Something went VERY VERY VERY wrong with my Windows XP installation late last night. It got to where it wouldn’t reboot completely, even in safe mode.
Fortunately, I still have a hard drive that has Windows Vista Premium on it so it was a simple matter of swapping out drives and I was immediately back up and running. After all of the updates from Microsoft over the past several months I must say Windows Vista does seem to be working quite well now.
Once I retrieve the data off the corrupted XP drive I’ll likely wipe it once again and reinstall for the fourth time the Windows XP Media Center it came with. I’ll make sure I can do that when I have time and bandwidth to download the scores of updates from Microsoft.
Now that I think about it, most of my Windows installations over the years have ended with having to reinstall.
