    Skyline Severed It's worth noting that the achievement(s) won't pop unless the PC Status reads "Ready to boot" in green. I was able to boot to the OS with a tower that wasn't properly put back together (Incomplete case in PC Status), and nothing popped. It was picky stuff like making sure the HDD bay was pushed back in, as well as the PCI lock being in place.
