Workstation 8 Shared VMs on different hard disks for autostart

Hi people:

Is anyway to take advantage of the feature work station 8 sharing VMs autostart with the start-up of the host OS, but have several virtual machines on different hard drives? Ideally, I would like to have VMs on separate hard disks for performance problems. \

I really don't want to go on the road of ESXi right now. Is it possible to "autostart" other than via the shared "VMs" component of VMware workstation VMs 8? I think this would be a trivial feature to add to the workstation 8 and would make great useful for young kids like me.

Best regards, Dave Melnyk

    So what happened to the original hard drive? In fact, I used to have a phone of this series of model HP loaned me to facilitate my work here. I put a bunch of different hard disks in it and was seen troulbe restoration if they plant using the self-created HP recovery discs. Through the Forum, I learned to roll the date in BIOS to January 14, 2014 and then do the restore. In the process, the date resets, but once I did I have no more problems.

    If, as you say, they are completely separate installations on separate hard disks, each with there own version of PS for example, there should be no way that they could interfere with each other! I assume you are using a form any of Boot Manager to load a specific version of Mac OS x?

    I did something similar at the start in a similar situation with client compatibility and not had a problem with either interfere with others!

    However, you share the programs somehow between different OS, so that would be another matter.

    I'm using Time Machine (1 TB), works very well, but because full starting to delete previous backups. Can I add another (LaCie 1 TB) HARD disk for backups? If so, how to proceed. Thank you!

    You can add another drive to accept backups Time Machine... assuming it is correctly formatted for Mac to Mac OS extended (journaled), but things are not exactly "continue."

    You have not indicated if you intend to add the player to the USB port on the Time Capsule, or connect directly to your computer using USB or FireWire connections. Or the other method works, with the option to connect directly to the computer being the faster connection.

    Once the disc is added, you would go in Time Machine preferences (click the "clock" at the top of the screen on your Mac) to add the disk for Time Machine backups and delete the old Time Capsule disk, since backups will go is no longer this destination.

    Since you have a new drive, Time Machine will do a new full backup of your Mac and then go forward with incremental backups.

  • Move from Vista to Windows 7 AND transfer on a different hard disk operating system

    I want to upgrade to Windows 7 64-bit and in the same movement of time the OS Vista Home Premium 32-bit & a Seagate 80 GB HARD drive to two 250 GB hard drives in a RAID configuration. I intend to replace the 80 GB HARD disk with a faster drive Windows XP, so I find myself with a dual-boot system.  Apart from the exchange of small hard drives, the system will be unchanged compared to when I activated Vista.  Since it seems I have to reinstall all the programs on W7 in any case (damn and the breath), I wonder if it will be necessary (for reasons of product activation) or useful (for operational reasons) to first clone Vista to the larger players. I am aware that Seagate provides cloning software, also free that 250 GB seems a little bit today - but he will do well while this PC is still working. In case it is relevant, the Vista is OEM (I built the PC and I bought Vista with the motherboard), but I will get the retail version of Windows 7.  Most experts with thanks...

    We cannot move the operating system from one hard disk to another. However, we can install the operating system on another hard drive or take the whole operating system if necessary system image backup.
    NOTE: You'll have to do a custom Setup to upgrade to the 64 bit version of Windows 7.
    Windows Backup gives you the opportunity to create a system image, which is an exact image of a disk. A system image includes Windows and your control panel, programs and files. You can use a system image to restore the contents of your computer if your hard drive or computer ever stops working. When you restore your computer from a system image, it's a complete restoration; You cannot choose to restore individual items and all of your current programs, Control Panel, and the files are overwritten.

  • How to make a visible USB hard disk for a virtual machine on ESXI 4.1?

    Hi all

    As I am new to the world of vmware ESXI, I always make mistakes or I don't undertand all therefore be complete :-).

    So I have a HP Proliant ML 350 G6 Server installed with ESXI 4.1 and I want to connect a USB hard disk to a virtual machine (SBS 2K 8). Currently, the virtual machine is not able to see the hard drive.

    I already add a USB controller to the virtual machine, but my USB HARD drive is still not visible to my virtual machine.

    Can you help on that?

    Thank you


    Next, add a USB device to the virtual computer (in the change settings tab), there are different things, USB controller and USB devices. Sometimes, you may have to restart the virtual machine.


  • Update hard disk for Satellite 1900 102

    Hi all

    I used to work with a Toshiba Satellite 1900 102 since July 2002 and March my hard drive has stopped working (maybe it was time).
    Where can I buy records 2.5 "that this series of satellites can be supported?

    What is the maximum capacity (in GB) laptop that recognizes the old man?

    Thanks for all your help!


    2.5 hard drives can be bought anywhere I think then, either you contact an authorized service provider or you visit your favorite computer store.

    I think that the Satellite 1900 limits the 28-bit LBA. This would mean that the size of the HARD disk is limited to 128 GB. The maximum capacity is 120 GB that you can use, but I think that 80 GB would be enough according to your amount of files you want to save on the HARD drive.

    If you have any other questions please let us know! :)

  • Update hard disk for Tecra 8000 PII

    Is there a solution to my problem?

    Kind regards
    [email protected]


    I don't know but, I am very pessimistic, you have every chance of casting more than 8 GB HDD to your laptop because there are BIOS HARD disk size restrictions! If the latest version of the BIOS does not support the new HDD it appears impossible to run!

    Can you please send a link where is possible to read the specifications of this 40 GB HARD drive.

    Thank you

    It of also no problem to install Windows on the new HARD drive. For this, you can use the recovery disc.

    Of course, the easiest and fastest is to clone the HARD disk.
    I found a free program called HDClone Free Edition. I didn't use the program again, but it should also work as the other programs.
    For example, I use Acronis image for years. It s not expensive and I never have and problems with the program. It works fast and I never had a faulty image or something else.

  • Need new hard disk for Equium A100


    I want to replace the 80 GB HDD of my A100 for something big.
    I'm guessing it's a SATA, I'll need?

    Nobody knows what is the greatest, my laptop can handle without any performance?
    Just to confirm that it is a satellite A100-027

    Also, I literally get out the old one, stick in the new and then load Windows XP on it? Is it really as simple as that :/?


    Yes, the A100 Equium supports the SATA HDD controller and so you will need a SATA 2.5 HARD disk!

    > Also, I literally get out the old one, stick in the new and then load Windows XP on it? Is it really as simple as that :/?
    Yes, the upgrade of the HARD drive is not difficult.
    In most cases, you will need to remove the HDD from the laptop's HARD drive Bay, then switch the HARD drive bracket to the new HARD drive, then insert the new HARD disc again in Notepad.

    That s it.

  • Replacement of the hard disk for Equium A60-155

    I need to replace the hard drive in my equium A60-155. I need to know what is compatible with this model and if the brand of the drive is important in compatibility. For example should be a drive hard toshiba or is it possible to others.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.


    You n t need to install a HDD in particular of Toshiba. You can also use disk of another company.

    It is important that you use a HARD drive with support for hardware specifications.

    I found these useful discussions on the replacement of the HDD on the Satellite and Equium A60:

    Satellite A60 is very similar to the A60 Equium and so the two series use the same hard disks

  • Second limit of hard disk for P7-1206

    I have a P7-1206 Pavilion comes with a 2 TB hard drive.  I would like to install a second hard drive to use for multimedia files.  What is the largest hard drive that I can install?  I guess it will take a 2 TB drive but if I can go higher?


    The cage of your PC hard drive can accommodate two hard disks.  I would recommend that you add a second hard drive and then redirect your files common files such as: my documents, my pictures, my videos, my music on the second hard drive.

    You can add a second drive hard for the data using only that is greater than 2 TB.
