need some help.
had some trouble with a WINDOWS 10 install to SSD.
there seems to be a problem after changing the OS from WINDOWS 10PRO to WINDOWS HOME since i didnt have a product KEY for the PRO VERSION.
there were some issues with DRIVE partitions and not being able to install.
currently, the 512GB X300 that i am using only shows 476GB CAPACITY after successfully installing WINDOWS 10 HOME.
there seems to be some hidden partition(s) that WINDOWS 10 Disk Management cannot see.
i am trying to reset the drive back to the original 512GB.
i have tried Command Prompt processes to format and clean the drives, but regardless of what i have tried, the drive will not reset back to 512GB.
i suspect these to be the SYSTEM and RECOVERY Partitions from WINDOWS 10 PRO installation.
i was told to try resetting the MBR. but not sure exactly how to do this.
i am willing to lose all data on this drive as this will be a totally clean install of WINDOWS 10.
there is nothing on the drive that i need to recover.
the goal is to get the drive back to the original 512GB capacity.
hope someone can help.
