You don't have an extra machine? Your situation is a good example of why it's good to pick up a cheap spare machine in case you ever need one. My main computer is a Dell with an i5 processor. I have a 3 GHz Gateway where I have all my music backed up. I buy and sell stuff online for a living so I absolutely positively need a backup machine. You could get something running XP for $50 that would work fine as a backup machine.
