Main PC Dead - Reserve Laptop

Posted by Stelgim Longday on March 2, 2011 at 7:11 AM

When I was trying to reinstall (doing a clean install) on my Hard drive nr.1, 1-2 hours into the install and it was almost complete - the power went down. Reason?: Power Company had an error and had to take down the power to repair I guess. Second attempt, now that the first Hard drive is ruined at "Repeated 'Failed Installation, please restart' " and it goes in an endless loop, I tried myself on my reserve Hard drive, exactly the same kind of Hard drive that I couldn't get to work at the same time as my other.

Guess what, they put down the power again, this time 2 hours earlier and this one lasted only for 30 minutes.. but bad enough for the second to fail, well I did get far enough to write the CD-Key on the second one, but the CD-Key didn't work anymore, probably cause it's an upgrade one and I need to have the old Windows XP files on the Hard drive I'm installing it on.. which is on the first Hard drive.

I was so pissed that I sent a message to them, explaining my feelings on this case. They said they were sorry for the inconvenience that I had to go through and said "They could write about what happened so that I might get a free Software from the store I got it from". Not sure how that'll work, since I dont know if they mean the Hard drives, or the Win7 Install software I failed to, well, install.

That's my rant for the week, currently writing on an old laptop that turns off everytime it overheats too much.
