    That is the partition to delete, yes. No, do not substitute disk 2 for disk 1 in the command prompt. MiniTool starts disk numbering at 1. Command Prompt Diskpart starts disk numbering at 0.

    Ok, I just want to be certain since there appear to be incongruencies between the numbering assigned by the partition wizard and that shown in the image of the windows partition per windows.

    Delete System Reserve Partition on Disk 2 as shown on the Wizard and then apply.

    Then proceed with command prompt entries, verbatim, correct?

    Thank you again.

    Yes. That will delete your System Reserved Partition, and then rebuild it with only the Microsoft default boot files in it.

    I tried it with and without a space in "System Reserved"

    Output the same either way.

    Am I overlooking an input or procedure error?

    Thank you.

    If it accepts that, proceed with the prior provided inputs that follow the modified input, correct?
