  1. I've found that the Fedora Media Writer works great for any Linux .iso files. I believe it has a portable version, too. If not, just have a friend with a working computer make the USB drive for you.
  2. If this is a business, you should already have a trusted reseller or vendor you deal with. A legitimate business server has absolutely nothing in common with a personal computer tower. Nothing. Experience with one means absolutely nothing with the other. If this is a business, make the right decision and go with one that has the warranty and support. I can't recommend Dell PowerEdges enough.
  3. If you are like me and have the free version of the ESXI license, Veeam isn't going to be very useful. Veeam requires the paid version of ESXi. I believe there are other tools out there, but all come with various limitations if you don't have a paid license.
  4. One of our development teams mandates MacBook Pros running Windows 10. Don't ask, but it makes absolutely no sense and is a complete waste of money, given they don't ever log in to OSX. That being said, it works perfectly fine.
  5. So then go ask your local IT staff if they mind you putting Steam and some games on the laptop. Easiest, simple solution. A software developer should be able to handle that, and disable items from running at start up, without messing anything up.
  6. We have one specific user who locks her account out several times a day. There's no rhyme or reason why. I've done remote sessions with her to assist in updating her password. I've cleared all cached credentials from Credential Manager. I've disabled every scheduled task that ran as her domain account. There's nothing showing in the event logs for any of her lockouts. We have Solarwinds monitoring in place that knows the lockout comes from her laptop (as opposed to her phone).I'm completely at a loss for this, and several of us have tried with no luck. There's no pattern to the time in which s
  7. It's possible that the drive was corrupted somehow by ejecting from the Vista machine. There are partition repair tools, but I would probably start with something like Partition Wizard to see what the current state of the drive is.
  8. Compatibility. I would try Googling the name and model of the tablet along with AND linux to see what others have found out.
  9. Just use the Windows Media Creation tool to make the USB drive. It's as easy as can be. As for licensing, the Windows 7/8 free upgrade still works, so use an old unused license key to activate the new setup.
  10. Right-click on the Windows icon, choose Computer Management. Then, under Event Viewer, find Windows Logs. I'd check the System first, and then maybe Application. You can filter by critical errors, if you want. Those will often give clues as to what's going on with a system. My comment regarding punctuation was meant to help us help you. You will get more responses and better quality responses if we are able to clearly read about your issue.
  11. We've been giving you the explanations and help from the beginning. It's a security issue, but it was explained how to circumvent it. First response.
  12. So use a password. I lock my work computer every time I step away from my desk. You get into a rhythm typing in your password. I'd be willing to guarantee I log in more frequently, and it's not an issue. That being said, if I hated typing in a password that much, I think I'd drop down on the overclock a little. Those were fun days when I cared about pushing numbers in benchmarks and games, but now I focus on actually using my computers. To each his own, but I couldn't justify an overclock if it meant I couldn't run the computer.
  13. Punctuation makes a world of difference when asking others to help. It seems, I think, that you've done some troubleshooting yourself. However, don't just assume a PSU isn't the problem because it's rated high enough for your needs. It still could be bad. Can you play others games without crashing? You may want to consider a stress test, like a benchmark, to push the system and see if you can make it crash. If so, then I'd start to blame the PSU or overheating. Have you monitored your temps?
  14. There's nothing to Google, to be honest. That's how it works. No computer should be set to autologon or use blank passwords anymore. I don't understand the avoidance of passwords. How often are you rebooting or logging in and out?
  15. A clean install is always the safer method, so that could be considered "doing it right". However, the upgrade has worked well for every one that I've done. Much better than previous versions. Never hurts to have your data backed up first, though.
