Re: Got a Harley

Nice looking bike. I've been telling myself for years that I'll get my bike license one of these days, but still haven't. My dad has had motorcycles for as long as I can remember, and currently has a 2001 Softail that he's put a ton of mileage on over the years. Also, you don't look anything like I ...

Re: It's like Christmas morning!

I got home from work and the laptop was still at 99% done updating to Windows 10. At that point it had been there for about 18 hours, so I rebooted, ended up popping out the 250GB drive, and putting in a 320GB drive, booted from my external with the Windows 10 image, and within 10-15 minutes had a w...

Re: It's like Christmas morning!

I got Win10 installed on the desktop, using the method you suggested, problem free aside from the issue getting 7 installed first. I got the laptop wiped clean and installed 7 on it (I think it had Vista originally, but didn't even check) and ended up getting it to just download the update to 10 fro...

Re: It's like Christmas morning!

Thanks Jim, I'll give that a shot. Definitely less steps than what I had done before. Now, if only I could get Win7 to install. I'm trying to install onto my SSD from an external drive, and it keeps freezing at the Starting Windows screen. EDIT: Got Windows 7 installed. I had too much memory in the ...

Re: It's like Christmas morning!

Oh yeah, almost forgot about the laptop. I got a Dell XPS M1530 from him too. Core2 Duo 2.2GHz, 4GB RAM, 250GB HDD. He said there was something wrong with the internal video card. I've only had it on for a few minutes so far (installing Win7), but so far so good!

Re: It's like Christmas morning!

Thanks Jim. I was already looking into that, trying to figure out what to do. I guess I'll need to install Windows 7 first, then do the free upgrade to 10, and then I'm free to do a clean install of 10, right?

Re: It's like Christmas morning!

I've gotten rid of some old stuff lately too, but I'm left with some stuff that was still functional, but was either missing a video card, or not enough RAM, etc. So this will give me enough stuff to build a few computers, and hopefully get rid of whatever I don't need. I have 2 17" CRTs downst...

Re: It's like Christmas morning!

I'm taking an inventory of everything to see exactly what I have, and there is at least 14.5GB of RAM. 6.5GB of that is DDR2, 4.75GB is DDR, and most of the rest is laptop memory. I don't think I'll be short on RAM anytime soon :lol: All this is on top of the stuff I already had, and the few gigs I ...

It's like Christmas morning!

I picked up a bunch of computer, parts and accessories today. My uncle was clearing out a bunch of stuff that he's collected over the years, and whatever I didn't take was getting tossed... so, being the "collector" that I am, ended up coming home with 3 computers (P4 2.8GHz, and 2x P4 2.4...

Re: Time for a Poll on Windows 10

I've been using Window 10 so long I'm practically using Windows 11 :lol:
