Yes I'm using an ssd. Apparently there is something wrong with my buildafter swapping motherboards. I originally had an msi z87 pc mate which was working fine with windows 10 before i upgraded to the asus. Now I'm getting freezes in windows. Still figuring it out.....
do one thing give a fresh install on other ssd n check the result
if it still freeze random
change motherboard.
i am on z97-a all works fine
as earlier mentioned sometime in mac bottom shortcuts dosnt appear
but its automatically get fixed when i restart.

Still testing on my win10 dual boot, as I'm more familiar with windows. Uninstalled latest nvidia driver, using default win10 driver and so far it has not froze. As for Sierra, I was able to use it for 5 hours before it froze while using photoshop (I'm thinking video driver as well). Maybe I'll try using nvidia driver for mac instead of the mac driver. This is actually my second install of Sierra but on the same ssd, with same freezing problem.
Update: No more freeze after using Nvidia web driver for my 650ti.

Hello,

Can you explain a little bit more? I also have a Z97-A motherboard with a geforce 750 Ti. What guide did you follow for installation?

I have problems with 3D and audio, and depending what I do in post installation the screen goes black after boot, not sure why.
