    oh ok. Will there be a iso file to download?

    Yes, You should always make your Boot drive (C drive) to be first (disk 0).
    Better idea is wait untill Win10 Build 14393 ISO becomes available then download and do a fresh install with new build.

    I don't know how early you'd get the ISO but if you go ahead with the update, you can capture the install.esd file then convert into an ISO to use for fresh install.

    If you are an Insider, you'll probably get the update sooner. Actually, the PC I am using to post is running build 14393.5

    ok how do I capture the install.esd? Will there be a folder made during install like when you did the upgrade there was a old windows folder and other install folders?

    The recovery options are not working because there is more than likely no path assigned to the winre.wim file. The reagentc /info command should show that path so run it to see. Right now it may show harddisk1 and partition 2.

    What disk number it is depends on which SATA port it is connected to.

    Why have you set up the two other drives as Logical partitions with just one partition?

    You may be able to download that .iso tomorrow after they release the upgrade, but I will be capturing the file also just in case. The new build is supposed to have the ability to go online and download the latest build by itself but those running the Insider versions should have noticed that option.

    I did get the iso and did do the update and you were right, there is another partition on the c drive. I will have to take care of that this weekend. In the event viewer I have tons of errors mostly drivers, I can't have that. I thought by formatting that drive it would have remove those partitions, that's why I did it a second time. I did noticed some of my tweaking all went back to original too, so since I'm going to re do everything I'll just wait till then to customize.
