    I want to run it on my real hardware, not virtual hardware, duh.

    I totally agree, I'm running Win10/Win8.1 as a dual boot on the same SSD and it was easy to set up and I've had no issues to date.

    YMMV as usual...

    I've prepared a 60GB partition in my SSD to install W10JTP when it becomes available.
    Hopefully later today I'll have it running on bare metal !

    Going to stick with a VM at the moment, to check it out

    Depending on how Continuum & Spartan work, I might do a duel boot if I like the look of these

    I chose to test W-10 on it's own ssd. I really didn't want to test a VM. One would not know if the problems they might have is the VM or W-10. I just dual boot using a hot swap.

    Because my hardware is fairly new and W-7 runs well on it I will know if their is a problem with W-10 it is W-10 or the programs installed on the W-10 ssd. Takes a lot of guessing out of trouble shooting.

    When the tech that built my computer had both HDs plugged in.
    Windows 10 probably modified the MBR to Gpt.
    The computer now has the Windows 10 HD unplugged.
    Now when I try to run Clonezilla-live it fails with these messages:
    This disk contains mismatched GPT and MBR partition: /dev/sda
    Since I am a Windows guy SUDO is wasted on me.
    To fix the problem Steven Shiau of Clonezilla-live suggested I do the following:
    Steven Shiau Since your /dev/sda has mismatched GPT and MBR partition, and you mention you are sure your disk is only using MBR, you should wipe the GPT table. It's a risk, though.
    Backup important data before you continue the following steps. All the data on the disk my be gone if something goes wrong. Therefore be careful.
    1. Boot Clonezilla live
    2. Enter command line prompt
    3. sudo -i
    4. sgdisk -z /dev/sda
    (Make sure /dev/sda is the disk containing mismatched GPT and MBR partition.)
    5. reboot.
    Good luck.
    Steven.



    I hesitate to do this as I have no backup now.
    Also the line: "Make sure /dev/sda is the disk containing mismatched GPT and MBR partition"
    I have no idea how do to this.
