Update on item 3:

Installed OpenBSD on a completely separate hard drive, and now my motherboard can't even find Windows 10.

I'm not sure if the problem is that Windows isn't on the first drive in the machine, 'cause that's what I plopped OBSD on. Did windows place it's EFI info that drive? There was already a partition there for it to use. A leftover from the prior linux install.

Or maybe I just don't understand how EFI works?

I miss the days of installing stuff on PowerPC based Macs. Sure the hardware support was kinda flakey, and there were no binarys for flash, but it was a limited ecosystem that I know inside and out.

I just want to play overwatch and have a decent OS to use. Now I've gotta flash a windows installer to usb and recover shit.


Update on Item 5:

So far, kinda a meh book. Might have been more interesting if I hadn't just read Zinn, and also read pieces of Legacy of Ashes a while back. Lots of overlap between those thus far.
