got an hp notebook running win 7 64 bit. first, unit was a display purchased from walmart had already been set up and tweeked by several other people and its been a lengthy process reverting everything to my needs, particularly when it comes to not being able to access numerous files with a message saying i dont have permission. EXCUSE ME!!!!! oh hell no. last time i checked, i own this *^$#%@^$ thing. WHEN will there be a system that isnt going to do something unless i tell it too? Do the people who design this stuff actually use computers the way the general public usually does? I bet not, they re too busy trying to design then come up with fixes for the design causing everyone to shell out mass amounts of money. kind of like how when someone works at a doughnut shop they can never eat another doughnut again. well i bet its the same for software designers. cant even think about a computer when you get home can you? thus the reason your operating systems continue to take years off of peoples lives. i got news for you, xp was your best attempt still. anyway, i was re assigning permissions and taking OWNERSHIP of some files when a would be spy proceeded to shut down my comp the hard way and guess what? no ive got the dreaded black screen wont boot ,no safe, no command, no last known, no nuthin! and of course the last file to load is atipcie.sys. wonderful. by HIS grace the comp will boot from my external dvd usb drive and i am currently without a copy of my bought and paid for operating system. Yea thats a great idea not giving people oem disks anymore. hummm not only are you saving on material, think of all the other people with problems that were not furnished with boot and recovery disks who couldn or didnt know about the extra partition. there are people out there still playing solitaire that have no clue, all that extra money being spent trying to fix. so if anyone has anything to add please do. i think linnux or mac may be in the near future, sorry Bill. business, you know how it is.
