    O.k.....I simply looked in Settings.....System.....About......I guess there's more to it than that ?......It's just that when I've done re-installs before, it always shows the actual date that it was done......

    Del,

    Settings, System, About shows you the date the latest Version update was done.
    I don't know what it shows after a re-installation. I've never tried checking it after one.

    Easy enough to do with SATA drives connected to the motherboard. What if you want to do a secondary install of Windows on a SATA drive(for multibooting) and the primary OS is installed on an NVMe drive inserted directly into the motherboard?

    Or what if you are doing multiple secondary installs of Windows on that SATA drive?

    Hello @Del 80,

    Whenever I want to find the installation date, I Copy & Paste the following [ ALL at once ] into a CMD Prompt and press Enter.

    Code:
    
    PowerShell (Get-CimInstance -ClassName Win32_OperatingSystem ^| Select ^
         @{L="' Installation Date         '";E={;if([string]::IsNullOrWhiteSpace($_.InstallDate)) {'-'} else {$_.InstallDate}}} ^| Format-List ^| Out-String -Width 1000).Trim("""`r`n""")

    I hope this helps.

    It is not necessary to disconnect other disks for installation purposes, but it makes it less likely for neophytes to make mistakes.

    However, I much prefer to be able to swap disks easily and turn them on and off individually.

    I use disk caddies in 5.25 bays all the time like the link below, but I haven't yet seen anything similar for nvme disks.

    Paul,

    That command returns the date of my last Version update not the original installation date.

    All the best,
    Denis

    I'm not the guru that others are on this forum, but I moved out of newbie-ville many years ago.

    Last year, for various reasons, I replaced my aging Corsair 800D case, with a Phanteks Enthoo Pro Case. The Corsair had 4 hot-swap bays and 5ODD size bays. The new case has only 3 ODD size bays. And my new motherboard has 2 NVMe drives installed.

    Unfortunately, I havent come across any reasonably priced hot swappable enclosures for nvme disk that will slot into an external bay

    a 2 disk nvme caddy of simpler construction would be ideal, but can't find any.

    I took that snippet from my Project Script, and as I have my OS set to NOT update versions that makes sense.

    I have added [Current Version Install Date - NOT Original OS Install Date] to the Script output.
