Rant

Glaargh

Okay, I want to swap the 320GB drive that came with Sae for a 640GB one.  To do that, I need to burn a set of install disks, because no-one bothers to provide them any more.

I can't do that, because Sae is a lightweight notebook and doesn't have a DVD drive.

No problem, I have an external drive.

The recovery disk creation utility doesn't recognise it.  Or rather, it does, but it doesn't believe that there's a disk in the drive.

No problem, I can install a trial copy of Virtual CD, burn to that, and then burn the ISOs.

The recovery disk creation utility doesn't recognise Virtual CD either.  Or rather, it does, but it doesn't believe that there's a virtual disk in the virtual drive.

No problem.  I already downloaded all the Sony drivers just in case, so all I need to do is grab a copy of the Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit disk image from my MSDN account, burn that, install it using the existing license key, and go from there.

MSDN is down for the weekend.

Update:  Hmm.  Maybe if I burn a repair disk and do a full backup.  Now if only I had a spare drive to back up onto...

1 I understand your pain. They make it almost impossible to do an reinstall or backup of your own system these days which I think is so unfair. You often dont think about it until your pc goes bang
