    Windows 8.1

    Hello all, I clean up the last partition the 6th which has 20.01 GB and it worked, it didn't give me a big damage. but then the name of the second partition changed to oem, when I restart the laptop to access BIOS the "Advance Startup Options" didn't show up. then I follow the steps here Troubleshooting not available in Windows 8.1 Advanced Startup menu - Microsoft Community and it worked.
