    clean install W10 on SSD designated drive B

    Thanks Andre. I'd come across your article on how to do an upgrade to W10 which I didn't want to do as I wanted to maintain my W7 system/drive and data. But never saw your W10 clean install article. I'm done now but will give your article a thorough read.

    Now I want to set up a dual boot for either W7 or W10 but each SSD drive is now designated "C".

    clean install W10 on SSD designated drive B

    I am trying to do a clean install of W10 on a new SSD designated drive B. I am currently running W7 designated drive C. The install wants to install to drive C. When it offers to select a different drive I get the below screen. It doesn't select B
    however. It does nothing. I do not want to upgrade W7 but rather do a clean install of W10. Please advise.

    Advice on clean install W10 on a GX520

    You could probably do it but if it's the same one i'm looking at it only has 1 GB of RAM and either a 40 GB or 80 GB Hard Drive, you would probably want to increase both of those so it doesn't run like molasses going uphill during a snowstorm in january *Tongue

  5. Thanks, as far as I can make out it has 4GB ram and a 200GB HDD...it's the CPU I was concerned about, something that Windows 8 and 10 needs but 7 doesnt

    thanks

    Well it sounds like yours is different from what I am seeing online, especially sine the stock board in the gx520 is only supposed to take a max of 2 GB of RAM *Huh If you get me the actual model of P4 I could tell you what you wanna know for sure *Biggrin

    Well you can just hit Alt+PrintScrn and then upload it to a site like imgur or if you use speccy under the file dropdown menu there is a save to text file option *Biggrin
