I suggest changing this to include or from a System Repair Disc.

Looking good. A small technicality is that a CD/DVD disc is spelled Disc as opposed to Disk. The word Disk being used to refer to such things as a hard drive and disc being used to refer to such things as a CD/DVD or those round things one uses when plowing up the fields. That one comes from Arthur A Collins who was unhappy when some of his engineers spelled disk as disc. He pointed out to them that disc was used when plowing. Ah, the good ol' days of Collins Radio.

Has anyone had an opportunity to, by relying only upon the tutorial, to test drive the tutorial? Better that one of us goes first.

Ah yes,
now I remember what I was forgetting to mention, namely, some statement to the effect to use the drive letter of their system partition which could possibly be a drive letter other than C.
