    Had a bit of fun today... Well, Not Really...


    I picked up a Samsung 500 GB 860 EVO SSD to replace my old 250 GB SSD in my main system as a boot drive. The wife has a Dell Inspiron 17R N7110 identical to my laptop. I told her I would pull the old spin drive and replace it with the SSD. I told her it would make things quicker on the old laptop, boot and access and all that. I cloned the old SSD to the new 500GB SSD on my main system and everything worked just tickety-boo. Pulled the old SSD and replaced it with the new SSD and everything worked just fine. I pulled the wife's laptop apart, "More in-depth than you would think" I have done this a lot so no big deal. Pulled the old spin drive and replaced it with the new, my old SSD. "So here comes my brain dead moment." So I boot the system and access my EaseUS ToDo and attempt the transfer the image I created from the spin drive that day. Error!!! Can not transfer a MBR to GPT!! I still have a bruise on my forehead from that. I was so frustrated! I pulled the l laptop apart, "Again!" Pulled the SSD and put it in my enclosure, blow it off and reformatted it with MBR. I put it all back together and ran the back again. It all works and the image is transferring. My brain dead moment #2 All I had to do was to convert the SSD from GPT to MBR when I had it out of my the system! Anther bruise on my forehead... So how was your day??

  10. 64 bit only or 32 bit as well

    in Windows 10 Support
    64 bit only or 32 bit as well: Hi there Anybody know if this (preview) version is 64 bit only or will a 32 bit version also be released. IMO I can't think of any machines made recently that are 32 bit so it would make sense for Ms to kill off the 32 bit version -- of course though keeping 32 bit apps...
