  1. With my technet it generates keys for retail ver of Win7 but only 1 key for Enterprise. Does this mean i can use it on multiple machines?
  2. I would get this error on certain machines and sometimes not others. After a bunch of ours I found that certain spaces or characters would cause this in the description. Things like ( or . and or line spaces after pressing enter would cause this error. So check your descriptions and don't make it too fancy! Hope this helps some of you out!
  3. Very interesting. I've been very interested in hard drive performance ever since i got my first comps. I was pretty appalled with Vista's copy performance, but Sp1 seems to optimized it a bit better. Win7 seems much better. I'm currently going through Mark Russinovich's Inside Windows to get a better knowledge of whats going on deep in windows. I'm going to try do a few tests myself with XP, Vista, and 7beta. I have a huge bunch of hard drives including Fujitsu 15k MAUs, Seagate 15k.3s, 7200.9, 7200.10, 7200.11, Hitachi 1TB, WD 1TB Green, WD Blacks and Scorpio. Would be interesting if i can get some consistent results. Any tips on what kind of tools i should use? I've been using Teracopy for a while, but 2.0 doesn't let you change buffer sizes easily anymore. I've tried all the other copy tools, but always go back to teracopy.
  4. The RAID feature in server Windows is pretty good. Its not very robust at all, but it creates a simple RAID that can be transfered to any other Windows server or any XP machine with 2 replaced files, no drivers or real incompatibilities to mess around with. Anyone know if Vista has this or any way to enable it? Thanks!
  5. My comp only comes with a restore disc and i only have an image of the corporate XP from the internet. What can i do to use the key that came with my comp?
  6. I think it has something to do with the driver packs but can't find anything about it. After everything is installed and first login everything is blue and MakePNF.exe seems to cause it to stall. If i cntrlaltdel to the taskmanager and end it everything loads and is fine after that. Anyone know what could cause this? It happens in VMWare and regular computer installs.
  7. After working on this for an hour i've found all the instances where it will appear, no need to unregister dlls. [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Copy To] [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Move To] [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\CopyMoveTo] [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\CopyMoveTo] [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\CopyMoveTo]
  8. Ryan update his pack about a week ago finally after his RAID crashed, check it out
  9. I heard they redid the network neighborhood. Is it faster now?
  10. Western Digital has gotten extremely weird about their warranties. Retail drives, unless they are raptors are all 1 year. Only OEM JB SE drives have 3 years. Its better to stick with Seagtes they all have 5 years now no matter what. I perfer a company who sticks by their products for 5 years not fuss or fine print. I just got a 400GB its smoking fast.
  11. There are like 7 folders in the driver set, what can i consolidate to the OEM driver folder?
  12. All i hear are problems with 9. Are there any reasons to upgrade it from 8?
  13. i heard good things about 98 how it slimmed it down to like 50MB, i hear XP lite can slim down XP to almost half its original size. Anyone try it? Also would be nice if you can somehow incorporate it into unattended http://www.litepc.com/xplite.html
