  • Thanks for the answer Eve,

    It has been resolved-should have written a few days ago. The only error msg was booting into windows-bah.dll wouldn't start, have to use elevated run to use magic disk.

    After trying all fixes to get the connector working I gave up and started setting up 10. Along the way I got to the magic disk problem. I don't use it, didn't remember it being on the machine. Wouldn't uninstall through programs-used a uninstaller. Tried the connector after a reboot and when I saw the flash, I knew I was in. There were some fits and starts but it is running smooth now.

    Just one of those problems of a particular machine.

  • Hi,

    If it is a upgraded Windows 10, you may try to un-install previous Connector, restart the client and try to re-install Connector. 

    How do I uninstall the Connector software:

    If the problem persists, is there any error message? Or related event has been logged on Event Viewer?

    Best Regards,

  • Magicdisc is 3rd party software, which is a tool for mounting ISO images.

    So maybe you had it in your Windows 7 installation. Since Windows 10 allows to mount ISOs without 3rd party tools this is obsolete and no longer supported I assume.

    Had nothing to do with Windows Home Server.
