Got a big TC scare when switching on at work today
« on: October 11, 2009, 05:13:33 PM »
Got to work, switched my laptop on and while it booted into WinXP I busied myself with other tasks. Imagine my shock when turning to my laptop to find that tinycore had booted up instead of WinXP!

wtf...?  ??? I don't remember installing TC on my work PC...? Worse, my resque stuff was all at home so how the heck was I going to rewrite the bootsector with Windows stuff? And I wonder what happened to all the other disc data such as email?

I was just about to get some extensions to find out what was going on on the hard disk when I remembered - there is a TC CD in the drive and I had it set to boot from CD! Phew!
