Compaq TC1000 Tablet and Windows XP Tablet Edition DVD 2005

Two separate deliveries ordered at different times both turned up today and they 100% complement each other...

The tablet didn't come with a hard disk drive (luckily I've been buying a few up on eBay just for times like this) so I needed the second item to be able to get the correct OS on it!

Today I have spent most of the day watching Doctor Who with Martha Jones as the companion whilst scanning 21 IDE hard disk drives I purchased off of eBay for errors and bad sectors:

  • 2 Alive and Just About Kicking But Had Some Bad Sectors
  • 9 Passed With Flying Colours!
