    Clean install Win 10


    Initial state of machine - Machine Lenovo AIO, win10 home 64bit UEFI
    Created DVD and USB via media creation tool 64bit win 10 home and booted into both media they load as far as getting all files then reboots. System created 4 partions
    Disc map on 2TB disc.
    Partion size Type
    1 0 450MB Recovery Unallocated can’t delete not enough space
    2 0 partion 2 100MB System – deleted ok
    3 0 Partion 3 16MB MRS reserved – deleted ok
    4 0 partion 4 1865.5GB Primary Unallocated can be deleted
    4 0 partion 4 Deleted
    1 0 Inherits 1865.5GB BUT Type is blank did NOT inherit type Primary
    I can try again but delete partion first

    Media creation tool, is the selection the solid billets or the ring
    I have tried both options either way they lead to install, no option to create .iso image to use on another machine and select media to write to USB/DVD!.

    Would it be an option to remove HDD into a caddy and format disk and replace and try to build image
    Any help is much appreciated..
    Shawn if this post in wrong please advise

    when you Clean Install Windows > you have to delete Every Partition on Disk, and allow Windows to Install to the unallocated Free Space on that disk.. The Windows Setup Media will create all the required partitions..

    You don`t have to delete every partition, if you had a data partition you certainly wouldn`t want to delete that :) but if you have no data then yes, delete the entire drive to unallocated space.

    I recommend using a Partition Wizard Boot CD to setup your drive.
