What would I do?Now I have no idea how to do a backup with this mess using Acronis. I think System means don't delete but I might be wrong. Any ideas with this info man?
Using Macrium (my tool of choice), make a full drive image. And know how to recover.
Then, delete that 258GB partition.
Does the system boot up? (probably)
If so, good.
If not, reconstitute from the backup image.
Then, delete the small partition.
Does it boot up? Probably not.
Always have a fallback option.
What would I really do, given all the other issues?
Full wipe and reinstall.
