Okay. I hate Windows. I hate it with a passion, especially now that Vista is coming out. My desktop is having issues (think it’s a memory problem).
On Thursday evening I was trying to get my desktop to behave. I had a book layout due on Friday and desperately needed to get some work done. Hoover did not want to. I updated some drivers and windows and rebooted… machine wouldn’t get past the btkernel.sys file. Maybe that file was the issue? So I attempted to reboot to safe mode. Locked up at the same place. Restore to last known configuration didn’t work either. Even the Windows installatin CD hung and couldn’t do anything.
A friend reminded me about Linux Live CD. Maybe this would work and get around Windows-related issues (or what I thought were Windows issues). I’ve downloaded the Mutagenix vesion of Linux live. Hopefully the ISO image will burn successffully on the portable (which has also been having major issues).
