Which partition to delete /format to clean install Windows 10

2015-09-02, 5:36 AM
My windows 10 on my lenovo G480 has failed on me and is stuck in a never ending automatic repair loop and cannot boot past it. I have salvaged my personal data using command prompt and now is trying to clean install Windows 10 with a USB installation media. So far so good until I ran into this wall : http://i.imgur.com/zikNSQK.jpg

So now there's 4 partitions and I'm not sure what to do from here on to clean install Windows 10. Wondering if the 3rd and 4th partition that is lenovo related important.

Alright after some investigation I think partition 2 might be my D: drive, where all my user data is stored,where the windows folder is. Partition 3 is my E: drive, where it keeps all of lenovo's applications.

If I were to clean install Windows 10, should I do it on partition 2?

Here is what did after upgrading to Win 10. I removed the last two partitions as recommended in the article then extended the C partition to recover the space. The remaining unused partitions are pretty small. Obviously one key recovery won't work any more so make sure you have a recovery USB drive.
