Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Trusty Tahr host OS VirtualBox 4.3.10Ubuntu r93012 Windows 7 Home Premium guest I had the same problem. I first burned the .iso file to a DVD and set up passthrough access to the CD/DVD drive on my Toshiba Satellite C660 laptop. (But you probably don't need to do this. The Windows 7 folder for the VM was created, and the Windows 7 installer ...

I saw i can pre-install software with the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2013 program, but I dont like that because its not unattended. Deployment with MDT can be completely automated, to where you boot from the media (network or USB stick) and the deployment is run without pressing a single button or completing a single prompt. See the Getting Started ...

Just to answer my own question for others that may experience the same thing. It appears that if you have a Windows 8-7 downgrade installed on your PC, and there is no licence key sticker on the PC in question, there is no way to install a version of Windows 7 without using the recovery CD/DVD. It's down to the Windows 7 licencing and how Windows 8 reads ...

PXE will boot a computer with a blank hard drive, in fact it will but a computer without a hard drive. It will not, necessarily, copy the OS to the hard drive. The OS that gets booted may be an OS installer, which would then copy the OS to the hard drive, but its up to the OS do that.

It seems the /usr/bin/python is the Apple provided file. As others mentioned, do not touch it. The file itself seems to be pointing to (Reference 1): /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions In this folder you should be able to find the latest installed 2.x or 3.x versions with symbolic link folder named Current/, where Current/ will point to the ...

All you have to do is grab an SSD and put it into secondary slot. Then you can select boot hard drive from BIOS. Seriously, there is not first or second hard disk. About SSD, you should look for kits where it has additional equipment you might need. Like this.

Freeware - IOBit Driver Booster I've tried it to see if it appears to be finding the right things, & it does seem to be - rather than those that claim your 1992 CD-ROM drive needs an update but you'll have to pay 25 bucks to do it. Having said that, I've not tested it extensively, so ymmv.

I think your BIOS settings is set to 'quickboot'. Meaning that the default booting device is the first HDD, even if a CD is present. - Pressing F12 on the boot-screen often opens a menu, where you can select the CD/DVD as boot device. - If not, you must enter the BIOS and change the settings that 'allow other boot devices' or setup the 'boot priority'. - The ...

What you are trying achieve is creating a custom image. You don't have to use Microsoft Deployment Toolkit for this purpose. Thing is, you could do this with MDT easily if you knew how to use it. Otherwise, it is quite confusing at the beginning. (With all those task sequences and stuff.) I found that creating custom images manually gives you more ...

It can be done with a IDE/SATA to CF adapter, but you have to consider price vs performance and lifespan against a removable or second HDD.

The Click-to-Run version of Office 2010 is a disaster area where add-ins and external automation is concerned. VBA may or may not be installed, but the whole of Office 2010 runs in a virtual machine that doesn't expose itself or its registry entries to the outside, which probably accounts for why it's not detected. If memory serves, there's some way of ...

Welcome to the SQL Server "missuninstallation" Tool. Then, I suggest you remove all SQL previous installations and everything, try to clean up everything.

You can use NTLite for this purpose. For installing windows which is already activated you may need to add some windows 8.1 activators which automatically activates windows 8.1 on application startup.Then you can add that software to the list of freewares you need to install.

To make these changes login to the user you want to change the settings of, and make the changes. There's also ways to do it by a script but I doubt that's the solution you need to bother with.

You can create a simple FAT32 partition on that USB drive - size 8 GB (so you can accommodate images bigger than 4 GB) Then mount the source ISO and copy ALL files (admin mode) to the created partition on USB. Then you run bootsect /nt60 z: /force /mbr where z: is your partition on USB drive. Check with "Disk Management" or diskpart.exe that the USB ...

Sorry for the late reply, but unfortunately my SSD proved faulty soon after I bought it and I had to RMA it. A few days ago I got the replacement. The point is that unfortunately my question was based on a misunderstanding: I thought, that if both the SSD and the HD were bootable, then some kind of conflict would occur during boot, and the system wouldn't ...

In Windows, you can simply achieve it using an autorun.inf file in the root folder of your disc. All you need to do is, create a text file at the root folder of your disc, name it as autorun.inf and configure as to which EXE you want to execute when the disc is inserted. Lets, say you want to run Setup.exe (also present in the root folder), below will be ...

On Windows 7 and 8 I would say install it as per normal to your C: drive, cut the directory to another drive, and create a Symbolic Link using the mklink command like so: mklink /d "c:\Program Files\<Original folder name>" "d:\<New Folder location>" On Windows XP it's a little trickier, because it doesn't come with the mklink command.

After some additional detective work I finally figured this out. Turns out that the v2 release channel of SugarSync doesn't use the OS X Fuse kernel extension, but the totally defunct MacFUSE extension. The osxfuse 2.6.1 install package is bundled with SugarSync.app so that it can always install the MacFUSE compatibility layer option if necessary. ...

The whole path counts as filename and cannot surpass 260 characters (source): If the length of the file name is an issue, one should be aware that the folder sturcture counts in to the file name length.

Seems like there's a problem with your file system. Could be plenty of things, bad installation, a partition problem or maybe your hard drive is failing. If it's a partition problem you should run fsck from a live distro.

I ran into the same problem with an Intel NUC. Following the instructions above didn't work for me, either.

I simply hit RETURN, and ...

You really can't do that with Windows due to how the registry and the drivers integrate with each other. This has nothing to do with the authorization process, and has always been an issue going back long before Windows 8.1. There is also the new UEFI BIOS which can get in the way because Windows integrates with it unlike Windows ever did before. Laptops are ...

The reason is a registry setting which should not be there: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\ directly (and NOT in a subkey, as it should be) contains the entries InstallLocation, UninstallString and a few more that relate to the Canon software.

Google suggests it's common to have a problem with dual-booting Windows 8 with GRUB, including the GRUB menu not showing Windows, or the Windows entry not working.
