  1. Has anyone had any problems with sata hotswap in 7? Not 100% sure if the problem is with my motherboard (Asus P5B Deluxe) or windows 7. If i boot up with the drive connected, all is good. I can successfully unmount it with the usb icon in the taskbar, but the drive isn't seen by the system when I connect it while the pc is on. thoughts?
  2. Someone please correct me if i'm wrong but... goto gpedit.msc on the TS Server and find the area (under COMPUTER) where it has "Allow logon via terminal services". from there u can select which groups can logon over RDP.
  3. Okay, so I created this VBS file that executes at RunonceEx after XP installs. It copies all the files from the installation source (dynamically gets the source location from the reg key "SourcePath") to C:\Windows\Cabs. Option Explicit Dim WSHShell, RegKey, Sourcepath, Result, fso Set WSHShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell") Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") RegKey = "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup\" Sourcepath = WSHShell.RegRead (regkey & "SourcePath") fso.CreateFolder("c:\Windows\Cabs") fso.CopyFolder Sourcepath & "*", "c:\Windows\Cabs\",TRUE WSHShell.RegWrite regkey & "Sourcepath", "C:\Windows\Cabs", "REG_SZ" WSHShell.RegWrite regkey & "ServicePackSourcepath", "C:\Windows\Cabs", "REG_SZ" When this runs, all I see is a cmd prompt...then it goes away when its done. What I need help with is how to get a Progress Bar to display the file copy process so you have an idea how much time is left. Any thoughts?
  4. Apologies if this has already been posted - couldn't find it using search.... I have XP SP3 installed on my laptop and whenever i launch Outlook 2003, it always prompts for passwords - even if i check "Remember password". This happens on many computers around the office... Anyone have any thoughts?
  5. We have a Server 2003 Terminal Services environment for our developers and recently we have been having some issues with files being locked somehow. eg. Dev 1 creates some swfs in flash and tells Dev 2 to have a look. Dev 2 cannot open, copy or do anything with the file (even though Dev 1 has closed the program and even logged off). When they initiate the file copy, nothing happens, then a few min later the file copy dialog comes up...but it never copies. This is not limited to flash files, it started happening with excel spreadsheets. Anyone have any thoughts? thanks!
  6. From what I read... I recall seeing a portion of the agreement that says you CAN have an offline DR server without purchasing an additional license. Essentially this DR server must be off, except in the case of updating and/or data transfer and testing of backups.
  7. Yea... i looked thru it with orca for a good few hrs and found nothing...
  8. Read the middle line.... I can't get a hold of the media to recreate the admin install.
  9. So our company was given a new VLK corp key for office 2003 as it seems our original got leaked online somehow. I've spent a few days trying to get a hold of the CDs for the original package but cannot seem to find them anywhere. Is there any way to change the key we currently use in the admin install to the new serial?
  10. Just an FYI... Don't slipstream SP3 into XP in vista... weird things happen. I was slipstreaming it into our corp xp cd on vista and our VLK wasn't working when i was trying an install.
  11. My bad... didn't see him state scsi but i guess it was implied... I agree with the imaging... it would keep the shares as well.
  12. I'm pretty sure that so long as you copy the files to another NTFS drive... the permissions will remain. The shares on the other hand...i think you may loose them. So just format a 250GB usb drive and transfer the data, swap the arrays drives and re transfer the data. I'd recommend you purchase 500GB or 750GB drives so you won't have to deal with this for a long time.
  13. VLK installations dont need to be activated. Therefore MS isn't notified when you install a VLK version of XP. VLK in xp is kind of a "good will" thing where MS trusts that a company will only install xp on computers they licensed - they don't count your activations (I believe they do with vista now in corp environments) Even IF you were using like a retail copy of XP, you could install it thousands of times on your pc and you wouldn't have problems activating it. Your boss is wrong. It is 1 license per Computer. NOT per installation.
  14. Awesome job.... Just curious... what did you write this app in?
  15. What we (I) did was our master computer is a VM so i have about 4 different VMs for different stages. So basically when more updates come out, i simply boot up the VM and update it, then image it. Obviously that may be tedious at times... but as you cant apply updates like vista... thats the only real option. Aside from that, yea you could have the updates applied at startup... or during the sysprep
  16. It probably has to do with the speed of the memory... in my old system I had 2gb of memory (ddr 400mhz) and my score was around 4. When I threw in dual channel ddr2 pc7200, it went to 5.4. What are the speeds of both sticks?
  17. Think your a big man eh kartel??? Just u wait till I duct-tape a bunch of my dual core cpu's together...then we'll see who's boss....
  18. Yeup, I over clocked my memory, video card, and yes...even double the voltage runnin to my harddrive... check out my score. LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! On a serious note....I take it scores don't go past 5.9? cause I noticed some lower-end vid cards are matched to mine...which stupifies me... Ah well...Gotta love MS Paint.
  19. This is my rating...Planning on OCing cpu and memory.
  20. Just givin' those with MSDN subscriptions a heads up that office 2007 is there and downloadable. WOOOO No Vista yet tho...
  21. MSDN Subscribers wait 1-7 days after the product has rtm'd. Frankly too long. lol BAHAHAHA I love that word
  22. Vista / Office 2007 RTM to be visible on MSDN within 7 days.... I WANT IT NOW!!!
  23. Thanks Gents. I'll give em a try when i get home.
  24. I previously had a 4 x 40gig raid5 setup in xp. I just bought 2 250gb drives and feel raid 1 is a little extreme as i only want some things backed up. I'm looking for a type of file/folder sync program that I can use to copy certain folders to my second 250gb drive - preferrably one that is scheduled. I thought about just running a batch to copy all files over and not overwrite existing (to save copying over 100gigs of big files that never change), but some files would be updated (such as unattended install files). Anyone have any pointers?
