    • in reply to: Windows Update fails on one OS on my dual boot system. #2370906

      That happened to me when I installed 10 while other drives were in the system. I have no idea why.

      Disconnect the other drives, repartition, reformat, and reinstall. Then reconnect the other drives.

      Yeah, I had disconnect the other OS drive, delete and reformat the troublesome drive and reinstall. Hell of a job, it takes over two days to reinstall my workstation with it’s huge amount of audio software… and the darn authorisations…

      I think the problem, particularly with dual boot systems is that Windows ‘shares’ files with other drives in the system. With my setup, even when everything works fine I can only boot up from one of the drives via Windows boot manager which obviously shows the two OSs as options. Which means only one of the OS drives has the necessary file(s) to boot the system.

      Thanks for your interest, guys,

      Mauri.

      Hi all, I hope everyone is well…

      Thank you very much for taking part in this topic, it has somewhat moved beyond me but I really appreciate everyone’s participation and willingness to help.

      One thing I suspect is maybe the culprit of my issue is caching, when moving large files (more than a GB) the speed for several seconds is peaking at some 470MB/s then sharply slows down to around 40MB/s. If that is the case there’s not much that can be done abut it.

      Thank you guys, you’re the best!

      Mauri.

      @PaulT,

      I ran CrystalDiskMark and the difference between my System drive Samsung SSD 860 EVO and the USB drive, Samsung SSD 860 QVO is absolutely massive, but it seems I can’t post screenshots here…

      Correction, I was shown how to add the attachments, thank you!!

      @Alex5723

      I’m not sure what speeds I’m getting because writing small files, up to several hundred MB,  seem to be very fast but large ones, say, over a GB actually hang the writing process and even cause the computer to freeze as well.
      I’ll keep trying and let you know what happens…

      Again, thank you everyone.

      Hi,



      @Paul

      I’ll have to get back to 5723 Alex a little later…

      Thanks everyone!

      Hi, and thank you for the reply.

      It seems my aging ASUS X99 Pro board only supports USB 2 and 3, would that be a major limitation? One would think even with USB 3 an SSD would be a lot faster than an HDD…

      Thanks again.
