Computers!

Maaaaannnnnn they give me the shits sometimes!

Got my new build up and running this week and thought I would get everything installed on my current drive and then clone it over to the ssd I was getting.

Had it running sweet as and all set for the ssd cloning.

Would it work.... NO!

due to the drive sizes and layouts (rookie error when installing) it wouldnt play ball!

Stuff it, format the ssd and re install a fresh.

Dont get me started on linux!

Rant over!
