Hi,

Try starting the computer with the installation cd and then select "repair your computer" > "startup repair" options from the installation menu. When complete restart the PC

You might have to go into the bios and set it to boot from the SSD.

Yep that’s what I did and it worked. Great little machine now. Should be supported for a year or two anyway. I’ll use it with my telescope program.

Thanks Tim
