      Watched them too, ok w/ a bit of ff. Seeing is believing :o: I still gotta question the long term effects of the caustic detergent and what about vented caps? As the third guy said “if you have nothing to lose..”

      I do remember reading about a guy who kept a spare keyboard in his swimming pool. I have just washed keyboards. And then taken them apart to find water where I am convinced it would have been a month later, except in the hot Arizona sun.

      I am still coveting that compressor, same day at w***m*** . Oh my another toy, and I am still playing with my cheap, chinese walkytalky……….

      And I am watching videos instead of cleaning.

      That is an interesting package, if I lived in a house with a nice basement or garage I might jump on it. But as it is I am running out of space with things scattered all about, I am in fact taking the next 3 days off to try to get a bit more organized and clean up my act. The blower is a managible size. I will be using my last can of air this weekend but I am thinking of ordering the blower tommorow. ( I was wondering if I could just wait for a windy day and blow all the dust round my home in the air and let the wind blow it away. (Hey Clint hows that for a red neck solution ?? ) I just resolved a point of confusion on my part: It is FF on my Mint install that does not seem to be spell checking, it is working on my XP box) As for the cost , well maybe I’ll need a part time job after I retire.
      Thanks for the feedback, I will let you know the outcome.

      I think I will pass on the dish washer, the detergent used would be way too caustic and I might want to use the computer the same week. And thank goodness I no longer have to worry about the smoke.

      Ah seeing your sig reminds me I want to find just what cpu chipset I put it forementioned box.

    • I have not been able to boot a VHD w/ W7 BCD but I have got it working in a VM so that should be proof that it works.

      Well not booting. I did the format with Gparted which leaves a 1 Meg space before the partition, I am thinking that should work as well as the Windows 7 format. I think I went wrong by choosing the PE 4 option when I had WAIK wchich would be ver 3xx. It still wanted to download something. I fear I have mostly confused myself:p

      I will redo the proceedure when I have a chunk of time. I see one set of directions reads: copy the contents of ‘c:bootmacrium’ to the root of the USB stick. . I will see if I have anything to copy in that directory and try that. Those directions were for a previous ver of Reflect.

      EDIT

      Well I sit corrected. The USB HDD did boot, it just took a whole lot longer than I was anticipating. I figured I would give it one more try and went away for a glass of water. It works. Now I just have to put it on a disk that is actually big enough for and image file.
      Thanks again for the suggestion.

    • in reply to: Using Macrium w/ run as admin #1428232

      Ok here is the source of my confusion (or one at least).
      The image below shows the folder I get to when I chose to “Open Containing Folder” from the context menu of the start menu shortcut(another tweakui thing).

      35737-mr

      I do often start programs this way to use RunAsAdmin when the shortcut does not yield the option to.
      One way or another I will deal with it but I am curious as to WHY I get to the above folder.

      Trying to figure out what it is that Macrium does that seems to run an install routine every time it is run.

      PAE Physical Address Extension? Wasn’t this in use from the late 90s?
      I am not a Linux person but do run Mint 13 off an USB SSD. I find it annoying that if I want to update to a newer version I must wipe everything.
      I will run CPUID on my main machine to see about the PAE thing.
      I finally am dual booting XP and 7 Home ‘Not So’ Premium. I never got XP to talk to my phone that I want to root but thats another story..

    • I have been trying to boot an image and have been having problems. I recently read what I posted some place. I am sorry if I caused anyone unnecessary alarm. This weekend I will be exploring those problems further….

      PS I am getting a spell checker now, it kept underlining my imaginative spelling of unnecessary:confused:
