    Erased OS
    Hello,
    The other night, it was late, I was tired, and my computer wasn't running properly for some reason so I decided to reset it.  Well, like I said I was half asleep and I erased everything, and now my hard drive doesn't have an OS.  I tried reinstalling from the disk, but nothing happens.  I get the message that there isn't an OS, press ctrl, alt, delete....   I don't have another pc to put the disk on a thumb drive to try that, so now I am stuck without my pc and can't fly.  I have reset the bios, still nothing....  I don't know what to do.  Any help will be appreciated...
    Thanks

    Sup Money,
    I bought that combo and those pedals are garbage; they did not work at all.  I could not believe they were from the same company.  I even considered giving them away to another v-pilot, but I did not want him to even bother. 
    Take it easy!

    MFG Crosswind
    I keep hearing talk over TS3 which rudder pedals to go with, and from my experience I have no doubt in my mind that the link will send you to the best pedals on the market.  There is another manufacturer that is on par with these, but I can't remember who they are.
