I wanted to remove the hidden recovery parition on my Asus Zenbook UX31A, which is 20GB in size, and I need that space, because the laptop just has a 128GB SSD, and I am permanently on space limit of about 1-2GB and Windows isn't working anymore properly.
when I open the Windows 8 recovery tool, the option for copying the recovery partition is greyed out. I googled for this, and I just could find informations about, that this can happen, but not why, and how to solve it.
So I got a new laptop and I cannot figure out how to boot from a USB stick that has a Live Image of Linux Mint. Except with my new ASUS, Windows boots so fast that there is never a kernel boot up screen which allows me to hit F12 or anything.
All I need to do is boot from the USB and everything should work, however everywhere I look said I can boot from another device using the Windows 8 Advanced Start up option by holding Shift and restarting the computer. This brings me to the Advance Start-up, but after looking through all the options I could not find a way to boot form my USB.
I recently tried to install Ubuntu 12.10, and lost access to Windows 7 and 8.1, after a LOT of looking for bootable disks and stuff, I did fix it.
After recovering the operating systems (I had to delete Ubuntu partitions and then fix the Windows 7 bootloader, because there was 6 primary partitions), the Windows 8.1 partition says its 10.0GB and empty, but when I double click on it, you can see the files inside.
This is bad, because when I try to boot in Windows 8, it gets to the login screen after a long boot time, then it just shows the time, battery, and internet status, and the rest is a blue screen, implying its broken. I found out this is because some OS files are missing, which might be related to the above paragraph. I have lots of paid software in Windows 8, and it was LOTS of downloading, so I dont want to wipe the drive, or have to touch the data, only be able to boot into Windows 8 again.
When I open in a partition viewer, it shows the 70GB partition as it should, and also
I want to install a multi-boot W 8 / android and I've already boot on "android-x 86-4.2-20121225" (without install) with my W 700 but the wi-fi is not recognized. how to find a version of android who recognized the wi-fi card of W 700?

I just purchased a brand new laptop (Lenovo s400) with Windows 8 (which was promptly updated to 8.1) and since I don't like having OS and personal files on the same disk, I used Partition Master for creating a new Partition to keep my files.
After PM rebooted the system, Windows doesn't boot and shows an error coded 0xc0000225. Lenovo adds a button to access System Recovery, but again I get the same error. As far as I can remember, I've never seen a recovery partition and no disks were included (Should've created a recovery USB drive as soon as I took it out of the box).
I would like to emphasize that this hard drive wasn't formatted, just re sized.
I have Windows 8.1 PC, then i installed EaseUS Partition Master 9.3 (All Editions), So i am having seperate ISO of WinPE, so i like to know "How to install WinPE on PC" because i want to Create EASEUS 3.9.0 Bootable CD.
I am having all the files like this below.
1)--EASEUS Partition Master 3.9.0 2)--WinPE ISO image ( in this iso there is no SETUP file is there, so how i should install this WinPE) If i install WinPE then i am able to create EASEUS Bootable CD.
i just bought my asus vivobook s400ca-dh51t 14 inch touch ultrabook and after a month of using the multi gesture suddenly it stopped working, i checked the mouse setting but i cannot find the device setting for the touch pad..
I have an Epson BX635FWD printer that has and does work perfectly with Windows XP. I have recently purchased a Lenovo B540 with Windows 8 and it loaded the print drivers immediately. I thought how easy it was but have since found that it will not print a multi page document in full, but will suddenly stop halfway through a page. I made do by printing a couple of pages at a time, but then tried to print a 10 x 15 cm photo and it would only print 1/3 before stopping and spitting the paper out. The number of pages it prints correctly before giving an error message and ejecting the paper is inconsistent.
I have reloaded driver 1.32 (for Windows 8) from the Epson site twice and I have also gone back to the disc supplied with the printer and reloaded the driver from there.
I actually have 2 problems. One with the Windows tiles, and the other one with Explorer/Libraries.
- First of all, I start with the small problem. I booted my PC today, and to my surprise, my Windows tiles were gone. Only the Store, Onedrive, Explorer and the Desktop are there. The rest? Gone. Very weird, never had this before.
So that is question 1: How to restore the Windows tiles. It's weird they disappeared, I did nothing with the configuration or something else.
- Second, and this is the main thing.
I have a serious issue with the Explorer/Libraries. My PC has 3 HDD's and 1 SSD. The SSD is, obviously, the Windows drive. Nothing special. The other 3 are for mass storage.
Stock, Windows sets all on the C drive. Like user stuff, install paths, you know. Also the libraries, like Pictures, Videos, Documents and Music. This is the part where it goes wrong.
I don't wanna have all my Music, Pics and the rest on my C drive. Only my Windows installation... So, I put my libraries into the D drive. I made a My documents folder on the empty D drive, and changed the direction path of the libraries on the left to the new My documents map. This goes good, except for the Music map.
The Music map thinks he is Desktop. I've tried to tell him, he's not, but the folder isn't listening. Without jokes, this is a really weird thing.
I tried to re position, but the Desktop and Music folder are thinking they are each other. I don't know how to solve this. The other folders do work, no problem with those. Except for these two.
Bad thing is also, I thought, if I delete the map, and create a new one, maybe that'll work. Not. Instead, Windows decided to delete both maps, Desktop and Music, so now, my icons, and music is gone. It's really weird, as I said, it's happening only with these maps.
Any solution or trick for this? Maybe,I could try and get the whole 'Users' map, from the C drive to D, so it makes one whole?
I'm working on a multi-cam shooting setup. I have 12 Nikon D5000 targeting one object at different angles. I want all cameras to be triggered at the exact same time. So I have installed Vello Freewave Remote Shutter receivers on every camera and I trigger the shutter with one transmitter. They do all trigger, but sometimes, they are not all triggering at the same time. So 1 try out of 5, one or two cameras have slight shutter time difference with the other cameras. Is the radio frequency to blame? I cannot change it with the transmitter model I have. Would other setups work better?
I have a Toshiba laptop with windows 8 pre-installed in it. I would like to take a system image including OS, drivers and software. After that need to install windows 7 keeping windows 8 as it is. In case of failure, this image can be restored right?
If I want to remove windows 7 only how will I do it to keep windows 8 only.
I've got an older SSD 120 GB. I was wondering if by partitioning it I could create a BOOTABLE Windows install disk. I've no problem with USB STICKS but using a bootable reserve SSD would be great IMO as I could then also have all my various other programs on it like Ms OFFICE and PHOTOSHOP so re-installing Windows together with the applications should be a breeze.
Perhaps the Bootable USB STICK procedure could be used as on boot the computer thinks it's a Disk anyway ( says USB 2.0 LEXAR HDD) for the USB STICK.
Note I'm not talking here about RUNNING Windows from an external HDD -- that can be done easily enough with Windows Enterprise (Windows to GO) but simply creating a Windows install media that will boot off an external SSD (NOT a USB STICK). I have the ISO's.
i have a Macally aluminium computer keyboard connected to my Pc. running Windows 8.1 64bit. In control panel, i have my keyboard setup as being US Internatonal (which my keyboard is). Language is setup as Dutch.
Now, whenever i start my PC, they keyboard is always set to Dutch, not US international. But then my keyboard doesn't work ok, it must be on US International. i constantly have to set the keyboard setting back to US International in the taskbar.
My computer is a Lenovo Y500 with windows 8. A few weeks ago I heard a friend of mine was having BSOD problems and that his computer stopped booting completely.
I brought my computer over and had a nice time, we were attempting to fix his computer by switching the hard drive out and changing his computer form windows 8 to windows 7. A USB device was used for that step. The USB device was not fully working so it was tested on the BSOD computer AND my fully working computer. His computer was fixed shortly after and began running again.
I took my computer back home and immediately noticed a slow down so I reformatted my computer.....it still seemed really choppy and laggy and froze alot. A day later I begin to get blue screens out the A$$ and eventually it comes to a Automatic repair loop. I had to order a recovery disk because my one key recovery no longer worked. I Ordered the recovery disk and bam my computer seemed to be working again after a long recovery process.
Foolishly I took my computer back to the place it seemed to work fine. Upon coming home again. I begin to notice problems and bam my computer tells me that It is in danger back up files or you may possibly lose them.
Another friend buys a new computer and he takes it to the BSOD house. Guess what he got? The BSOD he was using the flash drive used to add windows 7 to a friends computer to add windows 7 to his new laptop when it happened 6 times in a row. He recovered his computer and it seems to be working fine for now.
However my computer isn't; even after recovering it. While yes, it is moving fast and working great. The computer STILL gives me the warning that i must back up my files and what not. I also tried the CHKDSK in command prompt and it froze on 27% so I stopped it. I checked the D: and C: drives from my computer and going to properties but it said there are no problems.
The program that DOES let me know the problem still persists is the constant reminder telling me that their is a problem with the Device. Also my Intel rapid story device places an exclamation point on the HDD and says that one or more events, and data may be at risk. I do not know what to do...I feel that it is either a virus from the flash drive or possibly a Hardware problem caused by a surge in his house, but if that was true 2 of my other friends laptops would be fried as well.
It seems that this slowly happens over time each time I recover my HDD. The blue screens barely come. Its when I notice Games, and programs malfunction that the blue screen begins to show again.
I have a new instance of Windows 8.1 on a surface pro 3 and I can't get the folder icons of my OneDrive folder and and of the folders in it to change and stay changed.
First, I changed the special folders (documents, pictures, music, etc.) to point to my OneDrive folders (why it doesn't do this automatically is beyond me). TO do this, I opened up the special user folder (the one with the little dude in the icon in the navigation pane in Explorer). But, they all still have plain old vanilla folders. So, off to change the icons.
Second, I navigated to my OneDrive folder (still in its default location) right clicked, went to the customization tab, hit "Change Icon...", navigated to "C:WindowsSystem32imageres.dll" and selected the icons that I wanted. I did this for every special folder. Easy, right?
Not so much. If I then navigate directly to the OneDrive folder, everything looks all good; icons are intact. But, if I navigate to the special user folder (the one with the little dude) the icons are not there. Through some combination of closing down folders, restarting explorer, or even a system restart, the icons will show up. Throuh some combination of the same, the icons will quickly revert back to plain old vanilla.
Now, I tried to just reset defaults on the new targets of the special folders (In the OneDrive) That doesn't seem to work for all of them, and it's not permanent for any of them.
I want to back up Windows 8 but in neither book do they say that you can use a USB stick or CDs only an external hard drive or a network. I've got an external hard drive that backs up my desktop (XP) can I use this as well for Windows 8 or should I just get another external hard drive solely for Windows 8 or can I use the USB Stick 32gb that I already have?
It works fine in Win 7, but when I switched to Win 8 Release Preview bad things began to happen. First, it obviously didn't work. Then, all of the USB ports were disabled, even though they claimed they were operational. The only fix was a "Refresh" to get them back. Netzero will not except to say that Win 8 is not on the recommended software requirements.
