|Completed the repair reinstall, but with tons of errors. Didn't help that I never did manage to find my floppy disk for the drivers. I had to create my own by going to the website for my motherboard and taking an educated guess at the drivers I needed.|
Restarted and managed to log in. Too many things aren't working though. I can't access either the internet or the network, and I really want to prioritise this so I can create an external backup. If I can get this done then I'm willing to cut my losses and do a format reinstall.
How can I get these up and running?
Alternatively, can you suggest any other methods for transferring my files to an external hard drive? I have access to computers that have access to it. Is it possible to attach the hard drive to them to achieve this, and without any ill effects?
