The reason I ask is that I'm trying reimage an old Samsung Netbook. and whenever I try Chromium OR Firefox, eventually. the machine goes into a non-responsive state (left overnight) with hdd light on steady but chunking. Sorry if my geek is Greek...Peace

P.S. Any knowledge that I'm barking up the wrong tree is most welcome.

  • what is reimage exactly? - Does the HDD have no issue? (see smarmontools) – cmak.fr Feb 11 at 8:59
  • By reimage I mean to wipe out everything on the hdd and install a fresh OS. – wot Feb 11 at 23:51
  • I think the hdd is fine. I'm learning about spinlock – wot Feb 11 at 23:52
