Learned Something New and Important

Never boot off of a RAID 0 array - it will eventually cause problems; as I learned personally and now have to correct.

Thanks to all those who sent me email.

A great little program: ProduKey. You can use it to get your product keys from Windows products. Good to have those saved somewhere safe so you can do a clean install if you need to do such. It sure would have saved me a lot of time. It can be found at:
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/product_cd_key_viewer.html It's small, it doesn't need to be installed (it can work from a thumbdrive). It's a great and useful tool.

Now, I get to install Windows 7 Ultimate and activate it, then install Windows 10 and activate it, and then after I get the product key, do a clean install of Windows 10.

Hopefully others will learn from my experience.

Have a great day!
