Long Live Gumby

Well, I got Gumby back up.

I was kind of scary and a bit of a pain, but I managed to figure out the recovery procedure with Retrospect to recover the whole system. The hard part was that getting past the first stage recovery, where it didn't have the drivers loaded for firewire...and there for couldn't see the OneTouch II.

And, the second stage was harder because contrary to what it implied it didn't have all the 3rd party drivers it needed to do the second stage recovery install. There were odd things related to the i815 chipset....though I suspect there were drivers for the integrated things, namely video. But, what it did load and setup was enough to run the restore...and that got me most back to before the crash.

Kind of lucky that the last backup run was only about 4 hours before the harddrive crashed.

The only foolish :crazy: thing I had done initially, was run the recovery using the same bad drive. There were a couple times during the recovery procedure where it rebooted my machine....only the reboot hung. And, afterwards...there were a few more hangs.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
