Forgive me, I edited the quote to "it's the" etc...
Thanks LB. The thread has been marked as solved
Should I repeat? The only fail was with 7.
8.0 - 8.1 - 8.1.1 - server 2012 - server 2012 R2 -
server 2016 preview - server 2016 technical preview 2 -
and 10.preview build ad nauseum have all worked perfectly (no fails).
The only fail was booting into 7.
I am keenly aware of my stark departure from typical hardware configurations.
All devices are operating within normal parameters.
There is lots of animosity about silent systems where gamers and power users roam.
The problem is solved. End of story. All devices have been repaired and are working.
I am currently running 8.1.1 with video running as background on the start screen.
Very pleased with how this system works.
... really like tiles, especially with a pleasant ocean scene of rolling waves in the background.
Just set up an extended volume of 3 mSATA drives on a PCIe card.
Now there is an SSD showing with 1.2TB
of available space.
I need to move on to other matters.
Thanks Again Very Much.
