    Sorry about the delay. I’m just now getting the time to reply.. nah it wasn’t late, they just ended up delivering it to an old address I told them to update. Basically I told myself if they screwed over that I wouldn’t even bother opening the box.

    I’m not sure if I’m understanding you correctly, but I had no problem installing a fresh Windows 10 installation.

    Downloaded the official latest iso from MS and prepared my USB stick with Rufus. Took about 5 minutes from start to finish.

    EDIT: Ok, about 10 minutes. After preparing the USB that is... ;-)

    Hi Mufya666, I was wondering if you did clean installation and did you have any trouble, If not then what should I do very first when I receive my laptop again. What should I do if I want to add my M.2 SSD. Thank you

    When I add an Alienware 51M to my card, and try to use this or SAVE12, both say "Your order does not qualify for this coupon."

    1) Install Macrium Reflect on your current computer
    2) Using Macrium Reflect, crease a USB Rescue disk
    3) Make an image of your C: Partition on your new Alienware when you get it, you don't even need to install Macrium Reflect, you can simply boot off the rescue disk and do that. Set the location of the image to some USB External HDD
    4) Install your new SSD
    5) Boot off the USB Macrium Reflect Rescue disk again and this time, go to the restore tab
    6) Hit the Restore button on the top right and browse to where you had saved your previous image (your external USB disk)
    7) Change the boot options in BIOS to have your new SSD as the boot drive
    8) Format any other drives you may have had in your machine

    Just received my AW 51m today (9700k/2070.) I'll be posting benchmarks/temps in the following day or so.

    Have a question though as the answer was posted quite a few pages back. How do I turn off the Tobii screen dimming thing?

    Anyone wants a 10% Discount code from DELL? I just received it in my email and have no need for it.

    To be honest, I’d just clone if you have a proper adapter.

    If not, start with downloading all drivers from Dell. Use Edge or Firefox as Chrome seem to corrupt some drivers, then just install everything in no special order. You have to download Geforce experience separatly and update your gpu driver via this. Also, if you run Ahci you will need those drivers from Samsung.

    Also, before reinstalling, take note of the AW store apps you need to redownload.
