comment Booting Fedora22 from a non live usb drive
after generating the bootable linux flash drive in the vm the uuid of the partition was 54... when booting off of a live cd on the phisical pc after booting failed due to not finding root @ 54... live cd would read the uuid on the partition and it would be 67.... not 54 like it was on the vm.

consistant on THAT pc alone. it uses information from bios/pci/etc... sources inside the pc that you boot from to generate the UUID. its like a finger print. even if you stick a ring on another persons finger that finger print is still the same on each seperate persons hand. i can take screen shots to prove that building a fc22 image in a vm on a flash drive dos not work due to uuid changing between systems. It seems they are using it like microsoft does the secure boot stuff.

comment Is there any option to use Amazon Cloud Drive from terminal (Linux)?
This appears to work well so far. I plan to script around it and build an automated backup system for my network using this. Thanks for the tip Matt

comment Booting Fedora22 from a non live usb drive
fedora22 recognzes flash drives but is set to install around UUID of partitions. those uuid's are "secure" aka don't port to another machine making a portable flash drive boot useless. i need /dev/sda1 back in the options of boot but i have not been able to find out how to add label or partition back in to dracut based boot images. I have tried mirroring what was done in centos7 as it IS portable by default and uses /dev/sda1 by default.

comment GRUB menu not showing up
its been forever since I had to use grub1 And it was always on redhat so I am not sure if your distro will be the same. grub-install or maybe going in to grub after the system is booted and running setup. one of them is pretty automated (the one im thinking of) the other i think you hav to specify information.

comment Win7pe_SE based recovery disk using multiple wim's
Since rebootpro and theoven forums are ignoring new user requests I finally reinstalled the software a 3rd time on a new version of the pc image and it started working for some reason.

comment How can wireless reception be improved for a particular device?
as well as a background noise issue. some people have microwaves/refrigerators/motered equipment between or near the devices causing loss of signal. A proper survay would tell you what is putting out the noise. there may be some free software to allow you to walk around with your laptop and find problems that way.

Please include model of device like Ron mentioned external antennas are the most popular method but not available for all equipment. there may also be specific bugs in your device etc.

comment For a 4 storied house - 2 basic routers or 1 extra range router?
even if you get a high gain antenna you may not see good results if the pc's wireless card is weak. I was looking at some industrial wifi cards for my laptop a few years ago that were able to send/recieve with about double or better the transmit power than the average wifi card. Some wifi access points support enterprise settings that allow "seemless" fallover between several ap's which may do you well in this case. they are configured to be aware of other ap's near by and when configured right your pc will automatically switch between them which will change your ip and interupt traffic.
