Planning to reinstall Windows 10 and I have some questions regarding above Title.
In my laptop, it has a Mircossd built into the motherboard and I would like to know how to use it effectively? ( How is stuff place there? Is it done automatically? Or can I put stuff in there and how?)
In my HD, Drive 0, Partition 1 is System reserve. What is install there? Is it stuff that belongs to Windows or stuff that belongs by the Computer Manufacturer?
In my HD, Drive 1, Partition 1 is OEM reserve. What is install there?
In my HD Drive 0 Unallocated Space
Background: The computer came originally with Windows 8. Took Microsoft offer to update to Windows 10. Problems occur and planning to do a clean reinstall.
Thinking about doing reinstall but what partition to put the install. Thinking about reformat my HD but concern about System Reserve and OEM reserve (Friend suggested to reformat the entire HD and have 1 partition).
My concern is Windows 10 key. If I reformat the HD, would I lose the Windows 10 key. Please note, the key was never given to me physically (ie in paper or email). It is somewhere in the computer electronically and I do not know if I can write this key details for future usage ( this plan to reformat or use a SSD in the future). It is done by Microsoft when I took up the free offer to upgrade.
Thanks in advance for your reply.
