    I've been experiencing a lot of BSODs lately:

    STOP CODE: INVALID_WORK_QUEQUE
    STOP CODE: KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE
    STOP CODE: DRIVER_CORRUPTED_EXPOOL
    STOP CODE: PREVIOUS_FATAL_ABNORMAL_RESET_ERROR
    STOP CODE: MEMORY_MANAGEMENT

    I've done everything that things people said to do to fix these BSODs but I don't think it worked. I've run chkdsk /f, sfc/scannow and Memory Diagnostic Tool. Mind you these errors don't always happen and just pops up randomly even if I'm running the laptop at low power without the AC adapter plugged in. Last time I long press the power button long enough to reset the laptop and the BSODs were gone for some time. But then they came back, so I just though it might have something to do with a corrupted OS.

    How can I do this without having to remove my D: drive and make the laptop recognize my C: as my main drive and the place it should place my OS?

    If you did come from an update instead of a clean install, then it's possible. But by the looks of that it appears like some driver and corrupt systems.

    RE no removal of D: drive.

    Take a look in your bios. can you disable the drive?

    Make the boot ISO from Phoenix and start the process. you should be able to see if it can see the D drive or not from there.

    If it can, then well you'll have to remove it.

    If it can't, it should be fine to do.

    Just make sure you back up anything on the C drive first before doing this as it will remove everything.

    After windows is back on, re-enable D drive in bios and data should still be there. Just note that if software is installed on D: that's supposed to have reg items, they may not work properly.

    Edit: Just note that if this is your original install what you're using, it may already have windows items on D:, grab an external drive or move it to C: after windows and format that drive as well, then move data back.

    How to disable D: drive in the bios? Also, how can I clean install again if I already have a Windows 10 up and running?

    There is no option to turn it off. Unless you unplug it from the component

    Your C: drive is Samsung 960 EVO 500GB according to your sig. When installing the new OS just choose to install on Samsung 960 EVO and it won't touch your D drive.

    Found a image as example and it's Windows 7 but Windows 10 are the same.

    During installation it found disk 0 and disk 1 with multiple partitions. So let's say your Samsung SSD is disk 0 and 1TB drive is disk 1.

    What you need to do to clean install Windows on your Samsung only without touching D drive is click drive options and delete all partitions on disk 0 and don't touch disk 1:

    Once you deleted all partitions on Disk 0 you will see a 500GB unpartition space. Just select the unpartition space and click next to install your OS on your Samsung SSD.
