    Had a rather long wrestling match with a laptop for Win8 install, changed partitions with PW and lost the boot files and drive letters. Stubborn bugger didn't want to let itself be fixed by Disk Management, Diskpart, PW fix Boot, in the end (just before restore with Macruim) the Macruim Reflect WinPE USB drive Boot Repair worked.

    I've been wondering about the fish in Windows 8 CP splash screen ever since I saw it....

    It looks like a Betta, which if you knocked one "t" off it would spell Beta. Do you think my theory holds water?

    That makes sense; do you the they'll keep it in the final release or just in the Beta versions?
