  1. I got it installed by setting the first drive in the boot order to the target and the second to the bootable USB, it seems that it will work if I just go into the BIOS each time I want to switch OS, but I am wondering if there is a better way.
  2. I was trying to go to partition manually, I will take pictures in an hour or so
  3. So, I have a 1 TB SSD and 4 TB HDD that I want to use for windows and a 500 GB SSD and a 1 TB HDD that I want to use for ubuntu. I already have windows installed on the 1 TB SSD and have files on the 4 TB HDD, I just physically installed the 500 GB and 1TB drives and then formatted them in windows. I have a bootable ubuntu install USB but I am having difficulties during the install telling the computer which drives are for what, it is saying that the drive doesn't have a root file system, how do I set that up?
  4. Memtest ran overnight and reported no issues, I will try Prime95 tonight, I did just update the AMD chipset drivers so it might have been that.
  5. I just built my first PC a couple weeks ago, specs are as follows AMD Ryzen 3600 Corsair Hydro Series H100i AIO cooler Gigabyte X570 Aorus pro wifi Gigabyte 2070 Super Windforce 2x16 G.Skill RGB 3600 Hz ram Samsung 970 Evo plus 1 TB SSD (system drive) Seagate Barracuda ST4000M004 4 TB HDD Corsair CX-M 650 W PSU I installed windows 10 and updated all the drivers, but for some reason the computer keeps hanging at random times and also seems to hang upon first login after a restart. I have tested the memory and it came back fine, I have
  6. yes, that is the problem I have encountered. so it looks like I may have to try a clean install...
  7. how can I unlock it without the password? I think there might be some old files that I can't find anywhere else. it is running windows 7.
  8. no, it appears to be sandisk Edit: I just double checked and it does appear to be a Samsung NVME, is that a problem?
  9. it is compatible with windows 10 (but it seems incapable of running any of the windows 10 updates past 1607, or the major update that was released in july of 2016, there have been 2 updates since then, the latest being 1709)
  10. not yet, that is the only thing I haven't tried yet that I could think of, I just didn't want to go through the hassle of backing everything up and then reinstalling all of my programs...
  11. So, I created a post about this a few days ago, but I feel that there is enough new info to warrant a new post. About a week ago, windows update assistant installed itself on my computer and started attempting to update me to the newest version of windows 10 since I am more than 2 versions out of date now. Unfortunately, every time it tries to update me to 1709 the update fails, usually with no error message, it just simply fails. I have tried doing a manual update with the download from here https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 but that failed as well, and blue scree
  12. so, microsoft recently somehow installed the windows 10 update assistant on my computer (I don't remember installing it) and it has been downloading updates every single day for nearly a week now. I checked it out and it seems to be legit, but for some reason it doesn't seem like it is actually successfully installing the update. This is the screen it is currently giving me, but I am pretty sure it has done this several times before. could someone please help me out here? I went to the windows site and downloaded the exe to manually install the new update, but it just took me back to this.
