i've just discovered a way to terminate any possibility for windows xp to be installed on computers.
the implications are staggering. a small LVM partition scheme of only 512 bytes in size, when overwritten by a virus to a hard drive's boot sector, would be sufficient to wipe out a large proportion of the world's internet-enabled computers.
i absolutely love it.
oh dear god, it's not limited to HP machines. i've tried on a dell optiplex, too. and i've tried both XP home and XP pro install disks.
