  1. The OS data is not stored on a partition but is stored on a VHD. Your other data can be stored anywhere, another partition or another drive.
  2. humm.. is he coffeefriend or coffeefeind?

  3. You need to REPURPOSE the New command buttons. Search on this. You'll have to assign the repurposed macro to the ribbon by customizing the ribbon. See pinned topic on how to modify the ribbon by me. Can't help much more than that since I haven't had a need to repurpose commands but I believe that's what you're looking for and can be found by googling!
  4. I think XP doesn't have drivers to recognize VHD hard drive at boot. It can after it has booted.
  5. Which drive letter are you trying to mount to? Perhaps there is a conflict with the drive letter assignment. I always change my virtual drive letter to "V" for virtual with UltraISO. I use a "portable" UltraISO (I installed it in VM and copied all files from Program Files folder to another location and it works without having to install. The virtual drive mounting also works without install. It just requires to be run as administrator. Are you running UltraISO as admin?
  6. Use ccleaner to clean your computer and also check the startup apps in ccleaner and disable those that can be.
  7. I use InfraRecorder. I believe, right now, it's the only one available as a native 64-bit app (they also have a 32-bit). And it's portable. No need to install. And yes, it's FREE.
  8. There are 2 features not available in VHD boot as far as I know: calculating the Windows Experience Index and hibernation. If these are important, than I recommend not. Otherwise, it's all the same. Some people say there's a performance degradation but I've never seen that when beta testing.
  9. Oh snap! I missed that. In the RC, they had taken it out. They added it back to RTM and I never knew it.
  10. I thought I was the only person who cared about that feature, considering how little airtime its removal seems to be getting ... Well, what a surprise! Although the option is gone from Folder Settings, the good-old registry tweak from XP still works in Windows 7. Just merge this to your registry and you get back "Restore Previous Folders at Logon". Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 ;Restore Explorer Windows at Logon [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced] "PersistBrowsers"=dword:00000001
  11. Perhaps this is what you're looking for: go to network and sharing options. click on "advanced sharing settings" on left. under HomeGroup connections, change to "User user accounts ...." This will allow you to share more folders than that in your homegroup list.
  12. I had this problem on an XP machine. I searched for it and it turned out that a particular service what not running. Look into your services. I searched for services for XP which should be running by default to configure the services. Maybe you can find default services for Win 7 and reconcile those for you machine.
  13. To be honest, setting the workgroup doesn't do anything for a home network. You can have different computers set to different workgroup names and still you can access each computer. In Windows 7, I think you're problem might be - you need to change password-level access to user-level access. This will allow you to have the same username on different computers access files on different computers without entering a password. This setting is in the network and homegroups settings somewhere buried in there. Right now, I can give you exact location but look in there and change password level to user account level access (something like that).
  14. MBSA uses Microsoft Update as it can scan for Office security updates along with IE8, .Net, etc - pretty much all MS software. Difference is, MBSA only shows security updates, not the optional and WGA updates that might be specific to your computer/hardware. For example, if I use Windows Update in Win 7, it will show me update for my printer driver and application compatibility update. Using MBSA, it doesn't care about printer driver and compatibility updates.
