I don't have to piece together anything from PC Partspicker.

I am now the proud owner of a new gaming rig :)

It's all AMD, which goes against everything I have trained myself to believe since I had a Win 3.1 machine back in the day.

I was in search of an i5 or better with an nVidia card. Instead..... I went to the dark side.

Got a six core with a Sapphire RX470

Saw it on the internet this morning at a place called OfferUp and the dude lived 25 minutes away. We both agreed to meet half way and I by-passed the offerup site and threw cash in his hands.

The card is a few years old, but everything else is brand new. I am using it right now to type this. It does have Win 10 Home on it, and I think I will take Kevster and RocketJedi's recommendation and roll with it. I will have to locate the corporate edition of Win 10, though. To go from Win 7 Ultimate edition to this..... almost makes me want to put Ubuntu Linux 18 on it..... almost.

See ya in the servers, Gentlemen.

If you have a key you may be able to change it. good luck with your new system. I think by next winter I may be building a new system.

I heard from the grapevine, that RJ is looking to build a kickass 386 SX machine. I'm told, he doesn't like the math co-processor. LOL :laugh

Hello.

I finally bit the bullet and did a fresh install of Win 10. I even paid for the license key instead of utilizing a boot loader like I did for many years with Win 7.

It is the Home edition and not the Pro. I believe that was a mistake. Even though I am the only user and I am the administrator, it doesn't think I am. I am going to utilize Kevster's instructions closely. Just figured I would pop on and give an advanced "Thank you" for all the time that is involved with stuff like this.

I've never had a problem with either of those utilities that I provided links to. I use them mainly, as I've said, to disable the bullshit that Microsoft adds in and also most of the monitoring crap. All that bullshit phoning home all the time, takes up bandwidth too. So getting rid of what you can, can be a big help.

what instructions? why were you using a boot loader? installing windows is a really nothing complicated. boot form usb/cd and install. windows 10 auto formats prior to install its easier than ever.
