least I don't have to worry about that...
course I have to worry about daily stuff here, single digit (F) temps, high winds, 6-12 inches of heavy wet snow dropping tonight, etc so on and so forth. life in rural northeast maine can be....interesting.
but...as Old Dominion sings....thats a song for another time...
best of luck to everyone dealing with this, hope its fixed soon.
edit:fixed odd link to video
man had 15 pcs running ME, mix of ide, eide and some sata cards. none of them worked reliably even with no network or usb connections.
seems like the systems self degraded after 60 days or so.
can understand xp, can even support decision to keep it depending on situation.
I downgraded some to 98SE and move others to 2K just to get OFF ME

sorry wrong link posted first, left in place just to show trace
can then approve/decline updates as needed per groups.
this would be for non domain pc's.

big bang very quickly with 4 6volts wired series and someone makes one wire mistake.
was supposed to be 2 "banks" of 2 6volts in series and guy decided to hook cable from another truck across last 2 terminals instead of the truck (ironically fire truck) + / - leads.

had sort of opposite happen to me, older ml350g1 tower that, for unknown reason, had a manual 120/240 switch on psu instead of auto sense auto switch.
had been set at 240 and nothing worked when plugged in. took few moments to figure out what was going on as was ordered with auto switch psu. got it figured out, got it running while vendor (iirc was straight from compaq) sent correct psu.
