    Glad you found a way forward. Now prepare for the next one, and get into the routine of using disk imaging (and restore points if you like).

    I have been using Acronis/Apricorn for about 10 years and always have at least one backup hard drive with complete bootable O/S and all program and data on hand. For my M55 machine I have one drive with Win 7 and one with Win 10 (which I do not like) so I can revert to a better system anytime I want in about 5 minutes, given the "no-tools needed" nature of the M55. This is much better than the Windows "restore point" process in that it is comprehensive and external to the "C" drive.
