  1. I suppose many (if not most) of the Windows 7/8/8.1 percentages are from users who bought a new PC and didn't really have a choice but to use one of these newer OSs. I wonder what the statistic would look like if those people would have had XP as a choice.

    Why would only THOSE people be stuck with what they bought ? This works both ways;

    I suppose many (if not most) of the Windows XP percentages are from users who bought a new PC and didn't really have a choice but to use that newer OS. I wonder what the statistic would look like if those people would have had Win98 as a choice.

     

    Or rather,...

    I suppose many (if not most) of the Windows XP percentages are from users who have an old PC and don't really have a choice but to stick with it. I wonder what the statistic would look like if those people (with hardware from 2006-2009) would have an upgrade to Windows 7 as a choice.

  2. Thanks,I removed the hard drive from the machine,and I ordered an SCSI wire to plug into a working computer.Today apparently the continuous beeping stopped.It's quite weird.

     

    I should be able to connect the hard drive to a seperate computer(as external)and get my files out.Just I don't want to damage everything else,as I probably will knock everything out while getting the drive out. :whistle:

    Is it like Groundhog Day ?

  3. Nothing works!

     

    That's a very poor description of your problem. Are we supposed to guess if you have difficulties with nLite, with installing from USB (or "on USB"???) or if the problem is your specific laptop or if it's because you use XP64?

    What do you expect that "all together plugin for nLite" to accomplish ?

    Don't reply here, please open an other thread with minimal description of what ever you've done up to now and where you're stuck.

  4. I have put the xp install files from the disk in the root of my hdd (I think) but no matter what I do it wants to grab everything.

    I hope you mean "in its own folder" on the root.

    like c:\nlited_XP\i386  ...etc

    Also create a other folder (NOT in the \nlited_XP\ folder from my example above) for each driver you want to add, nLite grabs everything that's next to the .inf file AND subfolders.

  5. Well, man, man, man.. what a PITA this was. Jaclaz, to take your example in post #5, the situation I faced was not even in your possibilities. The engineers at Sharp had an other philosophy. In fact moving a channel downwards would come to your "d" example but moving a channel up would just leave an empty slot ! The logic of the TV is that it places the element you select in the place you select and after asking for confirmation, it shifts the channel that was previously there one place up (and on and on). But when you move up, the leaving place is not taken!

    For instance if I wanted to switch 1 and 3, If I selected "3" and place it in 1, it would ask me "this place is already taken, do you want top move the channel that's there?" ..Yes please! it would put 3 in 1st place, shift "1" in 2 and shift "2" in 3 (that is free) and stop there. Good !

    But if I tried the same thing by selecting "1" and move it to 3,  I'd end up (after confirmation I want to free place 3) with nothing in 1, "2" in 2, old "1" in 3, and old 3 in 4 and so on! Which obviously shifts ALL my channels list with no way of getting them back down! And that got me mad from the 1st minute. :realmad:  It took me hours!

    Still mad after a night of sleep. I'm going to have a coffee now. :boring:

  7. I am pretty sure there must be a way to find also non contiguous sequences. :unsure:

    Yes, I listed 37 ! :hello:

    You know what... I think any method will be flawed anyway. The fact I'm ignoring more than half the channels will make the pseudo optimization irrelevant.

    If I get it right, the idea is to keep channels that are in the LIS and move the other ones around, which makes sense if you have a place for all channels, but here i'll have more channels to move "out" than channels I want to move forward. Even if ignoring the last 2. (I have digital HD channels, then digital channels for which a part is redondant and a part is crypted, then radios most of which are crypted or for which I don' care then I have analog channels which are all but 2 redondant.

    Wish me patience.
