Hi and welcome to FpcH

There should be no problem installing Millenium on an SSD.

What size SSD have you got?

Have you tried formatting the drive as the installation suggests ?

windows files cannot be installedon your hard disk because the format of drive c is incompatible with windows me you can have setup reformat drive c for you or you can quit setup now and reformat drive c your self, formatting drive c will erase all files on the disk , the disk is 120 gb , and i have tried formatting in the past but it kept stopping for some reason , i am trying now to reformat my drive,,, its at 10 `0%, thanks for the reply

Hi,
Sorry for the slow response - I have been away.

There are two options when formatting.
FAT32 - older systems with small hard drives

NTFS - newer systems and large hard drives.

You should use NTFS when prompted.
