I had major problems with the the windows 7 installation, and had to reinstall everthing from scratch.

I've been thinking of doing this for a while as my backups have deterioted as well. The system was an upgrade from Vista, all those moons ago.

Lancelot seems to be running ok now.

I apologies, for the 350 tasks that have errored out, but hopefully some of these will bounce back to my new installation.

Still got several hours of work to get my system back as I want it, but at least its working.

Arthur and Morena have been running throughout, them being the other 2 on the network.

I must apologise again.

I have been upgrading my Network to windows 8 and have lost around 1200 work units, and about 70 inconsistants .

The desktops have had a complete clean install of W8, upgrading from a clean install of W7.

Both desktops, have a spare 1TB hard drive , so I used those.

Both dual boot, or tri boot with W7, and Ubuntu.

On re-installing the project I noticed that one computers, was
generating computational errors on ATI GPU tasks.

I quickly tracked this down.I forgot to update the W8 generic driver to the latest ATI driver12.10.

As soon as I done that, the ATI GPU WU's began to report OK again.

Everything appears to be settling down again.

The laptop, I upgraded directly, over the pre installed version of w7.

That's reporting OK

Again my apologies for the errored WU's
