    Thanks for your reply, here i have 2 questions please: 1. Disabling CSM, is this means disabling secure boot?? in case if i did this, will i be able to boot windows 7 ?? 2. Enabling or Disabling secure boot, does it make a difference if i'm going to install windows 8.1 or 10? or its the same situation??

    How to disable secure boot?

    Do you mean restarting computer and holding shift while i'm at windows desktop ?? OR Restarting while i'm at the BIOS normal screen ?? In the BIOS normal screen, i can't find secure boot, is this what you saying will open a new BIOS screen where i can find secure boot??
  3. Hi guys, i have currently motherboard: GIGABYTE B360 AORUS Gaming 3 paired with core i5 8400 CPU. I need to know: how to disable secure boot in this motherboard, so that i can boot windows 7?? Need also to know: if there will be any side effects expected to occur if i disabled secure boot?? And i have another question: does disabling secure boot, make a difference in case of installing windows 8.1 or 10??

    Well, sorry for that but just to make sure, from the opened windows showing the 5 mentioned partitions: (1) Select C Drive. (2) Click Next and it should reformat during the windows installation. Am i right? or should i click format First then click next??

    The correct steps for a clean windows installation ?

    Actually i'm running currently windows 10 Pro latest version, however i have some problems with, and need to test windows 8.1, so its a different windows installation NOT re-installing 10 again. What should i do exactly?? As usual i was doing from the beginning, Format C and go ahead installing windows and ignoring the other partitions?
  6. Hi guys, sorry my knowledge regarding this topic is poor, so i hope for some help please: Usually when i need to install a new windows, i insert my USB, go to boot menu, Format C Drive and then install windows. However, i heard that i should clear all other partitions before installing windows. Here i have a WD Blue 1TB HDD, with 2 partitions, the C with 100GB for windows and programs, and the rest space is full of games, music, photos...etc In the window get opened to select a partition to install windows, it shows there like 5 partitions: - The C Drive (100GB) that already have old windows. - The D Drive (831GB) which contains my personal data, games, music, photos....etc - System Reserved Partition (like 100MB). - Recovery Partition (like 500MB). - Unallocated Space (15MB). I need to know accurate steps for a clean installation of windows without affecting my personal data (831GB). Does leaving system and recovery partitions without formatting/deleting will affect windows installation ?? Thanks in advance.

    The repeated processes to install windows on HDD?

    Even with minimum damage, so it can be, and that's what i'm asking about, some kind of health degrading that will affect performance from time to time.

    The repeated processes to install windows on HDD?

    Are you sure?? let me be more clarified. Format C and then install windows, after few days, format C again and install...etc Consider this for about 5-6 times (1-2 weeks before the next installation).
  10. Hi guys, i have some strange question and hope for more detailed answer about. Can the repeated processes to install windows on HDD really ruin it?? or degrade its health?? or something like that.

    Discussion about windows 10 latest version 1809?

    Thanks for your time, i think i will not go with neither of them, 1709 is impossible because its support will end after 1 month, not a good time for me to test and doing stuff. maybe its 1803 or windows 8.1 and i'm thinking mostly to test my system with 8.1 as its more stable.

    Discussion about windows 10 latest version 1809?

    Disk Errors is only occurring in the system partition (C), i have another partition and NEVER showed any errors, in addition i have another HDD working with the current one (Removed It Recently), however the 2nd HDD also never showed any errors. As long as the errors are only showed in C, it could be something related to windows, if some HDD has poor health then it will slow down with bad performance to the whole system, and i faced this problem before since 2-3 years with my older PC and solved it by getting a new HDD at that time. I'm listing some issues related to 10 version 1809, found these issues in some other sites, people their mentioned suffering from them. With my total respect, but you can't say that any version of windows 10 is stable, windows only becomes stable when they stop adding features and updates to it, like windows 7 and 8.1, that's why i asked about trying 8.1 or at least try the most stable version from windows 10 which i don't know and i'm asking about, what do you think is better to try ??

    Discussion about windows 10 latest version 1809?

    Thanks for sharing this info, actually i'm getting these errors checked and fixed from time to time, however, i'm still getting random crashes and blue screens although errors are fixed. Anyways i don't think that there is something wrong with my HDD, it should slow down my system if the health is poor, however, my PC is running fast and smooth, so i need to check the version of my windows as some people reported some of these problems happening with them, i'm not sure, that's why i'm asking for help here, if somebody can tell me a stable version of windows to install and test my system.

    Discussion about windows 10 latest version 1809?

    Not all people are expected to face issues with 10 latest version 1809, i'm talking about issues that may be happening with some users, and i list some happening with me. Anyways, i need some stable windows version to check and test my system with, do you recommend 8.1?? (can't use 7 because of my UEFI bios)
