Hello, just recently got the Omen 15 laptop
have 1 issue with how SSD is separated
i want to have 1 big space for maximum usage, but stock SSD separated in 2 parts (actually there were 4 before, but 2 and 2 i managed to merge)
problem is i have 2 OEM recovery partitions in between those 2 primary partitions (seriously, i thought logically they should go in the end or in the beggining, not in the middle?)
basically it is like this:
(EFI\260mb)--(C:\248,60gb\NFTS\Boot,PageFile,CrashDump)--(OEM\612mb\NFTS)--(OEM\543mb\NFTS\"Windows RE Tools")--(D:\226,94gb\NFTS)
I want to merge C:\ and D:\ into just C:\
Are there ways to do it? Thanks in advance

I would make a recovery USB first, then try something like gparted.
or try using W10 as a clean install.

i guess i will try this Gparted, thank you
i just recently tried Windows 10 clean install, but it only let me to merge partitions that are next to each other (hence i mentioned 4 became 2) it had no way to edit, remove or move OEM partitions sadly
