Is currently also a pain in the ass. I don’t know why I do things like updating multiple operating systems at once or reformatting a computer right before an important programming assignment is due – it just leads to much heart burn and late nights. This time, I had long ago downloaded the Windows 7 RC (legitimately with my own serial) and left it sitting on my desktop (that I rarely use.) A couple weekends ago I finally got around to burning the ISO and then left that DVD sitting around until I picked it up recently and tried to install it to my computer.
I have come to realize that this isn’t the first time my DVD drive has written bad media. Again, I must be a masochist because I seem to do stupid things like this all the time.
If someone has a suggestion for a new DVD drive please feel free to whack me over the head because I really shouldn’t do this again.
Stay tuned for a real entry on my experience with Windows 7 instead of my misadventures in trying to sabotage myself.
