    Hi AQll

    I created a bootable USB with Win10 but i am stuck on the next stage where it asks -

    'Where do you want to install windows'

    I have only ever had one drive C:.....lol

    Where do i put it, do i need to format or delete anything?

    Am i selecting the correct step before i get to the partition screen bit?
    I am selecting Custom:Install windows only (advanced).

    Choose custom installation and delete all of the partitions of the drive and then choose to install on the clean drive which will recreate the Windows 10 Partitions and then it'll install.

    It would not let delete them all, in fact i could only delete one.

    It's all up/running now cheers.

    Going through the 'Tweaks and Concerns' sticky on here now.

    It's MUCH harder to navigate than Win7, can't find a thing..lol

    If you would've taken the time to look at the STICKY in this very sub-forum you would have not made this thread!

    NBR Windows 10 Clean Installation Guide

    Look through the initial section where I explain how to clean your current drive using the Diskpart /clean command

    then hit refresh where you see the drive options and try

    good luck

    It's all installled now, just migrated all my Thunderbird emails across. Still going through the guide.
    All my Cortana stuff is off/not installed.
    I',m at the part where it states to disable Windows Defender Firewall as it's 'heavy', i notice szthe ' AV Comparative Antivirus Performance Test' link is dead??
    Avast is recommended, i've always used Comodo.
    Think i will put another post up in the correct section (same i presume) for a decent Firewall and Antivirus (i don't mind paying IF it is worth it.

    Working Link AV Comparive Performance tests - https://www.av-test.org/en/

    Thanks for your help mate....

    Lemme sum it up for you from personal experience. The lightest, most secure, no bloatware, no BS Antivirus right now is VIPRE Antivirus. PERIOD.
