  1. Are you trying to speed your system up? Other than several milli seconds off your boot up time (can't do much anyway while it boots except watch it.), where is the speed boost? Once they are loaded into memory there is zero to none in loss of performance. Check the processor times in this screen shot... I see many with 1, 2, or 3 seconds of total CPU time. In a 24 hour period there are 86,400 total seconds... I don't really think a couple of seconds here and there is really going to boost your system speed.
  2. There is an easier way here... don't turn the computer on. You have turned too much off...
  3. Thinking like this is why we have WGA...
  4. I run a Java app that is 52% faster on x64 than x86. This app runs 24X7 and takes the CPU to 99%. It does make a huge difference.
  5. One desktop and one portable (laptop). Read the Office ELUA.
  6. So the extra 1MB of L2 cache in the Opteron 170 makes no difference?
  7. Remote access to SBS is secure either using Remote Desktop (encrypted RDP) or through Remote Web Workplace which uses https://
  8. There is no OEM transfer allowed. The XP OEM install lives and dies on the original hardware to which it is pre installed on. HDs can be replaced but the motherboards which are usually proprietary can't be easily swapped out . They want you to purchase a new system...
  9. Let's not leave out Windows 2003 R2. With the new DFS (Distributed File System) you can simplify file sharing acrous your entire domain (multi sites). DFS allows you to create a single namespace for file shares that are located on different servers, redirecting remote users as required to the correct physical locations. Among other niceties, DFS is site aware: Based on the IP address of the user accessing a DFS share, DFS will ensure that they're using the closest possible DFS server. Abstraction in DFS is important for a variety of reasons, but the most obvious is that administrators can move shared folders to different locations, even on different servers, without disrupting or even informing users of the change. FRS has been succeeded by a new DFS 2 technology called DFS Replication. DFS Replication uses a multimaster replication model that allows DFS-based data to be replicated more efficiently over the network than was possible with FRS. A good part of this efficiency is due to a new technology called Remote Differential Compression (RDC) that replicates only those parts of a file that have changed, dramatically lowering network bandwidth. If you change the title in a PowerPoint presentation, only that title change will be replicated across DFS, not the entire file. This is far more efficient and, ultimately, less expensive.
  10. You will never be able to install X64 running in a 32-bit environment. You must boot from the ISO you burned either with Nero or Magic ISO or any other ISO burning program. If none of that works then order the trial CD form MS directly. If you don't have more than one partition then you will overwrite anything on your single partition. BTW, RAID 1 would be better than RAID 0 with only 2 drives.
  11. Not if your running a 1TB database in memory... that is the advantage of 64-bit!
  12. It will be code complete by the end of Feb. 2006, from then on it's bugs, fit and finish.
  13. Nope. If you want SharePoint Services you will have to run it on IIS6 and a 2003 Server. Have fun coding...
  14. Turned out to be a damaged disk. Adobe is sending out another one.
  15. You can add all the member servers you like, even a secondary Domain Controller but everything is controlled by a single SBS box. The first operations master role holders are assigned automatically when the first domain controller when a given domain is created. The two forest-level roles (schema master and domain naming master) are assigned to the first domain controller created in a forest. Technically that is why SBS cannot join another forest or domain.
  16. The difference is quite simple. AMD employs Direct Connect which is a direct connection between multicores or multi CPUs and the system memory. Intel still employs a MCH (Memory Controller Hub) and a slow FSB (Front Side Bus) between cores or multi CPUs and all IO inputs. This is why most Intel CPUs generally clock higher. They have to make up for the slower FSB and MCH constraints.
  17. Trying to mix old with new... never a good idea. Could be a permissions issue if NTFS on your XP machine is trying to map to a 98 FAT32 drive. Since 98 can't open or run Office 2003 documents or applications... this could be your trouble. I never ran 98 and up (SE or Me) so I can't say for sure. Try saving your Office 2003 docs in an older compatable format. I use Outlook 2003 with Exchange 2003 and I have not seen or used a better email client. Spam in my Inbox has decreased to almost nothing. Maybe a single spam per week if that.
  18. There is no way for you to obtain a single VLK license legally.
  19. Converting Basic disks to Dynamic is one way only without data loss. Converting Dynamic back to Basic will reformat the drive and all data will be lost. In XP there is no "scandisk." It is chkdsk and you want to use it with the /R option.
  20. No. It is a function of Exchange 2003 in SBS 2003.
  21. Not to mention the Intel bottleneck with the outdated FSB and memory controller hub...
  22. You can add as many different networks as you like. Just hack the registry. It will look like this: One for DHCP and two different subnets. I just plug the laptop into any of the three networks and I connect automatically. Nothing to switch.
  23. 4500 PCs and not on a Domain??? That should priority one. Then take advantage of Group Policy. No need for scripts...
