Very true, network adapter adapter drivers always have to be installed manually.
How's it working now? about 98 updates?

I know how you feel :wink:

Did the exact same thing several hours ago lol

J/w since you did a custom install what did you do about your data, did you retrieve it before hand?

Working great so far, 119 updates later.

As far as my data I kept a couple of thing but eventually said screw it and started from scratch. Kind of nice having a laptop without a bunch of shit on it I didn't really need in the first place.
