    Hi,

    Open you FTP client (eg Fillezilla)

    Enter ftp.minix.cloudftp.hk as server
    enter f104556.public as login
    enter public as password

    Connect to FTP site then download OSWIN10RS2GDM-N42C-4-EN-US-Pro-V02-20171110.zip

    Hi folks. New N42C owner here... I just put an 250GB EVO 850 in, and it is visible. For now I was downloading the OS file there as linked above, and would move it to a stick to install. I'm 0 for 3 as it keeps crashing in the FTP Transfer at just over 1 GB. I also have tried to download to my downloads directory.... Any idea what is going on? Using FileZilla...

    If the Key is stored in the BIOS, could you use the Win10 "Re-Install A Clean Copy of Windows" option, or would it just try in the same place vs. on the new drive? I don't know if it gives you a selection option to where it will re-install....

    Hi,
    Do you download the file on a NTFS partition ?
    I tried it 2 times without any issue

    That 1.2 gb is the failed (incomplete) file..... is it odd that it shows as 0KB here?
  20. skynet

    skynet Well-Known Member Trusted Helper

    Yes, it is downloaded in a TMP folder before copied in destination folder.
    Maybe you TMP folder is on a small of full partition (1,2 GB left)...
