  1. My system has a small system SSD and a secondary storage HD. I made a clone of the SSD to a larger one. It will boot on it's own, but if the original storage drive is connected, which I still need, the clone will not boot. No issues setting it in bios, but just refuses to boot with that drive connected. Any suggestions?
  2. Oh lord.. So I managed to change the drive to gpt by using Windows boot usb but when I went into Disk Mgmt the disk was not initialized. I had erased it earlier. So now in Disk Mgmt I can initialize as a gpt volume and format a simple volume. Now when I go into Samsung Data Migration the disk goes offline and I have to start over again. It just keeps going offline every time. I have switched the SSD positions around just in case it was a cable but that hasn't changed anything. (Windows is no easier to work with now than when it debuted)
  3. I got there through device manager. It is MBR but so far using the conversion isn't working. I'll keep looking. Thanks.
  4. Tried this and got stuck. A number of the commands are a little bit different which was fun trying to figure out. Then I got to the 'create partition efi' part and it says MSR and EFI partitions only permitted on GPT disks. This really should be a much simpler process o_O.
  5. I have 2 drives in my current system on SSD and one reg HD. Windows is on the SSDand games and stuff on the other. I put a new Samsung SSD into my PC and used Samsung Migration Tool to move everything. No problems there. When I removed the original drive and put the new one in it doesn't show up in Boot Manager on startup. I have to F11 on startup to get the menu then select from there, but even then sometimes it doesn't give me the menu right away and I have to reboot. I've gone into the UEFI and changed the boot order and it still doesn't show up on booting. It just shows the reg HD. I'm not
  6. Thanks for the suggestions Seems whenever I post new gear is coming out. I'll wait for the new stuff to come out. I'll go AMD for this build for sure. Using the RX 480 for a while seems like a good idea as well. Thanks again.
  7. Budget (including currency): $1000-ish. Can go up a bit if needed. Country: Canada Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Warzone, BF, Doom Eternal etc.. Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): This is my current setup that I put together about 4 1/2 years ago. I don't need any peripherals. Frame rates are pretty rough as soon as there's any action on the screen in Warzone. I posted about this back in June but
  8. Good to know. I think I can manage until new hardware is out
  9. I've reduced my graphics quality and settings to try and improve gameplay. It has helped a bit. Only so much you can do with older systems
  10. Cdn pesos. I haven't thought much about budget. Just looking at the options then I'll decide based on the cost. Thanks.
  11. Below is my current system that I put together about 4 years ago or so. I'm a very casual gamer and my current system is struggling with Warzone. I'm just wondering if there's anything that could be upgraded to increase performance without going into full system build. Vid card, RAM, CPU? Any input appreciated.

  12. I'd like 1440 and higher refresh rate as I do some gaming.Overall just looking to up the quality. I'll definitely be keeping the current monitor and moving it over to another machine.
  13. I'm currently using a BenQ GL2460 and I'm looking to upgrade to something better. I know very little about monitors as I've spent much of my time previously on an iMac. Budget around $500 Cdn or less. These are the specs of my current PC.

  14. I switched over to Mac in 2002 when the Mbox for ProTools LE came out. Later on I switched to Logic and have been using that since. I'm looking at maybe getting away from Logic but it's not easy to leave the DAW you know. The difference in performance is ridiculous
  15. Any suggestions or tweaks anyone would recommend to improve upon the Ryzen build Linus posted a while back. Keeping the price the same or a bit lower.
