You're a lot more patient then I am Aelin.   By now I'd be teaching that laptop how to FLY out the window..... :thud:

Flying against a wall or end under a hammer are 2 solutions I keep in last resort :psycho:
But if I want a little chance in more to do renders, I must continue. One day.

Gather all your courage, get a screwdriver, extract the hard disk and throw that against the wall (or put it in the microwave, or however make it suffer :winks: ).
The rest of the laptop is innocent, spare its life! :pleeeeez:

End of morning until a part of afternoon and 1 word: ISO  :crazysmile:
W8.1 is alive, even if I was forced to "bidouiller" it (I don't like the "hack" term).

I needed to formate partitions, and yes I know, to lose everything that HP put onto. Only partition I kept was Recovery (even if it looks like damaged, like it refused to do the job) because it contains the Windows OEM.
I had warnings:
- because partitions aren't in the good order
- because for an unknow reason the 'new' format of partition is different than necessary for Windows (GPT in place of M.. something).

But it works!  :happydance:
Maybe it's the last threat to open it by a not sweet manner which decided it :psycho: But I can say it's good to be "at home" now.

I have started to look to bring to date pilotes, but it looks like Windows made a part of job with the reinstallation.

But I have a little trick with "Windows defender". It refuses to leave me enter in options on the configuration pannel. I guess the fight will continue on another level.

 :ty01: guys! Now I cross fingers that W8.1 accepts to play regularly, as longer as the hard disk will accept to work.

I really wish you the best Luck, Aelin, although I already told you what I think of a disk that betrayed you once...

But you know that, thus I'm sure you'll backup your most important files as often as possible - it's like an insurance: you keep paying (in this case with your valuable time) and hope you'll never need to cash. But in case something goes wrong you're much better off :smile:

This is great news, Aelin.  Glad to hear that your tilt with the HP dragon was successful.   :winks:
