Virtualization :: Windows 8.1 Under Linux - Which Distro For 3D Support

Jan 14, 2014

Running a Windows 8.1 Virtual machine from a LINUX host with 3-D support working. What distro are you using. (VMware player / workstation).

I've tried SUSE and DEBIAN - the VM runs perfectly except I can't get 3-D support or hardware graphics acceleration.

Under Windows as host (W7) no problem !!.

Setup Installation :: Cannot Dual Boot Windows 8.1 With Any Linux Distro

Feb 14, 2014

I really want to dual boot Windows 8.1 with Kali Linux. ~ 64 bit.

I'm having a lot of doubts about it. A lot of people write that their Windows 8.1 system got, excuse my language, ****ed up. They say it's because of OEM/UEFI & so forth.

I'm unfortunately not so experienced with dual booting so i wouldn't really know what to do. What's the problem with Windows 8.1 & Linux, what do I need to do in order to install it successfully without errors?

Windows 8.1 - Processor Doesn't Support PAE / NX Or SEE2?

Oct 19, 2013

I have a 6 yr old Dell Dimension E520 currently running Windows 8. I tried to upgrade to 8.1 but have been denied because my processor doesn't support PAE, NX or SEE2. I've read some posts that stated that this was an issue preventing them from installing version 8. It wasn't an issue for me since 8 installed. My questions are why would this effect me now and is there a work around?

Windows 8.1 Support High Resolution Screens?

Mar 12, 2014

I have a laptop with a 3200 x 1800 screen and the toolbars and menus of Illustrator and Photoshop are nearly illegible due to their minuscule size. Indesign displays normally, as does Lightroom.

On the adobe forums, two entries - Adobe Community: Photoshop CC on a High DPI display on Windows 8.1 and Adobe Community: Photoshop CC / Windows 8.1 HiDPI / Retina scaling support - suggest this is due to Microsoft not supplying required APIs (whatever these are...).

3200 x 1800 is still new, but over four months have passed since the posts on the adobe forums and the problem endures. Surely a giant such as Microsoft should already have that loophole closed? It is quite astounding that such an issue should even exist in the first place.

UEFI / GPT Support On Installation Media (DVD) Windows 8.1

May 4, 2014

I am trying to make a DVD with UEFI/GPT support for Windows 8

I have an ISO from MSDN - Windows 8.1 Pro VL (x64) - DVD (Danish)
File Name:da_windows_8_1_pro_vl_x64_dvd_2971937.iso
[URL] .....

The SHA1 for the ISO matches the one on MSDN

SHA1: 3142B1DCBDFFC7E46ACE0E89BDB858D2C9B1F233

I used Hashtab v.5.1.23 to verify [URL] .....

If I burn the ISO and boot from the DVD created, it boot just fine in UEFI Bios.

But if I change the ei.cfg file to one of these:

(Blank) to have the choice to install Core or Pro

It will not boot in UEFI Bios, it work just fine in Legacy Bios. I can use the program Rufus [URL] .... to create a bootable USB drive, this works perfect. But I would really like to know how to make this work on a DVD. Or/and what I am missing.

This is the original ei.cfg file from the ISO.

Hardware Drivers :: Easycap Doesn't Support Windows 8?

Dec 3, 2012

I primarily use an Easycap to convert VHS tapes to digital video files, but unfortunately, I have my device plugged in, and tried installing a few drivers for it, but none of them worked. I've searched across the Internet for an EasyCap driver for Windows 8, but I couldn't even find one, and have come to the conclusion that Easycap doesn't support Windows 8 yet, unless there was something that I didn't know about.

Maintenance :: Windows 8.1 - Microsoft Restore Point In HP Support Assistant

May 13, 2014

I need some info re creating restore points. In the HP Support Assistant, under updates and tune-up-change tune-up tasks, should the "set restore point" be turned on to "yes" when a tune-up is scheduled? I understand that windows 8.1 automatically sets restore points, but I don't know how or when or where the restore point info is stored. Is the HP Support Assistant "set restore points" the actual method used by Microsoft or an additional option?

Setup Installation :: Can't Boot Into Windows 8.1 After Messing With Linux

Jan 5, 2014

I've been messing with lubuntu and backtrack and decided to install Backtrack5 on my laptop(Lenovo N586). I couldn't boot into windows 8.1 after installing Backtrack5 R3, but I had no problem booting into backtrack(I think I made a mistake of installing backtrack bootloader in the same place where Windows bootloader was...). I was able to boot into windows 8.1 after fixing the windows bootloader, but this time I couldn't boot into backtrack5. I wanted to start fresh and uninstalled Backtrack5 using boot-repair-disk. And ever since I uninstalled the backtrack5, I cannot boot into anything unless I use live linux usb. I've literally tried almost everything I could find in the past a couple of days on the internet including the forum. It says my hard drive is locked and I don't really have any available options that actually work(like refresh, start up repair, diagnostic, reinstall, nothing works). Windows 7 recovery CD didn't work saying I am using different version of OS, so I should use different recovery CD.

Setup Installation :: Linux Install Failed - Windows 8 Pro Not Booting

Feb 8, 2013

I have upgraded my windows 7 ultimate to windows 8 pro a month ago and activated accordingly.

3 Days ago I tried to install Linux OS on XP partition ( earlier I had a XP+ Windows 7 dual boot and I upgraded windows 7 to Windows 8 Pro).

Unfortunately installation of linux failed and Windows 8 Pro is not booting now

How can I restore/re install windows 8 pro??

I tried by inserting repair DVD , but getting message of " repair could not possible".

Actually windows 8 Pro partition is not formatted, only the partition of XP got formatted ( earlier I had a XP+ Windows 7 dual boot and I upgraded on windows 7) .

Right now PC showing some message regarding Intel/processor/..etc.. on a black screen.

Actually I am least bothered about my personal files.

My ultimate concern is regarding activation of windows 8 pro with same product key.

Is there could be any problem with activation of windows 8 PRO?? and what procedure I have to follow?

Setup Installation :: Custom Recover Windows 8.1 Without Affecting Linux?

Jul 18, 2014

I am clean installing Windows 8.1 and Ubuntu on a friends new laptop and although I have taken Clonezilla images of partitions on my personal laptop should I ever need them I was hoping there was something more user friendly I could install on my friend's laptop. Anarethos Recovery Toos with Media Creator seems to be what I am after but I am not sure if that will mess up the boot settings or even completely remove Linux.

Ideally I am looking for something that can be launched by holding a hotkey down at boot. When launched it will offer to restore the main Windows 8.1 system partition (GPT) with all drivers and programs installed exactly how it is when I hand it over, and if possible offer to restore the Ubuntu /home partion. The crux is that Windows can be restored without affecting Ubuntu.
