Thought I'd start a project on more modern kit to run pallalel to the PIII HP slimline project. It is based on a Smasung Intel i7 based mobo I scrapped for its monitor about six months or so. Within an hour I had all the components need to put it together apart from it's case. Ill call it Slim Jim, which seems appropriate considering the overall size of the of the mobo/hardware.

There's a glitch in the matrix.

Apparently 32-bit is dead and nobody likes P4s.
Of course, as always, I'm open to correction...😉

Throwing F words at my main desktop as it crashes constantly and updates aren't installing after I converted the drive to GPT/UEFI last year using a third party software to do so.

Found the bad RAM stick and reverted back to MBR and fixed the boot loader.

After that, I used the Microsoft MBR2GPT using the WindowsPE (bootable USB containing the Windows 10 installation) command prompt, added the recovery WIM file to my D drive, set the path, and it works. No more crashing and the updates are now installing without issues. Did the in-place upgrade after I converted back to MBR with the boot loader fix with success and the in-place upgrade got tested after going back to GPT with the configuration set and everything is working without issues.

Yeah it can be a right pain in the but if your system is not running well.

Huh. I had my Audigy 2ZS PCI working in my main desktop until I got a better board and installed a PCIe Sound Blaster X-Fi.

I installed a new 700W PSU in the system I'm building for my mom and installed a fresh copy of Windows 10 Pro x64 with the UEFI/Secure Boot setup via the USB flash drive and once I get more parts, it'll be complete and I'll get it set up at a spot so my mom can use the computer.
