Apparently, you've never tried to play the Russian release of STALKER: Clear Sky. GSC Game Works might currently be in a world of legal hurt over that one. They pretty much released the game ahead of schedule as "Retail", but it turned out they were using the Russian customers as nothing more than a large scale Beta test. Due to all the problems that they've been having, the have pushed back the Worldwide retail release twice that I know of (Three if you include the publishers foul-up of not printing CD Keys in the manual, which ended up as a recall, and another delay).
Mine's the one with the geiger counter and a pocket full of bolts.... Yeah, the AKS-74U is mine too.
BIOS can be bypassed, so all Mem Checks are off
Here's a nice trick that works with certain Mobo vendors and corresponding CMOS/BIOS Writers:
Put new firmware on a floppy!
I've had to do this before when a friend of mine bricked his BIOS. Basically, you just make a Windows boot floppy, put the BIOS flasher and new BIOS (With Mem Test disabled or even missing from the binary) on it, and put the commands to flash it in the AUTOEXEC.BAT.
Apparently, you pull out a jumper, put in the disk, and it doesn't even do a BIOS check, it just runs the disk and Flash's the BIOS (Don't know specifics, would need to check some hardware I'd think). Works on a LOT of MSI hardware.
Now, with enough recon, you could figure out the mobo maker, and download a BIOS update. End result - Owned.
Sidenote: If your HDD encryption relies on your Windows password, your HDD encryption is S**t. Stick some something safe, like TrueCrypt (And it's Bootloader).
Even if he is sane
They could sentence him to worse, 20 years of hard labor as a Microsoft Developer. I sentenced myself to 2 months in Microsoft State Penn doing Intern labor. Put me back on the straight and narrow real quick.
I'm not worried ....
Total Disk encryption with TrueCrypt. Although highly modified, might I add. I need a boot CD, a password, and a PXE image. FBI kicks in my door, I'll just pull the power plug. Muwahahahahahahah .......
