Hello. I tried to dual boot windows and installation failed couple times. So i have now 5 efi partitions and 4 recovery oem partitions. I would like to join them back again with os partition. Is it possible?

Right. That's about a mess.

Presumably there is only one current working OS on this? On Disk 0, the 250GB?
How old is this OS? Is there any critical data in it? It appears to be only about 40BG actual used space on Disk 0.


If you disconnect ALL other drives, does the system boot up?

Its booting without problem.Yesterday I reinstalled windows , thats why its only 40GB. It is Windows 10 1803 version and its only OS installed on my pc. There is just windows on this disk but i dont want to format it becouse i dont have windows cd. Windows was preinstalled when i bought this pc.

Since this is a brand new install, start over.

Create your own Win 10 USB or DVD install

Disconnect all drives except Disk 0

It is so messed up, there is no other solution? I dont know if i should do that becouse the pc is in warranty. What about migrating OS?

A fresh OS install will NOT mess up any warranty.
Migtration? Sure. Now...which partitions will you migrate?

No...A full wipe and reinstall IS the proper way forward.

Yes.
When that system goes online later, it will contact the activation server.
"Oh, here's garov's system again. No problem."

This is no different than a reinstall after a nasty virus infection.
