OS cloning. by CharlesSmallfoot.tiff - Thu, 19 Oct 2017 04:36:25 EST ID:MM80YYCH No.121413 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Sooooup /tech/?

After Windows 7 committing suicide like 40 fucking times between 3-4 oem versions on shitty laptop pawnshop specials, I've said fuck it and just want to clone 1 fresh Windows 7 install to 4 or 5 hard drives. I don't give a fuck about licensing and their stupid windows genuine shit always ends up breaking and annoying the fuck out of me anyways.

If I were to just stop dealing with oem factory resets, lost passwords, and shit and just pop new hard drives into my cheap computers; would that work if they are system image cloned from 1 "master" clean install that is never used? I know they won't be activated and would need whatever daz loader that exists now to get rid of all the other black screen nagging shit but would the OS work or is there some blocker programmed in to keep from raid duplication or creating multiple system images? I've googlefu'd and failed, I don't see an answer if you can clone to separate hard drives without the host drive baleeting itself.

I really just want to have dual boot Windows 7/8/10 on my other computers who all started out as OEM versions anyways but ended up running various linux distro's. Thanks hiffwe

Bonus: Didn't daz loader get turned into malware? Is that also only for cracked versions or just any windows genuine spam?

I worked on a computer from a pawn shop yesterday. It was an as-is desktop. Gaming computer, even the card is will self was and still is over $250 bucks new. Assumingly by the way it was acting, constant reboots, the restoring windows something message, freezing for a few minutes. Possibly the boot sector was corrupt. For that reason the way it was acting it had a repair partition fail. + the manufacturers useless software with the repair partition, it failed.

So take out the video card, wipe the drive from an external DVD, looks and acts good. Reinstall win 10 and installs and works flawlessly. Was not stuck on any install process and update.

SO yea pawn shops I do know charging $125 for a computer I would not even buy for 10 dollars do exist, but pawn shops, may not even know anything about computers. So it isn't a bad idea to keep ones eyes open. When backup partitions fail it's easy$$

win 8 is basically nothing, few companies, programmers, etc put any effort into supporting, developing software for it from day one.

Well adobe sells classes and crap and people lots of people make a living off teaching their apps. So they are intentionally complicated so you can’t just figure them out. You have to fork out tons for the app then tons more for the training. Because Adobe (appname) is “used by businesses and professionals” and people put up with it because they need it on the resume.

It’s all just to make money.

Is there anyway to install specific (as in, have downloaded the individual .msu file) Windows Updates in a recovery environment? I really don't want to have to go through the hassle of using "System Restore" or "Refresh Your PC", and I am almost positively certain that if i install these updates it will fix my problem.

You're not going to run an msu. If you're actually certain that it will make the system bootable then I presume you know what needs to be changed and it might not be too much work to extract the contents and apply the necessary changes manually.

From my understanding, Meltdown has already been patched out of pretty much all OSs and Spectre is soon to follow (though the patch will supposedly come with a performance hit due to how it will impact speculative compute).

Just ride it out until it's patched. Spectre effects every x86 processor made by AMD and Intel over the past decade so there really isn't a lot you can do to be proactive about it besides taking your device offline until it's safe.

Okay so can you tell me what is broken here?

I was playing some games on my desktop, suddenly the monitor goes blank and white. Teamspeak is still working though so i assume it's the monitor.

I restarted and it was still white as soon as i turned on the monitor with no monitor splash screen, I tired multiple cables etc. I also connected a laptop to the monitor and i only got the white screen again.

I grabbed an old TV which has VGA / HDMI input, and tried to connect the pc to that instead however although the TV recognises something is attached there is no display only a black screen. I connected a laptop to this TV via HDMI and then VGA and both displayed perfectly fine.

Have i somehow fried both the monitor and the PC? I mean teamspeak was still working after the screen died but the fact that i cant get any image out of the PC on a separate display is concerning me.

Sorry for the shit thread, i'm just a bit frustrated.

Yeah i've tried
Monitor & P DVI, Displayport & hdmi
TV & P VGA & HDMI

I was going to reseat the graphics card but i figured since the monitor seems fucked anyway that probably wont fix anything.

Monitor just displays white screen when disconnected from everything and won't show up any brightness / contrast options and doesnt come up with "no signal".

Anyway i was thinking power surge myself but surely the PC would have crashed instead of just ruining my card?

If it was a surge it sounds like one component on the card ate it. You should open the case, see if the fan spins, and look for any obvious damage.

Never mind think i've fixed it, it was an old TV and looks like its VGA input is damaged so that's why there was no display with that cable.

I just got a picture up using a different HDMI cable than the one i was using.

So looks like a faulty port and a bad cable was causing my confusion.
I guess the monitor just decided to take a shit and die, only bought it on the 1st so i'll just get it replaced.

Thanks for giving suggestions though man

I have a phone and the micro usb port to the phone stopped working on it.
This means I will never be able to charge it again and I will have a dead phone.

Is there anyway to rescue my phone from the brink of death?

Turns out if you change to a new Bluetooth adapter, and you don't uninstall the old one, Windows will remember the devices that were connected to it FOREVER. There is some fuckery behind the scenes and if Micro$oft hasn't fixed it by now, they arent gonna. Maybe someone smarter then me can crate some registry key editor to fix it?

Luckily I still had my old adapter and it worked long enough for me to plug it in and uninstall it, because as far as I can tell the only other option is a fresh windows install.



So just remember, if you change Bluetooth adapters, UNINSTALL THE OLD ONE.
