    Change boot?


    So I bought a shiny new gaming laptop with 2 drives - 1TB HD and 1 125 SSD. Had Win 8 on it so I upgraded to Win10. Everything fine - it put Win10 on the SSD which is the present boot drive. Then downloaded 2 games - also on SSD.

    THEN I used PCMover to tnx everything from old laptop to new - 27hrs worth. It tnxed to SSD as well and stopped when it didn't have enough disc space. Did the UNDUE and then tnx to the HD - drive D. However, the undue did not undue - still had a full SSD.

    So I started to delete stuff off the SSD. This morning when I booted the computer it boots to desktop but no internet, many of Win stuff does not work. Went to use restore point - guess what? WIN10 DOES NOT USE RESTORE POINTS LIKE ALL OTHER WIN PROGRAMS IN PAST. You have to set it up ahead of time - not automatic any more.

    So I have no restore points.

    Long story short, I am now using a USB flash drive to make an installation media for another computer.

    Some questions -

    1- can one reformat an SSD just like a HD?

    2- can I switch WIN10 to the HD and switch it to the boot drive? (Remember, Win10 upgrade is on the SSD now.)

    3- how is the best way to solve this problem?

    Tks for the help - jb

    :)

  3. Windows 10 can't display English in chinese laptop bought in china

    Yes, same here. Microsoft doesn't give the solution, they are cheating us. Always leave the question without giving the solution

    Change boot?

    Yes you can treat SSD same as a HDD, partition it, format it etc. just don't defrag it. Looks like 128 Gb is way to small for what you need it for. You can convert old HDD to USB and use it to store files on it.
    Best way to solve that problem is to install your HDD in the laptop as secondary drive and point it as target when you install large programs/games. If your laptop can't accommodate another drive, there are adapters to install it instead of CD/DVD drive.
