I need some advice:
I recently had a friendly client (Friend of the family) who came to me wtih an old computer and said "No program is allowing me to wipe out the hard drive. If you can wipe the hard drive and give it to me, you can keep the rest of the system for yourself"
I replied saying "You sure? Even old....there are plenty of things you can do with it." and he said "I travel too much so im restricted to laptops...after your modification I don't really need much anymore."
So after a hard time wiping out the drive....
Yes...Partion Magic didn't work...Hard Drive Manufacturer's content did not work...Using Windows to Reformat a HDD or deleting everything through an OS installer or OS itself failed..(even Fdisk failed too).but after I finally wiped the data I was given the rest of the computer.
I checked its specificaitons....Integrated video, 2GB RAM...Old processor (Pentium Dual Core)...Yes, it said PENTIUM, the version before Core 2 Duo. The best thing about this system is the actual case. Very small and nearly noiseless after some adjustments...along with its accessibility. A pure "Desktop-Level" case (not a tower case) and thanks to recovering disks I have several free operating systems legally.
I thought of the idea of using as a server for very old games to run 24/7...By old I mean games from 1999 - 2004 that I still play that are still some of my favorites...to help a community and free up my stronger systems for more powerful servers. What do you all think? Have any other ideas for it. The case is amazing because I can change parts and has a really nice accessibility to everything.
