Good morning!

I know the sun rose this morning because I have faith in He who holds all things together. Somewhere, there was a sunrise display in the heavens this morning, but not here. Our sky is dark and cloudy with little drops of rain falling occasionally.

Well, I'm off the see how my LJ friends are doing. I hope everyone has a great day. It's hump day (Wednesday) and it's all down hill from here!

    awake, well almost!

I love it when a plan comes together...

ogre tells me I can uninstall the service pack 2 that I recently installed, using the F8 option. Hopefully that will also replace my ntoskrnl.exe file which appears to be missing or damaged.

If that fails to work, I may carefully use fdisk /mbr and sys c: to make my install cd think I don't have NT and build a repair copy of the OS in another partition.

The price...

Someone on my friend's list put this up and I thought it was worth repeating.

A Good Sermon

There once was a man named George Thomas, a pastor in
a small New England town. One Easter Sunday morning
he came to the Church carrying a rusty, bent, old bird
cage, and set it by the pulpit.

I will make emergency rescue disks! I will make emergency rescue disks! I will make emergency rescue disks! I will make emergency rescue disks! I will make emergency rescue disks! I will make emergency rescue disks! I will make emergency rescue disks! I will make emergency rescue disks! I will make emergency rescue disks!...

Just as soon as I get my windows 2000 back. I promise.

So far, my rescue attempts are in vain. There is one last thing to try.

I have run fdisk /mbr and sys c: on my hard drive. Now, once I remove a few files, I hope all evidence of windows 2000 will be gone and I can use my windows 2000 cd.

This is...interesting.

Windows 2000 will not read my D drive. All it wants to do is format it! Windows 98, however, knows that something is not quite right with the partition, but the data can be read and programs even run on it. All I can figure is that 2000 is more choosie about what it works with, whereas 98 uses a quick and dirty solution.

In any case, this allowed me to save most of my data from the partition and I have a clean install of 2000 on another partition. Now I can let 2000 format the drive and see if it is recoverable. *sigh*

And they couldn't put humpy dumpty together again...

I've got my computer almost back together. I had to format drive D where my windows 2000 was. I lost very little data and it turns out an emergency repair disk would not have helped me. I do need to get together a better backup plan!

Anyway, I'm headed to bed. Everyone sleep well and I'll catch up to you all tomorrow.
