Windoze

    Been getting some emails from this guy in the US regarding my installing Windows on a 240X laptop (no CD drive) so I decided to make it a page all of it’s own…I’ll add to it with links and other pages I found useful when I undertook the task. In other news, my back is still sore – nothing major wrong though, I just need to keep up the exercises and get some more physiotherapy for a while.

After sending my old one off on January 16 for a warranty repair/replacement – my replacement arrived on Saturday (the next model up though – Samsung D600 – […]
