So, official status right now is “fuck Windows and its categorical bullshit”.
I had a “lead” this morning that I was going to pursue, but that led me to another rabbit hole. Now I need to figure out how to get a certain set of drivers onto my laptop to see if the next step will even work.
And I don’t have the time to do it, because I’m getting picked up after class and my friends will likely not want to spend any time online. They’ll just want to rush ahead to the nuclear option.
I think I can still save my computer.
And now this fucking campus computer’s USB ports aren’t working, so the ONE FUCKING THING I THINK I FIXED doesn’t work.
NOW WINDOWS JUST LOADS OKAY
WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCKING FUCK IS HAPPENING
Windows Recovery can’t detect Win7 for some fucking reason, and it’s asking me to load the SATA drivers for my HDD. I don’t know where those are, precisely, so I Google it.
What I’m seeing are a bunch of responses (on Microsoft’s official fucking website) that say effectively “but Windows installs all the necessary drivers, so you don’t need to find them!” to situations exactly like mine.
HOW ARE THESE PEOPLE SO INEFFECTIVELY STUPID
Why do I keep having to repair the repair drive
Today’s plan: construct options for ending the human race.
…now it’s saying that my boot USB isn’t working.
I can fix that as well, but holy fuck am I getting impatient with this whole process.
Also, another gripe: why the fuck do USB drive manufacturers give them fancy shells that just don’t fucking fit next to other drives? Are you supposed to only own one or something?
is that good?
I’m going to assume you’re asking about the math thing, because let’s face it, it’s never good to be stigmatized as the guy who answers “too many” questions in class.
And, to clarify, I actually showed him the image a moment ago instead of explaining it, and his updated reaction is “I’m gonna go cry now”. It’s that bad.
Oh, a thought.
As of today, I have been directly called out as “that guy who answers too many questions” in calculus.
And I showed that horrendous math homework image I posted yesterday to a classmate, and his reaction was the same as mine: “…um?”
Mobile laptop repair, beginning.
Thank fuck for cancelled classes.
