For some reason, after I install the OS I see that my SSD only has about 10gb left, but all the files only take up about 11.3gb. Windows 8 does say that there should be 30gb total, but it doesn't say what's being used that takes up the extra 10gb.
Probably space your page file/hibernation file are taking up as they are hidden files on the root of the drive.

Is this from converting the SSD to an MBR format?
No

Also, in your step about clicking on Drive Options > New > Apply > Click on bottom partition, I only have one partition related to the SSD. In DiskPart, should I create another partition, then continue on through the steps?
No
Quote:
And one final question (even though I know this isn't listed in your steps), I went through regedit and changed the directory of both Program Files to the 500gb Hard Drive, but after that Internet Explorer would crash instantly. Any way to correct this?
IDK, I never have done that.

Alright then, I am going to try and reinstall Windows 8, but why would only one partition be created from hitting apply within the Drive Options?
I made sure to select it and convert to MBR when in DiskPart.

idk, doesn't really matter.

that doesn't do anything. All that does is make sure the drive is in a MBR format. It isn't even needed as once you do the clean command then it deletes any GPT or MBR data and rewrites the drive as MBR by default. I just took out the MBR part.

It wasn't Pokki actually. I still have no answer as to why Windows 8 won't shut down when I choose shut down. Possibly an issue with my Logitech G15 because everytime I go to shut down it says LCD clock issue popped up and that's my G15's LCD screen but ultimately IDK. I also wish Logitech would release new drivers for this keyboard cuz my Windows key doesn't work and neither do my G keys.

But yeah, shut down problem persists.

I also don't have a fast boot up. I don't know if it's because I upgraded to windows 8 rather than fresh installed it...but start up takes 30 seconds where windows 7 took 18 seconds.


Logitech finally released Windows 8 drivers..Gkeys working again, gonna' shut down and see if problem fixed.

Nope, shut down problem still the same, it merely restarts.

I think you are on the right track. It seems that there is an issue closing out the logictec service with your board. But as to why it takes so long to boot, I don;t know. Have you tried disabling your startup items and possibly turning off un-needed services?

My old Logitech board would cause a huge increase to boot times on any OS. It's the built-in USB hub in the keyboard that takes a while to initialize sometimes.

IDK if it's the keyboard, guys. I never had a problem with it on Win7. Like I said, Win7 startup times same hardware was 18s. Now it's 30s.

But honestly, start up time means nothing to me almost because I usually come home from work, push the power button then leave to change out of my work clothes so by the time I come back to PC 20 minutes have passed. I mostly need my shut down button fixed. Instead of shut down it restarts.

Ha, yeah, I'm a bit the same. Come back from college or wherever, press power button, then go and make some tea or something. Yet when I do notice that it takes 10, 20 seconds longer to boot than it used to, I get annoyed still redface.gif
