So after I wrote in another post about taking some days off, I went to do a job installing a fan at a customer's home. So I switch off my LINUX computer and my WINDOWS one, went did the job and got home just before 1 o'clock. After finishing cooking around 3 o'clock I finally sat down expecting to watch a movie or two, before I did any research, when my WINDOWS machine would not boot. Not a boot screen, nothing. And this is a machine I had built a week ago after my previous failed as well.

Of course my LINUX machine is up and running but now once AGAIN I have to build ANOTHER machine and re-install WINDOWS all over again. AM i just unlucky or is some kind of prominence trying to tell me something? At some time later in the month I was planning to setup a HACKINTOSH to add to my network and see if I could be able to install ENIGMA on it but now I have to use any available parts I have to set back up a Windows machine first.........or do I?

Actually I using my LINUX machine for now so after I've gotten some sleep, I think I'll try building a HACKINTOSH first. I also think I have a another motherboard around somewhere that I can install Windows 7 on. Tomorrow I start on that and relay back how i do. In fact now that I think more on it, I'm gonna try it and see if I can help out TKG with a request of his.

Wish me luck.

OK. So I started to build to gather parts for my HACKINTOSH project. My goal is to build a MAC environment so I could test ENIGMA on it. I have the case some memory, and some IDE hard drives. Now I have to get a motherboard and we should able to build.

Incidently all of my SATA drives are fried....even my Backup ones. For some reason they would not spin up. This included my Windows boot drive which I took from WINDOWS computer working. I had to place my Backup LINUX boot drive into the WINDOWS computer and would you believe it, it booted up and worked perfectly. I didn't have to reformat it or install anew.

The thing is I had installed it from a different computer and yet here it is running without any problems. One more + :clap: and a big  (Y) for LINUX. Take that MICROSOFT  :barf: :dogout: .

Sadly though, I'm going have to at some time build a WINDOWS machine but for now I'm concentration on producing for LINUX.
