    EDIT: LOL - heh, welcome, topgundcp! I see you're on the job. I'll let my post stand however, as nothing inconsistent with what you just posted - other than Rob deciding whether he's sticking with legacy/MBR versus migrating to UEFI/GPT.

    You did good. Except in step 2, Instead of reinstall Windows 10 just to get the first 3 partitions, I gave the OP my 1st 3 partitions to save time.

    Understood and thanks, topgun.

    Glad to see Rob is willing to get his partitions straightened out by your method and hope that pans out well for him.

    I'm kind of siding with Mike on 76% full is a bit much for an SSD (even by today's longevity/service life standards) and think, considering what Rob uses this system for, a 250 GB SSD upgrade may be a very good investment - once he loosens up the cash needed for it.

    @topgundcp. Ok, good advice from everyone on the SSD120. I'll hold off for now. All my other drives are Hybrid SSD's and should C: start to fill up or I need to replace a drive I'll refer back to Mike's suggestion for the larger drive.

    Going UEFI right now. So far so good. I'll be back soon with results.

    The conversion appears to have worked perfectly. It went quickly and easily. My logon screen appeared and I'm back in. Nice!

    Here is my new 'Disk Manager' shot:

    I think I'm going to have to temporarily leave you fine fellows and do some work. I've been down for two days. I'll pop back up soon. I still want to analyze what Tweaking.com software did to fix my boot and I'll need you guys to look at some logs for that I assume. I can't thank you all enough for the support the past few days. You are really good and generous with your time. I look forward to more exchanges with you.

    Great. I am glad we could help. BTW, open disk management and right click on C ->Extend volume to include the 436MB unallocated space.

    I'm glad you mentioned that. I was wondering if I could recover that. Thank you...

    Should I re-enable Secuure Boot? I've read that it is causing problems for some users, but have read also that it does help protect the boot sector from melicious attacks.

    I want to know that too, I have tested it today on my Windows 10 installation in VMware and the result is a corrupted system which I yesterday clean reinstalled. All attempts to fix even the basic corruption problems don't work.
