Well.. posting from Debs dads PC at the moment.

What a disaster!!!

The new PC works fine and is amazingly fast!! The guy who built for me just put a copy of XP onto it to run benchmarks etc but hasnt been activated. So I tried to install my copy of windows and chose a clean install in which it copies files to the HD reboots and installs windows from DOS for some reason it just kept blue screening (maybe it cant see the SATA HD in DOS?) but then if thats true you cant do a clean install of windows on a SATA disk...

Anyway so I booted into DOS with a Win 98 boot disk and Fdisk'd the HD and formatted it (this was before I found out that DOS cant see SATA drives, hey I'm new to SATA) and so I bloody formatted OUR 200GB IDE drive with all our stuff on and ALL of Katherine's photos and videos on it!!

Needless to say I was devastated!! Luckily I ran a data recovery program over night and all seems to be back (although there must be some things missing/lost).

So does anyone know how to do a clean install of windows on a SATA disk??

EDIT: I see I need to hit F6 during the boot process and install 3rd party drivers for the SATA, I'll try that.

This is why there are cliches about men and instruction manuals, Angelus.  Good to know you came out relatively unscathed, at least. :D

Congrats indeed. Last I checked she couldn't even crawl. Quick learner I say.

I guess she doesnt need to know though as she's running round all over the place!

OMG that's always so cute when the little ones learn how to walk. They are usually so excited and proud and explorative.  :D

Heh, I've just found out that all the Harry Potter films, the first Star Wars film, Sleepy Hollow and most of the James Bond films were filmed in Leavesden, which is the studio I drive past basically every day. We're planning a college trip there aswell, should be pretty sweet.

And I changed my name to Jamie because I don't really like Broomie anymore. I tell my friends to stop calling me it aswell and stick to Jamie. Why? I'm just tired of it.

Changing your logon won't help, my friend; you're still stuck with the jokes concerning a specific cleaning instrument. :p

I kinda know what it's like. Even after hanging out with them in real life 24/7 for weeks on end, AGD1 and AGD2 STILL referred to me as Erpy.

You're not the first to wonder or to ask.

And I don't think anyone around here knows for sure (or, if they do, they're respecting TK's right to privacy).

His only appearance in the last year was a brief one after I baited him with the Hundred Yard War (Ohio State vs. Michigan) in this thread (page 2, more than halfway down).

And now that you've reminded me, Spikey...Blackthorne!  Where's my money? :lol
