comment Have the command prompt launch an application like Notepad and block until it is closed
Good addition on /B /WAIT behavior. Has caught me out a couple of times in the past before I realized the order mattered.

That doesn't give the intended behavior. Notepad is detached from the 2nd instance of CMD which immediately exits to the first CMD which will happily continue without waiting for notepad.

comment Unable to access my BIOS although the OS boots fine
@addictcook Getting into the BIOS via grub is NOT, I repeat NOT, the same as entering the BIOS directly on boot. And the grub method may actually be the cause of the problem in the first place. It is not guaranteed to work. Some BIOSses, particularly on laptops, don't like being activated via grub at all or work only with a specific version of grub.

comment Is my motherboard broken?
If you have multiple RAM strips, try with only 1 of them. And try different RAM slots. If you have a broken RAM-strip or slot in some cases it may show as any other error in stead of a RAM error. Swap them all around to see if that is the case. But it does sound as if the motherboard is dead... You seem to have ruled out anything else already.

comment Unable to direct print to Zebra on a Mac via Remote Desktop
@vIceBerg Are you saying the RDP service is directly exposed to the Internet ? From a security perspective that is not wise... But anyway, that limits the options for a solution. I'm back home in about 2-3 hours. Will see if I can figure out a way to do this with the Microsoft RDP App on OSX.

comment VirtualBox is unable to allocate cached memory on windows (not considering it as available)
Eh ? That really doesn't make sense. You should easily be able to run a 2 GB VM on a 6GB host without any special configuration at all. That sounds more like as if you have faulty RAM in the host. Did you run a real ramtest (like memtestx86) just to be certain that your RAM is OK ? Bios RAM diagnostic on boot has little meaning. It doesn't really test the RAM, just verify if it's there.

@vIceBerg A question about your setup.. You don't mention if your customers are in the same LAN or dailing in on a VPN. The latter seems more logical reading between the lines. This makes a difference for possible solutions.

comment Unable to direct print to Zebra on a Mac via Remote Desktop
@vIceBerg USB connected... I don't know if you can send a file directly to the printer that way. I never used a USB connected printer on a Mac. I found a Tutorial on Google code link which describes how to setup a RAW printer via CUPS on OSX. This might just be suitable for your use-case. I'm in the office now. When I get home tonight I can test this myself and update my answer if this provides a solution.

comment As a Windows 7 x64 user with a 4TB GPT-initialised disk, why is it showing as 1677.90GB?
@Check12 Most controllers from that time may support it, but not all. And BIOS must co-operate as well. It is by no means a given that a Bios can handle it. I have just last month seen a 2015 Bios that barfed on a 3 TB disk connected to the eSata port. (It is a laptop. Seems the manufacturer didn't bother to test, because the internal HDD's they sell them with just go to 1 TB max.)
