  1. THANK YOU! I was having such a frustrating day trying to move to a new computer, entirely because of irritating errors like this one. I read through the tutorial and thought “great, there goes half my day”. This was simple, took less than 20 minutes, and the two most important things:
    1. the steps were accurate- I HATE getting tutorials where the instructions don’t even vaguely match up with what my computer is telling me,
    2. IT WORKED

    Thank you so much, I appreciate you putting this out there. Please know you saved my Sunday afternoon.

    1. Hi Sara
