  1. well, i was mainly replying to the creator of the thread who states he gets a BSOD... since you replied, i think you'll find there is, you just don't know how to see it... as the computer is booting up, press the F8 key and you should get a Startup Menu with things like SAFE MODE, etc, etc. In that list, there should be DISBALE AUTOMATIC RESTART ON SYSTEM FAILURE or similar, select that, then it will show the BSOD instead of just restarting...
  2. Is it possible to have concurrent logins with Vista??? specifically Home Premium??? i remember there was a hack with XP to do it... anyone have any ideas? i like being able to Remote Desktop into my HTPC to do stuff while the TV is running, etc...
  3. what version of Vista are you using??? ie, Beta, RC, RTM or full (which you shouldn't have ) many of the older versions of Vista would not work when installed on a SATA drive which is using a RAID controller, even if you are not using RAID... and can you actually give us the error code on the BSOD, they put them there for a reason...
  4. if you want to run the WinME Setup, you need to make CD SHELL run a dos boot disk and do it that way... i have WinME, 98SE, 2000, XP + Multible boot disks on my DVD...
  5. I WORKED IT OUT!!!! well, for me anyway... the issue was using the CDIMAGE.EXE file to compile the ISO image... i follow the instructions here http://www.winsupersite.com/showcase/windo...stream.asp#nero to use NERO (using the loader.bin file instead of the Microsoft Corp.img file) to burn it without creating an ISO... obviously that website isn't talking about multiboot disks, but its the same process for the burning and adding the boot loader for it...
  6. i don't have any other bootable DVDs to try...UBCD and Acronis True Image work fine...they are burnt on cheapo media and are covered in scratches, etc...
  7. yeah i get the "press any key", but not when i get the error message... like i said...i tried el cheapo disks and i tried TDK's, both do the same on the LG/ASUS drives, work fine on Pioneer LiteOn, etc... i might try a smaller one, but i don't think that has anything to do with it... and i work in a retail computer store as a tech...i've tried on every kind of computer we have...can be indentical systems, just different DVD drive... but i'll have a look at CD shell too, see if anyone there has an idea...i think i remember them having a forum...
  8. Ok, i've made myself a MultiBoot DVD with XP home, Pro, MCE, winMe, 98se, 2000, memtest, etc, etc... all works great...EXCEPT, when i try to boot a machine using an LG or ASUS DVD Drive...when i do, i get ERROR : CANNOT BOOT FROM CD/DVD [...................] or something similar...on other drives such as LiteOn and Pioneer, no problemo! now, i have tried burning the DVD on an LG and Pioneer Drive, using both el cheapo and also TDK DVD's...all give the exact same problem... so, i looks like it might have something to do with the bootsector on the DVD... does that sound right??? i followed Flyakite's Multiboot Guide.... any ideas????
  9. huh??? wat do you want??? are you talking about AUTOPATCHER????????????????????????
  10. Media Center is just a program that runs in the Windows XP Pro environment...except for a few extra services... if you go into device manager, does it show up AT ALL???
  11. here are MS's recomendations CPU: 1.6GHz without software encoding and 3.0GHz with software encoding HDD: 60GB + RAM: 512MB GPU RAM: 128MB DDR Recordable DVD Drive Broadband Ready even so, he has a supported video card, so the menu should look fine...he might have issues trying to watch/record digital tv, but it should look ok...
  12. have you installed the AMD Driver from the AMD website??? i have seem people with Dual Cores that need to install that driver before the system works properly...
  13. he might be refering to the program AUTOPATCHER... as, there is a WinXP version, but not a MCE version... thats all i can think of....
