Another question, Mike. I'm proceeding slowly and carefully. In your statement above, does the ISO file get written first to the computer's hard drive and then copied to a DVD using ImgBurn, or can it be written directly to the DVD? I have downloaded and installed ImgBurn but have not tried running it yet. I see options "Write image file to disc" and "Write files/folders to disc."If you want to make a Windows install DVD, select the ISO file option and then write the ISO file to a disk using the ImgBurn program.
Mike, thanks for the feedback. Here are my replies:One: did you create a bootable repair disk using Todo backup, it's under the Tools tab.
I prefer to make them on a DVD, and use the Linux version, but you can do it on a flash drive too or using Windows PE.
I ask because you said that you used ImgBurn to create it and that's not necessary.
Just use the utility in the Tools folder to make a repair disk.
As for changing your user name, I don't think there's a problem with that especially the new non Microsoft account.
And if you ever need to find the registration code for any of your software there is a free program that will tell you everything about your computer including all your software license numbers.
It's called Belarc Advisor.
