    Added to the OP:

    1) Set the boot mode in your BIOS to Intel Rapid Storage (AKA RAID)
    2) Create the RAID Array from the BIOS for the required SSDs and set the Data Stripe Size to 64K
    3) Boot from the Windows 10 Installation Disk
    4) When it prompts you to install Windows and shows you the drive, don't create the partition yet, instead, hit Load Driver then navigate to the root of your Windows 10 USB Flash Disk then point it to the folder which contains the RAID Driver and let it load the first driver (you usually see 2 choices)
    5) Now create the partition and install Windows on it
    6) Configure everything as you like then install all your drivers
    7) Now after Windows loads, wait for about 2 minutes until you see the Rapid Storage Technology icon in the taskbar, then head to the performance tab and set the options like this:

    8) Restart

    What is the difference if I turnoff cache mode vs. selecting write-back?

    The count of 3 shows it was only installed 1 time - there are 2 other patches in that group - but the (2) might suggest a 2nd revision?

    Is that how MS is differentiating the latest version from the pulled initial version?

    When MS reissues a patch it doesn't change the number, it simply replaces the old one of the same number.

    That would be my guess...

    It’s official: Microsoft is pushing Win10 1809 on non-seeker machines

    In the no good deed goes unpunished department…

    I’ve now seen several reports that Microsoft has started pushing Win10 1809 on normal Win10 PCs, even without the “Check for updates” requirement. The forced update march is here.

    I repeat: If you don’t want 1809 just yet, block it. Or you can sit and wait for Win10 to reboot.

    If it does.

    F66F01C1-9FC5-4594-9AC0-EBEF42C88BA4.jpeg Hello Guys,

    I just tried to start a clean install via USB for Windows 10 by following the steps from the NBR guide. I got to the Partition Wizard but I can’t get to the Disk Part for ensure proper installation. I pressd Shift+F10 to open the command prompt window to no avail. What’s going wrong here? I purchased this X1 Carbon 6th Gen notebook and it has Windows 10 Home preinstalled and I wanted to start fresh, upgrade to Pro and remove all bloatware. Please help, I'm stuck. Any direction would be appreciated. I attached a photo of partition wizard.

    Thanks again,

    Jim

    You may need to change a setting in your bios, depending on the model to activate the Action Keys without having to first push fn.



    Try this first: FN+F10+Shift

    Loving that Brad recommends to use PC Decrapifier, I'd never heard of that software before.

    If it 'does what it says on the tin' does it remove W10 as well then, as that truly fits the description? :p
