Thanks for the addition Ahmad, added to the OP.
Yes CG is Jordanian so he has the advantage of being bi-lingual.
If we could understand the other languages posted we'd probably find them amusing too.
The point being that "boot(strapp)ing" the system is an English joke (discussed later in the thread than your post), and it's interesting how different cultures interpret and translate an abstract concept such as self-levitation.

And the reason I didn't add it myself is because the last time I sat in front of an arabic OS was with Windows 3.1.1 :smile:

In case I didn't make it clear.
It's not translations of DIsk Management fields into foreign languages that we need, rather the opposite.
If you are using a language pack with Windows which displays Disk Management in that language, we need a translation of the fields displayed, back into English so we can correctly interpret the information on any screenshot so that we understand how to advise you on what your problem might be.
The entries in this thread should describe exactly how Disk Management translates those fields, not a general translation of the English terms into other languages. That's why we can't enter any tranlations because we're all using the English language pack, so we don't know how DM looks in the other packs.

I'll make this more explicit in the OP
