Windows 10 Pro/ Windows 10 Pro Insider

I got a new ssd. From the time I opened the box, installed it, disconnected the other 3 HDS, and installed Windows 7 Pro from USB was exactly 21 minutes. BTW, that also includes using Barefoot kids tutorial using diskpart to create an aligned partition and formatting the ssd before installing.

That should answer any questions.

Windows media player 12 playing half a second faster...
my windows media player seems to be playing the visual about half a second faster than the actual sound. how i came about this theory is that i opened up WMP12 and VLC at the same time and got the sound to match perfect, as i would see WMP12 skip a frame faster than VLC. I noticed this when i first...
