Please help..Recovery Issue

2018-05-29, 19:44 PM

So I was trying to do a recovery by just doing a fresh install using my recovery disk but I'm having an issue. When I try to choose the partition to load the OS onto, I'm getting message below. I don't know what to do next. Can someone please give me some advice/direction? Do I need to get a new Window's OS?

That looks like the message you would get if you were trying to install from a fresh win 10 image, like the kind you would download or buy from microsoft.  That isn't a recovery.  If you want a fresh install, choose a custom install on the previous screen, then delete all 5 partitions and install into free space.  It will make the partition structure you need.  If your image is before the April update (1809) I suggest you recreate it before installing to save a lot of updates later.
