comment Windows 7 removes boot camp drivers on reboot
You are using Windows 7 x64 or Server 2008 R2? Server 2008 R2 requires drivers to be signed, so I would think that they will not install.

Well that was some easy reputation for a Google search.

comment So I want to separate my Program Files from the hard disk with the other system files. What is the best way to do this?
You can change the location of your user profile: windowsxp.mvps.org/userpath.htm - whether it is a good idea or not is up for debate.

comment Problem with Windows activation on a VM (Virtual machine)
Yes, that's because you have an OEM copy of the operating system. They are designed to be non-transferable. See here: "The steps in the article are effective only on Volume License media. If you try these steps on OEM media or on retail media, you will not change the product key ... That is, the channel (MSDN, retail, OEM, Volume License, and so on), the SKU (Windows XP Professional, Windows XP Home Edition, and so on), and the language (English, French, and so on) must match between the product key and the media."

comment System Event ID 11 Disk
AHCI to IDE should be pain free, the other way around causes problems. As long as you have regular backups changing any setting shouldn't be a problem.

comment Activation of Bootcamped Windows 7 in VMWare Fusion, is it legal?
It's the English Windows 7 Home Premium EULA. As far as I can tell this EULA is not localised to any particular English-speaking country.

comment Is there a legal way to obtain Windows 7 DVD?
+1 for you! I didn't realise the ISOs were available online as DDL with Microsoft's blessing. Although I am not sure if using the retail media is the same as using the OEM media, I have been caught up previously when using an OEM key with retail media.

Or you could just burn a disc. It's not like having a burnt copy of the media is illegal.

comment System Event ID 11 Disk
The disk controller can still be bad on the motherboard. If they are SATA, try changing from AHCI to IDE emulation and see how it goes.

comment Windows powering off after login
How do you know it is not a hardware issue, just because Linux doesn't reboot doesn't make it a software issue. What is Windows has drivers for a particular piece of hardware that is causing the reboot, whereas Linux doesn't have the driver and the device is not being activated under Linux?

comment Is it safe to run a potentially dangerous program (having possibly worm, virus, …) on Virtual PC?
This is like that time there was a used car in the car yard of a used car dealer and the user car dealer was out of business and I couldn't get the keys to the car any other way. Long story short, I broke through the window of the car and hotwired it. You might be thinking I'm a lawyer or something. No. I'm not a lawyer, I'm a person who wants to get something done.

comment Intel® Core™2 Duo Desktop Processor vs Intel® Core™ i3 Desktop Processor?
Am I missing something? It says the Core 2 Duo takes 29.2 seconds for a Photoshop retouch and the i3 takes 25 seconds. Lower is better.
