    Hey Brink again!

    Is this normal for it to repeat itself like shown in this image? Because I don't seem to see any mention of that?

    Hey Jeff,

    If you copied and pasted the "clean all" command, you may have mistakenly pasted (right click) it again into the command prompt the second time.

    Hey Shawn!

    Interesting, but actually I typed it the first time, but don't recall doing anything else. Should I go ahead and stop it and put in the Windows 10 Install flash drive?

    Sure, you could stop the "clean all" command with Ctrl+C, but I would run the "clean" command to tidy up afterwards.

    Also, many times a Command Prompt or DOS Prompt will return to the last command used when the original has completed, can give the impression to do it again. That's the time I close the CMD window.

    Ok, just did it. I typed in clean and It basically said it succeeded right away. What are your thoughts on that? Otherwise, I am going to go on to the next steps. Yeah!!!!

    Thank you again, I appreciate the quick help.

    That is what I thought, but then I saw that it repeated I was like HUH! I don't recall touching anything, but who knows.

    That's normal. The "clean" command finishes quickly.

    Good! Feel better about that. Now, for some reason after installing Windows it did not install the four partitions you were speaking of in the tutorial? Any ideas?

    What do you see instead in Disk Management?

    Does your motherboard support UEFI and enabled before the installation?

    Did you select an unallocated disk (all partitions deleted) to install Windows on?

    I guess in Disk Management I am seeing the partitions, but not in places like This PC

    Yes, the Diskpart clean deleted all partitions and it was unallocated at the time I installed it.
