  1. System boots into Linux Mint on HDD, but won't boot to Windows 10 on SSD. It boots pass the DELL startup logo, then just sits on the black screen. All other hardware functions normally. BIOS is updated to latest revision for this model (A17). There have been reports and video evidence of windows 10 and SSD's working just fine on this system. The SSD is one I've been using for about a couple months and functions on other computers. If it helps my specifications are as follows: Intel Xeon W3530 @2.8Ghz Nvidia GTX 1060 6Gb 12Gb 1066Mhz DDR3 Memory (3x4Gbs) 500w DELL OEM PSU HDD: 500Gb Western Digital 7200RPM with Linux Mint version 18 SSD: 2Tb Samsung 860 Evo with the latest updates for Windows 10 EDIT 1: While in Linux, I can read data on the SSD and even move files from it. I, however, cannot write to the SSD even when acting as a Super User (admin). This includes moving files into the SSD from Linux and creating new ones.

    OS Laptop to Desktop

    Ok thanks for the info! I think I understand. Just play it safe, and grab a new OS on a desktop Hard Drive

    OS Laptop to Desktop

    You mean as in physically removing the drive from a laptop, then hooking it up? And what kind of errors could I get?

    OS Laptop to Desktop

    I'm trying to to see if I can put an operating system from my laptop onto a Desktop. Is this only possible through transferring the files onto a "proper" desktop hard drive?

    Combatible?

    Thanks for the suggestion. So this and the CPU should cooperate w/o any BIOS updates or anything of the sort?

    Combatible?

    MSI Computer H110M ECO Motherboard http://amzn.to/2lE1X7E Intel i3 7100 CPU http://bit.ly/2llCkrK I can't tell if these two are compatible or not. What's messing me up is the CPU Page say But I can't find the motherboard's Chipset. The best I can get is H110M. Is this just the brand name?

    I actually forgot about gaming at 1440p, I'll fix that.

    Recommendations/Critique for/of my build

    What would you recommend?
  13. Build The purpose of this machine is to play games on High/Ultra settings at 1440p, watching Youtube and Movies at high resolutions, and having Skype open at all times. I'm posting to the forum's for what the title of the post says, please and thank you. Location: US Future plans: I would like to update in the future to better hardware, but the issue I'm having is I'm unknowing if the setup I have is upgrade-friendly This setup is with 1440p gaming in mind, but I would like to upgrade in the future for 4k gaming at High/Ultra settings Budget: I guess my budget is $1,700 USD and below (preferably 1,500). I'm looking for a semi-decent machine that meets a decent price point while also to have something to start off, but I don't want to spend more money on near-future upgrades just because I was unhappy with what I got. My aim was high quality 1080p with upgrades open to me. Though, I will note that cheaper would be preferable. Also, I don't care about the case as long as it can hold an optical drive and everything can fit and breathe. Considered: Herman's Suggested Build
