Re: @JeffyPooh Linux, Linux, Linux, Linux,

Much as I know loath M$, Linux - at least in ubuntu flavour - has not been good to me.

I installed, played with and then decided to try the LAST LTS version of U for a new business venture.

All went well, minor updates installed perfectly; then the NEW LTS version came along - and bricked my machine.

It took out BOTH HDDs, so I couldnt access the back-up I had made on my Data disk.

This isnt an ancient PC, but a fairly new budget AMD A88 mobo with bog standard RAM and built in gfx.

Before anyone says "live disk", I tried both a CD and a usb drive version, neither could get access to the OS drive; I have had to delete the partition and start from scratch.
