Not really a 'fuck this shit' event as much as an exercise in my own stupidity and frustration. So I got home from work and went to install my shiney new 1TB lappie hard drive. Simple, right? I mean, Windows has all that stuff there for you. All you need to do is back up a system image then restore from a repai...oh. I don't have a repair disc.

 

No biggie, I'll just run over to the store real quick and grab a cd because Windows 7 cannot into USB. Sit around for two hours waiting for the system image to be finished, cuz I've got tons of crap on there. Alright, remove old drive & reboot...

 

The fuck do you mean you can't find a disk to recreate a volume?

 

I mess around in BIOS, changing the controller to IDE from AHCI, to no avail. I slowly realize that Windows has decided that since the new hdd is formatted it is sacred and cannot be touched in any way. Great. Hey, let's go into Windows Install and then just make a new partition big enough for the restore, that'll work!

 

Let's just press this little Format button...oh, it might destroy all the things? That's okay, I don't want to delete everything, just the -

 

:huh: wait, why is it reading 934/934 gigs now?

 

Oh SHIT.

 

Alright, alright, no worries, we can just make another one and unformat the drive in the process. Patience is a virtue. So I pop my old drive in again and gesswat? WINDOWS HAS FAILED TO START. WOULD YOU LIKE TO ATTEMPT STARTUP REPAIR?

 

Fuck me. Fuck me so hard. So I start it, and sit around twiddling my thumbs for about 80 goddamn minutes. I kid you not, it 'attempts repairs' the whole way through until I realize something. What if it's because of the hard drive slot? Maybe it's all confused, I know the setup was. So I restart, and wait two hours this time around. Staring at that goddamn progress bar go through the motions was fun.

 

But then it dawns on me. MAYBE IT'S BECAUSE MY DUMBASS SELF CHANGED THE CONTROLLER SETTINGS!?

 

Walla. Here we are, four hours later, back at square one.

 

...I am so glad Sunday is a dick-around day. God bless weekends.

Yeah, pretty dumb imo.

 

Though I guess I just did accidentally delete everything on the drive, so maybe not in a position to judge :P

The school's remote desktop server is so shitty, even the school website itself says it's shit.

Excuse me while I enter my hard to remember username because the school made us switch to this "StarID" bullshit, because a first and last name with a strong password wasn't good enough.
