    Wndows 10 x64 Home version 1709

    First time I ran into a problem and made a big mistake was when I was dual booting Vista and Win7 preview.
    Vista was on drive C and Win 7 on drive D. When Win 7 was officially released I formatted the C drive and did a clean install of Windows 7. Straight after that I deleted a system reserved from the D drive. Result was that my PC wouldn't boot.
    Lesson I learned was that if a system reserved partition already exists then it won't get overwritten with a clean install and most importantly of all disconnect all the hard drives that you are not installing your OS on before a clean install.

    Speccy and CPUZ-ID were also removed on my computer.

    I reinstalled Speccy, and it works, but still says it's removing it (again and again!).

    If you go to the Notification about it, a page from Microsoft comes up saying Speccy is not compatible with the Windows Insiders release.

    I didn't get any list of 3rd party programs.

    Back when I first updated to Windows 10, I had to "Reset this PC" to get past a black stuck screen.

    It removed all installed third party programs, and put a "Removed Apps" HTML file on the Desktop. The file had a list of all the programs and a link to a few of them to re-download.

    Triple boot - Win 10 Pro, Win 10 Pro Insider (2) - (and a sprinkling of VMs)

    Which is pure horse-hockey (to quote Colonel Potter). MS and Piriform have not come to "agreement" on this product.

    Yes. When Windows was installing I had to go through the whole setup procedure. At least now it shows my name instead of the first 5 letters of my email address.

    Is there some sort of dispute?

    I don't really need either Speccy or CPUZ-ID, so I don't really care directly.

    Yes you can.

    Here is what I did...

    I did this to get rid of windows.old, BT and WS...just change lines for directory you want from elevated CMD Prompt.

    takeown /F C:\Windows.old\* /R /A
    icacls C:\Windows.old\*.* /T /grant administrators:F
    rmdir /S /Q C:\Windows.old\
