Well, it was bound to happen. When you have one computer thats senial and one thats obsesive compulsive, odds are you’ll have to reinstall an operating system eventually. The new system, having originally contained a not-so-legal copy of XP Pro, and then a installed-over legit version, is starting to act “odd.” There’s also some basic problems with confusion. The operating system seems to have become confused as to what it likes to on a regular basic. Crashing and not being able to contact Windows Update seems to have taken preference to working correctly. So… a few keystrokes from now, I’ll be blowing a hard drive away. Then inserting a nice bootdisk followed by a Windows CD and from there we cross our fingers. Wish me luck.
