A note to myself

May 1, 2008

Why this note? It turns out that my wife’s laptop, a cheapie no-name, has a dying intallation of WindowsXP and it turns out that the CD/DVD drive crapped out about 6 months ago. It’s time to do a reinstall of Windows and this is how I’ll try doing it.

Why am I posting it here? Because I am in Ubuntu and will have to boot back to Windows to make this work. Sadly I say this booting thing because happily I have not booted into Windows in at least 6 months on this machine. Oh well, sometimes one has to make sacrifices. And I don’t want to loose the link.
