After a quick conversation with my dad, learning that we had all the discs, I elected to try booting into the Gateway Recovery CD, that other disc the installer rejected. It seems to be working so far; the screen says “Restore in progress…” I only wish I had discovered the Recovery disc before wiping the system… Update in about 30 minutes, when the wizard completes the recovery operation.


I am an avid technology and software user, in addition to being reasonably well-versed in CSS, JavaScript, HTML, PHP, Python, and (though it still scares me) Perl. Aside from my technological tendencies, I am also a theatre technician, sound designer, violinist, singer, and actor.
