@blahsaysblah - Dynamic partitions and UEFI are not tied to each other AFAIK. You can have either one without the other. At least, this was the case in earlier versions of Windows. The best way to ensure that there's no partition cruft left to mess up your new install is to back up all of the data ...

Do some random googling from your proxy on the topic of the ad? Maybe that'll help seed the randomizer with the correct information.

I did do that. They seem to be scam, "you won a new Samsung" or other phone/pad so I did a bunch of searching on that stuff. Still no luck.

Re: Windows 10, unfixable mess

Quite the opposite of the ops claims I've found windows in general to be very good at making problems detectable and my issues have always been hardware failures or driver problems.

I bought a ready to fly ornithopter bird. I've fancied getting one for a while, this one uses phone tilt to steer which will be interesting. From what I can tell in reviews they seem rather durable and are probably decent kid toys. Here's the one I got in action by someone else. https://youtu.be/LGQ...
