    Moving windows to new ssd

    As much as I don't want to point you toward Wikipedia, I will, because it's explained very well. Note the top first two paragraphs and the Rationale chapter. This should help you get a surface idea of why the registry is there. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Registry As for why you should always do a fresh system install on a new boot drive here's my take: Because of how the registry and all the programs, games and settings work, your computer has effectively become an ecosystem. The low level connections that the system creates and maintains during years of using the PC are impossible for you to keep track of, and neither Windows, nor any of your programs have the specific functionality to rebuild all of those connections/links between modules, software, firmware, etc. And the registry just gets more and more messy as time goes on. Which can cause crashes and general system instability later down the road. A new drive might not seem much different to you, but to a computer it's a completely new device. A fresh install gets rid of the clutter in the registry, temp files, obsolete settings and system changes, and gives you a fresh canvas to work with.

    Is this old Mac pro worth buying

    That's a dual core CPU with DDR2 memory. It is old. Depends on what you would use it for. I'd guess it would be slow AF for any workload you strain it with. Edit: I wouldn't waste money on this. It isn't worth it.
  3. I also noticed that when I installed Mint the other week. In reality it presented me with 3 options for boot upon powering up, but there was a 10 sec time limit before it defaulted to Mint. I also had it installed on a separate drive. It didn't bother me that much, though.

    Hard Drive not showing up in bios or Windows 10

    Are you sure? I could've sworn... I'm not gonna contradict you, because I don't remember. Anyway @Haganation04 first try doing everything the other members recommended. Other than that, there's a windows utility program built in called Disk Management. If you open start and write "disk" it should pop right up.

    new pc build need driver advice

    How about we come by your house and do your dishes and laundry as well? Look up your motherboard on google with the added word "drivers" and install what you need. Repeat for GPU and any peripherals that require more than basic drivers. You can get inexpensive PCIe wifi cards on amazon.

    Hard Drive not showing up in bios or Windows 10

    Have you set the drive up in windows disk management?

    No Internet

    Choose your OS and install the latest drivers. This should solve your problem.

    Help needed with m.2 drive

    Oh, yeah, ust as I suspected. If you're able to, go to windows and, using disk management, format the drive to windows boot drive. It should solve your problem. Also, what helped me, was disconnecting all other drives I had, while choosing the installation drive. Avoided confusion with drive names (drive_0, drive_1, etc.). And don't forget to set up boot priorities in BIOS after you're done setting up.

    PC or Laptop? What model motherboard is it? Edit: model of motherboard or laptop*

    Help needed with m.2 drive

    Ok, that eliminates a host of guessing. Are you getting an error when trying to choose this drive for the system installation in windows setup? I had an similar issue with my m.2, because the drive wasn't formatted to the boot type that windows requires for it to be installed.

    screen a pc to laptop for gaming

    So you mean streaming games from your pc to your laptop? Sure. Steam can do this. Also Nvidia has something similar but I'm not familiar with it. Regarding to lag, don't worry too much about it. I assume you're not intending to play any fast paced multiplayer games?

    Help needed with m.2 drive

    First off hello and welcome to the community. Just to avoid the guessing game: 1. The M.2 Drive: Did you check that the m.2 is properly seated and installed. Is it recognized by the system? Is the file system properly set up? 2. The Windows Image: How did you set up windows on this USB/CD/Whatever-else-under-the-sun? Did you just copy the ISO or did you actually burn the image onto the media? What else have you tried? This will help us help you faster and avoid repetition and frustration. note: Sleep also helps solve problems, because your brain keeps working while you're not. Give sleep a chance

    Move Windows 10 from HDD to SSD

    As r2724r16 mentioned, you can clone. However, since the HDD is larger than the SSD, that attempt goes out the window. I tried it on my parent's laptop and no matter what I tried, I couldn't transfer. And that had a 500GB hdd, and was being cloned to 128GB SSD. Bare in mind, they have no photos, videos, or anything else on their laptop. Just the os and a browser. Maybe there's another way I don't know about, but that was my exp. I'd recommend a fresh install anyway. Much more stable, and removes a lot of things that just happen to get onto a system over time.
  15. Seems like a good habit. My girlfriend watches tv shows on sketchy streaming sites on her laptop, which has a freshly installed system but is not used for anything else, since it's pretty low spec. The only thing I taught her about the popups and weird sites is how to close them with CTRL+W. She's since become very proficient and quick to react when it happens
