if your Computers Hard Drive has failed you can boot from USB On Windows:

Every Windows PC is different, but once you get into your system’s boot menu you should be able to find what you’re looking for. To boot from a CD or USB drive:

Restart your computer and wait for that first screen to pop up. Often, it’ll say something like “Press F12 to Choose Boot Device” somewhere on the screen. Press that key now.
Give it a moment to continue booting, and you should see a menu pop up with a list of choices on it. Highlight your CD or USB drive and press Enter.
Alternatively, you can set your computer to always check for a bootable CD or USB drive. That way, when you have one inserted, it’ll boot from it automatically, and when you don’t, it’ll head into your regular operating system. To set this up, follow these instructions:

Restart your computer and watch for the first screen that shows up when you boot. You should see something that says “Press DEL to enter setup,” or something similar. Press the noted key on your keyboard and wait for setup to start.
You should see a new screen pop up, called your BIOS.

Select Boot device from the menu, then

Choose USB-HDD instead and press Enter. You may need to use the Page Up and Page Down keys to move your selection to the top of a list, instead.
Exit out of your BIOS, saving your changes. Usually, this option is under “Exit” on the main menu, or available via a keyboard shortcut listed somewhere on your screen.

Your computer should reboot. Make sure your USB drive is in your computer. If you’re prompted to “Press any key to boot from USB,” do so. Your computer should boot into the USB drive instead of your normal operating system.

Why we need FOG

From part of my new Book “Why we need FOG”

The 2016 elections have been hacked all voters tracked and our home PC’s running Russian security software make us all vulnerable to a massive bot-net attack from our own IOT Smart Home Devices. In order to secure the US elections and US Economy we must add a FOG layer of networking to our home & Corporate internet. All new IOT devices must be screened for foreign security malware and it must be removed before installing in your home or Business. All IOT smart devices communicating directly to clouds are vulnerable.
 
A Fog network layer is pictured above. Next we need our home Automation and Smart devices to be enabled to do Fog Computing via a local Fog Computing mesh topology. Back haul to the Cloud must be done only over a secured DTN protocol. All Home Automation and AI must happen within our own FOG networks to be trusted. Financial systems within our FOG networks must be established via Cryptocurrencies similar to Bitcoin but without Mining. Crypto settlement must be secured locally with a Fog community block chain. Fog Blockchains must settle with larger Crypto communities and have a liability to consider of their own members requirements. Total Transparency is also needed and expected to keep all honest. Home Medical devices and wearables must only write to our own secured Personal Health records and retained in the FOG network until approved by our Doctors. This data should not go to each Manufacture of wearable medical devices and be subject to thousands of different terms of service. A standard model like the VA’s Blue button will be used to collect and make portable all personal Health records. The Patient must own their own PHR and EMR so sharing with researchers is easy as a opt-in. Local communities can each set up their own and people are free to join Fog networks as they need or are referred.
