Windows 10: Windows 10 refuses to install to a new SSD

    I wasn't impatient, I waited 5 days before giving up, & the owner needed a working computer. I thanked lx07 for their input & thanked you all, as well.

    In looking online, there are quite a few reports of incompatibility with the Evo range, across computer brands/boards. I'd never run across this previously so thought is must be the drive itself somehow. It did report I/O errors (unrelated to the installation media) along with check disk wanting to run every other restart.

    The owner has picked up the drive & is hopefully going to be able to swap it for Sandisk or Crucial.

    Thanks again

    trying to install win10

    I have been using the apply method for years. I used imagex initially. Anything that can extract from wim/esd will do the job - wimlib, or even 7-zip. I made a little UI for dism which I often use.

    You are being impatient - we get users in all time zones and it can take a few days for people to reply.

    I have just been using this great method since Saturday as advised by our resident guru @Kari. I had installations that just refused to clean install. This did the trick and it faster as well.

    Okay, we're back in business-- they replaced the Evo for a Sandisk & I tried the DSIM installation just to have a go. It cuts down on some steps- but I had quite a few more "windows/prompts" to go through than simply a user-profile-name on restart. Even so, it's good to have options.

    Now, one other question/poll:

    opinions on going through the plethora of WU for drivers vs. using something like DriverPack on a new install? I have a fairly new d/l of DP & was thinking it might be good to get the drivers in before going online for the first time. That way, only updates will need to be downloaded.

    Just my opinion, but I don't trust a program to go out and get drivers for me from different manufacturers. I still prefer to load my own graphics card drivers, and let Windows Update find the rest. I also maintain a flash drive of applications and drivers for my systems, and update as updates are available. So, anytime I need to do a clean install, I'm ready.

    MS Catalog 16299.334

    It is better to have the latest KB files aside before going online. It is the CU that takes time, not the drivers. Not using any third party programs for drivers.

    The 2 latest x64 KB fiile for 1709:

    1.KB4088785 (Adobe)
    2. KB4089848 (CU)

    Run them manually with the standalone installer. The rest takes about 5 minutes for drivers and an unknown feature update.

    You may also try to run Defender first to gain time over WU.

    Good luck,

    I generally try to backup what's on the original drive, if possible, but this time I was going 32 to 64 bit, so they weren't right. Add to that Sony dumped a whole lot of drivers (& I cannot find this model- anywhere) means desperate measures! Snappy Driver (direct from Sourceforge) found and installed everything fairly instantly. Synaptic didn't work- though I'd seen mention of that. I just tossed one I had from a same-age Toshiba & it works fine.

    So, I go online & WU wants to do it's thing. I created a restore point, jic. I see it trying to alter the Synaptic & the AMD display- which I don't want as it's working fast & smooth-- I hope I got into hardware settings quick enough to stop it. I'm off to sleep so shut it down. I just hope I don't wake up to no touchpad or display!

    Thanks all.

    Everything works perfectly except two things:

    I had to revert to Synaptics 15 to get the scroll to work.

    Oh, and that bug intro'd by MS where your screen brightness is F'ed. The slider will slide/numbers adjust, but it doesn't dim when I pull the plug.

    So far, MS's "fix"? Use their cr*ppy generic driver. Too bad for you if you game at all...good grief!
