comment Getting a laptop to a prepurchase state
But the recovery image wouldn't securely erase my friends business data would it? I have a Vista disc but from my experience it wants to create a new user for it. Can I turn off the machine at that point? When installing an OS I usually create the user a log right on in...

I agree. A decent way would be at the end of the bounty time a grace period of 3 days to allocate the bounty. Then that would allow me (who wasn't online last night due to the hotel internet connection disappearing) to allocate the bounty.

Just checked the FAQ and it is perfectly clear. Once again my apologies. Can moderators change this?

Well I thought that you accepted the best answer after the completion date and that would assign it. Doesn't seem much point in accepting early in the bounty phase in case a better answer came along later that was more complete. Sorry about that.

Okay, I can ping each other and I can ping google.co.uk (.com failed to find but that is due to geolocation redirection I think). I can also ping the name of the machines.

So change my network from 192.168.200.x to 192.168.137.x? Will do.

So why did the host want to reconfigure the network from the number I had set it to to something different? It is not the same as the hotel network as that is 192.168.254.x.

Once I had disabled the firewall, which I am not too happy about.

Seemed good right up til step 4. Soon as I did that the Host wanted to change the static ip from 192.168.200.100 to 192.168.137.1. I've allowed it for now - need to reconfigure the VM to use 192.168.137.x now. Will do that later when I get back from work.
