At least I've got Win98 to fall back on to use to back up all my stuff. At least the drive's partitioned so I don't have to wipe everything. That was a good idea. But still, what a pain in the ass.
My computer says "Yep, you get to spend hours reconstructing what your dumb ass destroyed in thirty seconds!"
And, I installed it on my work computer (SAME OS, mind you) and it was beautiful. Go fig.
