comment How to generate Asus BIOS rescue password?
I forgot to ask and verify, YOU DO OWN the laptop in question. If not, then I would refer this back to your company administrator.

Then contact the ASUS people concerning this issue. If it was easy to change and bypass the Master Password, it would not be a very good protection would it?

You have to change the static device then to properly match the netmask in use.

Based on this and your previous question, I think that either you might want to call in a network person or read a little bit more about IPV4 networking construction.

comment HP Bluetooth mouse works in OSX on Macbook but not in Windows 8.1 (Boot Camp)
Just for curiousity, is a Macbook pro on the HCL for windows 8.1? Also, suggest you get the latest drivers which may work and of course ensure you are up-to-date on your patches.

comment Share internal hdd through usb
You don't mention the OS, distribution, and version number of the PC. If Linux, a SAMBA setup is possible as well as NFS but not a direct attachment since this would cause near immediate data corruption.

Geeze....are there any supported drivers for something this old, unsupported and most likely a security risk waiting to happen?
