fine.

    No, that pic of Partition Wizard was just an example, my C partition is marked active, so naturally the drop down menu will show Mark Inactive
