Jove added a topic in Hardware Software & TechnologyErased OSHello,
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...

Jove added a topic in Hardware Software & TechnologyMFG CrosswindI 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.
