  1. It is possible that you may never be able to get the disks to enumerate in the order you want in Windows. You could always try it, since unless you are using a RAID controller or these devices are in any vdisks, it shouldn't make any difference to Windows. BUT: what you can do instead is use the volume label to identify what port is being used. And also you could write on the disk itself which port it is connected to.
  2. I am going to go out onto a limb and say that there is nothing built-in Windows 7 to produce those kinds of messages. So for those who use the "as needed" update method instead of the "all critical/all" updates method may not ever see anything.
  3. Edge is not Chrome, they are both Chromium. Those using Win7 will just have to disable the update services before the end date, although I'm sure some Win7 specific Chromium builds will be available for years to come.
  4. Split this post into new topic as it was posted into the "Lite for Longhorn" topic.
  5. Not weird at all. It is one problem with using Embedded OSes, you don't know what you are missing until you run into a problem. The issue being is that most software developers (or ISVs) write their software for, and test it on, retail Windows XP. When the time come to move to an Embedded product, presuming they are not opting for an Enterprise SKU, the OS is built from the ground up. The client sends a list of requirements, and a demo installation is created and sent to the client.* The client tests their software with their hardware and makes reports back any problems. The Embedded Partner then adjusts the OS and the ISV will retest until they are satisfied. Then the unit gets approved and is put on site somewhere. The problem lies with situations where the client doesn't test for all situations that their product would be involved in, or they may not communicate a need properly. Then on the other side, the documentation of what package does what is not detailed enough when building an OS. So these things do end up happening. There are also situations where an expected OS component you would think is enabled by default ends up not. One example I can think is that even if you install the USB package for Windows 8.1 Industry Pro, USB (bi-directional) 2.0 or 3.0 doesn't actually work. One client I build this OS for got all the way past testing phase and had units on site when it was determined their machines did not have fully functional USB. The issue was discovered when they tried to do firmware updates using USB keys. There have been other situations where expected low-level functions are missing, and since they are not documented properly, can take a while to figure out. Another I recall is an OS (I forget which Embedded SKU it was) didn't support the function of RS232 (Serial Port) but did install the drivers for the device. *This example follows the ISV/Embedded Partner model and not the in-house model.
  6. Would you mind explaining how you fixed it?
  7. Moved to Hard Drive forum There seems to be two main ways to fix this. One is to convert it to Basic with diskpart, but this normally erases the data. Another may be to hexedit info on the disk itself. Just to be clear about the history of this system. Was this SSD present in this notebook when Windows 7 was installed, and the system was just upgraded to Windows 10 with no hardware changes? Does an actual RAID controller appear in Device Manager?
  8. You're going to need to post specs and which OS build you are using.
  9. Going to need a screenshot. Also you can go to the command prompt and run diskpart, and post the output of the following: list disk detail disk 0 detail vol c
  10. Not sure how this was missed, but why name changing so often?
  11. It is in the specs, such as page 8 in the sizes chart: "Bytes per Sector: 512 (logical) / 4096 (physical)"
  12. IIRC, TCP/IP and/or Winsock corruption in Windows 98 was common... at least I recall having to reinstall it a lot when I did support at an ISP. https://web.archive.org/web/20031215041414/https://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=286748
  13. and the Activity Streams view condensed works again too!
  14. Here is the manual for the Seagate 5TB: https://www.seagate.com/www-content/product-content/seagate-laptop-fam/barracuda_25/en-us/docs/100804767h.pdf It would appear that the disk has its own 4K Translator, and is designed to identify or expose the 512 to the system.
  15. It is good to point this out. Of the two Ghost versions I have for DOS, as noted I use Ghost12 to image "standard" Win7 spindle disks, and because it supports the System Reserve partition, it is my go-to Ghost for imaging disks. But I wanted to point out that Ghost7's DOS version can image a disk with Windows 7 that is installed without System Reserve partition.
