The computer Gods aren’t happy

Ironically my main Tablet PC died on the way down to Silicon Valley two days ago. Just won't boot. I have a spiffy new Lenovo model now running Windows Vista and Office 2007. But, I just spent 20 minutes typing up a blog post and IE 7 bombed on me, restarted, and lost my post. So, now I'm typing in Firefox. We'll see how that goes. Eating the dogfood of unreleased software isn't fun sometimes. Anyway, lots of things are happening, so let's see how many posts we can get done before the computer Gods decide they've had enough. Heheh.

  1. How to use the Recovery Console from the Microsft website
    You can enable and disable services, format drives, read and write data on a local drive (including drives that are formatted to use the NTFS file system), and perform many other administrative tasks. The Recovery Console is particularly useful if you have to repair your computer by copying a file from a disk or CD-ROM to your hard disk, or if you have to reconfigure a service that is preventing your computer from starting correctly.

    If you cannot start your computer, you can run the Recovery Console from the Microsoft Windows XP startup disks or the Windows XP CD-ROM. This article describes how to perform this task.

    After Windows XP is installed on your computer, to start the computer and use the Recovery Console you require the Windows XP startup disks or the Windows XP CD-ROM.
