no need to apologize, I should have told you that ten replies back.
the person sold my sister a computer in shambles (and it is now mine).
we don't want a compromised windows 7 operating system, clean or otherwise.
You folks here are experts, and I know I am not, but it can't hurt to ask, would this pc happen to have a restore or recovery partition that returns the pc back to factory default (I think it does)? If so, I sure would like to take advantage of it.
we have a disk here, but I doubt it is the one we want. it says:
drivers and utilities
thank you for the offer, I may take advantage of it, but I prefer linux (windows is out of the question). Is this OK with you?
first I want to do a little google about the recovery/restore (probably in vein).
don't feel bad, torreattack, both me and my sister got a good deal on the pc even if it ends up with linux on it.
this is a blessing in disguise.
