    I think microsoft has decided it would like to publish mainline windows (so excluding 2000 and NT) in an every other pattern since about 1998....

    GOOD- 98
    BAD - ME
    GOOD- XP
    BAD - Vista
    GOOD- 7
    therefore, it follows that:
    BAD- 8

    I haven't used windows in a while nor have I kept up with the os news, but I assume you guys are using the beta version? I did a quick search on wikipedia and it says the release date is set for October 2012, why not just keep using windows 7 until they fix some of the bugs?


    NO! My nephew, 13 at the time, has broken windows and expensive pots playing in the backyard; I can only imagine what a six year old can innocently do.

    I <3 you too, jerkface. :inlove:


    Um, that's why they pays you mang.


    Metro mode? Will google.


    Yep, I realize this. More explanationing below.


    BECAUSE and it's a long story but I'll pare it back. I have a drive that went bad and need to recover data, and I have this 64-bit monster that used to house the drive...so I brought the monster and a new drive to the office, along with the box that has all the product discs in it...except the Win7 DVD. (fuckstockings!) So I check the interwebs to see if I have any options at all, and PRESTO Win 8 beta (FREE!). All I really need to do is load up Win 8 (done), add my drive recovery utility (done, funny story about that too but another time) and now, I just have to bring it back home, plug in the bad drive, and see what sorts out.

    If you have the product key, you can download the win7 installers straight from microsoft's website.

    You can either burn a CD or use the tool that they provide to put it on a USB stick or SD card.

    edit: actually for your purposes you don't even need the product key... Just run the installer, hit escape when it asks for the CD key, and then it will give you 30 days of use before it forces you to activate.

    I hate people who ride the grocery store carts by leaning on them as they push it.

    neo has women in his life. I do not appreciate you showing him affection when there are others, like myself, who have women troubles. :plain:


    ...does your company have an IT department? Get them to do the work so you can allocate your time to more important things, like the forum...uuhhhh I meant work. :)


    whats wrong with that? :embar:

    I actually have to plan my grocery shopping so I don't go in busy times. I have panic attacks in crowded shops with tons of people pushing trolleys around mindlessly trying to kill me.

      the best time for shopping at the grocery store is staying at home watching movies, while your wife takes care of it.

    I couldn't find the Win7 installer, but I was able to burn Win8 to DVD and run with that. Although, even that was a bit of WTF MSFT? Plus it gives me the out that I'm scoping out the new technology.


    Mee too. :inlove:


    We outsource it and it's been both blessing and headache. But as to your first point, :inlove: at you tambien. We all have women troubles.

    The silver lining is that I bought recovery software online back in 2005, and I still have the key and it's good in perpetuity, so I can use the latest version. WIN!
