hi all, 

I have hp pavilion b202tu laptop which after getting creators update started showing battery problems. Battery was working fine in safe mode but otherwise machine was not even starting up without ac adapter. So i reset the pc to earlier windows 10 and issue got fixed. After some days on working on something else i allowed windows update and the same problem surfaced again. This time I used hp recovery to recover back to windows 8.1 (laptop was sold with 8.1 and later upgraded to 10). This recovery deleted all my data but fixed battery issue. Its like losing a part of yourself but i'm okay with it now (I appreciate the concern lol). I have two queries: 

1. I don't i can update to windows 10 now. Am i right? If wrong show me how to update.

2. In disk management I can see around 24 gb space named as recovery which is different from 24gb recovery of windows 8. Both are named as D but i can't access one. I guess that's windows 10 recovery. How can i access/delete it?

If a machine has ever had Windows 10 legally installed and activated on it you can reinstall Windows 10 at any time of your choosing.  The digital entitlement is stored on Microsoft's servers and is linked to a unique identifier related to the motherboard in the machine.

 

You can use Disk Management under Windows or a third-party utility such as MiniTool Partition Wizard or EaseUS Partition Manager to delete, merge, rearrange, etc., partitions on your hard drive.   Do not ever do this, though, unless you have taken a full system image that you can use to recover from in case something goes wrong or you accidentally do something wrong when working with the partitions.

Go to the Microsoft Windows 10 Download Page, download the Media Creation Tool, and run it to create either a bootable USB thumb drive for Windows 10 or to download the ISO file for Windows 10 which you then need to use a utility to burn to bootable media, be it a DVD or a USB thumb drive.

 

I generally prefer to download the ISO.   The reason for this is I have had the Media Creation Tool "burp" at the stage where the ISO download has completed and it's creating the bootable USB drive but hasn't finished that step.  When this happens you have to start all over again because the ISO itself is somewhere out there in your collection of temp files or has been deleted.   If I have the ISO file myself I can use Rufus if I wish to create a bootable USB or Anyburn (or other utility of your choosing) to create a bootable DVD [if the ISO will fit, it's getting bigger these days so it may not] and if either one of those utilities has an issue for some reason all I need to do is try again.

 

The download time for the ISO file is what takes the most time regardless of whether you're going "direct to bootable USB" or just saving the ISO for use with a bootable burning utility.
