I was trying to set windows remote desktop and apparently go into something I shouldn't, because all of my network connections stopped working despite my best efforts to repair them. So instead of coming here and asking for help, like I should have, I decided to just run a repair installation. Well, now the "repair installation" stops half-way through and will not go any further. Like a fool I did not back up my data before the repair installation. So, in order to fix my computer now it looks like I'll have to format it for the second time this month. However, since I didn't back up my data, I would have spend an afternoon juggling partitions in order to load windows to back up my data without erasing it. Does anyone have any better ideas? Perhaps I could use a linux live CD?
