Nice weekend, Worked on Computer

I worked on my computer this weekend. Well it wasn’t much I was backing up to a external hard drive. I am going to use the drive, I backed up from, in my original Xbox. I already have a 250GB in my Xbox compared to the 8GB stock. My new drive I will be installing if all goes well is just a precaution so I won’t mess up my other already installed drive with I install DSL (Damn Small Linux) on it.

I would like to use my Xbox as a small server. I’ve been told that I will still be able to play games on it but I’m not sure so that is why I am installing another drive to test this theory out.

I also install Windows 7 RC 7100 on my brothers laptop, my old laptop he uses. When the install was complete it had some missing drivers, Video, Audio, Wireless Adapter, & Multimedia card support. The video showed up no problem it just needed to be updated. All the drivers were install but the multimedia card, windows update couldn’t find one. Windows 7 RC 1000 ran pretty good on that old computer which I purchased as my first Personal Computer (PC) back in June of 2005.

I think Windows 7 will be a great OS when it is released in October 22, this year. I ordered 4 copies when they were only selling for $49.99. Windows Home Premium Upgrade version, now they are $120 per license.

Happy Belated 20th Birthday – Sega Genesis

I know I missed the birthday of the Sega Genesis, but I didn’t realize it was so close. I am two days late. Sega Genesis debut on August 14, 1989 in North America. (wiki).

I was 2 1/2 yrs old @ it debut. At my dentist office there was a Sega Genesis in the waiting room but we didn’t have enough time to play it or some other kid was already playing it.

Well that’s it I would just like to post this to wish Sega Genesis a belated Happy 20th Birthday.

Working on Computers this weekend

Well I installed a newer processor (CPU) in my computer. It took a little time because I have to take out all my expansion cards. I took a while mostly because I had to carry the PC to my kitchen table to get it high enough to work on. If I had more room in my room I wouldn't of had too do that.

Once that was done I had to update the BIOS so it would work with the new processor. It took some time to do because I couldn't do it like I wanted, by installing a floppy drive and loading the new .ROM file for the BIOS, the application I used didn't work, it didn't see the file. Luckily, my motherboard has many options to update the BIOS. I had to create a bootable MS-DOS floppy disk and copy the program which was on my ASUS support CD, to a floppy but it was too big bigger then 1.44MB, I was thinking it wanted to have everything on one disk. But what I did was create two disks I created a MS-DOS on one, the other was the ROM flashing program, and new ROM file and it worked. I was just glad I had other options for update the BIOS.

I spent most of the night watching "Titus" and running Spinrite on some hard drives I'm going to use when I upgrade my families PC, not mine.

So I just to post the update.

Later.

P.S. I still have not used my new camcorder Canon FS100. I just haven't had time from work and working on my computers. Frankly I just don't have time with work. I tired from after work so I try to do stuff on the weekends.
