Entry 4th August 2017: Post: 1

Living in a box in pictures


The A590 journey in pictures from the unit I thought was the only one I had in a box
to me formatting the two empty partitions and installing 2.1. Realising that I had
another 590 in a box and similarly formatted and installed 2.1 . To me searching
through various A590s for the missing 35.28 update installation. Found it. Phew !!

This won't mean a whole heap of sense unless you read the last two posts from my diary

Everything you see here is running on an XT hard drive
