Sorry, I should have worded that differently. Diskpart is part of the OS, so any bootable device has it. You just need to get to the command line. I would try to reinstall with the latest Windows 10 media you created. If that does not work reboot and use the steps below to get to diskpart:

If you can’t boot into Windows 10

If you can’t boot into your Windows 10, you have these options available:

  • Use the original DVD or USB with Windows 10 to access the Repair your computer option
  • Boot into the System Recovery Options with Shift and F8
  • Use Easy Recovery Essentials to launch Command Line

If you have the installation disc:

If you can’t boot, but you have the installation disc, follow these steps:

  1. Insert the Windows 10 or USB
  2. Restart the computer
  3. Press any key to boot from the media
  4. Click Repair your computer or press RWindows 10 setup screen
  5. Select Troubleshoot
  6. Select Command Prompt
  7. Type diskpart
  8. Press Enter


If you don’t have the installation disc:

If you don’t have the installation disc, you can boot into System Recovery Options or use Easy Recovery Essentials.

To access diskpart without an official Windows 10 media, follow these steps:

  1. Reboot the system
  2. Press Shift and F8 very quickly
  3. At Choose an option, select Troubleshootwin10_advanced_options
  4. Select Command Prompt
  5. Type diskpart
  6. Press Enter
