I just watched a YouTube video, and I think I may know where I messed up. I saved the windows 10 media tool to my USB. The video that I watched, the guy saved it as an iso to his desktop. Then he plugs his USB in and connects to Rufus.

Should I delete what I've downloaded on my USB. And start over? This time downloading the windows 10 and saving it as an iso to my desktop? I think that's how I would be able to select the location of it on Rufus.

OK I think I have it now. I was able to delete the USB contents, then I re-download the windows 0 media installation, saved it as an iso to my desktop. Opened Rufus and created the USB. Now I just have to restart my comp, hit the F9 or F11 and go through that process.... Do you.. Or anyone know what exactly I have to delete??? Now I'm nervous about this lol

Simple way to delete the c drive is go to this pc and rename c drive to windows and during windows installation process delete the drive named windows.

HP recovery drive is of 10-30gb just find the drive within 10-30gb and delete it.
Good luck.
I hope this worked for you.

Ii'm writing this on what looks and feels like a brand new laptop!! Thank you so much. I followed your steps and did it!! It was very nerve wracking when I was ready to install because it asked me what partition Ii wanted to delete, and remembering you had said to make sure I deleted the C drive, I got nervous. But I started by deleting the recovery partitions, then I did the other 2,and tried leaving the one that said "Main" or something like that. But it wouldn't work. So then I just deleted ALL of the partitions, and it worked. I can't thank you enough! It feels so good knowing that I can do that now, and that I have a clean copy of windows saved on my USB, and I have already created a restore point. Now i just wnt to get into this a little more so that I can understand exactly what it was that i did, and why. Anyway, thank you again, you were great!
