    Hybrid drive


    I ''had' a 4tb game drive before the big windows 10 update last week. New Windows 10 says it is 'unknown' 'not initialized' in disk manager. I tried to initialize the disk, it failed. I tried rebuilding the partition using a 3rrd party software called AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard Edition 7.1, can't. My 4 tb hard drive shows as 0.00kb in AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard Edition 7.1. did windows just hosed my drive? oh yeah, it is an internal drive. Worked flawlessly before the update. During the update it hanged at 50% for 5 hours. I looked on a website it said to reset and try again. so I did. Was that wrong? should i- have let it stay on 50% forever? The number stayed on 50, not going up for a long time.

    :)

    Difficulty upgrading to Windows 10 on a hybrid drive

    Hi BeffernieBlack,

    Thanks so much for posting this! As it turns out, I have two Asus laptops - both were identical at time of purchase. The one that I modded has the hybrid drive and an additional regular drive where the cd/dvd drive used to be, and the other is unchanged.
    The modded laptop with the hybrid drive updated to W10 no problem at all, the one that I did not mod wouldn't update to W10, giving the USB error in this thread.

    I changed the registry as you suggested, except I found that the value of PortableOperatingSystem was currently set to '1'. I changed it to '0', and the upgrade was literally effortless from there.

    Thanks again!
