What's the bastard fooking point in having a restore manager on a machine that needs the actual build specific OEM disk when they shove it onto a partition instead.

Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.

I may be out of guarantee but I can predict a rather surly email winging its way to Compaq/HP imminently.  cussing:

Raspberry Pi are only available from 2 suppliers due to licensing arrangements. Amazon are not able to supply.
Raspberry PIs are on order here ~ for small boys who wish to learn "programming". Delivery times are lengthy at the moment.



Oh and it doesn't just end with the delivery ... there are all sorts of downloads to make it work ~ which will no doubt increase the price considerably by the time they've finished.

Gubbed!  lol:

Give the man a coconut, Banghead Did some more research on the OEM disks and they appear to be build specific so unless my email to Compaq/HP bears fruit (about as much chance of that as there is of BM setting up a slate for us all I suspect  whistle: ) I'm seeing if any of the guys I know still have XP MCE  disks anywhere.

And before anyone says anything I was nice and police in my message to them (don't look so surprised you cheeky sods  lol: )
