A friend's system crashed a few days ago. He had to reinstall Windows and also resized his partitions to suit his needs.
- Installing Windows: 70minutes
- Number of reboots for install and post-install drivers, etc : several times
- Reconfiguring Windows install to previous one: 120minutes
- Installing Ubuntu with single reboot: 40minutes
- Ubuntu automatically telling you your mouse needs to be recharged: priceless
And a Happy New Year to all.
