  1. Is it normal to have problems installing Win10 on SSD?


    I have a Windows 10 USB and have installed it successfully on 3 different computers (Spinning hard drives), but when I added SSDs on those three computers, every time I would try installing Windows 10 on the SSDs, it always gave me boot errors.

    I had to resort to cloning my HDD onto my SSD, only then was the SSD able to boot. Now I have a third computer with the exact same problem.
    Am I doing something wrong? (EDIT: all my SSDs are Sata connected)

    Specs of first three computers:

    • i5-8700, RX580, 500GB WD SSD, 3x 2TB HDDs
    • i5-3570k, GTX460, 120GB HyperX
    • X4-965 Black, AMD7850, 120GB Crucial

    Specs of this last comp I'm having problems with:
    i3-6300, 120GB Kingston SSDNow, 500GB HDD

    :)

    Win10 Preview install problems

    I had that problem when I went to install Win10 preview. I've never had to install the ahci driver for my mobo/SSD in Windows 7 install, but had to for Windows 10. I also used the GPT partition for the record.

    Win10 clean install on Samsung SSD 850 EVO

    BLUF: SSD is not listed ubder "Where do you want to install Windows?"

    Steps Complete:

    1. I've create a Win10 bootable install usb.

    2. I connect the new Samsung SSD 850 EVO via SATA.

    3. I reboot PC and verify SSD is seen by the motherboard/BIOS

    4. Begin Win10 install via usb.

    5. Get to "Where do you want to install Windows?" and the SSD is not listed

    Problems:

    1. Samsung does not offer a driver for the 850 on their website

    2. Cannot locate driver elsewhere

    Unsuccessful Mitigations Steps Attempt:

    A. Format & partition SSD via Windows Disk Management, then retried steps 1-5 above....same result

    B. Clone existing HHD onto SSD via "Image for Windows" by TeraByte, then verified SSD contents via Windows Explorer....similar result

    Can you please offer some advice on locating a driver for a Samsung SSD 850 EVO 1TB drive? Or an alternative method?

    Thank you
