    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.

    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.

    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, :)

    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.
