I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:GTX 660 DirectCU and HP xw4600 Workstation

My best opinion as to why you are having problems is incompatibility. Looking at the chipset for your motherboard (Intel Beachwood X38), it is linked for a PCI Express slot version 1.1. The Geforce GTX 660 DirectCU is a PCI Express 3.0 card. Not all PCI Express 3.0 cards will work in a PCI Express 1.1 slot. Multiple people have had problems with said issue. If you are looking for better compatibility, I would suggest getting a PCI Express 2.1 (or 2.0) video card. You will have less issues getting it to work properly.

This mobo got me wondering, packs alot of specs :
18 SATA ports (10 are SATA3 ports from the Intel X99 Express chipset, 8 are SAS ports stemming from the LSI SAS 3008 controller) and five PCI-E 3.0 x 16slots for 4-way graphics cards! 600$ motherboard for some serious business, I think this would be ideal for a video editing workstation..

A:Ultimate server / Workstation mobo? Asrock X99 Extreme 11

I'm probably one of the few that uses the ASRock Z87 Extreme11
There is always a market for their Extreme11 series boards. I use mine for a bounch of stuff gaming, media server, video editing with all 22 SATA ports even 2way SLI. Might be a bit over kill 4 way SLI but who knows...

A:Want to buy a workstation for video and 3d

I would not go for an Opteron processor as they are meant more for servers than desktops. For a build like this, you would either be looking at the AMD 8350 flagship or an Intel I7 4xxx.. The main difference is that Intel is faster on single-threaded tasks (that is the major difference), but AMD is ever so slightly faster on some multi-threaded tasks...

Would you be willing to build the computer yourself?

A:Best Graphic Workstation

Well, having 2 Xeon E5s with a weak GPU and little RAM means the PC is aimed at computing tasks, not graphic design. Would you mind building your own machine? It allows for more customization is cheaper, and has a much wider range of options. I am also more familiar with building custom workstations rather than prebuilt (Dell, HP, etc.) workstations. Would you like to build your own or stick with Dell or HP?

Good day to all!

Can a ZOTAC GTX 650 TI run on HP z820 workstation?
If so, can 2 VC run 4 52" LCDs?

Any help is appreciated.

A:Can a Zotac GTX 650 TI run on HP z820 workstation?

Well may I ask why you want a 650ti to be paired with a $2500 dual Xeon monster? Since you have a workstation, I am guessing you do Photoshop or Autocad. Plus what do you mean "VC"? Also, I dont think your TV has DVI inputs nor display ports, only HDMI. Unfortunately the 650Ti only has 1 HDMI.

Does anyone know what the 775 limitations are on this board? I can't access the CPU support and Im not sure of the 45/65nm support? I want to upgrade just the cpu on an old workstation to give 64bit support for more RAM (which I already have). I'd like to put the E5700 Wolfdale in but again, not sure. If anyone can recommend the top 3-4 processors that I can use it would be mucho appreciated.

A:CPU upgrade for workstation

It's not capable of utilizing more than 2GB of RAM, so not sure how you'd potentially need 64-bit to address what it can handle now.

I'd look at upgrading personally, compared with today's technology that motherboard is woefully inadequate and by the looks of things only supports very early LGA 775 processors anyway. You essentially be throwing money at obsolete technology.

I sent my laptop in to be serviced under warranty because the keyboard would not work. was denied service because of water damage but now my screen doesn't work, can someone help

A:My screen won't turn on after service was denied on warranty due to water damage

Water can destroy a laptop or any other electronic device. Chances are that the water sat underneath the keyboard and flowed onto the motherboard where it dried causing corrosion and damaging the motherboard permanently. You could take the laptop to a repair shop and they could give you a repair estimate. Of course, you will have to pay for this repair. If a liquid is spilled on a laptop in the future, immediately open it and turn it upside down. This allows the liquid not to hit and pool on the motherboard, or in a keyboard

A:Gaming/graphics workstation hybrid build

Looks OK, but I'd change the case to a Coolermaster HAF912 (if you don't want full tower, or HAF X, or a HAF932, all of which are cheaper than your current Antec LanBoy, so will save money. The HAF912 is only $49.99 after the mail in rebate (or $10 more without) which is frankly a huge saving on that Antec.

I'd also change your hard disk to a 1TB samsung Spinpoint F3, or if purely for storage needs, upgrade to a 2TB Samsung Spinpoint F4. You could actually run 2x 1TB Spinpoint F3's (in RAID) for the same money as your single 1.5TB.

I am going into my fourth year of architecture school and I am building a desktop. I plan on using my system for Adobe cs5, CAD, Revit, 3ds max, Maya, Ecotect, Virtual Enviroment, Rhino, and Grasshopper. I am having trouble deciding on a graphics card. Is it necessary to have a workstation graphic card to do 3d modeling with these programs? If so, what type of card would you reccomend, Nvidia or ATI?

List of requirements given by the school:
Intel® Core? i7
12 GB+ Memory
2TB Hard Drive
Dual 20"+ monitors
DVD±RW Drive
Dedicated ATI or nVidia video adapter with at least 1-2GB memory
Wireless Network Adapter
Windows 7 ® Home Premium (64-bit)

A:Workstation graphic cards vs. consumer cards

The last question is the easiest - I would go with nVidia because their CUDA processing engine accelerates many of the applications you use. I know Adobe CS5 and Maya take advantage of it but don't know about the rest of the applications you listed.

Adobe CS5 added acceleration for multiple applications with the Mercury Playback Engine which is designed specifically for more recent nVidia cards with the CUDA feature set.,2770.html

Third party review and recommendations for use with CS5 (the card list starts about half way down the page)

CUDA (see more info below about CUDA) supported graphics cards (note that the GeForce or mainstream and gamer cards (for desktop and laptop PCs) are listed near the bottom of the page:

nVidia provides information touting how much their cards accelerate Adobe CS5, including general description about CUDA with internal links to more info for advanced users:a

Here are a couple of reviews on workstation cards you might find informative:

Workstation Shootout: Nvidia Quadro 5000 Vs. ATI FirePro V8800,2701.html

AMD FirePro V9800 4 GB: Eyefinity Meets Professional Graphics,2780.html

The choice between workstation vs. gaming cards is a little more difficult. The higher end gaming cards are very similar to the lower end gaming cards, the difference is primarily in the drivers and service. Workstation drivers have been more finely tuned to the kinds of work done in WS applications - but this can have a signficant impact on performance for those applications. Morever, with the higher price you pay buys you better, generlly quicker support for dealing with issues.

I think the choice must depend on how and how much you use the cards. If you use the applications for several hours a day, the higher productivity of the workstation station cards may pay for the higher cost several times over. Otherwise you might do just as well with the gaming cards.

If you decide to go with gaming cards, you might find some helpful information on upgrading video cards at, but they have no information on workstation cards:

it looks like they use Samsung FlashSSD drives.

they are not to bad actually and far better then i would have expected from Dell.
the Samsung FlashSSD on the website has pretty decent specs but i am not sure if that is the exact same drive with same specs.

edit: in any case you probably would fair better with an aftermarket drive like the ocz vertex 2 or the corsair force but then you would probably not have dell's recovery partition on it etc. unless you clone it.

if you would do that you could either save by not getting a hdd altogether from dell or use the 7200rpm that it comes with as storage drive

After years of building PCs for friends and family I purchased a Dell Vostro 410 for work as it was a good deal.

Anyway as things happen, the jack pin from the speaker system broke off leaving the end in the pc.

Try as I might I could not pull it out and ended up drilling out really carefully. Unfortunately now cannot use the onboard sound and have installed a pci sound card.

From what I can see, there is no evidence of my abuse and I have paid for 4yr warranty, should I come clean and get a new mobo or just keep quiet?

well if u are going to try warranty, do not tell them what u did, and I may get banned for saying that. if the pci card is working just keep quiet and use it.

Anyone like to venture an opinion about what a server in a small LAN of max 6 machines should contain that a decent or hi spec workstation does not have - other than perhaps a larged hard drive?
Any opinions most welcome!

A:Server spec v. hi spec workstation


I run a domain server, there are 2 hard wired PC's, 4 wireless laptops, and 1 media box.
Its spec is a HP XE310 with 1GHZ CPU and 256 meg of memory, it has been running for over 2 years and has never crashed or failed yet.
Over the time i have added HDD's upto 300GB in size.

I run azureus over night on it and it works fine.

I had a chat with someone on here who recommended Linux or Unix as a server, myself I run Windoze server 2000 but thats a personal choice.

Whats the difference between quot workstation quot and quot gaming quot graphics cards Even though I don t know much about coding and instructions is that the main difference Do workstation graphics cards handle programs such as maya and dsMax better because of the way they are built to process code and instructions And do gaming cards handle games like Half-Life and UT k because they are built coded in such a way to perform better for those applications Please go into depth to explain and try to give analogies if at all possible Workstation vs. Cards: Gaming Graphic I happen to be an Animation GraphicDesign student so I Graphic Cards: Workstation vs. Gaming don t wanna waste my money on a graphics card that s meant to be used for something else And even though this is the video audio thread would Graphic Cards: Workstation vs. Gaming you suggest Intel or AMD to combo with the according graphics card So far from what I ve read it seems like Intel is the way to go Thanks in advance for your input nbsp

A:Graphic Cards: Workstation vs. Gaming

so a comparison between mainstream graphic cards and workstation only cards.let see,graphic cards nowadays are focused on only being clocked higher to give higher fps scores in demanding games,they are designed ground up focusing on direct3d applications like 90% of the games.however workstation graphic cards are clocked slower for stability reason and focus heavily on opengl applications.some of them are optimized and carry special plugins for 3dsmax and the mainstream texturing or prgrammatic vertex or fragment shading would be considered high ends in workstations however AA lines and points, overlay plane support, two-sided lighting (fixed function path), logic operations, fast pixel read-back speeds, and dual 10-bit 400MHz RAMDACs and 2 dual-link DVI-I connectors supporting 3840x2400 on a single display are high end.needless to say they are for cad designing for programs like proengineer/autocad and not to mention animation programs like 3dsmax and maya.

now there have always been softmod that you could do on a mainstream graphic card that can make it a workstation one like a geforce to quadro and a radeon 9800 to a firexl through freefirexl but you wouldnt see the perfromance increase and would be bugged continously by its drivers.these workstation cards offer features like occulsion culling,lossless depth z-buffer,line anti-alaising,accelarated clip region,clip planes.two sided lighting,opengl logic and overlay planes.a quadro for example can achieve 80 million lit and textured triangles per second fillrate.they also carry third generation vertex and pixel is a qute from the manufacturers"Alias|Wavefront, Discreet, Softimage, and more. End users can take full advantage of the programmable NVIDIA Quadro FX architecture by enabling sophisticated real-time shaders to simulate a virtually unlimited range of physica l characteristics, such as lighting effects (fresnel effects, chromatic dispersion, reflection, refraction, BRDF models*, etc.) and even physical surface properties (such as casting effects, porosity, molded surfaces, etc.).

For example, car models can be modified on-the-fly to change their clear coat and metallic reflective paint properties; the sheen of a character`s skin can be adjusted through a dynamic range from oily to dry by interactively adjusting a few sliders; or objects can be programmed to dynamically self shadow. Real-time shaders allow these effects to be combined and modified interactively-impossible with simple 2D static texture maps."
there is also the issue of subpixel precision-"Sophisticated real-time effects typically involve multiple mathematical operations that demand high precision to maintain image quality. The NVIDIA Quadro® FX features 128-bit IEEE floating-point precision, making available millions of colors in a broad dynamic range. This results in the highest level of accuracy and the ultimate in visual quality.
High subpixel precision is another major contributor to image quality, addressing visual anomalies that cause models to "sparkle" or "crack." The NVIDIA Quadro FX virtually eliminates this problem by providing 12 bits of sub-pixel precision¡Xfour times higher precision than the nearest competitive product.

Precision continues to be a critical factor when rendering high quality antialiased images-for both line and full-scene antialiasing (FSAA). The NVIDIA Quadro FX architecture accelerates antialiased points and lines in hardware, and supports up to 16X FSAA. And unlike other competitive hardware, NVIDIA Quadro FX products drive FSAA up to a phenomenal 3840x2400 resolution"
besides these feature they carry the same old 8 pixel pipe line and are'nt clocked high compared to there counterpart mainstream i guess the mainstream cards and the workstation cards would run maya and 3ds max at pretty much the same speed but if you wan to make use of the above listed features your going to...

Spent a good while "chatting" w/ NewEgg & Seagate - India about OEM vs "Retail" hard drives.

NewEgg clearly states on their site that many "OEM" Seagate internal drives drives have 5 yr parts & labor "Manufacturer's Warranty" (on the specific HDD specs page).

Seagate - India, tells me that drives designated as OEM will NOT have any warranty (or support) honored by Seagate to the end user.

For those w/ experience in this, what's the actual truth about OEM drives & warranties, from NewEgg or any other E-tailer?

A:Warranty difference OEM hard drive vs "Retail"

OEM you have to go by what the Manufacturer of company says as they're the one going to help you out. So OEM drives if you buy them from a vendor at a computer show they'll replacement for free. The vendor not the Manufacturer company. HDDs I just buy them wholesale and still get the protection from the manufacture. Unless NewEgg is going to protect after 5 years down the line, but you'll have to get that in writting..

Retail - Price is higher unless you get it on clearance then it would be the same price of OEM but you get protection

OEM - Price is cheaper low overhead
OEM - no hardware brackets
OEM - no retail box
OEM - no manual
OEM - no warranty (unless you a PC repair shop of PC vendor since you would buy in blunk)

400 W PS
AMD Opt 175 dual core 2.2
4GB OCZ Dual Channel Platinum (400)
Maxtor Diamond Max 10 7,200 16 MB Cache 300 GB
Quadro FX 3400 256MB


A:Building New Workstation (mobo help)

I'd go with the first Asus board, but if you're using the machine primarily for graphic rendering, buy a good workstation video card....Matrox makes some very good ones. Ati also makes some good workstation cards as well. You'll have to research which will best fit your needs. When it comes to that type of work, it's a driver issue. The cards you mentioned do not have drivers that will give you the ultimate performance for your machine. They're good for gaming, but that's it.

And Maya is a pig when it comes to pulling resources, especially when you're doing a 24hr. render. Get a card with as much video memory as you can afford.

Hope this helps.

hi all,

i was just wondering what a workstation is. i'm kind of confused over the definition. i've seen dell advertising their Precision line of workstations with all the high end stuff (intel xeon, nvidia quadro, etc.) costing $$$, while i saw an ad at one of my local whitebox stores advertising what they call a workstation which is an intel celeron based system with el-cheapo parts selling for under $400 CDN. i aslo went to a local university library a couple weeks back and the terminals where the library catalogs are put are also call "workstations".

so what is a work station? i just want to know

A:what's a workstation?

In the modern day of marketing common words are stretched to mean anything, no point in getting exited over meanings..

A workstation may mean just about any computing device sitting on your desktop.

It may also mean a powerful personal computer (not only in PC sense) used for engineering and design.

The classical and most correct (IMHO) definition is a non-PC desktop machine, usually running UNIX. Workstations are made by Sun and SGI for example.

I have Symantec Ghost version 7.5 and am able to ghost Dell Workstations GX-50 and GX-60 model. We have a new shipment of Optiplex SX280 and can not ghost an image of it. We built one workstation and would like to image other workstations from it. The 3.5 diskette ghost disk I made loads the NIC driver, it binds, but then it hangs every single time on the loading. I used the same diskette on the GX-50 or GX-60 model and it works fine. Can anyone tell me why the loading is hanging? Is it because the SX280 is using the ATA instead of the IDE port for the hard drive?

To synchronize the contacts and messages with my Exchange Server, Windows 10 requires an increase of the work stations security, forcing a new Windows login
after a specified inactivity period.
Once the increased security is implemented users can only play with an inactivity period range of 1 to 5 minutes.

In my capacity of Administrator of the network, I would like to be able to increase the value of the inactivity value beyond 5 minutes for those stations that
are not exposed to public access, which requires that Microsoft communicate to me the name and address of the Register key which controls the inactivity period after which a new login is required.

I really need that Register key to resolve my problem!

Hello I adapted - HP 32GB Upgrade 4GB Memory to Workstation to GB long ago however with Adobe applications bridge photoshop loading slowing and so forth I elected to increase the memory to GB DDR - or DDR - Fully Buffered First in Cmos - the memory was recognized then in windows bit the memory was recognized And the difference Memory Upgrade HP Workstation 4GB to 32GB - upon booting and logging in was remarkable - until I began to open application For example - all Adobe applications lauch - and then hang - with 'not responding' In short after upgrading I am unable to work because of hangs not responding conditions To work I may have to remove all but one memory leaving GB At least I could work - in very slow processes - which is better than no working with GB Is there a fix that will allow correction so that I can use GB memory without encountering multiple not responding conditions Office works fine - very quick Let me know how to fix a harmless memory upgrade - following all conditions expected of HP upgrade methods If this needs to be inserted the graphic card is FX recommeded by HP for this pc Thanks

Noticed that a couple of the online shopping networks are giving quot Lifetime Support quot on many of the computers they are selling They never talk about the quot Warranty Period quot not even once during the hours long show I can believe that with quot Lifetime Support quot that years from now I could call one of the major computer support numbers and they would answer some questions support vs Warranty Lifetime but are they trying to deceive us in a way so that we as customers could call in in years and complain of the computer not booting up and they would diagnose it and say the hard drive is bad and they send out a new one FREE Come on - most of us that have bought computers in the past know better but there are new first time customers and older folks that aren t that familiar with using Lifetime support vs Warranty or purchasing a computer that certainly can misunderstand that there is a BIG difference Lifetime Support is NOT Lifetime Warranty I think this kind of sales bull needs to stop - their lying by omission Just makes Lifetime support vs Warranty me furious when I watch them Your thoughts please nbsp

Hello all. I am setting up a laptop for a new user on our server, and while trying to add the user account locally to the laptop from my server administrator account, I'm receiving a message that "The user could not be added because the following error has occurred: The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed."

Thank you in advance for any help. I'd be glad to provide any other information that may be helpful in solving this. I have searched some, but have discovered that most help I've found is too jargoned for me to truly understand. I can handle most basic things, which is why our company (that doesn't have a formal IT person) has me handling most IT issues.

I am in the process to deploy EMET in my organization. My goal is to set all the settings using GPO.
As it is indicated in the User Guide 5.2, I already copied the EMET.admx and EMET.adml in the domain server and I managed to set the settings. I run gpupdate /force in the client and it works flawless.
But now, I wanted to configure the Certification Trust as well using the CertTrust.xml included in the EMET package.
how could I manage this globally in the domain?  I dont see any option in the GPO... and unfortunately, we dont use SCCM.

Does anyone here have experience with VMWare workstation's 'management server'?
I run offline virtual machines but they require BOTH encryption and management, because of this I have consistently been having issues with this management server, the error is 'could not open virtual machine [path], failed to contact the restrictions management server. Check the address of the server', which is not surprising that it can't connect to the server; the host is offline. What does surprise me is that I've maxed out all the settings with regards to this management server (maximum 999 days without contact), but the error is STILL shown, really, 999 days have not passed since I created this virtual machine so why is the error being shown?
Does anyone have any solutions to this problem that should never have arisen?

Has anyone carefully reviewed Comodo's hardware warranty? It will pay the user $500 malware permanently damages the system - beyond any repair - with CIS installed. In 99.99999% of cases a clean install of the OS fixes everything. And how are you going to prove that malware permanently broke your HDD, your screen, or any other hardware?

Comodo's Warranty is phrased and termed in a manner that makes it a virtual impossibility that Comodo will ever have to make a pay out.

It's all fine and good that Melih stands behind his products - but the warranty is absurd.

This illustrates the ridiculousness of it all...

I, HJLBX, will personally insure anyone - absolutely free of any cost - against "The Sky Falling," and will pay anyone who presents a valid claim - $1,000,000,000.

Such insurance is worthless.

Just sayin...

If anyone wants that Falling Sky insurance, then send me a PM.

I'm using VMWare Workstation 11, which is installed on Win 8.1. I have no issues with USB 2.0 drives in the guest operating systems, but for some reason, can't get 3.0 drives to work. I've tested this using Win 7 and Win 8.1 as guest operating systems.

I've done a bit of searching, but can't seem to find any reports of my exact issue. The only documentation I could find is for version 9, because it wasn't supported in that version. Looks like version 10 and beyond it should not be an issue.

I created some virtual machines with VMWare Workstation 11
but they play only on a host with Workstation installed, i.e., they won't play if only the free Player is installed on host. Even though it is a current version of Player.
Can I convert these machines so they will play on a host that has just Player?
what about VHD format? If I convert to VHD, will it work in Player?
If so, maybe someone knows a good converter. mine won't open the newer VMDK format.

I have Windows 8.1 installed on an external hard drive. actually you would on an internal drive (WinToUSB - Install and Run Windows on a USB Drive)
and I want to use it with my main PC without booting entirely from it... which is where VMWare comes into play.
So, want to boot from external drive containing Windows 8.1 using VMWare
Anyone know how?

A:Booting from external hard drive in VMWare Workstation?

Hi there
AFAIK the only way to boot Windows from an external HDD is to either use a Windows to Go system (Enterprise) or create a bootable Linux system (these boot from external devices) and run a VM from the Linux.

I've done this many times on an external USB connected via a SATA==>USB connector on a laptop. I use an old Laptop HDD -- works fine. If you have a SATA==>USB3 connector even better or an external USB even better.

Here's a link about this I made a while ago.

How to make Portable Windows system (any version)

This system will run TOTALLY from am external HDD even if there's NO internal HDD in the HOST computer. Other solutions like attaching Virtual HDD's are OK but this then NEEDS the initial boot from an internal HDD to mount the VHD. My method runs 100% from the external HDD.

Try re-installing VMware. If that doesn't work, make sure that the firewall on host computer isn't blocking VMware, then update or install VMware Tools in the VMs. (I could give you step-by-step instructions but I'm sure you won't need them)

I have been using VMware Workstation with various OS's for a while and think it's great. However with my Windows 10 x64 TP guest, even though I installed VM tools - it's almost like VM tools isn't running. I can't drag and drop files from host to VM desktop, and although USB flash drives say connected, they don't appear in file explorer.

I installed 10 as an 8 VM, if you get my drift, so it's either me doing something stupid or 10 being a bit too new for full Workstation 10 functionality. Have uninstalled/reinstalled VM tools. Any suggestions welcome.

I'm confused... So is this editing rig running Win 7 or Win 10? If it's running Win 10, you might try going back to older Win 8.1 graphic driver. I'd suggest uninstalling your current driver with DDU and reinstalling Win 8.1 driver 344.75 or 347.88. Also make sure your chipset driver is up to date and any other drivers that might have been updated for Win 10 from your motherboard manufacturer.

I have this small thing that I want to do: When my laptop resumes sleep/hibernate I want to run a small script (.bat) that requires to be run as administrator.

I have created a Task on Scheduler.
Under General tab I've been experimented with all the options.On Triggers tab I've used "logon" and "startup" which have succeded but are useless to me; so the only active I have now is "workstation unlock".Actions: start a program
So, while my task is able to start on logon and startup why can't it start on workstation unlock?

I have a Windows 7 32-bit workstation in a workgroup. For the past few weeks, our vulnerability management scanner has not been able to scan this particular machine. I added the registry value of LocalAccountTokenFilter to disable remote UAC to be able to
scan. I am able to manually scan after I make the change but if the machine reboots, or if I log out after making that change, everything reverts back to default.
This happens when I make any Local Security Policy change as well. If I make any changes to the UAC options, they are completely undone after I logoff my session or reboot. Has anyone seen this problem, and know a fix for it? Any help will be so appreciated!

I have a secure computer that cannot access the internet directly. The windows and Internet Explorer are both out of date. How do I copy the latest version it has and then go to another Internet-connected PC and download all updates on a flash drive or CD for my offline workstation?

When I have my old server(winserver2003), all my clients is set-up to automatic IP, and it works all fine,
When my old server had crash, I've acquire another server(winserver2008), then all my clients can't pick up an IP address, therefore they can't connect to our network. But, if I set the IPs manualy, then I can join the network & it work fine.

My IP range is xxx.17.48.2 - xxx.17.48.250
My router address is xxx.17.48.1
My Domain server address is xxx.17.48.180
where xxx is the same.

As many of the users in MT use Virtual Machines, between the two free options, which one you recommend and why?

What features does each contain that you use?
What OS do use it inside the VM (Virtual Machine)?

A:Oracle VirtualBox 5.0.16 or VMware Workstation Player 12.0.1

Oracle VirtualBox version 5 because...
It's Free and has regular updates, bugs are fixed quick + OpenSource.
Works amazing on Windows and Linux (my malware research setup / automated malware analysis is on linux) + VirtualBox-Tools give VirtualBox compatibility and usability (faster and better performance then VMPlayer).

Hello guys

I have the HP Workstation and its Installation Disk. I also have a Acer Laptop with its System Image on four DVDs, but not marked ACER.

Had some problem with the HP Workstation and decided to reinstall the System Image, forgetting the Disks are for the Laptop.
It loaded Okay but when No.4 Disk loaded and launched I realised my mistake and tried to stop it.
Now Windows Professional logo is on the Desktop, but seems to have stopped launching.

It is now showing, 'Installing Drytek Launch Manager'.

Any help with this, please ?. Thanks

Hi there I got esxi running but not really satisfied with performance and the hassle Esxi PROPRIETARY and workstation KVM NON and than vmware better of controlling VM's from a remote computer So I decided to re-visit using KVM can be considered Linux's equivalent KVM better than vmware workstation and Esxi and NON PROPRIETARY to HYPER-V KVM is free of course it's part of most KVM better than vmware workstation and Esxi and NON PROPRIETARY Linux distros - but RHEL and Centos naturally has this down to a fine art so install documentation is really good It turned out surprisingly easy from a CENTOS HOST and I O performance is STREETS ahead of both VMWARE workstation and the VM running under Esxi The other nice thing is that you can also control the VM's on the LOCAL HOST PCI passthru works fine and you can use quot paravirtualisation quot if you want to install specific hardware drivers on the VM to extract even better performance VMware esxi VM's can be converted easily enough - or re-installing the Guest OS is a doddle anyway Note - you have to enable VT-X in the BIOS on intel CPU's --usually all done by default these days -- for AMD there's an equivalent but don't know what it is Very happy with this solution -- you can install a minimal Linux system and control everything via a CLI if you don't want a Linux GUI I'd recommend doing it from the GUI for beginners For those playing around with Linux Hosts who want to try other ways of running Windows Guests I'd recommend having a look at KVM -- it really is surprisingly easy -- AND STABLE Also being able to control the VM's from a local host is a great advantage for quot Home user quot who don't need Enterprise type solutions Install KVM QEMU on CentOS RHEL Note -- there is a bug you can't use a PHYSICAL ISO to create the VM - an Image iso disk based iso works fine This works for most other common distros too --opensuse Ubuntu Linux Mint etc Have fun Cheers jimbo
