Ok, to recap and fill in some blanks.
Installed first on my son's computer, which had been in need of a fresh format & re-install of his windows 7. My plan was to put it on there so I could check it out at my leisure. (he actually lives at his mother's, a few k away.) However, he was off work that day and hanging around here, and few of his games worked, so off it went.
His setup: fx-8150 on a gigabyte 890gx chipset mb. 8GB ddr3 ram, and freshly formatted 500G WD Black hd.
Installed fine, no issues and seemed to run fine, what little I saw of it.
So, onto mine.
Fx-8350, gigabyte 990fx chipset board, 16GB ddr3 ram.
I put a 200GB partition on my 2TB WD Black hd. Used Mini Tool Partition wizard
Tried to install from dvd-rom, to no avail. Running win10 preview as my main os...
And here we are....
I should perhaps point out, that I have no particular reason for installing Zorin, other than I'm bored and I just wanted to check it out.
