Hi everyone, I just got an Asus Laptop (S500C), it has a 500gb SATA Hard Drive and an additional 24gb SSD, as any other computer I have in the past, I would like to re-install Windows since all the new Laptops or Desktops for sale came with a bunch of software installed, usually not even 5% is really good to keep. Beside the hidden partitions with the Factory Recover, that for people who like make their own customized installation, is a waste of space.
Disk Management in Windows shows me 8 partitions (6 on the SATA drive and 2 for the SSD), what will be your best advise to start from scratch?, the SSD is too small to install Windows on it, but I know Windows can use it; I found a few answers about re-installing or migrating Windows to a SSD, but nothing using both drives, thanks in advance for your help.
Here is two screenshots, one from the Windows Disk Management (showing 0 used space on all the extra partitions) and one with EaseUS Partition Master (showing used space in the other partitions):
