A New Day!
Up until 2am. Awake at 6. On the computer at 8.
So I’m working on an abused computer from a restaurant. It has reported for its Windows 2000 operating system “registry cannot load the hive file” (computers get hives?!) This registry corruption repair knowledge base article leads me to the Windows 2000 Registry Repair Utility which in turn leads me to Windows XP Professional Utility: Setup Disks for Floppy Boot Install (that uses six floppies…I didn’t even know I still had working floppy disks!).
So I get the disks made and turn to the computer to see…no floppy drive! (It was just well disguised)
