There are kids from wealthy families that end up underachieving as well so my guess is that when fingers are pointed back at families (black or otherwise), the author has no idea what that really means.
It means engaging with your children about their day. What did they eat? What did they learn...

Update: The 2nd desktop has the same issue, so it's a driver issue and not hardware. I figured as much but if I had not tested it it damned sure would have been a hardware issue because that's just the way things work :lol:...
| Tech Board|| re: WDS & Dell drivers - Bard on 7/31/14 at 9:35 am|
I realized I hadn't tried the laptop since regenerating the image after the last driver injection. Tried it while waiting on hold and it's working soooooo frick me running. :casty:
Now I have to go unbox another desktop to test it out, but at least I know I can get the laptops done now :cheers:...

Irving: "Would it be possible for me to send you a new motherboard since there seems to be a problem with your N-E-C, Network Interface Card?"
Me: "Normally I would jump on a new part, but considering this is happening with one of the new laptops as well, I don't think it's a hardware issue".

My first gripe: why does WinPE need anything more than just a generic driver for a NIC? It's good enough to PXE boot with, it's good enough to load the .WIM files... why the hell does MS demand specific drivers for this?
Second gripe: Why the bleeding hell does Dell release new systems that ne...
