    Hello everyone. I am trying to restore my computer using a disk due to the fact that my operating system expired on the preview p rt ogram.

    I have a DELL INSPIRON 13 7000 SERIES.

    The problem I'm having is that there are no partitions in the drive and that is preventing me from reinstalling the operating system.

    Can you guys walk me through on how to create the proper partitions in order to install Windows 10?

    Thanks. But not exactly what h I'm looking for. I cannot boot up my computer at all. I am booted into the setup wizard on the disk.

    There is no physical way to create a partition. I need help on creating one so I can install the operating system.

    Hi Sorry! I should have read your thread more carefully! What media are you using ? Are you using the Media Creation Tool. You can get the MCT here from the link I attached
    I prefer using the flash drive (8GB) PNY. You must program your PC to boot to a USB if you use the flash or boot to DVD if you use the DVD. I'm not sure how much you know, or how much help you need.
    The MCT will take you back to factory and you will have to reinstall your Apps. The MCT will wipe your drive and hopefully install W10.
    PS Here's a good read from Window Central!

    Hi You all! Here's a neat little program that will show your W10 Key! It's called Speecy! It will show you a whole bunch of information that you will find helpful!
    The free version will work just fine! https://forums.windowscentral.com/e?...token=WrkmJ2dl
    Not a bad thing to have your W10 Key in a safe location! I have mine on a external hard drive and also on One drive!
    Hey! Maybe I could get a Amen on this thread.

    Hi! I'm really hoping to hear some good news tomorrow. I really don't have any more suggestions to add!
    It's really hard to know what to reply and how to help when I don't receive any responses!
