    Set up 2.0TB HDD & 256 SSD: Winds 10 Dell Inspiron 10th Gen i7 1065G7


    Hello All!
    Just registered, and am glad to join you. After 15 years + of total Appleness, I invested in a brand new Dell Inspiron 17 Laptop - 10th Gen Intel Core i7-1065G7 with 2GB NVIDIA® GeForce® MX230 Graphics and 16GB of RAM running on Microsoft® Windows 10 Home (64-bit), from Costco (free 4 year warranty). My first 3 or four computers were all PC, but I tired of the Microsoft (Windows 98) unintuitiveness and constant invasions of my security, and wanted to reduce the thinning of my hair. Apple has served me well, and still will. But needing a new Lap top and having invested in a new Canon EOS M50 to do the Live Streaming that our profession now demands to make a living, I found that most of the live streaming software was PC based. Better to join than fight. So it's time for the best of both worlds approach.
    In reading the Customer recommendations on the Costco web for my new, as yet unarrived laptop (due Wednesday, May 27), I saw a recurring warning to carefully set up the proper management of the 2.0TB HDD & 256GB SSD drives from the very beginning. From the outset, assign the SSD to programs and the HDD to data, documents,photos, music, films etc. They all warned that this was neither intuitive nor easy with Windows 10 and that they could find little help either from Dell or Microsoft, so they were plodding throught the dense forest without proper guidance. One mentioned getting great help from TenForums.com. Voila! I admit to being the hunt and peck type who learns mostly from diving in and making mistakes, and, if lucky, learning by correcting them. If kind folks here have any advice on how to efficiently proceed, it would be greatly appreciated. I would love to get up and running in my tentative new PC World with as little stress as possible. Thank you & Best wishes for Memorial Day 2020.

    :)

    Set up 2.0TB HDD & 256 SSD: Winds 10 Dell Inspiron 10th Gen i7 1065G7

    Windows 10 Pro clean installation on SSD stops at settings step


    I followed steps for installation on SSD with UEFI Everything went well until the first restart after installation files reached 100% When screen came back it was back to original Install now screen.

    I had disabled secure boot in firmware as suggested. SSD is the only drive attached at present. Should I attempt a reinstallation or are there other steps I should pursue first.

    I am using a retail licensed Windows 10 Pro version installed on USB using Microsoft creation media.

    Dell 8700 XPS
    i7 4790 processor at 3.40 Ghz
    16GB memory
    2 TB HDD Windows 8.1 installed presently not connected
