No money? Have another PC? USB?

Then it's DBAN to wipe the drive then one more download of W10 using the Microsoft Media Creation Kit to do another clean install like you did before but with "regular" Windows 10.

DBAN is easy to find on the web.
DBAN Tutorials are on the web.

I used to find this tool and tutorials along with where the Microsoft Media Creation Kit is as well as tutorials on this FREE item.

Can i clean the partition

Can i just delete the windows prtition than re-install?

Clean is not deletion.

In reply to: Can i clean the partition

Those are two different concepts. Also you have to remove ALL the partitions to be sure your new W10 will install which DBAN would do for you.

I find many are uncomfortable with the Windows installer's Partition Manager plus there are situations where only DBAN would let us start over.

This is why I shared the sure way rather than the way that should work but has at times failed.

You can try.

" I have access to another computer which i can create a bootable usb."

Odd that you told the forum this up top.

There is a situation that you need a drive eraser. You'll know if this happens as soon as you begin your new install.

And how do i use a dual band 2x2 asus wifi antenna thing? Do i just install drivers and open the driver up?after i plug the cable things in?

As to the Dual band thing.

In reply to: Oops

Most folk use the driver and manual that came with it or on the Asus site. I must not duplicate Asus's instructions here.
