Another problem with "bench monkeys" at computer stores: I brought my laptop into Fry's Electronics for repair because of problems with the display. When the tech saw Grub on the screen, he pressed return to boot the laptop. Since it didn't immediately boot to Windows he put on the repair ticket that the machine "...does not boot Windows..." I had to scratch that out before I signed the paperwork.
I know my laptop is going to be returned with the hard drive "repaired" so it will correctly boot Windows. Good thing I made a disk image before sending it in.
