Damn you, Windows 7 RC, Damn You!! June 8, 2009Posted by tumaix in planetkde-tomazcanabrava.
So, Aparrently windows rc is going to be the best windows since …. , well, the best windows version ever, ( don’t know how much that counts, but… ). The hype as on , the wind was changing and the teachers on the university where praising how great microsoft was for the I’msorryforvista version.
Then I got an idea… What if I could install windows side by side with my linux box, and try both, write about the good things, rant about the bad things?
So I borrowed a Win 7 – 64bits version and created a Key on microsoft site ( a new promotion, or so I was told ), cleaned space, and used gparted to create an empty space for my installation. reserved 60gb for win 7.
turned off my linux box, inserted the dvd on the drive. turned the machine on.
oh, cool, it booted. now I just need to format that partition ( click on the 60gb unformatted space ), click on ‘format’, finished formatting, clicked on ‘install’.
“Windows could not be installed on the selected partition, check install log for details”, there wasn’t a install log to check, but that was just the beginning.
I removed the DVD and rebooted, with tears in my eyes and looking after the sunset, trying to get linux up to search for that error on the web.
Grub error 22.
WTF! LOL! WYSIWYG! WINE! GNU! RTFM! and other badwords in acrony.
I was sad, I was desperate. I was, well, sleepy, it was late.
runned for a live cd , found a kubuntu 8.10, booted, ‘fdisk’
Holy Shét, it destroyed my /data/ partition with almost 5.000 songs, *ALL* my university work, my talk for fisl, My homework for Sandro Andrade(mayIgiveittoyouanotherday, prettypleas?!?! ).
Since I didn’t had a linux 64bits at the time, and I already lost my things, I tougth, ‘bleh… gonna install this anyway to see what’s all about’, so, again, installed, formatted the /linux partition ( I already lost my data anyways ),
so, there I was, happly installing my dev tools when suddenly BSOD! a Blue Screen! in less than 2 hours of use! AAAAAAAARGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH! * thorws rotten apples at myself" *
Now I’m downloading mandriva 2009.1 spring to regain my honor.
and yeah, I didn’t had backup.
