  1. that may help with networking the 2 machines together and share the resource but windows will not see the mac formatted partition and i dont think time machine will backup to a remote device other than a time capsule
  2. It depends on the game I have recently installed Command & Conquer 3 and red alert 3 on vista ult x64 and x86 which both systems do not have desktop icons or start menu icons
  3. When you have the file put it in the root of the dvd folder or on a usb drive in the root folder which should be picked up when you start the install
  4. I would never say that Vista is impossible to get rid of ... 1st of all have you checked the BIOS settings to ensure that the cd rom is the 1st bootable device. If so try booting the machine with the XP CD in the drive and you should get a prompt asking if you would press any key to start from the disk
  5. Theres 2 Tools that i use when deploying a new PC 1 Vlite - you can intergrate updates into the instalation media - http://www.vlite.net/ 2 Auto Patcher - Downloads and updates once windows installs - http://www.autopatcher.com/
  6. yes as you state the user credentials page does come up and if you enter some random information it does kick back with autentication failure messages
  7. I have just tired to connect using the RDP you posted and i get the normal login page as if the client has accepted the connection on your end
  8. what are your connection settings? can you save your connection as an .rdp and i will take a look at the settings
  9. Sounds a similar spec to the pc i am running at the moment but with a little bit less memory and an ATI Card instead of my trusty NVIDIA card so this would run vista ok with more memory
  10. you could try chaging the port that RDP is connecting by disabling the remote desktop option in the proprties window then using regedit and editing HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\TerminalServer\WinStations\RDP-Tcp\PortNumber once done if you run mstsc /v:HOTSTNAME:PORTNUMBER /admin that should have changed the listening port number
  11. if you open a command prompt and enter netstat -a you should get the responce TCP TheGuildWIN:0 LISTENING If the port is listening
  12. Ive got my vista machine setup with the standard RDP port as a public port on my router and it connects fine from my office although as long as you set the RDP port correctly you can in theory set any external port as the incomming connection wich routes through to your machine So say for example my home machine is set to the port for RDP to work is 3389 this is open by default on my machine try looking at any firewall on your machine which could be blocking this port I have my external ip setup to (only an example) with port 380 set to forward to which allows me a connection ok from my XP laptop as from the error messages you are getting i sugest trying using only your machines ip for now and from work take the public ip from your router and try using port forwarding
  13. ok and how are you trying to access the machine (by hostname or by IP) the only reason i ask this is becasuse the VMWare adapters usualy have a different ip range and have you tried this on another computer?
  14. Are you only using the remote connection via VMware?
  15. First of all i would check the firewall settings within vista to ensure that you are on a private network as it locks down the machine if it is connected to a public network. Second make sure you are on the same network (ip in the same range and subnet the same)
  16. Have you tried removing the partition on the drive and recreating it?
  17. or yet another alternative if you are using business or ulitimate is to use go to run then enter control userpasswords2 then untick the box that says require password
  18. Yes you can use an key bought with an X86 version of Vista to install the X64 OS (So long as you have the X64 Media)
  19. sounds like a good thing to do let us know if that works for you
  20. The way you could do that is to Right click on my computer and go to manage, and select local users and groups. If you expand that option and select users this will give you the console to edit users. However you wont be able to delete administrator or guest i sugest you simply rename the accounts
  21. Ive been using Vista since a few months after it came out, at first i was sceptical and kept xp on my machine but after only a week or so i re-installed with out xp with out any issues. I cant see why there is that many people having problems with it, out of the box it is stable on most upto date systems.
  22. if you have the WAIK Kit installed the windows image manager will do this for you
  23. what does the content of the first.cmd batch script contain?
  24. what resources are you trying to use? I use my laptop wich runs xp sp3 to access network shares on vista x64 sp1 command that i generaly use is net use u: \\hostname\share /savecred /persistent:yes (U can be any letter that you want to map the drive to) this then asks for the machine login details and keeps the drive mapping when not on my local network. as for the command you where running i sugest you clear what ever you entered (shoud be the command net use * /delete)
