Windows10 experience


 I did install the technical preview of Windows10  on a separate HD
After some puzzling how to make an boot-able external HD
A process that is complicated in Windows.
 I had my old W7 HD  backup since replacing it for a SAMSUNG SSD 500G EVO
SAMSUNG has its migration tool to move a complete HD  to the SSD ( SAMSUNG SSD only)
From a running W7 system without any problem.
No need for disk image boot CD.
What I was looking for was a simple way to repair my W7 HD where Windows was deleted
Just copying back the Windows map is way too simple...
Just because some parts are missing the drive had to be reformatted destroying installed software Throwing through the window all the time spend on installing those parts.
Making a bootable usb / HD W10  a lot of discussion can be googled  about this subject.
more methods can be used but a very simple method does not exist.
Easy BCD 2.2 of Neosmart supposed be able to do this easy but I could not find out how to make sure what drive I was making boot-able confusing and to risky to work with.
Why is it still needed to follow the relative complicated way
with the power-full dos commands also risky.
diskpart
list disk

select disk x (X is de driveletter die overeenkomt met de USB HDD)
clean
create partition primary
active
format fs=ntfs qucik
assign
exitk


Mount de Windows 7 of 8 ISO Image in een Virtual Drive. Dit kan met de freeware applicatie MagicDisc
De USB Drive Bootable maken.
Ervan uitgaande dat H:  de virtuele drive letter is waar het ISO-image van Windows 7 of 8 is geplaatst en G: gekoppeld is aan de Externe HDD.
Open de command prompt en voer de onderstaande commando's uit.

h:
cd boot
bootsect.exe /nt60 g:
Why SAMSUNG migration can do this automatic?
anyway i had to reformat my old HD since it did not want to boot W7 anymore.
An upgrade W7 to W10 could be available short time.

I moved W10 to the HD and installed it
The HD was bootable when placed in the SATA slot of the LAPTOP
But it did not boot as USB device.
The W10 logo came on and the waiting circle but nothing more.
The disk activity LED stopped blinking and went to stable on.

But with the drive intern I could run W10
Installed VB6SP6   using a special installer for that.
VB6 IDE did run but the data environment msde.dll did not install no reason given.
Could not do a complete test without connection to a database.
Then last evening W10 did an update and after that i could not start
it needs repair  but no repair path was given.. it stays in an endless startup loop
My W10 experience was ended after last night.
But tt looked okay W10 the start button was back and VB6 could run the IDE more the in W8

Tried to install the W10 32bit version
but got struck with this message

 a hopeful start...
but then after 10 seconds
