I swear I will never purchase a product that feels the need to put up the same ad twice every frickin commercial break.

I don't know what it is like on a tablet, but on my new desktop, it is TERRIBLE!

I know if it weren't Windows 8, it would be some other advertisement--I get it. But I wonder if the advertising execs ever realize that there are a few of us that have a negative reaction to overexposure.

Soon there will be no more "the power of a desktop" PC! As all will resemble smart phones/tablets... which for a PC is a dumbing down of the computer. It's all about control, and PC's put to much "power" in the hands of citizens.

Ads ads ads, and force feeding you the content they want, the NEW TV!

Take the time to QUIT using Windows 8 and show other people alternatives... I rarely succeed with switching others though, hehe.

Ive been using Ubuntu Linux...easy to use, makes your PC as smooth as a mac and considerably more stable.

Down with Microsoft!

The world without Windows and Internet Explorer would be a better place.

The job requires me to use Windoze--but I use as much opensource software as I can. Web browser is Firefox, etc...

I use a Linux variant called PinguyOS, as I felt Ubuntu was becoming to "commercialized" by Canonical. Sort of like a "Windows creep" happening, but I haven't tried anything lately. Cool to see other breaking away though for sure...

You sound like one of those hipsters who boycott their favourite bands once they become successful laughing

Windows 8 ain't bad, definitely a step forward design wise. However if I didn't need software such as the Adobe programs I would probably be running something with the new GNOME package, it's beautiful!

Don't know about you guys but the freakin' mycleanpc ads are the ones that do my nut in pinch

MAC OSX all the way. For mainstream OS's, it isn't even close anymore.

No need to insult techno my friend. the music you are looking for is called dubstep.

yea ive been reading on various forums that all the nerds are anti ubuntu for those reasons alone, being that they're partnered up with amazon and whatnot..personally..i dont have time to fuck around with an OS and write scripts and Ubuntu is like running a free version of OSX on your windows machine..im actually using Xubuntu which is a slightly more "windows" like GUI of ubuntu but its the same shit. it can only be truly called a windowscreep when it starts crashing for no reason..which is exactly what the latest version of ubuntu (13.04) does..went back to an older version and it runs awesome!

If i was running a server or something id prob use Redhat like the rest of the internet but for web browsing/trolling and emailing/spreadsheet type work im pretty happy with ubuntu.

I have two partitions, one with windows for work, an other one with linux mandriva for surfing and stuff. Mandriva works pretty good.

Sorry, not mandriva, I meant Linux MINT

So basically you have an ISO file - HP Restore Disc I assume going on a HP comp (Drivers/Factory Software/Windows OS/Ect..)?
When you insert the disc and try to boot to it all you get is a blinking cursor?
Sorta like a black DOS screen with the cursor up in the left corner?

Just a guess...
Let me ask you this... are you able to boot to DOS at all and run DOS commands?
Maybe DOS isnt installed - if not?
Perhaps you need to run a newer DOS Boot disc first and instal DOS.
Then try to instal the factory OS Disc.

My second guess would be - drivers to the CD or Disc player arent installed.
Meaning it's not plug & play and when someone wiped the HD - it wiped everything.
It's not reading the disc / disc drive possibly.
Are you able to get to a hardware settings screen and see it if it recognizes the disc player / drive?

Third guess would be a bad restore disc.
Maybe scratched or dirty or just corrupted.

Ahh I see - so you made your own image file - basically your own restore disc with 'UPDATED' files.
And now it wont work on the HP's you want to put it / instal it on.

HUh,Not sure....
Does HP put security shit in place to try to prevent people from doing this?

Whats F11 do during start up?
You get anything or does it go back to the cursor screen again?

That sucks.

Do you get the factory default HP screens that come up like before an OS would boot or just that dam cursor?
Sometimes like you mentioned about a bad hard drive - they'll do that also with the cursor I have a dell that
the HD went bad in a couple times and it did that each time.

The reason I ask is...
If you are getting the factory screen then more then likely you should be able to access some HP factory tools.
There should be some sorta tool to check the drives for errors to tell if they're good or bad.
You can look up the error codes online.
Other then that I don't know.
If it's going past the factory screen and then when it gets to a drive it errors - the drive might be fucked.

People like different types of 'music'. Some like electronic, some like jazz, and some like rock.........etc......

If you can't wrap your head around that, then i'm sorry for you.
