    Windows 10 Clean install on new SSD - Problems


    Hi all,

    Just bought a 128gb Samsung 850 SSD and performed a clean install of windows 10 on my Acer Aspire R3-471T Laptop.

    Everything went smoothly, I let windows update itself and rebooted a few times.

    Now, there are some problems such as:
    - shut down button (from start menu) does nothing, restart button also does nothing. Sleep, however, works.
    - Most apps are launching lightning quick like they should on a SSD but some programs (eg command prompt) when I clicked on it nothing happened. Then after around 2 minutes the window came up! I closed the window and opened command prompt again and it opens up straight away.

    What could the issue be? All necessary drivers seem to be installed.

    :)

    Clean install Windows 10 on new SSD

    I'm currently running Windows 7 with all my drives being spinning media. If I upgrade to Windows 10, I'd like to get a new SSD as my primary boot drive and install Windows 10 on that rather than existing spinning media. Is that possible

    Windows 10 Clean install on new SSD - Problems

    Did you just copy over an image using Samsung's drive copy utility, or physically install first Windows 10, then each piece of software? Doing a clone can cause issues. Also the Magician software has to be set properly, otherwise you are going to have issues.

    I have a 850 evo on my wife's laptop and have Magician set for AHCI Mode on, Over Provisioning is set with Recommended of 10% or 11.8GB, OS Optimization is set for Hibernation off, Virtual set by System, Index on, Prefetch/Super off, Write Cache On, Write-Cache Buffer Flush On, Power Options are tweaked to not allow Fast Boot or Hibernate, drive is allowed to never go to sleep since it is a SSD, System Restore is set for I do believe 2GB.

    I did her install as a clean install of Windows 10 when I installed it on her laptop.

    If it was faulty it would not work. Change the settings in Magician to what I posted and it should work fine.

    Third party security and other tools can cause problems. Along with the OS doing housekeeping for a while after first installed.

  7. I found out to NOT LOG INTO MY MS ACCOUNT during a clean install! It "remembers" some of my settings from the previous install and sticks them into my new install. It made a huge mess of things and many programs were broken. I tried fixing them but it was a right do to undo the mucked up parts. I started again without the log in and it worked great. I had to reinstall everything but I had a good backup.
    Just skip logging into your MS account during the install and you can get a true fresh install.

    Hello John, *Smile

    Yep, syncing your settings across PCs that you sign in to with the same Microsoft account is a feature designed for this. You can turn off sync settings for items that you do no want to sync to stop this.

    SOLVED! I was just about to switch to a HDD again as I had enough until you popped up with the solution.
    Thank you, Sir. I guess it was Microsoft just complicating things, and not signing in to the Microsoft account has solved the issue.
