  1. I think snaks must love my Ute. This is Number 6. Took it for a drive Shopping yesterday.
  2. Looks good. I like it.
  3. Then have a look at this link: http://www.pcantivirusreviews.com/Comparison/Antivirus/Norton-vs-VIPRE/
  4. VHD is the virtual hard disk fileformat that is used as the hard disk for virtual machines in Microsoft VirtualPC. With Windows 7, you can create and mount these disks directly and accessthem in your host operating system. To create a new virtual drive, follow thesesteps: Click Start and in the Search box, type diskmgmt.msc , then press Enter to open the Disk Manager. Click the Action menu and select Create VHD. Right click the VHD and select Initialize Disk, then right click the unallocated space and select New Simple Volume.The VHD drive behaves like a regulardrive; that is, you can install programs on it, drag and drop files to it, etc.To remove it, right click the disk (where it shows Disk 2 or whatever itsnumber is) and select Detach VHD. To mount a VHD drive (for example, one you've copied from another computer), dothe following: In the Disk Manager, click the Action menu. Select Attach VHD. Choose the VHD file you want to mount.Now it will appear as a virtual drive in WindowsExplorer, ready for you to use.
  5. you have to go in to the bios and allow virtualization
  6. The drivers for both of those cards are the same But GeForce Nvidia have new drivers available for download from it's website. They are fantastic with full 3D This is what the new card will give you .

  8. can you see the printer in device manager ?
  9. I just had the same problem swapping from a gigabyte board to an asus. Make sure that your boot HDD is in no 1 on your board. What also can happen is that windows installed the boot loader to a different drive. Then it can't boot. But if you just want to see the drive then all you got to do is wait and let windows finish indexing, it will then show as a normal drive. It may take over 8hrs running the comp on idle Also go: Adinistrative tools/ computer management/ Disk Management Then on the right "More actions / rescan disks
  10. all programs can be installed you only need to change the path. Works even better if you don't run the vm on "C" drive.
  11. You can't activate a retail version with an OEM Key lol If you still have the hidden partition with windows installed then all you got to do is bring it back with your recover CD or press F4 or something like that when you first boot up. If you don't have the recovery partition then you are in trouble as I can't tell you how to get around it.
  12. All security software can be re activated in the VM as it's on the same computer. most you can even activate on a duel boot system
  13. Only one Security software can be used or they will cancel each other out. If you want a good one use Sunbelt Viper. Highly recommended.
  14. There is no need to run any security software on the vm as Viper still protects the vm.
