LENOVO G580 How to format hdd !!???

Hi,

I'm having a massive problem. Whatever  I do and use, I cannot delete the 7 partitions to do a clean installation.

Win10 installation USB, Partition Tools [various!!!]....and still the same....partition software says 'completed' and then it refreshes, and shows the partitions again !!!???

I tried LowLevel formatting....didn't do anything !!!???

 

I have disabled Safe Boot in BIOS...still nothing.

 

I feel it is either locked....or it crashed....

 

I'm out of ideas.....any solution?

Boot from your Windows 10 install media USB/DVD, select the language etc. and then on the screen that says "Install" press Shift + F10 to open a command prompt.

 

Next type the following commands followed by pressing Enter

  • Diskpart
  • List Disk   (note drive number for drive you wish to install Windows)
  • Select Disk #      (enter number (#) associated with drive found above.. e.g  select disk 0
  • Clean
  • Exit
  • Continue with Windows installation

 

Good Luck,

I did if from the 'Repair System' and cmd.

It says all sorts of things....one time it said 'compleded/cleaned' but no effect!
I ried deleting partitions too, but it says 'Access Denied'
