Thanks for the reply. I thought that I was going to let down my wingman. Next time I will not rely on Dell piece of ##@!%.

If you can rescue the harddrive and get to the boinc data folder, you can transplant that into a new host.

BOINC is designed to handle such things by itself, there are probably hundreds machines daily that fail or simply never come back, because the user doesn't want to crunch anymore and doesn't care to abort and report the WUs back to the project.

So if a machine fails and you can't or don't want to fix it anymore, simply ignore those tasks, the servers will take care of them when they reach their deadline. No need to feel bad because of that, you're not letting down anybody. Hardware failures happen to everybody every now and than.
