comment Automatically default back to QWERTY keyboard layout to prevent irritation to other team members?
We use the VM for testing purposes and the accounts have been setup with specific configurations to carry out the tests. Not using the same login accounts is not a choice.

comment PC only boots from Linux-based media and won't boot from DOS-based media
I recall doing that and it still was not working. This happened a long time ago and the problem seemed temporary. The PC worked again after this short period of odd behaviour. Never figured out what the issue was.

comment Windows XP scheduled task not running at appointed time and triggering on login
Actually, after some googling, it seems that the 'prompt password' option is available in XP under the Advanced tab of the Power Options settings in control panel. However, mine is showing that it is checked, but disabled and greyed out?

comment Windows XP scheduled task not running at appointed time and triggering on login
Well the scheduled tasks status indicates to me that it is waking up the computer from sleep based on its last run time. But I did your test anyway and confirm that it is indeed waking up. I also think the 'prompt password on wake up' setting is available in Windows 7 and not XP.

comment Partimage and autocheck problem when restoring Windows XP from image
Thanks. This pointed me in the right direction. A couple of other sources indicates that this field needs to be changed as well. Although I think it is called a Bios Parameter Block and not Boot. It also seems that I need to modify the boot.ini file to point to the correct partition after the restore.
