    OJTheAviator got a reaction from TheGrandMaster in Reinstalling Windows, keeping data (boot loop)   
    Well, having got everything going again, I'm glad I didn't make a backup of the other three drives then and there. I've got several terabytes of data across the three drives, and since I don't have multiple terabytes of storage on my laptop or currently available in the cloud, I'd have to use spare hard drives. That would take 2-3 days if I were to transfer data 24 hours straight, not accounting for switching drives. It would take longer in practice. Also, while the SATA connector is standard, my adapter is in the form of an external drive enclosure, so the rest of it physically cannot fit a 3.5" drive. I could've hacked off the rest of the enclosure, but I was very happy to be able to keep it as is. All that to say, while I would have backed the data up then if there was a good chance it would be lost, it was a relief to hear that wasn't likely.

    Of course, I know data backups are very very handy, but it was nice to get it up and running so I can now do cloud backups from this machine when I get the chance. Plus, my one experience doesn't make a study. It's an anecdote. So, if anyone in the future reads this, I can't say whether you'll have the same luck and circumstance as myself.

    Thanks again for the help and advice everyone!

    1) Yes, thats the recommended way of doing it.
    2) I cannot answer that since I don't know what kind of backup you have.
    3) No, its 100% unnecessary. As long as all the drives except the one you're installing to are physically disconnected until Windows is installed there's no need to do anything else to them.
     
    Why? Thats more work that unplugging 3 sata cables and doing the reinstall in situ. Also the connectors might be the same but the housing might be made to only fit a 2.5" drive.

    Unplug all but your boot drive. Boot from a live Linux USB, mount your boot drive, copy files off of it to the cloud, USB drive, another hard drive, etc. Then wipe your boot drive completely and reinstall. Once that's done you should be able to just plug your other drives back in and mount them in Windows.

    Just connect the drive that is in a loop to your other pc and take out your files and then reinstall windows to be completely safe or you can just plug in a bootable drive and try and fix it from there. For 2. yes you can fresh install from your other pc. For 3. Yes back it up and the sata connector is universal it doesnt matter what size of the drive is, it doesnt have to fit in the bay for it to work it can just hang there since you're just backing up.

    Impressively, it looks like you posted so many memes that the links to them (not the images, just their links) exceeded the max size allowed for status updates. I don't know whether to congratulate you or tell you off, but please don't abuse it so hard in future.
     
    @Den-Fi you can safely manually remove the attached images from your status if you want, though it's probably quite a lot to remove.
     
    The architecture of the forum, and design patterns that they chose, make it really difficult to prevent this, but I will submit a ticket and see what comes of it. (In an ideal world they'd be using a totally different architecture, but I think that ship sailed long ago).

    If I ever go to Germany, I hope that I get the opportunity to ride on Lufthansa's 747-8s. I know Lufthansa flies that, the A350 and A340-600 to BOS so that's a 1/3 chance I get the 747-8.
  13. Agree
    OJTheAviator reacted to greenhorn in Whoosh - The Airplane and Airline Thread   
    Yes, it's similar for me too. In theory, a plane itself could entertain me for an eternity, but since passengers obviously don't get to see every interesting part of it, other things to pass the time are needed on longer flights.
    But once you're having fun, it is shocking how fast the time can pass, I experience that every time I am in the A320 simulator trying interesting approaches.

    I like seeing that "outdated" look in planes, I feel it is like a glimpse into a time when aviation was  more something for wealthy people. I like those planes with seats still from the 70s (rectangular shaped, quite thick), the old fonts used for all the labels. I am thinking of planes of the like of the old 747s (-100, -200 and the SP), the MD80 series.

    On the other hand, some "old" planes can look rather modern even by today's standards. Once in a while, I like to go to a local flight sim center, they have a fixed baseA320 sim made out of an old plane formerly owned by Air France and the cockpit still looks and feels modern (even though it is lacking the fancy gadgets found in the B787 and A350 for example).

    I flew on a Virgin Atlantic A340-600 last year. It was amazingly long, though a little outdated feeling inside.

    I mean they curve the wing tip so it reduces induced drag, which is caused by the reduction of wingtip vortices (kind of acts like a barrier between the high pressure on the lower surface and lower pressure on the upper surface), which increases efficiency

    Personally I've never had a good experience with Ubuntu regardless of hardware; I will always recommend Manjaro. But I bet it is a known issue and has a known fix.

    It was announced four days ago that Lenovo would bring Linux certification to their well-known ThinkPad and ThinkStation, including drivers and full support for running Linux. There is even the option to have Linux pre-loaded! In the past, you had to install it yourself and risk having a bunch of issues with hardware, software, and driver stuff.
     
     
    I personally say, great job Lenovo.

    That's fascinating! If I were to be super pedantic, the C-9 military variant of the DC 9 is entirely retired. But, that's as close as you can get to a prior retirement. Even all the McDonnell Douglas fighters still see some limited use.

    Something I noticed is the MD-90 is the first McDonnell Douglas jet to be retired.
     
    The DC-8 isn't retired yet. The DC-9 isn't. The DC-10, MD-11, MD-80 and, if you want to count it, Boeing 717 aren't. Just the MD-90.
