Wowie!!

On my last PC I had a Boot-Drive option in the bios screen.. hold F10, and it let you pick a drive from the menu, and that became the current primary drive. Very handy.
Current PC doesn't, though.. shame.

Fiddle around in Bios, and see if there's anything fun to toy with.

Unfortunately, we sometimes forget it's a beta. Things like that is the reason it's still in beta.


You can boot off two drives Anthony, try finding a tutorial on dual booting XP and Vista on separate drives.

I'd find you one but I don't have the time, try this search:

I just don't understand how the hell it could do something like that. It's a sign of BAD PROGRAMMING when not even other computers on your network are safe from your shitty code.

Lest we forget the other Windows 7 problem with it eating MP3s remotely...

I'll give it to you mog that someone make a serious screw up. I'm not sure how you "accidentally" make a bug that big.


Everyone always preaches about backups though. I guess this is why. I'd be screwed if my computer died right now. Majorly screwed.

Knowing Microsoft's anti-piracy line, I'm not sure I'd automatically assume that's a bug...

@Stealth: That's what im angry about, it deleted everything out of my backups folder on my server, so it's like Oh hey guess what? F- your backups. Luckily i've restored alot of it, but still - the principle stands: what if i DIDN'T have redundant backups? then i would be S.O.L. ANGER PUT FORTH TOWARDS THEE, MICROSOFT! YOU ARE MY WHITE WHALE!

@Afr0: If they try to say some lame shit like that, i'll burn them down with the sheer fact that all of my MP3s are direct from CD rips, -MY- CDS.
