It's nice when things come together of their own accord. I gave the machine another reboot and found access had spontaneously been granted.

Merry Christmas indeed!

Drivers! How could I not have thought of it.

You got the wrong idea. I feel like there is some sort of communication barrier between us, as we keep misunderstanding each other.

I'm sorry that I have upset you, and will try not to take up much more of your time. Once W7 is back with settings & programs, it should be comparatively simple to complete the original goal.

My understanding, then, is that I should just wipe the hard drive entirely? Or is that not a function of a Quick Wipe? "Leaving space for XP", at least, implies a full wipe.

Alright, I will try it in the morning. ImgBurn seems to be running in Wine, will have to judge how it burns. I recall that the Linux software burned the image in question at 3.5-4.7x, though this was...
