    What on earth does this have to do with "the cloud"? Unless you mean the interweb is the cloud.

    I thought that the servers powering this would be hosted by google, so yes, the interwebs or the internets as some like to call it.

    Not possible.

    uh oh thanks. This is why I ask before I do.

  • Booting from VHD

    Windows 7 supports booting from VHDs (awesome, you can use VHDs with real hardware!).

    I cannot install Win 7 on my production machine, but I would like to test it anyway: can I install it in a VHD while Windows Vista is on the real disk? The example I saw use to dual-boot between two VHD disks. As an alrenative I could resize partitions and install them side to side old school, but VHDs would make that sooo much easier.

    Why not build it once as a vm and use snapshots?

    Real hardware is sometimes better or required for testing

    This is interesting: united communications for the cluod done well.

  • Microsoft rebrands ​Hotmail/MSN/​Live/.Net/​Microsoft Search (Again)

    Finding a name today is hard because everything has been registered somehow. I think Bing has a couple of advantages as people wrote before: easy to remember, easy to type (though I keep on typing ginb) and in en-US it can be used as a verb (to bing, bing-ing, bing-it!). Personally I don't like it, but probably I will get used to it. I just hope the rebraning does not cover the other windows live products as now I got used to their names.

    I remember when I was looking for a name for my own company: I paid a professional company to help me out and their suggestions were Ipsoa, Hyperion, etc. I sat down with a friend and a few beers and after two hours of brainstorming we came up with Blue Ice. Honestly that sounds much better to me and considering the investment it is definitely worth it. Marketing can be such a waist of money!!!

    Ah yea, when I did it I was running on 32bit.

    So spin up a 32bit VM and install it Wink

    I honestly can't remember the convertor sorry Sad

    well dough! VPC is 32 bits, I kind of forgot it. Thanks

  • DOS under virtual pc

    blowdart said:

    Ah yes, been then. There's a convertor somewhere, or you can use VFD to create a virtual floppy drive and run make14.bat from the MSDN DOS download.

    This is prooving to be a lot of work as I am running in 64 bits... darn. Which converter are you talking about?

  • DOS under virtual pc

    Does anyone know how to install DOS under virtual pc if I don't have a floppy drive? the img files I downloaded from technet are not accepted as is by VPC 2007. Thenk you for your tips.

  • Make integrated Vista SP2 iso's available

    Agreed, ISO images for all products should be available for download. Then a product key should be needed for activation. That would make many lifes much easier (at least mine).
