I installed windows 11, partially on a Samsung 980 pro. Had issues because no internet. So I downloaded the lan drivers for the mother board and also switched the one 980 pro for a second one. I thought there might be a problem since it only partially installed and figured I could reformat a 980 pro.
so I installed windows 11 on the second stick (only had 1 stick installed each time).
i got everything running, shut the computer down. Installed the other (first) 980 pro stick and it will not let me format the entire stick. It has a Partition for Windows Recovery on it.
i have tried going in to CMD as admin, disk list, selecting the disk, selecting the partition and deleting partition with the number and I get error cant do it. So looking online I see you need to add Override to the command when deleting. That doesn’t work either.
Ok. this is solved.
Samsung support called me back.
so since I was wiping the complete stick after selecting the particular disk I had to type CLEAN and it wiped it.
then just had to initialize and format.
so simple

i had Acronis true image 2010, tried to download it but it doesn’t work on windows 11. Great program.
