  1. The last thing I can think of is to verify the usb. Checksum the download and re-dd. Also try changing the format on the usb, I can't remember offhand but maybe ntfs is what Win10 likes? I always use 1mb block size too however, have had some luck in the past by increasing that although I highly doubt that's the problem here. Best of luck. @RMD80 has covered everything else I can think of as well.
  2. Okay, I looked everything over again and the only thing I don't see (besides the iso which I'll assume is clean) is a hardware list. I'd guess that windows wants to infect, ahem, install on every bit of hardware out there so I'm just stabbing in the dark. Have you checked the compatibility list?
  3. No worries. I'm wondering if its that "media creation tool". My computer thinks anything made by windows is a virus; FOR GOOD REASON!
  4. I'm busy cooking dinner at the moment so I'm back and forth on this -- not a thorough reply here. Your terminal commands look good although I couldn't locate the iso at that link. I tried the few items on the page but couldn't seem to locate it yet.
  5. Brand new setup? Where did you get the Win10 install from?
  6. Understandable. Only solution I had for your question. Best of luck in your search!
  7. Have you tried the Voice-to-text option? Click the microphone on top right of keyboard layout.
  8. Yes. Although without any specificity to your laptop its hard to advise specifically. So here is a general answer. Do some research first. You should verify the flavor of linux you're trying to install will actually work for you. Find your windows 10 key and save it somewhere for later use. Make a bootable win10 usb for later use. (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10) Install linux.
  9. Just in case anyone comes across this thread needing the same question answered. 1. Right-click on desktop and choose "Display Settings". 2. Scroll down to "Multiple Displays" and choose your preferred option. 3. ???? 4. Profit.
  10. Remember that this is actually a 1060M (M for Mobile?Micro?), not the same as a tower build; this is for laptops. I'm not sure if that matters or not ultimately although it's always worthwhile to work with accurate info
  11. Thanks again for the feedback. I'll reconsider, re-evaluate and possibly rescind the change. I first read these statements right after you posted it and spent some time thinking it over. One of the points that came to mind is in regards to lifespan, upgrading, adding and replacing parts. If I were to put off the TI for a few years, lets say, and buy the 2080() now. Eventually I'll likely end up with the TI and even at the reduced price have ended up paying the same as if I'd bought it now. ((2080($800) + deflated TI($800) = same$ in the end($1600)))
  12. Starting to really pick apart the build and have changed a few things; most notably the cpu and gpu. After doing a bit of digging I see no need for the 2080ti as it seems to be looking forward to the future of Raytracing, not really needed at this point compared to the cost. I'm even on the fence about moving this to the 1080ti as most reviews put the 'performance per dollar' higher than either of the 2080's. I've also been looking into the cpu and again it seems a better fit might be the i7-8700k. Comparing the i9-9900k to the i7-8700k the i9 gets about 0.3-0.5% increase in fps at 1440p+ although costs about twice as much. While budget ultimately isn't much of a concern to me, value is. And the difference of ~1% fps compared to the ~$1k doesn't seem to be validated. All of this isn't to say you're wrong by any means and your feedback is greatly appreciated! **Note I put a 2tb Sata as a placeholder for slave drive** PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant Type Item Price CPU Intel - Core i7-8700K 3.7 GHz 6-Core Processor $339.99 @ Newegg CPU Cooler Corsair - H150i PRO 47.3 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler $129.99 @ Newegg Motherboard Gigabyte - Z390 AORUS MASTER ATX LGA1151 Motherboard $239.99 @ Newegg Memory Corsair - Vengeance LPX 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory $284.99 @ Corsair Storage Samsung - 970 Evo 500 GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive $117.99 @ B&H Storage Toshiba - P300 2 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive $54.99 @ Newegg Video Card MSI - GeForce RTX 2080 8 GB GAMING X TRIO Video Card $829.99 @ Walmart Case Lian-Li - PC-O11DX ATX Full Tower Case $125.99 @ Newegg Power Supply EVGA - SuperNOVA G3 850 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply $74.99 @ Newegg Business Operating System Microsoft - Windows 10 Pro OEM 64-bit $124.79 @ OutletPC Speakers Logitech - Z906 500 W 5.1ch Speakers $199.99 @ Amazon Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total (before mail-in rebates) $2573.69 Mail-in rebates -$50.00 Total $2523.69 Generated by PCPartPicker 2018-11-25 08:33 EST-0500
  13. My primary monitor is a 144/1440, so no issues there. Eventually I do plan on upgrading both monitors to 4k, once the tech has stabilized a bit. After everything is said and done the budget for this build will likely be around 5k (monitors, external redundant drives, etc etc) however, I'm only focused on the case and everything inside at the moment
  14. Got it, again something I'd have probably figured out once going into specs on each item. Time for beers! I'll get back to this tomorrow and then reading and researching through the week. I'll likely start purchases next weekend or weekend after depending on how quickly I get through RnR. My work and personal schedule take a lot of my time during the week. For the best though! -Cheers
  15. Deleted one of the drives for now. Also removed case, optical and network. Updated gpu to triple. Also, my monitors aren't anything fancy but I like them.

  16. Thanks for the input! We're still discussing and adding some polish on it, for sure. Just kinda plugged these items in to get the ball rolling and, over the next few days, I'll be digging into each of them a bit better. Honestly, I haven't read many of the product details on anything listed with much scrutiny yet.
  17. Heh, you're answering all my questions before I even ask them! Wasn't sure, as I hadn't read through product details on everything yet, so I just added the network card. I agree on both counts regarding the optical drive. However, I was thinking I'd likely just put it on my shelf until that one in a million need comes up. I can't even remember when I used one last but better safe than sorry! Also I agree with your thoughts on ram however I think I will end up going with that size only for expansion possibilities. If I went with the cheaper route here it would take over all the slots and if I were to upgrade they'd just be tossed anyway -- playing for the long game here! Thanks for suggestions on Case too. I have little clue on which one I'll end up with although I'm pretty sure I want a big guy for this project. The power supply was a stab in the dark, the builder says I'm only using >500w but I'm sure that'll jump up, 850 sounds reasonable. I also agree with the sentiments on changing up the hard drive(s). Although I'll likely keep one of these and choose something cheaper and bigger for a slave. I'm also a bit curious about the Compatibility Issues -- <i>The motherboard M.2 slot #1 shares bandwidth with SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports. When the M.2 slot is populated, two SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports are disabled. The motherboard M.2 slot #2 shares bandwidth with a SATA 6.0 Gb/s port. When the M.2 slot is populated, one SATA 6.0 Gb/s port is disabled.</i> If I had one of these SSD's and wanted to use a 7200rpm drive as a slave, I'm guessing that wouldn't work. I'll play around with it a little more. I'll likely end up with a new external redundant backup being added for the new system too.

  19. Monitor, keyboard and mouse are all already spoken for
  20. I still need to do a bit more reading and researching, nothing set in stone here. Just plugged a few things in to the system builder as a foundation moving forward. Here's where I'm at right now. Budget seems fine although we might end up a touch over the 3k mark, which matters only in relativity to how far over that mark we go! Nothing listed for memory, case, networking or optical as of yet. I'm sure we'll cross that bridge soon enough though! Thanks again for your help. Really appreciate your efforts here!

  21. I'd prefer to not order from outside the country, if possible. Also I'd rather buy the parts and assemble myself. The services these types of companies offer (pre-built) is something I can respect. However, I'm hoping to take this opportunity to learn a little bit more about hardware and am already rather apt at turning a screw! I appreciate the effort you put into this response and took my time with each link and statement you made here. Thank you. This is a good start! Thanks! I took a look around and you must be referring to the i9-9900k, yeah? Samsung 970 also has a 1tb, would that not work in this situation? Suggestion on motherboard? Screw Wifi! lol, that's what I have a laptop for! Found a thread on this forum discussing cooling -- Corsair seems to be the favorite? Thanks for the new resource I'll be playing with, pcpartpicker -- I'll try playing with some stuff on there in a few.
  22. I have the same question. I've been a fan on LTT for a long time now and have been considering building a new rig, was it providence that "what cpu to buy" video was just released(a few days ago)?!! Admittedly, I'm more of a software kinda guy and know quite little about hardware. Budget isn't an issue here however, value is; up to about 3k is where I'm looking. Asking for help with a complete build; from the case to everything inside it. Geographically I'm in Washington state somewhere between Portland and Seattle. Currently my main games are Rust, Path of Exile, 7 Days to Die and the like -- prefer heavy RPG with a touch of pvp type games; Vanilla to Wrath and a 1 month tour of every WoW xpac. Additionally I'd prefer, although its not needed, to be able to dual boot Linux. If there's a hardware limitation just discard Linux considerations as I'm already considering making the old rig Linux Dedicated. For "high-end gaming" it was suggested i5-8600k or i7-9700k. Is the 9700 that much better? I don't mind taking my time to build this, where needed. Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. +++Today and tomorrow(sat/sun) I should be checking this page every 30min or so until BEER TIME! Weekdays are quite hectic+++
