No, my hardware didn't fail Windows failed. The disk wasn't actually broken, Windows 7 was broken.
And no, Nye, I did not lie about the windows update problems. I did not exaggerate, let alone majorly.
It was exactly as I described. On starting the laptop after unboxing, the update center informed me that it needed to install a few dozen updates, and I said Ok. Then it informed me that it needed to reboot, and I said Ok. Then it tried to apply the updates, failed, and on showing the desktop told me it had crucial updates to apply I said Ok, and it asked me to reboot, and I said Ok -- rinse and repeat until Windows was satisfied.
