    Default Win 10, can't install

    Got a Satellite Pro R50-B here with faulty hard drive (bad sectors), so chucked a SSD drive in and can't install Windows 10.
    It boots off USB, then after a minute or so the screen turns to crap - see pic. Have tried a couple of older builds but the same thing happens. If I press a key when the screen turns to mush, it reboots. Display was working fine, Bios text all normal, live CDs display correctly, etc. Any ideas?

    Found a workaround, put the drive in another PC and installed it that way then transplanted the drive back.
    Didn't boot first time, but changed a setting in the bios from CSM to UEFI and all good. Bloody computers.

    LOL, so solved it yourself. It means there's some hardware issue with first PC. Probably.

    Or some driver incompatibility.

    Some older laptops can have real weird hardware setups that won't work with anything but the OEM drivers.
