    Sorry not enough details "Put the 32 bit on".

    Clean install, repair install?

    In any event your computer will work more efficiently on 64 Bit.

    The links have been provided as to how to get the software and the process is straight forward.

    Here is the link again

    Create Bootable USB Flash Drive to Install Windows 10

    Basically you download the tool, you execute the tool, you don't update this PC, you create a USB Thumb Drive (8GB).


    Here is the clean install process.

    Clean Install Windows 10

    You boot from key. Since it is possible you are having a size issue with one partition I would delete all partitions on drive, step 13 in tutorial. Please make sure you have now data on HDD.

    The install should walk you through the process.

    If you get to a decision point and you are unsure please post back and someone will guide you. Want to make this a one pass process.

    I did a clean install using the disk but in the tutorial it says 4 options and 4th being primary where you should install Windows but I only got 3 options?

    Everything else worked ok except for above plus there was no option to delete the partition?

    Sorry, the tutorial says pick Custom install. Follow the panels.

    So if I delete the unallocated space as you've circled will delete the partition?

    Basically so you start fresh you want to delete all the partitions and then allow Windows to recreate.

    It should look like this when finished.

    All I circled was the delete button. You click on partition, then delete. Then next partition etc...

    So If delete all 3 options on screen what do.i. click on to carry on installing if I've deleted everything?

    Will this get rid of the partition the shop set up?

    Yes it gets rid of all partitions.

    Sorry Razz1. If you are comfortable doing this don't do it.

    A picture is worth a thousand words, Step 13.

    Once you've deleted everything according to the directions you click next. Windows will allocate.

    As you said you bought this an they should warranty.
