    If the only option is to do a complete recovery, exit that and find a friend with an Xp install or a Win7 install and create a USB startup disk.

    Same field as you... microbiologist. LOL!
    It's not like every lab working on microbiology is doing the same thing... virology, bacteriology, parasitology, and so on... and if it is for example bacteriology, is it in infection biology, growth and development, plant biology and so on...

    So I think the question is legit ;-)

    OK so there's only the recovery option. That's not what you want unless you've done a backup. I wasn't sure if there were different options. With a WinXP disk startup there's utilities available.

    OK, you'll need to get a hold of a friend unless you want to wipe your computer clean. What's annoying is that I have about 40 computers in my view...

    Very interesting. David Russell gave a talk recently about this at our university. Well, to be honest it was a rather strange seminar: "We have found out this and this, but we can't publish it because nobody believes it."

    Do you have to work in a safety level 3 lab?

    safety level 3 is correct. Its very hard yo work with tb. Generation times are anywhere from 18-30 hours. And if an experiment doesn't work, its a week down the drain.

    Its difficult to change perceptions that people have about tb, so publishing is difficult. If there are results that people do not expect, they just reject it.

    I can only imagine.

    I applied for a PhD position in a lab that works under safety 3 conditions, but with Brucella. This lab is shared with a tuberculosis group. However I then took another offer and now I'm working with the most harmless bacterium imaginable, Caulobacter ;-)

    that's nice.

    Brucella is scary. As for TB, its been found that lab workers have the lowest incidence of TB, because of all the precautions in place in the lab. Still, one can't be complacent.

    I better find someone to help me with my netbook, or this presentation won't be done on the weekend :-(

    See you later.

    You're welcome. Sorry I couldn't help more.

    Personally I would recommend getting a portable USB CD/DVD drive and borrowing the Xp CD from your friend. That's the easiest way to do things. I don't think they're that expensive these days. Where do you live? Having the portable drive can come in handy too.

    I just realized today is Friday. And I think I don't have to go to the lab this weekend, mostly because I can't really work at Monday due to seminars and meetings.

    Isn't that all great?

    Very nice, I hope there will be a lot of cake :)

    I'll see a play tonight, and Saturday evening a colleague organizes a dinner. Apart from that I don't have plans. I still might visit my mother at Sunday, but I don't really plan to do it.
