  1. ^I'd rather have non-virtual drives. That why I bought 2 harddrives (a 400 and a 500GB)


    Gparted is a free equivalent of Partition Magic. From what I know, it is not a boot manager (I might be wrong here, or maybe you were told about "Grub" or "Lilo" instead).

    +If you intend to give each OS its own primary partition and for some a swap partition or common data partitions, you have a little "overcrowd"problem. "Ranish Partition Manager" can get around that but it was made long ago and I don't know if it will recognise your disk as it runs under DOS.


    Well tell me any program (freeware or shareware) that will allow me to boot 3 OS's on each of my harddrives.

    Thanks in advance,


    And how about booting from 2 harddrives (I learnt that I can only boot 4 on one HD) so I want to have 3 on each drive.

    I have a 400GB & a 500GB.

    Please tell me if this is alright,

    Thanks in advance,


  2. Hello!

    I was told on another program that to sec-boot my computer, it would be best to use a program called G-Parted... do I need a program?

    Is that a good program?

    It is for the following OS's;

    1. Solaris

    2. Ubuntu

    3. Vista (ultimate)

    4. XP (dunno, XP or Pro)

    5. Mac OSX Leopard

    6. Novell Linux SUSE

    All on one 500GB Hard-Drive. I am thinking of giving each 83GB, but they will probably be less due to lost space.

    Please tell me what I should do!

    Thanks in advance,


    PS: No, I haven't finished my computer build yet, I just need a graphics card which I will be getting tomorrow.

  3. At home no, my wife would have a hissy fit.

    At work yes, I'm a domain admin so every time I leave my desk. I keep a shortcut to "Lock Workstation" in my quicklaunch.

    %windir%\System32\rundll32.exe user32.dll,LockWorkStation

    It would be much quicker to just use startkey + L

    (startkey + E is explorer & startkey + R is run)


  4. YAY! Thanks!

    Um... can you please try and put this one feature that is in nuno peralta (vista messenger - skin) for 8.1 into whatever your skin will be for 8.5?

    The one thing is under the (well in-between) the two user pics (one yours, the other whoever you were talking to) with the icons to change status?

    Thanks in advance,


    PS: Here is a screenshot of what vista messenger skin looks like (the part I want you to copy): messengernh0.jpg

  5. Hello!

    My vista computer (not the one I am building at the moment) has recently (as of 2 or 3 days ago) started freezing. Sometime after a few minutes on the computer, sometimes straight away & sometime only after a few hours.


    ^My specs. (I'm pretty sure it's up to date, I have 7600GS Graphics Card, 80GB Harddrive, Windows Vista Ultimate)

    The only software that I have installed recently was about a week ago, and that was just the new version of msn (and the mess patch, and msgplus patch).

    Please help me out here.

    Thanks in advance,


  6. Hello!

    Guess what?

    Today I bought all the parts that I need to build my computer!

    They had everything (or equivilents) that I needed, in stock. So all is good! Except, they didn't have the 8800GT, they say that they will have that in next week or the week after, but if I get some real progress done, I will just get it from somewhere else! :rolleyes:

    Anyways, here is the list of what I bought;

    Motherboard: ASUS P5K P35

    Graphics Card: Nvidia 8800GT (I'll be getting this soon, I don't have it yet!)

    CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 (2.4Ghz)

    Hard Drives: SATA Maxtor 500GB

    Optical Drives: Aopen 20x SATA Black DVD Writer

    Power Supply: T.P.3 Trio Antec True Power 3 Trio PSU

    Memory (RAM): A-DATA 2GB Kit (2x1GB) DDR2 800 640

    Case: Antec P182 without PSU

    CPU Cooling: Zalman CNPS 9700LED

    Hope you think it's good!

    If you think any of the stuff won't work with eachother please tell me!
