On my computer, the C drive was showing 1 GB free out of 50 GB, I opened disk management and noticed that there was 200 odd GB in unallocated disk space. I wasn't able to allocate it or do anything with it, so I tried to format or delete the partitions in a clean install instead.
When trying to clean install, there are three partitions that appear, one is the 50 gb one, the other is system reserve or something and the last one is the remainder, over 200GB.
I don't know why but I can't delete all the partitions, in fact I can't delete any of the three. Also windows will only let me install to the 50GB one, when I try to install to the larger one I get an error: 0x80300024
I understand that the partitions may be read only? Is there anyway to format the whole hard drive into one partition again, thanks
Currently I've got it installing windows 8 to the 50 gb one so I can at least get into windows.
