I was upgrading my Vortexbox Appliance and things went south very quickly. Rather than try and get a monitor and keyboard to troubleshoot I think its time to just buy a new machine. I need tips on something that can be bought on Amazon or BestBuy for a quick fix. I have about 500gb of tunes that will be stored.

Buy old monitor and keyboard at goodwill store for $5. Insert vb 2.0 iso into vba drive. Install vb. copy files back to vb. back in business in a few hours? What am I missing?

Didn't think about goodwill. Thanks for the tip!

Garage sales often have old monitors and keyboards cheap. Heck, entire 5 year old computers for $25.
