Question about Vista upgrade and using Vista on my laptop

My first post so Hello. I'm in North Ireland and just basically competent so keep this in mind if you answer my question below :)

Need some advice on the Vista program upgrade. I am a resident in the United Kingdom and my laptop is an Equium A100-147. I got got a confirmation online and posted number is + a copy of the receipt of purchase to one address in the Netherlands. Also displayed payment (£16,53) at a different address in the Netherlands.

I want to know is the disc I receive an 'upgrade' disc or a full version with an option of a 'complete installation', but also an upgrade? Also if I do an upgrade or a full install and decide that Vista is not to my likeing running recovery disks provided with the laptop will return its supplied as original state? It would be XP MCE.

Vista will have all the necessary drivers for my laptop hardware work or I'm likely to have to install drivers after upgradeing or Vista installation?

Thanks in advance... John

For most Windows upgrades are complete windows versions. This means that you can do a clean install. During the new installation the installation program will ask for the old cd and check it. That's all.

Of course, it is possible to return your laptop in the State of origin with the old recovery disks.

  • Question about MSD + upgrade and migration applications

    Hi all

    I am running:

    TMS 13.2

    TMSPE 1.0

    The two co reside on a Windows 2003 server, pointint in an external box of SQL.

    We also organize TCX 2.3 on our Exchange.

    Now that our server guys have * finally * installed the service pack required on the Exchange, we are ready to migrate to TMSXE but also to upgrade the TMS and TMSPE.

    So we want ot go to:

    TMS 14.2.1

    TMSPE 1.1

    TMSXE 3.1

    In addition to migrate a Windows server 2008R2 TMS + TMSPE.

    I know the different individual guides to upgrade as well as the dependencies between TMS and TMSPE/TMSXE versions.  I'm hoping to do the upgrade and migration all in one and am hoping to get some tips on the best order to do everything.

    My first question - decomission the 13.2/TMSPE server 1.1 TMS, that I can install TMS 14.2.1 and TMSPE 1.1 on the Windows Server 2008, they point to the relevant databases and allow upgrading from there? Or do I need install the new versions TMS/TMSPE on the old server, first of all, upgrade the databases and then migrate?

    Second question - before all this, I run the TMSXE migration tool to extract the data 2.3 TCX, uninstall TCX of Exchange, TMS upgrades and then install TMSXE 3.0/3.1 at the end?

    As all this is running on the virtual machine I'll instant just in case.  Advice on the issues listed above, or general advice about these upgrades would be appreciated

    Hi Nick, IMHO, I suggest you first migrate your 2.3 TCX to TMSXE 3.0.2 by this TMSXE 3.0 installation guide, and then pass the TMS and PE later.

    Yes, VM snapshot backup option before any upgrade is fine.

  • Question about the benefits and experience of the Qosmio laptop

    Hello
    I'm looking for laptop or a pc (laptop is better for mobility)
    TV work with or without window (a multi stunderd (pal-ntsc-secam) tv tuner card)
    and as a VCR (has the ability of dvr with or without window)
    and as a CD/DVD drive (with or without windows of course)
    and as a receiver Satellite (DVB digital and analog RECEIVER card sorts) with or without window
    and as a computer course

    before 2 years when they announced Toshiba Qosmio international worm. I said that, it is
    but now I'am not certain this is what I want to or not because what I hear users is do not internationally function as all TVs available now with the exception of the country of purchase.
    and the digital DVB tuner is just DVB - T.

    I heard that a talk about capacity dvr Qosmio is it good or not?
    and the CD/DVD qosmio player is cloudy! everyone uses sony ps2 to play CDs DVDs. After dvd player and windows pc.

    I read on the other no Toshiba laptop it's ok for pc portable av, but I think it will be better than
    Toshiba qosmio with pc tv tuner card.

    I want to watch one edition & recoreding (with or without) windwos in a laptop.
    and I will not buy qosmio or another unit with external cards and devices just to do the job!

    My Question is what is good for & what is not good for?
    What is the advantages & disadvantages of qosmio?
    What is the best model of qosmio?
    can I put external cards and devices in qosmio and multimedia work as a better laptop?

    If it please help me tell me what I want or not?
    A laptop is better than the Qosmio or other similar devices?
    What is the best external cards and compatible with qosmio devices?

    Give me your advice and experiences with qosmio and thanks in advance for your answers.

    Hello

    I only ever saw a computer laptop with everything you needed (desired) functions and features.
    The Qosmio laptop is a high-end device and you can watch TV (digital TV signal case). The Qosmio support the Qosmio player. This feature allows you to play movies, music, etc, not to mention windows.
    It supports the PCMCIA port, and you can use another type of PCMICA cards with different functions.

    You asked for the best Qosmio. Well, the new Qosmio series at the moment is a G30 and F30.
    You should check the properties of this two Qosmio series.
    As a general rule, in my opinion, it's a good choice to use the Qosmio. But you know it's your choice.

  • Satellite Pro A100: Question about RAM upgrade and warranty

    I just bought my machine and Ive decided to install some more ram. No one knows if it will affect my Gurentee. I can't find anything on the Web site on this topic. Should I get a Toshiba to install official repairman or something?
    Thank you

    Hello

    Please check you user manual. Usually, the slot memory must be placed at the bottom of the unit. If you remove the cover, you should see the slots.
    Usually memory upgrade procedure is described in the user manual so you can upgrade the memory yourself and the procedure of upgrading doesn t affect your warranty.
    But please make sure you use the right modules.
    However, you can also contact Toshiba for the upgrade of memory.

  • A question about the upgrades and upgrades its

    I'll keep this simple;

    I have CS5.5 Production Premium. Suppose that I have upgraded to CS6 production Premium. Nice and simple, now for the question.

    So, when CS6.5 comes out and I decided to update, will it be considered an upgrade to 5.5 or 6 for pricing purposes?

    I guess as more the more expensive software upgrade.

    Quite right - it's of the most recent version that you have to the current version... and for the suites, the shorter the distance the less expensive upgrade.

  • Question about memory upgrade and warranty - Qosmio G20

    I'm looking to upgrade the RAM in my Qosmio G20, but if I buy little ram in a store and fix myself (replacing the old RAM) void my warranty? (it is still covered by the extended warranty now)

    Don t worry! You can upgrade the memory and the guarantee will be cancelled not!
    You can do it yourself. It is very easy and I presume that the detailed statement is in of the Qosmio G20 user manual.

  • A few questions about the upgrade on Satellite A300-144

    Sorry for the typos, English is not my mother tongue.
    I want to ask some questions about the upgrade of a300-144.

    * Some info first.*

    CPU: T2370 ([http://ark.intel.com/products/34445/Intel-Pentium-Processor-T2370-1M-Cache-1_73-GHz-533-MHz-FSB]).
    Chipset: GM965 ([http://ark.intel.com/products/29821/Intel-82GM965-Graphics-and-Memory-Controller]).

    * Questions.*

    1. my frequency of laptop memory at 533 MHz, supports 667 MHz memory controller, memory modules can work at 667 MHz. Is - this because CPU FSB 533 MHz frequency and new processor at 667/800 MHz FSB will fix it or it is hardcoded in the BIOS?

    2 Intel said that the size of max memory for my chipset is 4 GB (2 x 2 GB), but Toshiba says that only 2 GB (2 x 1 GB), who is right?

    3 I know, taken of my CPU is μFCPGA-478 aka socket P, max FSB 800 MHz, max 35 W TDP, so T9500 ([http://ark.intel.com/products/33918/Intel-Core2-Duo-Processor-T9500-6M-Cache-2_60-GHz-800-MHz-FSB]) is a compatible processor or there are some limitations in the BIOS?

    > 1. My frequency of laptop memory at 533 MHz, supports 667 MHz memory controller, memory modules can work at 667 MHz. Is - this because CPU FSB 533 MHz frequency and new processor at 667/800 MHz FSB will fix it or it is hardcoded in the BIOS?

    The speed of the memory is related on the material. This means that the FSB is responsible for the limitation.
    If the FSB would allow support 667 MHz then the memory would also at this speed.

    > 2. Intel says that the size of max memory for my chipset is 4 GB (2 x 2 GB), but Toshiba says that only 2 GB (2 x 1 GB), who is right?
    The memory depends on the chipset. So if the chipset supports 4 GB of RAM, you should be capable of this move to 4 GB of RAM

    > 3. I know, my CPU is? FC-PGA-478 aka socket P, max FSB 800 MHz, max 35 W TDP, so T9500 (http://ark.intel.com/products/33918/Intel-Core2-Duo-Processor-T9500-6M-Cache-2_60-GHz-800-MHz-FSB) will be a compatible processor or there are some limitations in the BIOS?

    It might be possible that the new processor would be fully supported by the BIOS, but in most cases it should not be a problem if the chipset would support the new processor.
    But as far as I know the upgrade of the CPU is not supported by Toshiba or any other manufacturers of portable and its your own risk to run laptop with the new processor.

  • A question about the methods and parameters.

    Hey guys, this is my first post here. I am very new to Java and done a bit of C++ before Java. I had a question about the methods and parameters. I do not understand the methods; I know they can be repeated when it is called, but it's almost everything. I also know that a program should have a class that contains the main method. What I really, really understand on methods is what the parameters are. I know they are in parentheses and that is it. Could you explain what they are? I really appreciate it. Thanks to all in advance. Best regards, Michael

    Taking an example:
    Suppose you calculate area of the rectangle you need two inputs one is the length and the width. Area = l X b, where l = length, b = width

    If your method, say, calculateAreaOfRectangle (length int, int width) will be two parameters as arguments.

    System.out.println ("field of rectangle:" + calculateAreaOfRectangle (40,30);)

    public int calculateAreaOfRectangle (int length, int width) {}
    int area;
    Area = length * width;
    return of area;
    }

    So if you call this method then the output will be returned in 120.

    Parameters of a method are simply the input variables for the method of treatment for all calculations or something useful.

    And we cannot have methods inside the main method in Java. It is in the java syntax and if you do, it will throw a syntax error.

  • Question about the interruptions and priming

    Hello

    I had a few questions about the startup and interruptions in a virtualized environment

    Assuming that, plenty of virtualization (no material assistance to virtualization of memory ).

    1 initialization: in an ordinary PC, the boot process starts with the BIOS, to expansion ROM, back to the BIOS and MBR secondary boot record, then grub (is it) and finally the operating system. In a virtualized environment with VMM running directly on top of hardware (Native VMM), how is the initialization of the different process, as I understand it takes BIOS-> Expansion ROM - > BIOS-MBR-> other record secondary-> VMM-> OS--> applications >. Am I right on that?

    2 breaks: VMM examines the source interruptions prior to the interruption, so in a multicore environment, assuming a 2 processor core, how the VMM decides on the kernel for which the interruption in intended, prior to shipment of the interruption. Interruptions are tag ID, said core ID?

    Thanks in advance

Am I right on that?

    It is simplistic but essentially correct.  A metaphor would be a little better thinking that the hypervisor/vmm is an operating system, except that the process on this operating system are requests or comments OSes.  If the BIOS-> OPROM-> BIOS-> MBR-> hypervisor-> init process of the hypervisor-> reviews of fork () s operating systems.  This can become blurred by the design choices (for example Xen/Hyper-V init start a coded parent hard partition that makes hypercalls privileged to fork() guest OSes; ESXi init runs a very limited subset of applications directly on the hypervisor and ESX Classic is somewhere between these approaches).

    There is a subtle distinction between "hypervisor" and "www."  The "hypervisor" is the operating system of single root (e.g. ESX) who interacts directly with the hardware and has access to everything; a hypervisor is not to be used to run virtual machines.  When we talk about a "hypervisor", the tendency is to describe something which is a BONE (although usually a minimal OS designed only to run virtual machines).  The "www" is the layer that allows a virtual machine run: it provides the interposition, virtualization and emulation services and can be plural (for example a vmm by guest operating system).  Architecture of VMware deal with these two separate components, while most other virtualization platforms merge the two.

    Strictly speaking, the interruption is not transmitted to a guest operating system - receives the hypervisor (or rather the VMM it transmits to the hypervisor), the hypervisor drivers interpret the interruption (for example reading package of NIC, I/O process of HBA, the timer tick completion), then after a new appropriate break in the guest OS.

  • When is MS stop support Vista service pact 2 and a few questions about the upgrade to the new version

    Hello comrades,.

    I have a few questions and concerns, and hope that you guys can share with me some lights here.

    1. What is MS stop supports the Covenant of service about the update of windows Vista 2 / other online support?

    2. my computer is vista based 32 bit, ultimate version. I heard that there are a lot of wonderful things about Windows 8. Should I move to Windows 8, or should I actually wait awhile then buy a new computer with Windows 8 64 bit attached?

    Honestly, it's a question that has been bothering me for some time. But my laptop is 4 GB of RAM, 1920 x 1080 HD display, 300 GB HARD drive at 5400 RPM (cost me a lot - it's a SONY) and have been works very well even with vista, the operating system highly complainted by many others. I think it would be a waste to buy a new computer, including the so-called net-books and i - PAD, I know, they are beautiful and sexy, but looking at their record, I was speechless. Yet knowing 32bits was maximum and MS has already announced that they stopped support for Vista SP1, consider that SP2 is expected online.

    3. how long do you 32-bit based can last? Should I increase the RAM of 4 GB to 6 GB and upgrade to Windows 8?

    4. How about 64-bit based of the future? Or is it true that most of the computer manufacturing starts in the future these application device of the base (not the real computer-driven software)?

    5. or should I forget it all, wait 3-4 years, until my laptop would be a museum piece, then buy a desktop computer which monitor and hard drive is all separated, knowing it is the best technique for the $s and phone for mobile computing laptop use there?

    I understand that this is somewhat a personal decision, but I really appreciate you guys Preview on the path of the operating system! Thank you

    Yes it will work to buy a copy upgrade of Windows 8.   This is a custom installation rather than an upgrade in place once you switch between 32-bit and 64-bit.  However you can still save money by buying the upgrade license.

    More important is that all the drivers you need will be available.  Your computer manufacturer will not write drivers for Windows 8 because the computer has been out of production far too long.

    Windows 8 is a significant departure from previous versions and I suggest that you upgrade to Windows 7 If you are tired of Vista or wait until you buy a new computer before Windows 8.  You read the discussions on the forums of Windows 8 CP.  At this point, there are many critics of Windows 8 due to the removal of the Start button and Start Menu.  Many people dislike having to rely on style Metro Screen start for many things.  It is becoming a major concern.

    To navigate to the Windows 8 CP forums use in the middle of the dropdown at the top of this forum page.

    Note:  Microsoft has not announced that there will be copies upgrade for Windows 8.  Microsoft has already stopped providing copies of upgrade of Office is not yet clear what will be available for 8.

  • Satellite P200 - 17 c: Question about tools Toshiba and Vista's Windows HotStart

    Hello

    I just bought the Toshiba Notebook Satellie P200 - 17 c and I have a couple of questions which I hope you can answer in this forum?

    http://UK.computers.Toshiba-Europe.com/cgi-bin/ToshibaCSG/JSP/productPage.do?service=UK&PRODUCT_ID=132332&Toshib aShop = true

    1. under "Bundled software" at the link above, it says that the 'Toshiba value added"is included, but I do not see this CD/DVD in the box. (My Equium L10 was a value added CD in the box).

    The Toshiba user manual
    Norton Internet Security 2007 (including updates of free Internet for 90 days)
    Ulead DVD MovieWriter for TOSHIBA
    * Toshiba value added package *.
    Supervisor password utility
    Toshiba Assist
    Toshiba Speech System
    Chicony Camera Assistant Software
    Toshiba DVD player
    Microsoft Works 8.5 (with Office home and Student 2007 trial version)
    Toshiba Disc Creator
    Connectivity doctor
    ConfigFree

    Why is the Value Added Package not included and what exactly is included on the CD/DVD for the P200 - 17 c? I'm not too sure if I have all this either. I.e. ConfigFree, connectivity, Toshiba Assist etc doctor, but I check over the next hours and after return.

    2. under "Features", he mentions:

    * Microsoft Windows HotStart for instant-on entertainment *.

    But I don't see any reference to this in the manual of the owner and its operation. Can anyone help here please?

    3. what CD/DVD writing software is included? I'm looking for something like Roxio or Nero, utilities that I can use to create data and discs with audio and also, burn ISO files, but I see is Toshiba DiskcCreator.

    I have no doubt that I'll have a few more questions once I have a good look around the laptop and will post back, but is it for now.

    I would appreciate a response from someone, but as a direct comparison, especially those of the user who already have, or have purchased the P200 - 17 c.

    Concerning

    Brave

    > Why is the value-added package not included and what exactly is included on the CD/DVD for the P200 - 17 c? I'm not too sure if I have all this either. I.e. ConfigFree, connectivity doctor, Toshiba Assist etc, but I check over the next hours and after return.

    The added value of Toshiba package is a collection of applications Toshiba unique like TOSHIBA, TOSHIBA Power Saver components common driver, utility password of TOSHIBA, TOSHIBA Flash Cards, etc.

    Applications of this are already installed on the image of Toshiba which is placed on the Toshiba Recovery CD.

    > Microsoft Windows HotStart for instant / entertainment
    As much I know Windows Hotstart in the Microsoft Windows Vista operating system offers built-in support for launch applications directly from the system startup.
    Manufacturers can take advantage of Windows HotStart to add buttons to access favourable to consumers through panels application front of the chassis.
    In your case, what are the control of Toshiba for example buttons.

    > What CD/DVD writing software is included?

    There should be a preinstalled tool called Toshiba Disc creator.
    The use of this too, you can create original audio CDs, data CDs and DVDs and backup of CD and DVD discs

    Hope that clarified everything

  • Satellite A300 - question about Vista license key

    Hi all,

    I bought an A300-149 with preinstalled Vista.
    One of my friends told me, the partition that was used to install Vista is not useful, it consumes space from my HARD drive, so I deleted the partition and rearranged the partitions that I was going to use them.

    I just found out it's a big mistake to do that, because the contained all partition drivers and Vista with the license key.
    I'm losing my windows license, if I eventually have to reinstall it? (I have the label on the underside of the computer with the key...)
    I can not download the content of this partition (in the form of an ISO standard) somewhere in this site? (and use the key to the label, as it is usually done with the software)

    I paid for this OS... so I don't understand why I have not received a DVD with the software? (When I opened the box, I was looking for the DVD and I wandered why he is missing...)
    It's frustrating...

    Waiting for your answers,
    Thank you

    Hello

    It's really stupid situation now, but certainly not frustrating.
    Here a few facts to better understand:

    New Toshiba laptops are delivered without recovery DVD and images of recovery is recorded on the second partition. All of us must create own recovery media. To do this, this Toshiba has designed little tool called creator of Toshiba recovery disc. With this tool, you can create recovery recovery CD and DVD. When you have these media you can do with the data you want. To install Vista over these media must be used.

    So many people may forget or simply ignore it. Because of this Toshiba has designed reminder with the trace message:

    Because of this, Toshiba has designed little reminder that will be shown in short time after first start with track contents:

    * Important INFORMATION *.

    * your system is equipped with a hard drive recovery system. If you need repair *.
    * your computer in the restaurant to original factory State, you can do it directly *.
    * from the HDD (press F8 when you start your computer, choose 'Repair your computer' *)
    * and follow the instructions in the menu) or create a bootable recovery for this fin.* drive carrier

    * Toshiba recommends you create recovery disk medium using the "Toshiba Recovery Disc Creator" to *.
    * ensure hat you are able to restore your computer to the factory installed state, even if your computer is severely damaged.*

    I can't imagine you didn t see.
    In any case, your friend probably has no idea how it works, and now you have a problem.
    To be honest you have no problem, but the additional costs. You can order the following original Toshiba disk link given by Akuma, but you must pay for it.

    Bye and good luck!

  • Question about the database to use with ESX and Labmanager

    Hello

    Finally my company is buying a permit for Labmanager and ESX server using Labmanager to our tests.

    We had a question about the database that we use for the actual installation.

    Could we use MY - SQL? Or that we have the olbigation to install a SQL or Oracle DB for the whole system to work?

    We prefer to use MY_SQL because it is open-source and will cost less to use for us.

    Thanks in advance for the answer and please excuse my bad English, I'm french spoke first.

    Montreal.

    Lab Manager installs SQL Express as part of the installation and use. If you install also Virtual Center as part of your deployment of Lab Manager (do not use an existing VC server), you can use the database SQL Express is included for small installations of ESX, but MY SQL is not an option. You can search the databases supported in the installation guide for what version you deploy.
