Okay, which partition do I delete? And are you sure this is safe? I trust you, but I don't want to lose the wrong drive.

Yes :blink: , but just so we're on the same page, we're going to be deleting the C-Drive, and reinstalling on that drive, correct? It won't delete my D will it? So -- I'm ready for the next step :whistling:

Okay, when I try to delete the second one it says "Partition selected is not a Non DOS Partition"

I haven't tried deleting the first yet. Sorry if this is taking forever man.
