when i installed it it took sometime but that was becuase it was messed up but yeah im very happy on how it came out. when i installed i switch from windows to linux it was different since i have yet to do something like that but it was simple to figure out. the switch tripled the speed of my computer which was nice. looking forward in using it in the future
