Thanks, guys. The case actually isn't that big, however I am a bit small.

I had to replace the motherboard and that took care of some of the problems, however now I'm having trouble installing Windows on a SATA drive. I can't seem to get the SATA drivers installed. I am slipstreaming my Windows CD with the drivers. I tried it first with my XP 64 CD and while the CD worked, it didn't seem to actually install the drivers. I am trying it again with my home CD.

Wow, you have a lot of VHS tape rack drawer things... I used to have two of those double-drawer things back in the 90's but they fell apart long ago. Now I don't even have a VCR.

well, I live with my grandparents if that helps to explain all the VHS drawer things. There's actually more on top of the other hi-fi speaker.

Yeah, the kid didn't get into any of the photos. I ended up having to move my boot partition to an IDE drive, though. Those silly SATA drivers were just too much trouble.

I've lived with them since high school, and I didn't have a regular job until recently. I am fairly old-fashioned so I'll probably live here until I get married.

I've actually got it going now by plugging in my old boot drive and installing on that partition. That's a pretty old drive, though, and I'm afraid it'll be dying soon so now I'm moving around some things and making a new partition on the other IDE drive which I had actually planned on keeping in the computer. I already tried imaging the Windows partition and restoring it on the SATA partition and that for some reason failed.

My boyfriend took the pictures.
