One out of Three: The Weekend Upgrade

Well, I did part of the planned weekend upgrade.

I upgraded the system disk in my 'lhaven' server from the old 5400RPM 80GB drive to the new Maxtor 7Y250P0 (7200RPM 250GB/8MB drive). The only complication was getting it to boot from the disk. I had some bootable CDs, but to do the data migration...I had put the 7Y250P0 in the spot of the CDROM drive. So, I did the copy first and tried to copy the boot loader at the same time, but it wouldn't take. So, used one of the CDs to boot and then do it right.

Not sure when I'll get the other drives, but these should go smoother since they are data only.

Guess I'll watch the boards for cheap 250GB or 300GB drives. Ideally, again, no complicated rebates required.

Meanwhile, I mailed back the other drives and wait for the refund to happen. I wonder if refund will go into my PayPal account, or will they go all the way back to my MasterCard. Where the refund lands kind of affects how I'll spend it &#59;D

No feedback yet

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.
