Samsung SSDs really need to be compatible with Windows 10

Or they need a disclaimer on the website/packaging that says something along the lines of 'not all software associated with this device is compatible with Windows 10'.

I can't even migrate OS to my new 850 Pro 256GB SSD, and I just noticed that my 850 Pro 128GB SSD no longer has Rapid Mode Enabled.

Sounds compatible. Just a feature missing.

If it was incompatible, Windows 10 would not install or run?

My system originally ran off a Partition on my Toshiba HDD. When I built my new PC, I used the same HDD with the plan of migrating the OS to an 850 Pro 256GB SSD and using my pre-existing 128GB 850 Pro SSD for games and intensive programs. Until Samsung updates Magician and their Migration Software to support Windows 10, I'm stuck running my OS off my HDD.

I used Apricom's software to migrate a 10 to SSD. Why would I wait for Samsung?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
