How to save a copy of Windows XP that has been created by an image?

I used 'Image for Linux' to create an image of a PC with Windows XP, SP3.  With that done, I can copy the image to a new PC and it works fine (assuming that I stay within the limits of the PC HAL).

My problem is that I don't have to enter a new key of Windows XP when I installed the image on another PC. for example, I use a license of Windows XP on two PCs.  Since I want to be legitimate on my software license, I tried to activate Windows XP license to new PC - but the computer says that the license is already activated.  So it is logical that the new PC would react like that - I put the picture of an activated copy of Windows on a new PC, the new copy of Windows must also think that it is enabled.

All this brings me to my original question: how to save a copy of Windows XP that has been created by an image?

Hi RichardMatt,
I recommend you contact the customer service of Microsoft for queries on activation for clarity.

    Reports was created inside the grid (report tablespace_usage), is there a way to do that effectively save? Now, I do it manually, by selecting each report and then saving them as a word document. I still have 200 reports to go. Any help would be appreciated.


    One possibility is to simply add another email address to the list of recipients for reports that goes to a read-only shared mailbox or a mail deposit box and leave the backup on the e-mail server to take care of it.

    Hi Dorene33,

    ·         What exactly happens when you try to download the software?

    ·         You receive an error message?

    ·         You are able to access drive from devices and printers?

    ·         What happens exactly when you double click on the drive and try to open it?

    I suggest that you scan your computer with the Microsoft Security Scanner, which would help us to get rid of viruses, spyware and other malware

    The Microsoft Security Scanner is a downloadable security tool for free which allows analysis at the application and helps remove viruses, spyware and other malware. It works with your current antivirus software.

    Note: The Microsoft Safety Scanner ends 10 days after being downloaded. To restart a scan with the latest definitions of anti-malware, download and run the Microsoft Safety Scanner again.

    Important: While running scan on the hard drive if bad sectors are found on the hard drive when scanning try to repair this area if all available on which data may be lost.

    Hope this information helps.

    If the Album has been synchronized from your computer using iTunes, then make a new synchronization without the selected album.

  • OIM11gR2ps2 how to use OID - Connector for updating a user that has been created through LDAPsync?


    I have two connectors configuration, a database connector generic to an Oracle database that the provisions of a user account (it works fine). The second connector, I am still getting set up properly is a LDAP connector specifically OID -

    Use case:

    A user creates an account through automatic recording and is created simultaneously in OUD ldap with the johnDoe1 username. johnDoe1 connects in IOM and asks an instance of application called DBAccount. They fill out the application in all there information (user ID, fname, lname, phone, address, title, etc.). Once they support demand goes through the necessary approvals and after that it's approved successfully the info is put in service to the database. Once this operation has been successful, I would like to provision an update a users ldap entry that was created in the custom attribute ldapsync is called OUDappusername, this attribute is an attribute with value mutli because if demand for the other apps, they will be updated in the OUD aswell. This OUDappusername will be generated by an event handler or to pre-populate the plugin and the format will be "app |" user name' where app is the app they ask and User_name is the user name they use to connect to the IOM, for example "DBAccount". johnDoe1. If they keep asking other apps they will be updated in the OUDappusername so that they may have DBAccount | johnDoe1 and ask another application called app2, then they will also have app2 | johnDoe1 and so on.

    Is this possible with the connector and how do I set it up to users update rather than set up a new account in the OUD?

    The question:

    I currently have the configuration of connector so whenever I have set up a user creates a new user rather than allow me to simply update a user. It is possible to configure the connector for updating existing users is born through ldapsync, rather than those created through the app instance configuration. I have found no documentation on that.

    Thanks in advance,


    Edit #1 - I changed the wording and added more details.

    Edit #2 - I reworded my question to be more specific and focus on a single issue and changed the title to be more specific.

    I just wanted to post what we found the answer. We did not use the connector, but what we did was we created a custom, adapter, which is a small and associated java class then new task in the process definition for the database resource in the console design and we made calls to jndi for the ldap Protocol to update this attribute multivalue. It was very quick and easy and could be tested before the implementation of the IOM. Thanks again for all the help and talk me through the procedures.

    Thank you

  • Why Windows Explorer crash if I shift-delete a directory that has been created as part of the 'libraries' of in the Exporer in the pane hierarchy of directory on the left side of the Explorer?

    I just discovered a very basic bug in Windows 7 file Explorer:

    Open the folder "libraries." Select any item under 'Libraries', for example 'Documents '. In the hierarchy of folders in the 'Documents' left right click and select 'New'-> 'folder '. Select the directory newly created in the hierarchy of folders (always in the left frame of the Explorer). Right-click in the right frame and select 'New'-> 'text Document '. Open the newly created document, enter text and save it. Now, again select the new folder in the hierarchy of folders in the left frame and type + . An error message appears stating something like "C:\Users\Public\Documents\FOO refers to a location that is unavailable. It could be on a hard drive on this computer or on a network. Make sure that the disc is inserted correctly, or that you are connected to the Internet or your network, and then try again. If it can't be located, the information may have been moved to another location. »
