    Perhaps he painted it pink and covered it in Hello Kitty stickers

    If so there's always a chance to add accesories

    Far as I can tell, or remember, the custom iso I was playing with was probably badly tampered with!
    It really messed up my MBR!
    I lost that file in the confusion, then made a fresh bootable usb on the same stick, so I don't have anything to investigate! Maybe that's just as well though!

    This was the worst part, wiping all 3 disks:

    Tip #1 . Always disconnect all other hard drives when installing/upgrading/messing around with an OS on a separate drive.

    In my case, I switch the harddrives off or pull out the hd trays.

    Glad to hear that you've recovered, but sorry to hear that you had to lose everything!

    I didn't lose anything personal, that's all on external hard drives but now I face the daunting task of re-installing programs.
    The worst one is the recording studio program. I may leave it as I don't use it much anymore.
    It was an exciting day yesterday! Everything is back to normal now, (almost!) :)
