Re: High-End Phone + Open Source OS?

If you're so worried about removing every Big Brother bit from your household, I think you should get rid of every cellphone you have (your operator can track you anytime), your internet connection (your ISP keeps track of every site visited) and so on.

Re: A required DVD drive device driver is missing.

That was my case. Using the Windows 7 USB DVD Tool, after creating the bootable Flash drive, it wouldn't boot with USB 3.0, but it did with a USB 2.0 port.

Seems that the best things for USB 3.0 ports is for backup use & running VM's from an external drive.

Re: Windows 7 backup without software purchase

Hi iageoscience Well for what I’ve known if i am not mistaken, Windows 7 does have some “few” Recovery options(depending what you are really after)… -Some Windows 7 such as Windows 7 Pro AND Ultimate have a extra features that would allow you to create a System Image Factory and Back it up o...
