comment PC does not boot detecting hard drive…but SeaTools passes the drive
How about you try writing zeros to the drive, seatoolks ma have that option.. Another thing you can do is delete the partitions and restart(even without windows on the drive), and see if POST freezes.

I haven't seen the ""detecting AHCI Port 0"" error. Have you tried another drive?

comment Can I make a DOSBox like, in Virtual Box
I didn't use any internet access within DOS (so I didn't use wget) Also in the days of DOS most people didn't have internet access. I made an image of a floppy disk and copied the game onto that. Then I loaded the virtual floppy image into the virtual machine

comment Need a proxy server for only logging requests
ok but wireshark isn't a proxy, and I suppose if he wants to sit that in between two computers then I suppose you'd have to add how he'd get the computer to act as an in between, as a proxy.

comment Google Chrome no longer opens local HTML files when I double click them
-1 You write "If, I have a Chrome window open and drag the HTML file into the browser window, it will render the HTML content properly" <-- That contradicts your title that says "Google Chrome no longer opens local HTML files". So your issue is one of file associations. I may improve your title

comment virtualbox - access host (linux) filesystem from guest (linux)
In Windows, and this may be the same or similar in Linux. The Host OS gets an additional network interface with an IP like 192.168.65.1 and the Guest OS can access it e.g. if the host and guest is windows, the guest can access the host with \\192.168.65.1 file sharing..

comment virtualbox - access host (linux) filesystem from guest (linux)
-1 "The virus scanner only allows me to configure the network's IP address" <-- that makes no sense. I think you mean the distro.

comment Windows 7 - Connecting to PC on same network asking for username and password
Entering compbrother, would be the user/pass your brother uses to login. It has been a while since I set up file sharing in windows and i'm not sure why it's continually prompting you.. What you can do to troubleshoot it is try something like net use \\compbrother\c$ maybe it will give you an error you can google

comment Bridging Wifi to Ethernet on Ubuntu not working
@DavidSchwartz If a person has a laptop with no working wireless and no network switch to plug it into for internet access, but another laptop has wireless internet access, and there's no spare wireless usb stick. Then it seems the only solution is the bridging fakery. If both laptops had a working wireless network adaptor they could both just connect to the main wireless access point, no need for extra access points and WDS.. I've used the bridging fakery when one laptop couldn't do wireless.
