I'm trying to repair my botched Windows ten upgrade that has me on a blue screen with recovery error, however upon first downloading easy essential for Windows 10 followed by easybcd, I follow instructions of how to create a bootable usb media, but each time I try, I am at a loss as it pops up this this message listed in the title of my post when I Select the usb, which states as a primary partition is dskmgr, and hit "install bcd"...what's the problem? I need a fix asap please

You can use disk management or a tool like mini partition wizard to delete the existing partition and create a new, primary one.
