    I thought so too.. I am very tempted to do a clean install to iron out some issues I am having. But how about the recovery partition of the original drive? Any way to transfer that?

    I have read that some Razer Blade owners have issues with the trackpad and keyboard lighting after a clean install. Any issues you have encountered? I also dont want to lose the Razer Windows theme (orange fonts) which I really like..

    Edit: On my own findings there are certain NVME drives like mine that just dont work with cloning. Havent heard anythig yet about Windows 10 OS itslef not allowing to be cloned.

    Nice. Couldn't justify spending $500+ on the 2TB 970..

    I tried to run razer recovery from the cloned drive once installed and it starts to run but after a while just reboots the laptop and same boot error as before

    The recovery partition is copied over if you clone the whole drive (all partitions)

    No issue with clean install...it just takes a Long time to complete the win10 update...but after installing synapse everything works fine and in device manager all seems fine with no alert of any device/component having missing driver or conflict

    As for the orange font... I actually didn’t notice that ....

    Since the blade has only one slot and I have a large steam library...I “justified” the purchase (...ehm...)

    I also tried to run Razer recovery but it seems to get stuck at 1%. No dice

    Ah right. So clone the drive, then clean install Windows 10 on the OS partition only. I didn't think of that.

    Good to know thanks

    Having the recovery partition then installing clean Windows didnt work for me. Windows wouldnt boot. Erasing the whole drive is the only one that worked for my clean install.

    Didn’t mean to use back the old recovery partition... during windows clean install it will create its own one again.

    Yes...full wipe of the drive...:)

    Does the keyboard skin eliminate smudges completely?
