    I clean installed using the whole of the ssd. Installation went just like W7 and it only crashed during the update.
    I went through a very similar situation in which an SSD, which previous ran Win8 without problems, failed again, and again, and again when running Win10TP. The most failures were after Build 9879. Got so disgusted that I migrated the install to a spare HDD and the problems vanished!

    So, after a few days of everything working OK, I retried using the SSD -- erase all the content, migrated Win10TP there, rebooted -- and started having problems almost immediately.

    So ... I grabbed a different brand of SSD, migrated Win10TP there ( a week ago) -- and have not had ANY problems since.

    I checked the previous SSD with SSD Life and with CrystalDiskInfo, and even with the vendors own SMART utility -- and it passed each one with flying colors. But, Win10TP would not run on it without serious problems. Oh,, and now, I'm getting a replacement through their warranty RMA program.

    So basically, you could just have a "bad SSD" (Like I did).
    You might be onto something here Mark.

    I took the 120gb ssd out of the failed clean install pc, and made a copy of the W10 9926 in the upgrade machine. So the upgrade machine has the ssd. I formatted the 250gb hdd out of the upgrade and fitted it to the failed clean install and Windows could not see the drive. The bios could ok. I had a 60gb ssd which Windows could see and 9926 has installed. All in one day, there have been 9 failures to install Nvidia and 3 failures with Silicone image, 10 and 4 were sucessful. I wonder if these were power related, I set power options in control panel to 5 hours both but I've just found "settings---system---power options" which were still at 5 hours and 15 minutes. Bythe way, I used Mini Tool Partition Manager version 9 which makes it very easy to migrate the OS between drives.

    In reply to an earlier question from Slartybart which I forgot to answer. I actually made three copies of the ISO. The first two were from the same download, one on a dvd-r and the other on a dvdrw they were different sizes probably due to differences in formatting. I downloaded the ISO on another pc and made another dvd-r which had exactly the same number of bytes, 4303388672 as opposed to 4206886912 for the dvdrw. I needed to be sure that the ISO/media that I was using was not the cause of my troubles.

    I'll have to read more of the thread, but want to post this :
    DVD-RW might cause some problems - only use DVD-R discs.

    DVD-RW is hit or miss ... depends on the writing software / hardware and the reading device. If it's the same device, there might still be issues. Stick with DVD-R discs or use a flash drive (4 GB should be big enough - 8 GB more enough) There are some flash drives that say they're 4 GB but fail writing slightly less than 4GB. If you try a Flash drive and have trouble, try another flash drive.

    There's something really wrong here.

    I've just got the upgrade pc to 9926 in the last hour and without having to re-login to W10 forums. I will have to change to a larger drive as the 80 gb I am using has only got 4 gb free. Funny thing was, I fancied that I could hdd noises when I was convinced that I was using an ssd. Seeing 80 gb in my pc proved that it was an old WD that I bought on ebay. I have a spare 120 gb ssd to use.

    Jim, I resisted posting this as my first reply, but since you opened the door:


    I don't know why tinmar49 is having so much difficulty, we'll have to wait for the next post. Hopefully the tutorial helps, but I'm here and you're here if there are questions about a step.

    tinmar49: If you are at a step and get stuck, ask before trying to figure it out on your own. Sometimes people are too close to the problem to see what needs to be done. I've been there myself
    Reminds me the girl who wanted to call a record shop but got the wrong number and some guy on the phone;

    Girl: I am looking for hot lips and seven kisses
    Guy: I have only 2 balls and seven inches
    Girl: Is this a record ?
    Guy: It may not be a record but it is a damn good average

    In most cases I would think it would be.
