Circumstances beyond my control forced a change of plan!
I was going to continue upgrading my computers to Windows 7 and spent a fair amount of time preparing the Boss’s old netbook ready for the upgrade process.
I got together all the programs I wanted to reinstall, tidied up the netbook and ran Windows 7 easy transfer program.
I then tried to order a copy of 32-bit Windows 7 from my preferred supplier. They were out of stock. I went to my second preferred provider who had 42 units in stock and I ordered one.
Delivery was promised in 48 hours and I checked 48 hours later to discover that my order was still being processed.
Further investigation showed that my supplier was now showing “Out of stock awaiting – delivery!!
Steam came out of my ears
I therefore returned to the broken old netbook of mine and spent four days resuscitating it and putting it back into shape – successfully so far!
I am therefore awaiting delivery of a new copy of Windows 7 before I can continue the update process on the Boss’s old machine!!
Not a happy bear!
