I'd say that's definitely what happened. It was instant.
It's always possible that there was a minor registry error which was corrected by the install.
Whaever - you seem to have got it sorted now, so well done, and good luck!
Lol. I didn't do anything except follow you two. Those test results may as well have been in Chinese.
I appreciate it.
I do have one more question. though it isn't really to do with this.
The system repair/reboot/factory reset partition would not work for my new (larger hdd). Is there a way that I could make this possible (to reset my system using this new HDD) in the future if need be?
Now I have my system working properly I am going to do another clone before I put any more data on the hdd. That way I ought have a bug free place to start next time.
