Alright, I haven’t said enough, and here goes: It pains me to see people cashing in on something that has been originally constructed as a simple and user-friendly few-step process which takes only a few key presses to configure. It pains me even more that someone is willing to call himself an IT professional while noting “Windows setup” as a primary capability. To all the guys and gals working their asses off to upgrade their customers’ hardware in a budget conscious manner, hunt down missing drivers, carefully load their PCs with software, setup the surrounding network and train the end user accordingly – I salute you. To all the idiots only doing a complete HDD format and installing Windows XP over a preinstalled Windows 7 system because it “runs better” – may Cthulhu have your soul.
If you are reading this, then it is obvious that somebody pissed me off with the above mentioned actions and asked for my help on how to install a dial-up modem. Attached picture is only mildly related.
