I was going to write something completely different today but I needed to vent. My computer has been running slow lately so I decided to do a clean install. This has put me in a shitty mood. I backed up everything I needed on a hard drive and reinstalled. No problems, Windows XP Pro installs fine. I have a shitty USB wireless card and the drivers for it I backed up. Well, this hard drive is a 300 gig SATA that XP doesn’t install the drivers for by default. As I have no Internet I can’t go online and download them for my mobo from Asus.
I end up finally getting the SATA drivers installed (don’t ask me how, it was an hour long process). I start installing programs that I use and guess what? I need to download Service Pack 2. Windows Update doesn’t start the download, I do it manually. Installed it, reboot. Install the applications I need and they want me to reboot.
Right now I am downloading Windows Updates… I picked and chose the ones I felt I needed and there were 95 updates . Currently I am on update 8 of 95 and ready to smash this computer like it was Reginald Denny.
