Re: [Boot-Repair] Graphical tool to repair the PC boot in one click
Thanks for the information on an additional item for the X.org toolbox. As of March 2014, I'm looking for specific new pieces of hardware for upgrading two computers plus building a third, and the Boot-Repair tool is a definite to-consider for situations where things fail to respond after all Modules are called up.
For the new system, most new motherboards packing a planar EIA-232/EIA-574 asynchronous-serial header, I'm also on the hunt (no joy as of 12 March 2014) for a compact-enough 80x24-character serial-terminal subsystem to mount inside a double-width server case along with a stack of SATA hard drives, a SATA super-multi optical drive, a dual-floppy drive (for 5-1/4" double- and high-density 80-cylinder floppies plus double- and quad-density 3-1/2" 80-cylinder disquettes) daisy-chained off a firmware-upgraded Catweasel® PCIe x1 disquette controller (I'd like some diagnostic capabilities consistent with the latest KryoFlux® software), and a USB multi-format memory-card reader/writer; I've planned on a discrete PCIe x16 GPU card with at least 1 GB GDDR5 video memory and a PCIe x1 super-I/O for additional EIA-232 and/or -574 serial ports plus an IEEE 1284 enhanced parallel port (pref. with a 36-pin mini-Centronics rather than a DB-25S).
