I lost everything that wasn't backed up a loooong time ago.
I had to Boot & Nuke with Darik's software. Then reinstall Win 7.
Then I thought maybe Win 10 would work, nope, locked again after installing!

So just give up?
Try Linux?
How does anyone talk to MS?
How has this unapproachable, juggernaut, monopoly, come to be?


p.s. this is my laptop, not the PC listed specs here.
