    Success at last! I am glad you found that a spare USB drive allowed you to proceed with new installation of Win10 build 1803. I will keep in mind the things you experienced with a bad USB drive.

  2. I'm sorry, you are right. I just tried an...

    I'm sorry, you are right. I just tried an experiment with a USB thumb drive and in DISKPART the List Volume command does show it as "REMOVABLE". I normally use list partition which doesn't show if a...

    I have never seen "REMOVABLE" or "INTERNAL" as descriptors in DISKPART, is that what you are seeing? There must be something odd about the way Rufus partitioned the USB and made it bootable, but I am...

    Sum TingWong,

    I am not sure the USB is the problem. Any partitioned USB drive that is plugged in will show up in DISKPART as one of the volumes detected. In your case Volume 4, drive letter E,...

    Hello Sum Ting Wong,

    Here is a theory. It looks like the Rufus installer cannot install on the Partition 0 (Samsung SSD), and the only alternative is the USB stick, but it can't install Windows on...

    Yes, thumb drives will show up in File Explorer similar to internal drives, it is ok.

    In that YouTube video you used, the part instructing on using Rufus, did you create that install USB for...

    You know, if you are really worried that something is wrong with the USB install drive that you made using Rufus, you can instead make a Windows install DVD and boot from that to install Win10. That...

    For my system I did a fresh install of Win10 from the retail Windows Pro USB stick, and installed the OS onto a Samsung 960 NVME drive. I don't remember if the install USB showed up in the "where do...

    I see that rather then let your current Windows version (e.g. 1709) update to new version 1803, you are doing a fresh install. From that image you posted, your Samsung 256 GB boot drive is showing up...

    I too ran into Samsung's daily limit of downloads for NVMe driver vers 3.0. I imagine they want to limit the damage in case there are problems reported from early adopters.
  11. You got it figured out!

    OK good! You were able to re-partition your Samsung boot SSD from MBR to GPT, and convert from legacy to UEFI boot. I had thought that you were stuck with legacy boot if you installed Windows with...
  12. Well, if boot priority list does not show ...

    Well, if boot priority list does not show Windows Boot Manager or UEFI:<device name> then maybe you don't have a UEFI boot but a legacy boot instead? Your Samsung partition for legacy boot could...

    Hi SumTing Wong,

    I see that you have an older motherboard with Z97 chipset, and you said "Boot Device Control was set to UEFI and Legacy OPROM. Launch CSM was enabled as well." Enabling Legacy...
  14. With CSM disabled, only UEFI bootable devices will show in boot priority list

    Hello,

    I think the behavior you are seeing might be perfectly normal. When I was learning about UEFI booting (CSM disabled) vs. legacy booting (CSM enabled) I was at first confused why some...

    Windows "Fast Startup" feature locks the boot drive so Acronis boot disk can't see it

    I was reading about a feature that is enabled by default in Windows 10 called “Fast Startup” and how upon “shutdown” from the Start Menu, it locks the boot drive. This makes the boot drive...
  16. Ferrite Filter Cores on USB mouse cable makes computer more responsive to clicks

    I put ferrite cores around the USB mouse cable near each end, and it appears to increase the computers responsiveness to double-clicks. It is possible my mouse cable was picking up some interference...

    OK sorry I could not be more help. I am not convinced it is a problem with your BIOS, but if the BIOS version is old, it isn't a bad idea to update it (carefully :)
    What I would do at this point is...

    I am sorry that WinRE can't automatically repair the OS load. I am afraid I can be of limited help. I wonder though in each of the original and new "bcdedit /v" output see if under Windows Boot...

    Yes, I would think it is the UEFI version you should boot from. Win 7 would be MBR boot while Win 8, 8.1 and 10 would most likely be UEFI boot. If you see two versions in the boot menu (UEFI and...

    Hi dminches,

    You click "Troubleshoot" on that first menu. Then click "Advanced Options", then "Automatic Repair: fix problems that keep windows from loading".

    I hope that works for you.

    BTW,...

    I have heard lots of talk about how cloning one drive to another (e.g. HD to SSD) is a piece of cake, but in my experience and in reading about it, the procedure is very tricky and doesn't always end...

    That's great! I just cited that as a general rule. Depending on memory speed and quantity, combining kits can work, it is just discouraged generally to avoid problems. Congratulations on a nice build!

    Thanks Arnie, that's good info. Wouldn't it be nice to have 128GB and really fast! Maybe in the future. I hope at least that RAM prices come down in the future.

    I don't have a ton of experience but from my own builds and from reading here and elsewhere, there seems in general to be a stability tradeoff between amount of RAM and speed of RAM. Populating all 8...
