I thinks it depends on the actual drive and if there is a "translation mode" in it's firmware set to "on" (via jumper or through OS driver ) , but I don't really have any detailed experience with these new 4 kb sector drives.
Is this because of cloning from an "old" drive or just normal. Does Windows emulate 512kb-sectors
Never Mind.... I ´ll find out some day
Is there any way to get a larger upload-storage... or do i have to remove all the pictures?
Here is another Problem, which is really annoying to me.. I´m pretty sure that this is a LOL-Problem for Tripredacus mentioned in his signature ^^:
- I installed Vista SP2 on this Notebook without unattended-answer-files or any other XML (no experiences since Vista, as i dont own a PC/Notebook at the moment, which is runnable for Vista (sometimes i ask myself why I always have to handle with this old crap or any other celeron-low-cached systems)
- at OOBE i went to AUDIT-MODE
- I pre-configured the system AND ACTIVATED IT!
- But when i boot to OOBE again, i have to activate again, which i am not able to accept
Is there a way to ACTIVATE vista before running OOBE, not nessecery to activate at OOBE again?
If I have to use a unattended.xml, syspref.xml or anything like that, can I just put the information for the activation in it? I´ve read something about \Windows\Panther, but do not want to do all the steps through Windows System Image Manager!
I´ve been looking around but didn´t find a solution, just for the inverted problem: Windows_welcome
i guess, that should be OOBE
In this article of TechNet:http://technet.micro...514(WS.10).aspx
Activating Windows before Shipping to a Customer
Most customers can easily manage activation after receiving their computers. But if you prefer, you can activate the software on behalf of your customers, making it easier for them to start using their new computers. After activation is completed, most users will not need to activate their installation again.
To activate Windows for your customer, use the unique Product Key from the certificate of authenticity (COA) label that is affixed to the specific computer, and activate the computer on behalf of the end user. Run the sysprep /oobe command to prepare the computer for delivery to the customer.
You cannot make an image of an activated Windows installation and duplicate that image to another computer. If you do, Windows fails to recognize the activation and forces the end user to reactivate the installation manually.
But how... for me that doesn´t work. Always have to enter the VLK (without imaging or applying between AUDIT and OOBE)
And there are only about 3 times remained. I read somewhere that i can only activate online 10 times
Tripredacus, the HTML/VBS/JS-Problem has to wait. Is there a way to get a larger up-box? Or do i have to delete all these funny, little screenshots?
