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?

You cannot actually clone the same system between different computers because of hardware not matching. You can though create an image with updates, programs and all and install to different computers. Use windows easy transfer wizard. sysprep I believe is hidden in windows somewhere natively. Fun I guess. Microsoft easy transfer. These should
migrate between hardware. Sysprep I believe, create a system, update, add wanted programs and it will act as if it is
new install and will recognize hardware as if it were a new install. -

Jesus fuck 3.47 gb can't be idle right for windows? Is that Windows 10?

I remember getting Windows 7 down to 750mb ram usage as low and stripped down as I could with Task Manager open. 3.5 has to be with other programs open.

Also, just buy more ram. It is cheap and because everyone seems lazy as fuck or don't care about programming lean programs anymore, it is useful. Modern firefox soaks up like 2 fucking gb it seems. Unfortunately, anything less than 8gb is pretty annoying for anything beyond really basic web browsing. 12 is min for any kind of regular desktop now unfortunately.

A cheap 4gb stick of ddr3 is only like 20-30 bucks. Any of those 19.99 +S&H TV scams are worth far less.

Is there an optimizer that will stop windows 10 drivers from assigning my entire goddamn memory space to the non-paged pool and doing nothing wiht it?

This has been going on for 3 months.

And why the fuck does the start menu/search bar not pop up like, a third of the time I hit the button?

Why the fuck is a quarter of my memory in the non-paged pool, which should normally be like, 80-300 megabytes? I'm not getting SMBLoris'd or anything. This is just my goddamn computer.

AND WHY IN THE FUUUUUUUUUUCK does the suite of tools from microsoft that allows developers to debug drivers in the non-paged memory pool break features of Visual Studio that developers need? I can't even inspect this shit because of that.

Windows 10 is at least twice as much of a shitshow as it was when it came out. This is the opposite of progress.

Depends on your router. Clients is likely how many devices are connected to your computer. Your connection, a smartphone, her connection.

Try this is your router like way out dated. you can check the 'build version'. If it's out dated you can flash an updated version which is basically easy. Often just pressing a button to update on some routers.

The 'port scan' may just be some random nothing. https://www.grc.com/shieldsup to see if any ports are open on your computer. It's as basic a start as you can get to start. If all is green then it should be cool.

numbers like 209.143.252.20 are IP addresses. This would translate to quaker.com

What router do you have? poke around. Get a newer router. Most routers can translate like above so you can see what addresses are being accessed.

Sort of depends. I rate this shit by potential audience. While some platforms may be more robust and easier to use, if the video isn't seen, what good is it? You don't want to be uploading to some obscure, bottom of the Google search page, platform even if it is the best technically out there. Unless of course that is your audience. Usually the Youtube and FB live streams are where the viewers are at.

tl;dr: Every device using WPA2 is attackable and has to be updated. Good luck with that. Ethernet Jesus related.

https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2017/10/severe-flaw-in-wpa2-protocol-leaves-wi-fi-traffic-open-to-eavesdropping/

>Researchers have disclosed a serious weakness in the WPA2 protocol that allows attackers within range of vulnerable device or access point to intercept passwords, e-mails, and other data presumed to be encrypted, and in some cases, to inject ransomware or other malicious content into a website a client is visiting.

>The proof-of-concept exploit is called KRACK, short for Key Reinstallation Attacks. The research has been a closely guarded secret for weeks ahead of a coordinated disclosure that was scheduled for 8am Monday, East Coast time. A website disclosing the vulnerability said it affects the core WPA2 protocol itself and is effective against devices running Android, Linux, and OpenBSD, and to a lesser extent macOS and Windows, as well as MediaTek Linksys, and other types of devices. The site warned that attackers can exploit the flaw to decrypt a wealth of sensitive data that's normally encrypted by the nearly ubiquitous Wi-Fi encryption protocol.

>"This can be abused to steal sensitive information such as credit card numbers, passwords, chat messages, emails, photos, and so on," researcher Mathy Vanhoef, of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in Belgium wrote. "The attack works against all modern protected Wi-Fi networks. Depending on the network configuration, it is also possible to inject and manipulate data. For example, an attacker might be able to inject ransomware or other malware into websites."

Depends on where you live, whether your ISP cares, and whether rightsholders are sitting on the torrents. You can go a long time without getting a copyright strike, and then if your ISP changes policy and you're downloading something where the rightsholder is really protective, suddenly you're getting them.

Never gotten one with my VPN on. Also, less common sources and protocols can keep you safer.

So, I get my internet as part of my unlimited data cell phone plan, using my phone as a wifi hotspot and picking it up with my pc. But where I live I get shit cell reception. Mountains and all that.

Before anyone suggests I change how I get the internet, I live out in bumfuck egypt and there is no cable, no dsl, no wifi. This is my only choice other than satellite plans with unacceptable data caps. So it's this or go back to dial up.

Anyway, I figured that maybe if i could get more than two bars in the room where my computer is, my download speeds would improve.

I have heard of various signal booster products, like on amazon, with a greatly varying price range, so I thought I would ask people on a tech board about it.

Have any of you ever had to solve this problem for yourselves, and how did you do it? Did you buy a signal booster, and how well did it work? Was it worth the money, and easy to install and use?

At the moment, I'm pretty new to wireless, wi-fi, cell phones, and high speed internet in general, unfortunately, and I gotta start somewhere.

The best solution would be a high gain antenna mounted on the outside aligned with the cell phone tower that gives you the best reception.

First get the opensignal app for your phone and find out the best reception on the locations you could mount an antenna and the direction of the cell tower you are connected to at this point.
Then get a 4g modem with with an external antenna bnc connector and a high gain 4g antenna.
I'd look for "4g antenna" on aliexpress (I never buy electronics from amazon if it's a Chinese product any way)
If you don't know which one to buy go on sort by orders and get the most popular one.
