    Brink, the screenshot is attached. (I could not get my Screenshot Captor program to capture the rest of the drives in the bottom pane, i.e. drive H, my DVD drive, my USB drive, or my NAS drive).

    I cannot disconnect all the non OS drives-if I open my tower case I have no idea what to disconnect.

    You would disconnect the smaller red date cable connector (left) like below from only the internal non OS hard drives. No need for the CD/DVD or NAS. Be sure to power off the computer before disconnecting them.

    After you do so, boot to Windows to make sure that you only have the OS hard drive left, and didn't disconnect the OS drive by mistake.

    Brink, thanks. Just to be absolutely sure, do you mean the red cable on the left in your picture or the middle one. Also, regarding my post #49, should I format the partitions to the left and right of the C drive, or just the C drive partition?

    Correct, only the flat red cable on the left with the smaller connector. This is the data cable.

    You would want to delete all partitions on Disk 0. This would include "C" and all partitions to the left and right of it.

    Brink, when I tried to install Build 17063 from my USB pen drive, having deleted all partitions on disk 0 and having booted from the pen drive, I chose to install to the unallocated space but was told that the Build could not be installed there because the disk was an MBR disk and needed to be a GPT disk. I converted the disk to GPT, and tried again, but then Windows told me the disk needed to be an MBR disk!!

    What can I do now?

    Odd.

    Run the "Clean" command from the tutorial below on disk 0 from a command prompt at boot, then see if you're able to clean install Windows 10 on the unallocated disk 0.

    Brink, thanks but regarding item 6 of the tutorial ( You can now initialize the disk, convert the disk to MBR or GPT, and create a New Simple Volume on the disk) how do I do that?

    You would type this below in the same command prompt at step 6. Afterwards, you should see the unallocated disk 0 to clean install on.

    create partition primary

    Brink, thanks but when I entered the command clean all I was told "clean is not allowed on the disk containing the current boot, system, etc.", so what can I do now?

    Brink, I now have another problem.
    Three times recently my PC has shut down while I have been away from the screen. It happened a few minutes ago and when I pressed the restart button nothing happened. I pressed the start button and nothing happened. I did it again and nothing happened. The third time I held the power button in for several seconds and finally my PC started and everything seemed normal.

    Any ideas what's causing this?
