Because I lost my old Partition on my C: during a reinstall of windows 10, I made 10GB free of my D: partition shut it down and now windows is not starting properly. I used my USB boot, and it says that all my partitions are unfit because of GPT partition. I am tired of this, I just want it to work and my data back.

    There are third party software and companies that may be able to get data from problematic partitions.

    What is the current status of the disk drive?

    What are the status of the files on other disk drive partitions?

    For this thread did you want to install a fresh version of Windows 10 as a clean install or something else?

    Boot to the computer's BIOS and look for BIOS settings for Legacy, UEFI, and CSM.

    Indicate the menu options.

    And if possible take pictures with a camera or smartphone camera and post images or share links into this thread.

    For share links please use one drive, drop box, or google drive.

    Indicate whether you want:

    BIOS Legacy > Drive partitions MBR

    BIOS UEFI > Drive partitions GPT

    Do you currently have available a Windows 10 Media Creation Tools (MCT) or bootable flash drive with Windows 10 iso?

    And can you delete all partitions making an unallocated disk drive to perform a clean install Windows?
