    Away for a few days

    I will be off for most of next week (yes, hospital again!), so I won't be able to post any update details. So either someone else does it, or it will be late again...

    Away for a few days

    I just came back home, and I'm feeling great! Interestingly so does my Windows 10 - as nothing was ever wrong with it... That's my only post for today; I need a bit time to clean up many neglected things.

    Away for a few days

    And just now the tool tells me that it has still been unable to run bootsect, despite me downloading the 32-bit version into the same folder as the rest of the downloads (that's what it says in the online help http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/windows-usb-dvd-download-tool). I may get discharged from the hospital before I can fix my computer...

    Away for a few days

    It's unbelievable how quickly an afternoon goes by... I have managed to download the Windows 10 installer ISO onto an external disk. The Microsoft Media Creation Tool as well. Subsequently I found that I need a number of additional things to get that thing on a USB memory stick (including a larager 8GB stick)... And just now it completed the generation of the bootable USB device. Up to phase two now - the Windows 10 repair. I have an hour, then I must go back to the hospital. Thanks for all the good wishes, and also your PM link, Irene.

    Away for a few days

    What I managed to do yesterday was to kill Windows 10 completely! When I connected my system to my LAN at home, it immediately started downloading & installing Windows Updates. That's what I expected. When it came to a restart, I went to lie down for a few minutes, and when I came back, the screen was black. Power Off/On just goes to that black screen at the end. I am trying to set up a Windows 10 repair now, but so far I have not been able to complete the Windows 10 ISO on my old XP system! Something is trying to drive me crazy...

    Away for a few days

    I apologize for disappearing like that... 10 days ago I was rushed to the hospital (I spare you the details), and a few days my computer followed. I tried for over a week to get it to connect to the hospital's Wi-Fi, but without success. Today the allowed me to go home for a few hours, to do some important tasks, including Windows Updates. But at the end I have not achieved much.... Don't know when I will be permanently back; perhaps in a week or so...
