Clean install of windows 10

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I previously had Windows 7 before upgrading to Windows 10 and I've ran into a couple problems. I was just wondering how to do a clean install of windows 10, will I need to revert back to windows 7 and do the free upgrade to windows 10 again? And also my computer seems to have 3 recovery partitions, is that normal to have?

If you wanna do a clean install, make a windows 10 usb drive and boot from it. go to google and type that in and microsofts webpage for it should be the first result. from there hit install and format the drive and install it. It will auto reactivate once the updates install. thats the best way to do it for a clean install. during the format you will be able to get rid of those 3 recovery partitions as well. Its not what i would call normal but probably a culmination of windows and whatever brand your computer is having a recovery partition as well. they can accumulate like that haha. hope this helps
