Still can't get W10 to install to my SSD.

Which is a shame because it installed perfectly on my HDD.

But, that said, although the SSD does boot and load apps faster, it is definitely twitchy: the number of error messages I have been getting since I starting using it have been an order of magnitude more than I ever got from running with HDD.

The theory seems to be that as long as a man is a failure he is one of God's children, but that as soon as he succeeds he is taken over by the Devil. H.L Mencken.

Just manage to get it to install on my SSD, after deleting all the previous attempts and using the direct download route. So it was probably duff sectors on the SSD that caused the earlier failures.

Machine is a lot slower at start ups and shut downs and I am not impressed with the "new" format

I'm surprised. Despite the enormous number of apps I have running from start up, boot time from BIOS check to splash screen is less than 10 seconds, and it's less than 15 seconds from sign in to up an running thereafter. That compares to about 1:30 with W7.

It seems that W10 has really got a handle on the SSD :)
