    Dell has this thing that for all there machines (based on my sample set) that have Nvme SSD's in them they set the BIOS to RAID and use the Intel rapid storage drivers to access the drive even with a single drive. This prevents you from running any native Nvme driver in windows like the Samsung one. The delta in running the Samsung vs. Intel driver is not huge but prevents things like updating the SSD firmware. So you can leave the BIOS setup as RAID or change it to AHCI, folks suggest booting into safe mode for the change over but I did'nt and had no issues, if for some reason it screw up you can just go back into the BIOS screen and change it back to RAID and try again in safe mode.

    Second link in the message takes you to the download page for minitool partition wizard Free 11, added it below as well, and best of all it's free :)

    It's this one - https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834991646CVF
    But mine is the older version, not scan-fast.
    Used to carry my M18x in it. Fit nicely. Gave my old 17" Orion to my wife to carry her AW 15 R4.

    Talk to someone else. This is simply a lie. Watch out for those BS workers. Chat with the part department.

    Upon start up today I received a notification to claim my Division 2 key. I went to the website (gaming.tobii.com) and got the key, just a standard uPlay key. I'll be selling it since I don't want the Division 2, but still cool either way. The key was under "My Games".

    You have to install the Tobii GameHub and Tobii Experience and also make an account on the Tobii Gaming website. Your serial number for your tobii hardware should auto register with the site. Then you just wait for the notification!

    How do we go about claiming the COD freebee that comes with intel processors?
