  • Zephyr Mad! Zephyr Smash!

    Yeah well if you havent noticed I kinda vanished mysteriously without much warning for 2 weeks or so...or you didnt notice cause you hate me.

    Anyway just to amuse you let me tell you what my good computer is doing (I'm on my pimped out old 286). I tried to boot it up in safe mode one day and it gave me the blue screen of death. So I tried to boot it up on "last good settings that worked"...it gave me the blue screen of death. I tried with normal settings...it gave me the blue screen of death. I tried safe mode again...it gave me the blue screen of death. I called Dell XPS tech support (non-Indians, actually based in Memphis...Wyz?) they said "uhhhhhhhhhh....what?".

    So yeah I got this old machine working to spam the forums...oh yeah and uh...pay bills and stuff...yeah. Anyway you wont be seeing much of me till I can figure out what to do with the endless bluescreens and the inability to backup my work. I will never boot into safe mode again...

    What I usually do in such situations is throw in a second HDD with windows as the master (I have an old 2Gig that only serves this purpose) and use that to do file backups/formats/whatever I decide is necissary.

        Yeah, it is a benefit from keeping the old stuff from previous upgrades. Not much I can think of to do in your specific case, as it sounds like somehow the windows install became corrupted in some way. I'm not much of a software guy :\

                  Heh. your resultant GB isn't even equal to my in use HDD. (160gb)

                  That's pretty sad, because I payed less than $100 for it. But, as far as raiding goes, the hardest part to figure out is your mobo's drivers for it, so if you can get that settled it's generally a snap.

                    Zeph-Craigslist is your friend. I'm sure someone must have something more up to date cheap there.

                        can't argue with free, but I require atleast 100GB as temp storage for anime that I need to burn to DVD. 20-40GB HDD's just don't cut it =P
