comment Calendar shows lighter/greyed out items
@rishimaharaj done it, and you can see the difference! Both last all day, which is why I didn't spot it before, but one is ticked as all day, whereas the other is from 00:00 to 24:00. Feel free to post an answer and I'll accept it :) Thanks!

comment Calendar shows lighter/greyed out items
hmm, as soon as I change the colour in the Win calendar app, the lighter colours instantly change to be a lighter version of that colour (ie if I set it to purple, those events become light purple), so I assumed the app was setting them to a lighter colour for a specific reason.

@Sathya I think they're preinstalled, but I don't know how to open, they just opened automatically inside visual studio.

@Logman I tried a different port, formatting still failed. The device appears under Disk Drives in Device Manager (properties says it's working properly), but still nothing in My Computer, and no formatting

comment Toshiba recovery disc doesn't give me all partition options
The ironic thing is that it will cost me more to buy 32bit Win7 or XP than it cost me to buy Win8!

(Just while we're on the topic) Where can you find the install media? I haven't found any in my research.

comment Toshiba recovery disc doesn't give me all partition options
I've just found out (in the VM) that I can't run the OS anyway. online install fails, and I'm presuming that's because I'm using a different machine than the disk was designed for.
