Thanks so much. I'm a 61-year-old newbie, and managed to do this successfully (the first time) all by myself.
I would have one favor to ask: Where you wrote "Right-click on the downloaded file and open the image with WinRar," may I suggest that you specify which of the FOUR files we just downloaded it refers to? Ie, "Right-click on the downloaded bootable cwm (220.127.116.11) file and open the image with WinRar."
Nice job. MUCH appreciated!
