パソコン ディスクエラーで起動せず

7年前に買ったWindows7の器械はWindows10にアプグレードして特定の用途に使っていたが、先日使おうとしたらBIOS画面が出てすぐに消え、その後ディスクエラーでエラー確認中と表示されて何時間もそのままの状態が続いた。

使用中のソフトがあるが、クリーンインストールしかなかろう。だが、Windowsが起動しないので、回復ができない。

とにかく回復させるには、回復ドライブを使えばよいとネットには書いてある。現在の常用パソコンはWindows10だからこちらで回復ドライブを作る。

32GBのUSBディスクは用意してあった。コントロールパネルからシステムとセキュリティ、セキュリティとメンテナンス、回復、回復ドライブの作成、システムファイルを回復ドライブにバックアップします、しばらく準備時間があって、回復ドライブの作成、作成ボタン、回復ドライブを作成中、1時間以上かけた後、回復ドライブの準備ができました、完了ボタン。

LENOVOの電源を入れて間髪を入れずにF1キーを叩く。すんなりBIOS画面が出た。やれやれ。 Primary boot driveをUSBに指定。BIOSからsave&exitで回復ドライブから起動が始まった。

キーボードレイアウトの選択で「Microsoft IME」を選ぶ、続いてオプションの選択でドライブから回復する、このPCを回復していますが出て1時間ほど待つ。

メモリー4GBでCPUも遅いが、まあなんとか動く間は使おう。ハードディスクの調子が悪ければ前に交換用に買っておいたものを使えばよい。とにかくWindowsOSが入っているものは、部品交換してでも使い続けたほうが良い。新しく買えば、12,000円ほどもするのだから。

パソブルのサイトの記載を参考にさせてもらった。

この器械は私の操作ミスでCDドライブを壊してしまった。その後ミニパソコン用に2000円ほどでUSB接続のCDドライブを買ってある。古いCDROMから入れるソフトはこれを使ってインストールできるだろう。

こういう時のために、自分が管理するパソコンは、できるだけWindowsの最新バージョンに近づけることにしている。壊れたパソコンのバージョンがWin7のままだったらスティックパソコンのWin7を使って回復できたかどうか。

1時間ほどで修復が終わりました。キーボードの選択、オプションの選択まで来ましたのでここでUSBメモリを抜きます。オプションは続行(終了してWindows10に進む)、LENOVOのレゴが出た後、Windowsをインストールしていますの表示。30分ほどかかりそうです。

初期設定も終わった。Win10の1909になっている。

ディスクドライブを見ると、えらく使用量が少ない。ドキュメントをみるとファイルゼロ。わーっ、全部消えた。本当にきれいに消えた。自分の作ったファイルが残る方法を選択したはずなのに。やはりデータのバックアップは必要です。
まあ、なくてもいいけど。確かバックアップを取っていたはず。あとで必要になったら探してみよう。

このディスクは、信頼性に疑問。交換したほうがよさそうだ。交換用に買ったものにイメージでコピーして、そしてもう一回クリーンインストールすれは良いだろう。

USB接続で外部ドライブとしてつなぎ、イメージのコピーはWindowsOSからできるらしい。イメージをコピーしたらハードディスクを入れ替えて終わりだ。

ロシアが内閣改造 ラブロフ、ショイグ留任 首相はミシュスティン

プーチンは、ずいぶん余裕が感じられます。

ロシアのメドベージェフ内閣が総辞職を表明、プーチンがこれを受け入れて内閣改造が行われます。

私の最大の関心事項は、なんといっても外務大臣ラブロフの去就。代わってほしくないが、あれだけの激務は少し気の毒。今週もモスクワでリビアの和平協議に出た後夜行便でスリランカに飛び、今日はインドにいる。いくら専用機があると言ってもこれは疲れる。このあとウズベキスタンに寄ってからモスクワに帰っています。

ラブロフは、コロンボに勤めていたことがあるそうです。

現在69歳、留任ですかね。別に外務大臣を置いて、ラブロフが特命でシリアやアフガン、リビアを担当するという形はあると思います。

ロシアには外務大臣の副大臣が何人かいますが、気を付けていても次はこの人だろうと絞り切れません。

ザハロバが、スボークスウーマンから別のポストに就くか。彼女はすでに局長級だそうですからいずれ彼女が外務大臣を務めることがあるかもしれません。いろいろな会議に出ています。ラブロフの下で勉強させられているように感じています。

ショイグ、64歳。彼は留任でしょう。

憲法改正も提案されています。プーチン後を見通した権力の分散でしょう。
It is an attempt to transform a super-centralized personified system of power into a more balanced and diversified one… with a strong president but not as strong as today.

首相は、国税局長?のミハイル・ミシュスティンだそうです。内政と外交を分担するんですね。

ラブロフとショイグは留任です。ザハロバも動かなかったようです。

President Vladimir Putin has approved the new government after the resignation of the previous cabinet calling it balanced. Although there was a significant reshuffle, defense, foreign and finance ministers kept their posts.

"The new government is a well-balanced one, although it went through a major reshuffle," Putin said during a meeting with the new cabinet.

Both Sergey Lavrov and Sergey Shoigu are political heavyweights and among the most trusted political figures in Russia, trailing only behind President Putin himself when it comes to popularity with the public. Anton Siluanov has been Russia's finance minister since 2018.

A career diplomat with decades of experience in international relations, Lavrov served as Russia’s envoy to the UN for ten years before taking the helm at the Foreign Ministry in 2004.

He led Russian diplomacy through turbulent periods on the international stage and has been instrumental in building Moscow's reputation as an influential global power in recent years.

Shoigu, meanwhile, is credited with strengthening and modernizing Russia's Armed Forces through a set of ambitious reforms to increase combat readiness and spearheading a massive rearmament program to equip forces with cutting-edge weapons.

Russian political earthquake: Putin sets out plan for Kremlin departure & Medvedev resigns
They say life comes at you fast. A seemingly routine ‘state-of-the-nation’ address by Vladimir Putin unexpectedly turned into one of the most memorable afternoons in recent Russian political history.

On Wednesday, Russia’s government resigned. Dmitry Medvedev departed the political frontline, Vladimir Putin effectively confirmed he will leave the presidency at the end of his present term, and Mikhail Mishustin became the new Russian prime minister. As Van Morrison once crooned, there will be days like this.

And it’s only the 15th of January. A week after Russians observed Orthodox Christmas, and a fortnight since they celebrated New Year, it didn't take long for real business to resume.

In the morning, Mishustin was so unknown outside of Russia that he didn’t even have an English language Wikipedia page. And his profile inside the country was minor, beyond the world of political and administrative wonks.

But there’s no doubt he’s an effective manager. As the head of the Russian tax service he’s been a tremendous success. Revenues have risen by around 20 percent under his watch despite only a 2 percent rise in the tax burden itself. Indeed, only last year the Financial Times dubbed him the “taxman of the future” for his role in rebuilding Russia’s tariff collection system into one of the most advanced and efficient in the world.

No mean feat in a country where tax avoidance was once, pretty much, a sort of national sport.

A native Muscovite, Mishustin, like Putin himself an avid hockey player, has been described as a “little known political figure in Russia… a bureaucrat, someone to get the job done.”

But the same sort of description could have been applied to Putin himself in 1999, and here were are, 21 years later.
Long goodbye

Today, the president set out the roadmap for his exit from the Kremlin, more-or-less kicking off the build-up to the transition of power. He will step down in 2024, or perhaps even earlier, and he intends to dismantle the “hyper-Presidential” system which allowed him to wield so much control in office. This was introduced by Boris Yeltsin in 1993 with American support, after he had used tanks to fire on the Parliament.

Putin plans to give more powers to the latter body, with the prime minister, in particular, enjoying more authority. He also wants to bulk up the role of the State Council. Indeed, he will probably end up there himself after leaving office, in some sort of “elder statesman” role. The body will consist of heads of Russian regions and members of the Presidential Administration. It seems it will fulfill an advisory function.

To achieve these goals, Putin wants to reduce presidential powers and introduce a two-term limit. This would mean a maximum of 12 years in the Kremlin; he has already been there for 16. The broad vision is to have more checks and balances, with a weaker presidency and other branches of government strengthened.

Make no mistake, Putin’s goal is to preserve the system which he inherited from Yeltsin, and then tweaked. For all its faults, after a difficult birth it has given Russians the greatest freedom and prosperity they have ever known. Even if much work remains to be done on distributing economic gains more fairly.
Past precedent

Putin's place in history would then be much the same as Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s in America, a unique four-term president who repaired the country after a financial & social catastrophe (in Russia's case the Soviet collapse and the disastrous 1990s). This also fits with what insiders in Moscow frequently point out: Putin wants to be remembered well by history. A status enjoyed by relatively few Russian leaders.

One notable suggestion is that future presidents must have lived in Russia for 25 continuous years before taking office, and have never held a foreign passport or residency permit. This would bar a lot of the Western-leaning Moscow opposition from running. Not to mention a large swathe of Russian liberals, a great many of whom have lived abroad at some point. Interestingly, if this rule had existed in 2000 Vladimir Putin himself wouldn't have been able to become Russia's president. He lived in Germany from 1985-1990 (albeit on state duty).

The proposed changes will likely be made after public votes on them, to ensure broad consent. Even though they could be passed by the Duma. Rumors suggest it may be held in September.

Putin also addressed many domestic concerns in his speech today. He promised the increase of salaries for teachers and more childcare facilities, introduced free hot lunches for children in the initial four school years and extended child benefit by 48 months.

As for Medvedev, he hasn’t been cast aside. Instead, the former president has been moved to a semi-ceremonial, but still prestigious, role ending a twelve-year “tandem” where he governed Russia with Putin. It would be a mistake to write him off politically, but it would be surprising if he wields the same clout again.

As they shook hands, and Medvedev left the Kremlin for the final time as prime minister, Putin told him “not everything worked out, but it's never the case that everything works out.”

Nevertheless, Putin will hope “everything works out” for the eventual power transition in Russia. A process that has now begun.

ジョン・マケインの妻がエプスタンについて言及し軽蔑される

シンディ・ヘンスリー・マケインは、戦争屋ジョン・マケインの妻

Who, exactly? Cindy McCain says ‘WE’ all knew about Epstein’s sex crimes
Cindy McCain, widow of the late Arizona Senator John McCain, has raised more than a few eyebrows after remarking that Jeffrey Epstein's horrific crimes against young women were common knowledge. But common for whom, exactly?

Speaking at a conference in Florida, McCain claimed that a girl from her daughter’s high school was one of Epstein’s victims, and said that she hoped the accused sex trafficker –who allegedly killed himself while in detention at a Manhattan prison– was “in hell.”

Her uncontroversial condemnation of the shadowy multi-millionaire was followed by a rather more curious statement.

“Epstein was hiding in plain sight,” said Cindy McCain. “We all knew about him. We all knew what he was doing, but we had no one that was – no legal aspect that would go after him. They were afraid of him. For whatever reason, they were afraid of him.”

She didn’t elaborate, leaving many on social media to speculate on what she meant.

If McCain knew about Epstein she should have come forward, noted numerous Twitter users. Inaction and silence led to “trafficked, sexually assaulted kids & adults” paying the price, one unimpressed commenter argued.

McCain only spoke out against Epstein “after he [was] dead,” read a similarly scornful reply to her comments.

Well if SHE knew, she could have said something. She did NOTHING, nobody did anything. And those poor trafficked, sexually assaulted kids & adults paid the price!! Shame on her!! #complicit
4:48 AM - Jan 25, 2020

Epstein’s purported suicide in August occurred as he awaited trial on sex-trafficking charges, more than a decade after receiving a 'sweetheart deal' from the government for soliciting prostitution from a minor.

Surveillance footage from last July showing an earlier alleged suicide attempt by Epstein was inexplicably deleted, after first being reported lost then later found.
