Sometimes I wonder if you on purpose try to make everyone hate you.
But this time it wasn't actually my fault, short version is I took it to the guy I was talking about and that was one of the first things I asked him and he said, "no no, I know what the problem is, it's just had you come to me sooner I would've been able to salvage your files."
The whole reason why I made this thread was I was told to reinstall windows 7 cause he couldn't even fix it, but couldn't find the keygen anywhere and after going through almost all my stuff I went fuck it; only to find it later on by complete accident.
I'm not trying to be mean here but the problem is you
. We've all read your posts. You're trying to do reasonably advanced stuff with your operating systems when you don't have the skills to do these things, when it's pointed out you respond with lines like 'I'm not IT'. It's okay, it's cool, you're 'Not IT', now just stop trying to do shit that IT guys do as well. You're also running Linux when you can't use it very well and have no real NEED to be running Linux. You're tossing Windows around to different drives by copying the partitions and finding out Windows doesn't like that.
Just get your new hardware, build the box, install Windows 7 using your ligit key, install your drivers and then, and this is important, stop fucking with it
. It's done, the computer is setup, shut up and write your essays, Google shit, post on Facebook and play Team Fortress 2.
Honestly, I have Windows 7 Home Basic running on an Athlon 64 3200+ (Circa 2004) with a Radeon HD 4650 (Circa 2008 ) and a SoundBlaster Audigy I (Crica 2001). Hell, the SATA controller on the mobo is so crappy, it can't auto-negotiate with SATAII and SATAIII drives, so those drives REQUIRE a jumper to force the drive to SATAI mode or it'll not even work with that controller.. BUT WINDOWS 7 WORKS FINE ON IT. Yes, there were EVEN drivers for that Audigy!
So really, get it running and stop trying to do shit that you can't do and everything will be super.
