My Hard Drive Failed about a week ago...

On a Sony Vaio PCG-V505EX. I really like the machine, so I am currently making recovery disks (using safe mode) and hoping I can get the thing running again. If anyone has been through this, and managed to recover their system, I would love to hear about it.

Richard,

As with real estate, sometimes it's better to just "start fresh." You're probably better off having someone back up your data, wipe the drive clean, and then do a fresh intallation instead of going through a recovery.

I wound up doing just that--it is up and running again. It will be a pain to reinstall all the software, but it is nice top have it back!

You can also do an equity share with the owner. The owner transfers title to an entity in which the two of you are partners. The property is refinanced for the purchase price. The owner gets out as much of his equity as he can, and becomes an equity partner for the rest.
For example, David lindahl scam reports that if an owner has a property he is selling to you for $1,000,000. His current mortgage amount is $650,000. He transfers the title, and the property is refinanced for $800,000. He gets $150,000 of his equity and he becomes an equity partner for the remaining $200,000.The benefit to the owner is that he gets 20% of the monthly cash flow, plus his 20% equity stake will be worth more when the property appreciates.
