    How to remove Win10 compleeeetely from Win8.1 dual boot

    This what my disk partitions are:
    Click image for larger versionWhat are those partitions numbered 2, 3, 4?

    I have not changed the partitions from beginning.
    In the beginning, while installing win8.1, i partitioned the complete hdd(GPT) like: C, D, E, F, X.
    C for Default Windows and D for any other OS for dual boot.

    Now, at starting, There was no dual boot; I installed Win8.1 on C, and D was empty. When Win10 prev came, I installed w10 on D with dual boot.
    After that I installed different builds of w10 on D few times, but w8.1 was not reinstalled on C, it was as it is after 1st installation.

    In Jun2015, I reinstalled w8.1 on C. And I also reinstalled w10 after its release on 29Jul. I'm writing all these because I don't know in which partition the boot manager is. I know in disk management it's showing C, but.....

    I don't know why but now-a-days system starting process from pressing "on" key to w8.1 user login screen has became bit slow. After pressing "on" it takes 1min 20secs to reach OS selection screen.

    So, I want to remove w10 and it's boot manager (if any) completely; and make the w8.1 just like if it's installed in empty hdd without dualboot.

    3 healthy partitions:
    1 of windows 8.1
    1 of windows 10
    1 of the manufacturer

    I don't know about the unallocated partition.
