|After inserting the bootable USB stick, prayer and more research, I selected: "Start Linux Mint", and was introduced to the amazing world of Linux! All the netbook files were visible and I started the laborious process of transferring files to storage devices. Then I remembered something read earlier and followed that instruction to repair XP (by returning to the last Restore Point).|
Everything is now working beautifully!
Thank you! People like you, willing to get involved, help to take the mystery out of computing, for those of us who are not-so-techie.
