    Issue when installing Windows 10 home on a new Asus Laptop


    Hello,

    I'm going to install windows 10 home on a brand new Asusu laptop which has a 1TB Hard drive. Actually first time installation was fine but i think something went wrong when partitioning the Hard drive. It was come with DOS so i executed diskpart command and format from MBR to GPT and made 3 paritions. There were 2 primary partions as i remember once i did that. So i installed one of them on my Windows 10. Installation was successful But i couldn't see all the partitions which i made. I could see only the partition which i installed Windows 10 which is a 200GB partition. So rest of the 800GB was lost from 1 TB. Appreciate your help on this

    PS: I'm new to here.

    Follow this excellent tutorial to do a clean install Clean Install Windows 10. Choose the UEFI partition option and delete all partitions on the drive when you get to step 13A.

    Thank you very much I need to get clarify another thing. It will cause any damage to my Hard drive since i deleted a partition? Because now i can't see that partition listed in the list of available partitions.

    Deleting partitions won't damage the disk. The Windows installer will create and format the partitions needed in a clean installation.

    Why did you want the extra partition? For data storage like photos, music and documents? Did you get everything set up the way you want?

    Yes to store other files. I think it is better than storing all the files in C drive.

    If you put your user files on another partition then it's easier just to back up the OS on drive C: using a good imaging program like Macrium Reflect Free. Otherwise, you would have to backup both your data and the OS if both reside on the same partition.

    Built-in disk management is pretty limited. I would recommend MiniTool Partition Wizard:

    If you can post a screenshot of disk management, it will help us to help you:
