Since you would also like to eliminate the 100 mb partition, then I recommend the approach given in this tutorial. Be sure to read the entire thing so that you, and not MS, will decide the size of your C drive.

Clean Install - Prepare a drve for

After that then use this tutorial to perform a clean install.

This worked great!! Found one error in the first set of instructions. When in the dos window to set the partition size, 100GB for example, the instructions say to type:

CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY=102400

you need to actually type:

CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY SIZE=102400

If you do it wrong you are told how to get to a help screen that straightened me out.

Again Thank you x10


There's no error when done correctly.

"create partition primary=102400MB" adding spaces will get you an error, you do not need to add "size" if you enter it as written.

Ahhh, my error was in not including MB at the end, not adding spaces. It's what happens when in a hurry.
