    Hi tinker, gratz for your website!! Awsome stuff in here.
    I got a question if the HDD does not start at all, wouldn’t be better to use acronis true image to copy all the stuff in a hdd to another?

    I have learned a lot with them… =)

    Oh my god! This would’ve been helpful about 3 weeks ago BEFORE my hard drive crashed, just got my laptop back yesterday and they replaced my hard drive. :( Thanks for the tip though :)

    My first time to vist your home pick your tutoirals over everybody elses when your in the results! Your slow way of just the basic facts is what realy makes things click for me You must be from the south? Im a beginner and leaving out all the TEC language really helps! You put things in a command man simple terms kind of way I dont know how to put but you would? Anyway what brought me finnaly to your home was your lesson on creating an os.Like i said im green ive had my first pc for 2 yrs now sorry my second i keep giving my first one viruises on purpose so i could learn how to fix it learned alot that way! And alot of times it was you and the birent guy tutiorals that helped me learn! But back to my question and this is my first time asking for help i even think im in the wrong spot but i know your fans here will see it gets to you? MAKING AN OS? What got me was you finnaly explaned the boot process from bootloader (bootstrap) to loading the system files.Ive allways got BOTTLOADER MISSING? NTLR?MISSING error atfter error on why my pc cant load the damn windows os?I can see it in the PE the partion is right there like it allways is? what changed? If I could dlb click the partition I would I think I have a few times Could you take it step by step from power on to that nice three notes Windows makes when it makes to the desktop? I mean every little thing the bios does and what the pc looks for and if this process can change for any and every reason something could go wrong? This would help me alot on learning how for some reason (i mean alot of reasons) the OS CANT LOAD!!!!! Break it down for us and dont leave anything out!!!
