With thanks to James, Mike, my brother Eddie, the world wide internet and my enormous collection of CDROMs I’ve almost managed to restore my Installation partition to its former girth.
Most of my frequently-used applications have been installed and re-customized to my tastes. Just got the arduous task of sorting out my 6-months-ago-My-Documents restored partition, to see what I’ve lost there, and what I need to recreate.
While the whole experience was horrible, I’m enjoying having a lean, fast machine once again. I need to Ghost it in this state so that my next reinstallation will take 1 hour rather than 100.
However … what is complete?
