Re: Windows 10

I am running the new build (1903) on three computers (two laptops and one desktop) with no problems. It takes awhile to set up and install but everything went well. I got it early thru Windows Insider program. Should be available for everyone in mid-May.

Re: Windows Resource Protection Error

Steve I was able to boot normal but the installation media would hang at 58%. I have backups, but I went ahead and did a complete wipe and reinstall. Windows update worked fine and I ran SFC /Scannow with 100% verification. I am in the process of uploading the rest of my programs. Thanks for the ass...

Re: Windows Resource Protection Error

Steve I booted from the USB and it said to upgrade, I need to boot normal and run from the installation media. I did that and it has hung at 58% three times I tried it.

Do I need to give up and do a clean install???

Re: Windows Resource Protection Error

Thank you Steve for the information. The last thing I did was create a USB using MCT. I am using version 1809 on a fresh install so no roll back. I do want to keep my applications and programs.

Re: Prepar3d v4

Firebird I installed two M.2 SSD drives to my computer. A 250GB Samsung 970 EVO for the OS, a 500GB Crucial MX500 for P3D. All up and running with a fresh install of Windows 10. I also made 2 500GB partitions on the 1 TB HDD. One for games, the other for P3D aircraft. I used the 120GB SSD for XPlane...

Re: Prepar3d v4

Thanks Firebird for the information. I will order 2 250GB SSD for the setup and will start working on the HD to partition it.

I may have to ask more questions later when I am ready to install P3D.

Re: Prepar3d v4

Question: I have a 120GB SSD with my operating system on it, and a 1TB data hard drive. Can I install P3D on this setup? Would it be better if I get a dedicated SSD for P3D?

Thanks

Re: Prepar3d v4.4

I have been out of flight Sim for about 2 years. Will be getting Prepar3d in a few weeks and was wondering what version do I need. Also what is the best utilities and add on would I require to add a lot of traffic of all types. Last question, when I used FS9 I had between 30 to 50000 AI of all types...

SSD Defrag

I have 2 SSDs in two separate computers. The disk utility I use to defrag (Norton Utilities 16), warns me not to use it on SSD drives. It says that it will wear out the drive faster leading to failure. If this true, how to you defrag SSDs. So far, I have used it with no problems but was wanting to k...

Re: Windows 10

I updated to 1809 with no issues the day it was released on 3 different computers. I am waiting for them to release it again to install it on a touchscreen computer. I have not noticed any problems with Windows 10 except I could never get FSX (Microsoft DVD version) to install. I keep my computers p...

Re: Windows 10

I went ahead and took the plunge and updated the Desktop (Win 7 Pro) to Win 10. Update went faster than the three laptops that I did earlier. Loaded FS9 from my NAS to it, no major problems except for the screen being black. Once I hit ALT+ENTER everything was normal. Flew some last night around the...

Re: Windows 10

Yesterday I upgraded my mother-in-law new laptop. Started with Win 8 out of the box. I had to download and install 167 updates first before I could update it to Win 8.1. Then 47 more patches after Win 8.1 to patch it up. This morning I got the Win 10 invite so went ahead and installed it. Win 10 ins...
