I'm not sure about the ...

A proper DNS server is listening on port UDP53, so it should be accessible to your VM, whether in NAT or in bridged mode, at the IP address of your host machine. The lo interface, 127.0.0.1, is not normally accessible from outside the pc and, even though there are ways around this, it is best left alone. Edit: Since host ip is dynamic .... This is ...

What someone considers to be best will be an individual matter. I like to boot a system with a Live CD or DVD and run a backup operation using a tool on the Live CD/DVD.

The problem is the linebreaks. If you fix these, it will import successfully.

It's the carriage returns/new lines. The Registry importer doesn't like importing stuff with EOL/newlines/CR characters in it (even though you can export it successfully). You can check that theory by looking a the .reg file section that holds the TEXT file that DID import (the TO_CHAR example), I'd bet it has no carriage returns. To get around it: ...

You need to access a partition manager, such as GParted, and modify the partition that corresponds to J: such that it has the boot/system flag set.

If you don't want a default gateway, the best option is to remove it from the interface configuration. Go to the interface properties and choose TCPv4 properties. If this is set to "obtain an ip address automatically" then DHCP is setting the IP address, and defining the default gateway. In which case, the simplest solution is to use a static address.

You can connect and (simultaneously) use up to three monitors using the on-board graphics capability. If you have monitors that only support DVI, you can purchase a HDMI-to-DVI or DisplayPort-to-DVI adaptor (and use your existing DVI-to-DVI cable) or you can purchase a HDMI-to-DVI or DisplayPort-to-DVI cable. These are relatively inexpensive.

The reason this has such a cataclysmic reputation is that Windows 98 and XP would sometimes install a "composite device" driver on anything it didn't recognize so as to manage interrupts from the unknown device. Unfortunately, that meant that the new hardware wizard wouldn't get triggered and that the device could not be detected when you tried to follow the ...

What program or method are you using for cloning? Regardless, your getting "G,H,I,J" because the method you're using detects the current "C,D,E,F" drive and partitions.

You still can use extended support from Microsoft as a paid service. So to answer this question properly would be that updates for XP are still rolling. Yes that's not the answer, but you can still get these updates for free, by changing your product. Licence won't be broken, and it still will look and behave as XP. But it's difficult to say if it's 100% ...

This question is old, but it might help someone: experimentation on Windows XP has shown me that the DWORD value 65536 tells to winlogon to hide all the user accounts starting with the value name.

The problem is the netmask, a netmask by definition is a mask which defines the bits to apply variation so you cannot have variation in the first 3 of the fields. If you have a mask of 240.x.x.x then the x.x.x must be 0.0.0. I have actually just used the command: route ADD 224.0.0.0 MASK 240.0.0.0 192.168.3.1 IF 21 -p
