Well today I went and bought myself a new hard drive (500gb Seagate for $139).
Brought it home but didn't get to touch it, as Caroline came over for dinner and was busy cooking and eating and watching tv and playing Wii.
Finally got around to installing it. Didn't take too long to figure out how to pull apart my case (which turned out to be rather simple). Swapped out the old drive for the new one.
And ran Windows 7 setup.
There was a tense moment as it seemed to have hung in the same place it did last night, but it carried on and installed fairly quickly. Once in windows it took a hard reboot to kick the network interface. But apart from that it seems to be going ok.
I'm a little worried about attaching the USB hub. While I was having all these other troubles, the computer hung at the Dell splash screen when the thing was attached. Whether or not it'd do it now I'm not sure.. I'm almost not game to try - what if it kills this disk too?? I'm sure I'm being paranoid. Pretty sure the disk problems started happening before I first attached it.... Wonder if I could retrieve the old disk's windows event logs to see....
So anyways.. we'll see how this goes..
