    Found a solution!
    It only works if Windows 7 is installed on Virtual PC SP1 !

    Next problem…I need to activate this copy of Windows 7. I have the product key, but cannot connect to the Internet from Windows 7 Virtual PC. Has the IP if I use SHared NAT option, but no internet access….any clue?

    bearebel, what I do when I install a VM is to save it to a storage location. If I need to use that VM, I Copy & Paste the VM to the location that I want to use it from. This was you only ever have to create a single VM. This way the original VM is never used except when Updating or copying to replace a borked one. Saves a crap load of time.

    Certainly. That is what I do as well. However, I cannot install ‘Additions’ on any of these VMs that I have copied from one single VM.

    have you checked in the properties of the VM they are enabled?
    Have you rebooted your VPC since?

    Have you tried reinstalling the additions?

    I did install my virtual machine after installing the virtual machine addition, however, it is now coming up with a blue screen of death!
    If I don’t install the virtual machine addition, it runs fine. But ofcourse, there is no point if I cannot copy files into the virtual machine.

    I am trying to reinstall the windows 7 on virtual PC now. Will keep you posted.
    Let me know please if you know anything about this blue screen issue.

    Re: Uninstalling Vista… Install XPpro

    Well, Ive seen this to many times. One thing I would do if I was you would to be Looking for a little program called “Delpart” Remimber NT 4.0 ? Delpart will kill any Nt Partion. And show you the hidden ones too. Make 98 Boot Disc, add delpart to it. Boot off it and then type delpart.
    And follow the promts. Also, make sure that HP is not useing the new OEM BIOS. And some of theres are locked for Vista Only. And will not let you revert the OS. If thats the case you will have to revert the bios so you can run both OS’s. Well theres my .2 cents on this. Enjoy

    in reply to: VISTA TCP/IP Question #202300

    Re: VISTA TCP/IP Question

    Did not Install anything. It’s a Program designed to set and change your RWIN,
    and TCP/IP Connection to increase your bandwith on up and down.

    You can see this @ http://www.speedguide.net It’s Called TCP/IP Optimizer.
    And it does help alot. As My Hop count goes from 112 to – 49 that is TTL (Time To Live) See what you think for yourself. I’ve been useing this for years now.
    There also a patch there to unlimet the TCP as in How many Connections are alouded. WinXP SP2 has it set to 10, this will change this 50 or more, it’s a usher pref. Not a Virus and not a trojen. it just rewrites TCP.sys.

    Anywho Got done what I needed to do, and dumped some of the Other Network
    addons in network connection. As I don’t need them and am getting full bandwith
    with about 30 Mbp Down and 500 + upload. Cox Cable Connection Az.

    But Thanks !!

    I’d say to check the power needs for that Card, and at the same time check and see if you have A Bare Min. of 18 Amps on the +12 Rail or Rails Ea.

    Re: Vista Install = BSOD

    Well after feather Studie of this Problem, I have Discoverd that Vista has to Old ATI Drivers in it that the ATI X1600 Video cards do not like. Have found the same problem on a UK web sight. So Were going to test the problem by trying to install the OS with a 9600SE AGP 128 Video card and see what happens. THen change the Video cards back and then add to new Drivers for Vista From ATI. Cross Your Toes on this one.

    Re: Vista Install = BSOD

    Mem has been tested. Out of System in my Mem tester Machine. It’s fine.
    Mem set at Default settings 3-6-3 CL2. (Have Even Set @ SPD)

    CPU Not OVERCLOCKED. The BSOD was to do with a Hardware Issure.
    Leading me to be with the X-FI Sound Card. As there are no True Real Drivers for this Card. (Under Vista)
    Video Card set @ Default Settings in Bios. Video Mem set to 512. Fast writes Off.
    Have even changed back to former Video Test Card ATI 9800 Pro 128. With the thinking that the X1600 Pro 512 Could be causeing and Issure.
    Have even pulled all Sound cards and left the on board audio off in bios during install. Same thing. bsod. Have even consider to Revert Bios From Ver. 24 Final, back to Bios Ver. 19. Really don’t want to,as this could have real problems.

    Re: Crap Cleaner – To get, or not to get?

    I have used the Program a couple of times, and it does do what it says. the only problem I’ve found on it , is if you Don’t have a Backup copy of your OS to reinstall. this CC Program after a few times of running it. will make you Reinstall your OS. As you notice on there sight it always seen to have a new Ver. No.

    LOL, Tells me that after fixing a problem that they have many others to fix.
    and or Redo. I’d say use at your own Risk. And if it FUBAR’S Your System. well you were warned.

    Re: Vista RTM 6000 BSOD

    Well Folks, I’ve been there and done all of that. What I’ve come to is that it does not like this Abit 754. And to let you know also that if I drop the Hyperthead from X5 (Default) to X1 it will install and run… LOL Like a HOG.! (meaning thats its REAL SLOW) 5min boot into windows alone. and then another 5 min to let everything settle down BEFORE I even click anything. or it will drop on its butt hard (BSOD)LOL.

    Well thats ok, I can play with it on my Socket A System. it has no problems with it at all. B SATA Drive or IDE. It just runs good on it.
    And to also let you know I have even tryed the X64 Ver on this 754 System. Same thing, no go. Well thanks for your Ideas and input.

    in reply to: I need assistance with retrieving my hard drive data #202288

    Re: I need assistance with retrieving my hard drive data

    Basic Beep Codes for ABIT AWARD BIOS Motherboards

    1.) No beep at all – this means your motherboard is dead, either due to a defective or underpowered power supply, poorly seated CPU or RAM, or a dead-on-arrival board

    2.) One beep – board is working fine

    3.) One long beep then machine shuts down – faulty, improperly installed or missing CPU

    4.) 1 short(Beep) System booting is normally

    5.) 2 short(Beep) CMOS setting error

    6.) 1 long – 1 short(Beep) DRAM ERROR

    7.) 1 long – 2 short(Beep) Display card or monitor connected error

    8.) 1 long – 3 short(Beep) Keyboard Error

    9.) 1 long – 9 short(Beep) ROM Error

    10.) Long(Beep) continuous DRAM isn’t inserted correctly

    11.) Short(Beep) continuous POWER supply has a problem

    12.) A two-tone siren, generally caused by overheating or out of specification voltages

    13.) Four beeps then machine shuts down. This is because this version of the BIOS will shut down your machine if no fan tachometer signal is detected on the fan header. Make sure you attach a fan to the FAN1 or FAN4 header or clear CMOS to reset to default (no checking).

    in reply to: Need help recovering my cd and dvd drives #202287

    Re: Need help recovering my cd and dvd drives

    Well, young Man I’ll tell you what you did Wrong. You have a Corrupt CD-ROM .Sys File. And the only way that I have ever recovered from those was to dump the drive and try again. You can install and uninstall all day. but the CR-Rom.SYS will still be bad file.

    You may try to unpower the the drives from the 4pin molex plug. and power the system back up. in doing so, go into C:Windowsprefetch And the TEMP File and Edit all and Del.

    Then Start Run %TEMP% And dunp all that. Run Disc Cleanup and Defrag the Drive. Clear all Events in the Event Viewer, Reboot System, then power off and repower your CD-Roms. And see if Windows finds them. If not…

    FORMAT C:

    And whatever you do DUMP NORTON. It’s a resourec Hog, And is Over Rated !
    Norton can cause these Problems too. I’ve seen it a million times over.

    in reply to: XP Pro Vs Vista #202284

    Re: XP Pro Vs Vista

    Well from my little testing and playing with Vista. I know that it’s a 9Gig Install.

    Old test System Specs; Soyo Dragon Plt. Ult. KT400
    80 Gig WD ATA 100 Drive 8 Meg Buffer, AMD CPU 2500+ (Barton)
    1 Gig OCZ Ram 3200r fsb @ 333.
    ATI 9800 Pro 128
    SB Live Sound

    Now as far as installing this on SATA Drives. I’ve had no luck, as of yet.
    But Im told and have read that some people have had luck installing the SATA Drivers. Im useing the Vista Ultmate Edtion. It does use a lot of resources.

    Has system proformace tool, Ram tool. and other toys to play with. But I think that is nothing more then bloatware. and it has all if not most of the TCP/IP
    proacalls in it. i.e as in IV6 etc.
    Does no like to install the older sound card drivers. Have to do that manual. but will not find and install the game port. No biggie, Still in Beta format.
    I think I may like this new OS, but it still needs a lot of work. just hope some of the bloatware gets lost.

    well the only thing I see that Vista has (SO FAR) Is a lot of bloatware.
    But then again, I’ve only just installed it in the last two days. No problems yet.

    It does use 9 Gig of the Harddrive to install (My System)

    I’m Currenting running windows Vista Ult. on a

    AMD KT400 SOYO Dragon Ult. Plt.
    1 Gig OCZ 3200 Ram
    ATI 9600 SE AGP 128 Video
    WD 80 Gig 8 Meg Buff.
    AMD 2500+ CPU

    No Special cooling here, pretty much and OEM System.

    Re: When XP boots I can’t use IE, Messenger, Norton unless i shutdown and restart.

    I’d say your problem lies in the Norton. Dump the Norton, it’s a BIG resource Hog. And since you only have 512 Meg Ram, there’s lies your trouble.
    You can get FREE AVG Antivirus, AVAST Home Free And if your useing winXP 64 bit AVAST will run on 64 bit systems. Or your other only option I see would be to add another stick of Ram that will match what you have installed now.

    Also be sure to disable Services that are NOT being used. that will free up some resources there. be sure to clear your events.

    Re: Xp service pack 2

    Well more then most often, it’s best to install SP2 After a clean install of your OS.
    Then Drivers, And then Winupdate. The reason being is that SP2 Likes to be added frist. No Idea as to why, but it does. Have run into that problem here a few times. Unless your running one of those bogus Corp Ed. then forget it.

    I’d say try that and go from there.

    One thing that will slow your system down is that Norton Software you have loaded. Its BIG resource hog. I will look for something else to use and DUMP Norton. Just disable one time. and see the boot speed up.

    Norton is a RAM hog too. So unless your running 1024 in Ram. I’d dump
    Norton.
