    Yes, let's try to get to the one-time boot menu - that should work for sure, if you can get there. Otherwise, I'm researching another trick.

    Okay, you don't want to delete the USB - that's right. So the 465GB drive is unallocated now? That's where you want to install Windows.

    I'm glad you asked. It has loaded. Maureen is now in the process of personalizing a few things and, after a short while, I'm going to re install the printer.

    Again. It's amazing that this all started with a inability to re install the printer.

    The big benefit is how much I've learned(as much as it probably seemed like an exercise in futility). I now feel confident enough to perform the same procedure on hers again, if necessary, and on mine too, if it were to need it.

    My deepest gratitude goes out to you.

    Tomorrow I will send you a pm. I have a couple of other questions(not tech related) I hope you can answer for me. Nothing mysterious, or inappropriate. Just a couple run of the mill things.

    I'll also leave another update in this thread about the install.
