Today I get a spiffy 320GB Deskstar HDD for my Mac Pro, with the intention of taking the original Seagate it came with and put it on my Vista PC, so all goes well until I remove my old Western Digital HDD (which had an old xp install there but I removed that eons ago) and boom, my PC becomes unbootable, after dancing with the settings all afternoon I ended up installing Vista on the new Seagate and recovering my old Vista install from there (which I am using right now and is intact) but my XP install can't be recovered so now I have two Vista installs and an unbootable XP install I hate Windows, I remove a drive in which there was no system at all in any partitions and bam, I can't boot anything. Why can't Microsoft just start developing a new platform (maybe UNIX as well?)? Abandon NT and legacy support altogether and pull an OSX like Apple did while maintaining a development line on NT to smooth the transition. Stuff like these really irk me. Just needed to vent, hopefully Vista won't have this kind of stupid boot management options and when Vienna comes out there won't be any archaic command line interfaces to deal with... On the brightside I still have my Vista installs and I didn't lose any data... maybe I can just reinstall XP from there and use it as a games exclusive OS (and migrate to Vista entirely once and for all). I've never had to deal with this with Macs, thank god Apple designs stuff with a ease of use philosophy, I'll scream if I have to deal with a command line interface again.
