Just resolved this.  Booting to safe mode let me run the install.  Not sure what the issue was.  Fortunately the user was pretty patient.

Not sure that really answered my question.  I mainly work with virtual environments now.  This makes it easy to shadow a user's session and provide assistance without having to by physically at the location.

I'm a fan except for the forced updates.  I don't trust Microsoft to not break things.

I used to post some back in the day.  When I first started in IT, I was in a cubicle where others were walking by all the time.  I used to come on here when I had nothing else to do, so that if anyone questioned why I was browsing the internet, I could tell them I was researching for my certification exams.

Sounds like maybe a failed hard drive.

Currently using an XPS 13.  Really liking it.  Small but still powerful.

If no, what do you do now?

I used to post on here some back in the early 2000s when I was first getting into IT and cared about certifications.  I was in a cubical at the time, with people always walking by, and this was one of the few websites that I could go on (since it was work related) to pass the time when things were slow.

I wish the search function was working.  I'd really like to see what I was talking about 10 years ago!

I didn't even know the site had been down.  The last time I logged in was 2008!

I just want to say thanks for starting this site Dimitri!  Back when I was just starting out in IT (2001) this site was a big help and great source of information.  It looks like it is pretty much dead now; too bad.

You seem to be under the mistaken impression that "personal computer" is the role of a computer, but that is untrue.  PC is the term we used to use for "IBM compatible PC", which today means any Intel-based computer.  It's a physical description of the machine.

If you disagree, answer me this...  Is a Macintosh desktop computer a PC?

You are correct that the term ‘«£PC‘«ō refers to an IBM compatible personnel computer and not a Macintosh.  However, it still refers to a personnel computer, a term I would not use to describe a server.  
All in all, an argument could probably be made for either side and unless you can point me to a link that defines PC as ‘«£all Intel based computers‘«ō, we should probably agree to disagree.
