    Got myself in a mess loading W10 onto a laptop runningW8.1 due to my not setting a required change in the user profile before up grading. W10 told me I couldnt do it in the version of W10 I have ( home).
    Followed your instructions and reset.
    Now all looks fine
    Many many thanks for your help

    Hi Shawn,

    Performing a Reset & got confused at If your PC has more than one drive (partition) on the Windows 10 disk, then select to remove all files (delete) from only the Windows drive or from all drives. After upgrade there were three partitions: the very small one I assumed was a diagnostic partition & the recovery partition that says 100% free I assumed is where Windows would pull the reinstall from. Is that correct?

    Guess I don't understand where Windows is pulling the reinstall from. If I delete all partitions including the recovery partition will the Reset still work?

    thanks,
    richie

    Hello Richie,

    Windows will automatically setup what it needs before starting the reset and wiping the drive. If it can't find a Windows image, it'll ask you to connect your installation media (ex: USB) to be used to reset with instead.

    Hi Shawn,

    OK, don't have a installation media yet but if Reset fails will create one. Going to go ahead & select all drives. Am I wrong in assuming that there is still a diagnostic partition hanging around from Vista?

    Post back with a screenshot showing the full layout of your Disk Management (diskmgmt.msc), and I'll be happy to see.

    If it's still there after the Reset I will. I subscribe to several of your tut's (across vista, seven & eight forums) & see tenforums keeping you very busy today.
    Appreciate all you do.

    Thanks again,
    richie

    Well they are all three still there:

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	Partitions.png 
Views:	71 
Size:	57.3 KB 
ID:	39791

    The System Reserved partition I always thought was a Diagnostic partition, e.g. F12 on Dell PC.
    The Recovery partition have no idea? 450MB certainly not big enough to house an OS. I don't remember seeing it before WinX upgrade.

    Feeling not so knowledgeable right now.

    thanks
