Adventures in Gnome 3 part 2: The Wifening

Filed under
Software

My wife has a Dell laptop that normally runs Windows 7 on it. I don't push or whine about that, it's her machine and she can run whatever she wants. I very very rarely have to do tech support on it, which is a good thing because at this point all of my Windows skills are gone. However, a minor catastrophe recently caused her hard drive to go bad (she dropped it), and Windows would constantly warn her, then BSOD, then the machine wouldn't even boot and the BIOS would say it couldn't find the internal hard drive. In short: it was totally screwed.

It would stay up long enough to transfer some files off and then crash. I had a spare hard drive from an old machine, so I told her I'd swap them out and reinstall Windows 7 from the factory disk. Except after a long time searching, she couldn't find the factory disk. So... LINUX.

I put the old drive in the machine and turned it on.

rest here
