Installing Open side into a Win8 machine has wound up with the drive divided into half as main partition an two unformatted smaller partitions.

How do I get back to originali?

The install should read 'Open Suze'

You should be able to use disk management in windows 8 to format and merge the partitions

I have found my way to disk management I note you mention format tin and the message when opening. Says format required,

OK if I do that there will be 2/50/50 partitions

But the install process automatically creates partitions,so will it create more or discover the newly merged one?

Ideally the partition would be 'put back' into the main drive to start over.

Is this possible?

Will it let you right click and select "merge free space"

if not then you may have to format first before it will let you merge.

Will try the R click treatment.

Looking once more at /the Vdisks and right click revealed Delete option.

This has given Primary C drive and a similar size of 'Unallocated space.? looking for a merge option.

Or if another install is attempted will throcess still create a clutch of V Drives,or will it utilise the unallocated space?

Right click and format the drive.

when you install Suze it should ask you what partition you want to install to, select the new partition.
