Please help! Multi-boot option not working anymore by q5485
Hi I had successfully installed win xp pro on my pre-installed vista home computer. When I used to boot up, I had the option of selecting one of those 2 OS.

help! why cannot remote connect XP laptop to Vista Home PC? by LunaMoon
I knew Vista Home does not allow remote desktop connection to it. I followed some online hack and install some Terminal Service hack file. It worked when my laptop Windows XP sits close to the Vista HOME PC, when the laptop is using wireless and the Vista is using Internet LAN connection. I made sure my Kaspasky Internet Security Firewall is open for RDP port. But the moment when I move out of my...

Block DiskConfiguration of Vista SP1 64 bit not works rightly by Mazzaroc
HI I can not understand why the block DiskConfiguration / DiskConfiguration, placed in the autounattend.xml file located in the root directory of the DVD of Vista SP1 64-bit, is executed AFTER the display of the window of the partitions of the hard disk. So, what is the trick to make sure that this block is executed BEFORE viewing this window?

Lost "Repair My Computer" Option in F8 Boot Advanced Startup Options Menu by ThunderStorm
Hello Guys I have a one month old Toshiba Satellite. It turned out that a Service or Startup kept making my system "Hang" at my Vista Welcome Screen or I was only able to get to the desktop before it would freeze and the wheel kept spinning, and a stupid Toshiba rep never gave me this option to stop service or disable programs until I did it myself! Anyway I fixed it by going to MSCONFIG and...

F8 Key Repair Your Computer by Andy
I bought my ASE380-E system in May with Windows Ultimate pre-installed. Because of a bad HDD that has been replaced I need to rebuild the entire system from the restore DVD. This has been done, but I’ve got a problem: The F8 key at boot time gives you access to “Repair your computer,” which should provide a choice of repair actions. In my case it just boots up normally. What is the...

block DiskConfiguration of Vista SP1 64 bit by Mazzaroc
HI Having to do a custom installation of Vista SP1 64-bit, putting the autounattend.xml file in the root of the DVD, I noticed that: The erasing of hard-disk and the creation of two primary partitions occur after pressing the Next button of the partitions window creating also problems during the next phase of installation of Vista SP1 64- bit.

Windows 7 Profile Question by JakBob
I know this is a Vista forum, but I do not see any Windows 7 forums. My apologies for posting this here. Perhaps someone can help with this: This has carried through a number of recent builds of Win7 and now is in the RC, 7100 build. Not sure if this is a change in functionality or a bug. If you want to copy the profile of a local user, you can login to the PC (Vista and earlier) as the...

Vista Home Premium 32 bit OEM Anytime Upgrade to 64 bit by Ntelguy
Ok, I've been researching this and have found alot of convoluted answers but none that really answers the question. I have an OEM Vista Home Premium DVD. The disk says it includes anytime upgrade but it also says it only contains 32 bit software. If I want to upgrade (By upgrade I mean clean install to 64 bit but using anytime upgrade to do it) do I need to purchase the 64 bit anytime...
