    Same drive letter

    Nope, that didn't work either. Just bought the XP recovery disk from Neo, ran it three times and although it stated that it was repaired, the boot list never came up and I then had to repair Win 7 startup. This is really getting me down. I used easy bcd for years without any problem.

    The tv is not connected to the pc, however I have an extra long usb cable, can I link the tv to my modem and then create a network that includes my tv? Or do I need to buy an extender?
