    I want to go from ultimate to standard (and keep the old ultimate stuff) via an update.

    Do you have a previous Komplete version? I have an update option to go from k11u to k12. It's like $99 US dollars lol

    I bought a boxed version of K12U CE upgrade from Guitar Center. Before I ordered it I had the option to buy just a serial to immediately download. I don't mind waiting for the physical drive.

    Just a general question for those who've purchased a boxed version of the ultimate upgrade: does the hard drive contain everything including the Select and Standard version stuff? As of yesterday, I have the standard K12 (download) and I'm tempted to order the ultimate boxed version before the sale ends. I'm already backing up the downloaded files as well as installing them but it would be great to have a full drive of all content. I'd probably make a second back up of that to just to be safe.

    I have to say...it was the first time I ordered something from them.
    The fact, that NI themself doesn't really know what is going on there, makes me feel slightly irritated about their selling practice.

    If I knew that, I would have bought it from NI.

    Now I will wait until tomorrow. If you have a look at their "forum" at KVR, they couldn't deliver the serials for Cubase Crossgrades yet. It feels strange.

    Maybe a case for Dr. Strange ;)

    I don't think it is possible.

    How many Komplete products/bundles and versions do you currently have? This will help people to assist you.

    If this happened also with Cubase serials then you know something odd is going on there. We will look into it but I'd probably stay away from purchasing "download" licenses for our products on there.

    And so........

    My new 1 Tb SSD arrived................................... yipee

    I tried to clone my existing 128GB and it couldn't see new drive .... boo hiss......!!!

    Found out that was cos I hadn't initialised it................yipeee

    Cloned Old C Drive to new SSD ....................................yipeee!!!

    Meanwhile..............................shiny new 'silver' K12CE upgrade had arrived..................mmmmnn ...yipee

    Put newly cloned drive into laptop and booted up no problems..................................yipee!!!!!!

    Ok now to put back my 750 Gb data disc and get going


    Oh...................................WTF!!!!

    Laptop can no longer see the Data HDD... boo hiss boo double hiss!!!!!!!!! GRRRR!!!!!

    Has it somehow 'broken'?????

    Re insert original 128Gb SSD and everything back to normal so no.................................

    OK try putting the new 1TB SSD in again and original 125GB SSD as second drive and that can't be seen either.............

    WTF?

    So If I boot up using my original 128Gb it can see second drive OK

    but if I boot up using new cloned 1Tb SSD it can't see any other drive neither can Disk management or Mini Tools


    Anyone got any ideas what is happening and how I might get things working???


    Please

    Pretty please.......

    Did you checked your bios settings for the hard drives? Do you see the new one? Try setting to AHCI.

    Also, check your manual for the laptops main board. Sometimes there are strange restrictions. But it should work

    When I looked in the bios I couldn't find either hard drive to be honest.
    What I am having difficulty understanding is I use the 128Gb SSD as the primary drive and other drives show up
    I use the cloned 1Tb Cloned drive as primary drive and nothing else can be seen which then makes me wonder how it could be a bios problem. Is there anything I could have accidentally done to the cloned drive to make it affect other settings?

    I really would not think that. If it is not shown in Bios, this is strange. Are you on the latest Bios-Firmware?

    It's an HP Elitebook and HP don't officially support Windows 10 (I'm on 10 pro) so I ran their support assistant to see if there's any updates . It says no and going through their website is a bit of a pain because it only really caters for Win 7 or 8 for that model

    Same here. But I purchased several waves audio products from them before and I never had a problem.

    By the way, they told me: “You purchase the license from us, then you can download your products at NI when you register your serial”

    you know, THAT is a really, really good idea.

    Can you imagine the blowback if a customer received a box with the serial number missing ?

    in fact, maybe about 10 years or more ago I was going to buy a graphics card at a futureshop, I had the guy open the box for me at the counter before the sale, his first words were "I dont know how THAT happened". But at least it wasnt my problem, hmmmm ?

    So, yeah, I think it would be a great idea to communicate with the merchant an agreement to open the box and email the serial numbers - it would help drive early sales and protect both customer and merchant.

    kudos to you, LoveEnigma for coming up with that.

    What? This is a joke? Isn't it?
    Would you tell me the exact model?
