Yep takes quite a bit to get her going but spot on she is as always

Win-10 System spec's well there are some invisible system spec's that are required to use fast start in 10 that are never posted by M$
Worst thing that can happen "which the 10 installer does not disable fast start if not compatible" is a person will most likely loose a hdd or possibly an ssd because a mother board can not wake it up after being put to sleep or hibernating it.

Just seen it too. It is full screen and there is no X to close it.

MS still up to their old tricks though. The option buttons that are in full view look like they are the only choices, but hidden off to the left in tiny print and in near the same color as the dialog box is a decline option.

I'd prefer a close button. I do not trust what that Decline option might actually do.

Best option: hide KB 3173040 .
