comment Windows 8 Consumer Preview Upgrade keeps on failing
I got this exact same error on the release edition of Windows 8 Pro on a Thinkpad T420s running Win7 pro. Both "Keep Windows settings, personal files and appplications" and "Keep personal files only" failed. Had to "Install by creating media" to install to an USB stick. I ended up doing a full reinstall from USB.

comment Set fan speed by RPM on Thinkpad T420s in Linux
As you say, Thinkfan essentially does echo "level 2" > /proc/acpi/ibm/fan too. I've already automated the changing of fan speeds, I just want level 2.5 :)

comment Determining if a hard disk has been removed and data copied from it?
I can just connect the drive to my Linux computer and run dd if=/dev/sdx of=out.img. Afaik merely connecting the disk to a PC won't leave any traces. Then I'll get a copy of every byte on the disk that I can alter without you knowing, since I now have my own copy.

comment Replace HD with SSD in MacBook where CD/DVD drive is broken
That's interesting. I do this all the time when I install Linux, so I don't have to waste time and plastic on burning CDs. I only have Snow Leopard on a DVD, where do I get a DVD image? (That's what you mean, right, a img or dmg or something?)
