comment How to recover from PATH being truncated to 1028 characters by SETX
see what I added in my edit re using setx. Also, (if I recall), there is no need to reboot. Just open a new command prompt and you see the new path. And also, since setx sets things in the registry.. you can always use the reg query command to view what it did. e.g. set reglocation=HKLM....<ENTER> reg query "%reglocation%"

comment How to recover from PATH being truncated to 1028 characters by SETX
you system won't be unstable, but find out from another windows 8 user or a webpage, what the path should be in a fresh windows 8 installation, and use that. And grow it if necessary. Always back up your PATH before using setx. Maybe there's a system restore you can do in windows 8 that can roll the path back? it's worth a try EDIT ADDED- next time when using setx, first do echo %PATH%>afile <-- and try setx on some other variable not PATH. Then when you're sure you have the setx line right, after trying it on TESTPATH,then do setx on PATH.

comment Replace a character in middle of characters using regular expression in notepad ++
maybe regex can't. or if it could it'd be some very 'advanced' feature supported only in perl, notice answers don't involve regex

comment Can't access BIOS setup. Erased all data on hard drive
Computers.. I mean.. desktops and laptops, don't have a 'factory reset' button. Like a pin to push. Or even AFAIK, a factory reset option in a menu like an android phone. Furthermore, even if you take the hard disks out it won't affect whether or not you can get into the BIOS, they're independent. HP may have a CD with a restoration method though. But you'd have to get to the BIOS to boot off it. Perhaps you just haven't figured out how. Include some screenshots , take them with your phone. So we see what you see when you try to access the BIOS

comment Using Wget to download website from Internet Archive
been a while and i'm no expert but maybe another thing to look at would be to get all the URLs in a file, remove any you don't want. And then do wget -i fileofurls

comment Access point IP range
If I recall correctly, Access Points don't have IPs. Whether they hand out IPs(DHCP), i'm not sure, perhaps not

comment Command-line SMTP Server?
And regarding the -install option. from the same page blat.net/?faq/index.html#cl__why_should_i_run_blat_install... "CL - Why should I run Blat -install...? Because it simplifies the command line by storing any or all of the following in the registry SMTP Server Address Sender's Address " <-- So looks like that option doesn't make it a server.

comment Command-line SMTP Server?
Is this a server? "What is Blat (and what does it do)? blat.net/?faq/index.html#what_is_blat_(and_what_does_it_do) "What is Blat (and what does it do)? Blat is a small, efficent SMTP command line mailer for Windows. It is the SMTP sending part of an eMail User Agent (MUA) or eMail client. As such, Blat sends eMail via SMTP (or internet eMail) from the command line, or CGI, ..." <-- looks like not a server.

comment ASCII text files
The only thing about the origin if a file I can think of, is 'creation time'. that might be an avenue to look down if at the binary/hex level it's distinctive to an OS, and even after a copy, but I doubt it. don't get your hopes up

comment SFTP without tunneling?
so, whatever protocol you're familiar with, you can point the client side of the app for that protocol(e.g. outlook being smtp client), you can point that to the listening port of the tunnel, and have set the tunnel to forward to the server side of your protocol(your ISP's SMTP Server). Windows remote desktop could be sent through an SSH tunnel. (even windows file sharing can apparently).

comment SFTP without tunneling?
@Trekker no problem. VNC is just an example of an encapsulated protocol, it's quite useful,it lets you view another computer's screen like 'remote desktop'.though some prefer other methods of viewing another desktop. Another example of a protocol that could be the encapsulated protocol is SMTP or POP3.u can have an SMTP client(an email client e.g.outlook express or whatever) and an SMTP server(your ISP's).And use them. Or (if you learn it) even the linux's nc command or nc in cygwin in windows, can send data to a server(nc ip port) or be a server and receive raw data(nc -l -p 123) or nc -l 123

comment PC does start but cannot boot from USB/CD
@Vinayak He still has to boot to use that.. peter nordahl's offline nt password recovery is another. He said "On the tested USB drive" and given how thorough he has been in testing that his CD's bootableness and other CDs bootableness.. he is likely to have tested the USB too. If he hasn't then he knows to judging by his question.. though yes you're right he should.. and he didn't explicitly say that he did.

comment Where do I get a recovery media for WHS 2011?
furthermore, looking at your new title. Since your link to MS, says for those that odn't have the CD.. and suggests using a usb. So even they don't say where you can get it. The obvious way where you can get it is to buy it. Or somebody might pirate one though that wouldn't sound legal. I don't think you'll get any other answers as to where to get the CD that comes with something, other than to buy it.(then insert it into your computer that -if you're right- can't boot CDs, and watch it not boot the CD)
