  1. Well I meant more towards bootable tools etc but yeah I guess it was inappropriate Thanks for the links. I actually registered and have been asking around there too.
  2. I meant booting an iso of some sort. Like say if I want to be able to add Acronis True Image to the boot as well I'll give the links a look - thanks!
  3. Hopefully someone can help with this question... How would I make something like UBCD bootable within this environment? It has it's own partition but how do I properly point to it? is it that wingrub / grup will automatically point to the right files?
  4. Why can't I use Vista's own backup and restore to make an image? I remember reading an article about the capability. It may not be as good as Ghost or Acronis but it is free. I haven't actually restored the image so not sure what to expect but I would imagine it would it restore the image like any of the other products
  5. I thought I was going crazy when I couldn't find search anywhere. Is it that they want people to use the search boxes that show up in explorer? Or the start menu search? I still would prefer the option to see search on my start menu so thanks for this
  6. The patch I just used seemed to make quite a mess on my bro's pc. I had to do a system restore to get things properly running again. Wondering if there is a more up to date patch? Also from a reliable download site. Unless there is another way (without installing a third party app) to connect to my brother's machine without him having to use Remote Assistance
  7. I actually just downloaded Virtual PC to give that a go. Was using VM Ware since it supports 64 bit hosts but I'll try it now within Virtual PC
  8. I like to install apps into a virtual machine before actually installing it on my desktop. Imagine my happiness when I read through my license and found this.... USE WITH VIRTUALIZATION TECHNOLOGIES. You may use the software installed on the licensed device within a virtual (or otherwise emulated) hardware system on the licensed device. If you do so, you may not play or access content or use applications protected by any Microsoft digital, information or enterprise rights management technology or other Microsoft rights management services or use BitLocker. We advise against playing or accessing content or using applications protected by other digital, information or enterprise rights management technology or other rights management services or using full volume disk drive encryption. But even though it's supposed to be supported, I have run into only issues. Has anyone tried running Vista Ultimate within a virtual machine on desktop already activated for Vista Ultimate? Clearly the license says I can but it's not working out that way. I now have to call Microsoft whenever I need to reactivate my desktop (tendency of reinstalling everything every quarter) regardless of the fact that I have not changed any of my hardware since I first got my retail (not OEM) copy back in January. On top of that, when I now try to activate within VMWare it says the key is not genuine. It appears I'm unable to actually run both at the same time even though it clearly says that I can. Can anyone comment on this? I've had no luck with Microsoft support so far. No one knows the specifics about this. One genius thought I was talking about running Vista within a Mac OS
  9. Will this work with 2k3 r2?
  10. Well, hopefully someone figures it out
  11. Thanks for the info guys!
  12. I can't get Vista to install...keeps failing. Boot loader is intact, though. Is there any way to remove this without reformatting? I tried using fixmbr in recovery console but it did nothing.
  13. I'm having the exact same problem...mobo is asus sli premium
