So I may have botched this and need help. I have two different machines with the same problem. One had Windows 7 pro, inserted the Win 10 disc. Went for full reset to completely wipe and re-install windows. That sailed halfway through and now it won't let me refresh or recover. I can still boot Win 7 through the install disk, but no drivers and no internet connection makes that useless. When I try to refresh it says, "a drive is locked" or "a drive partition is missing" depending if I go for full wipe or partial. Startup repair does nothing and I tried a few command prompt things but got nowhere and stopped before I fouled it up more. This is on a Dell Optiplex 790. Any help would be most appreciated!!
