Windows 7 not booting?

Microsoft Windows 7

Windows 7 is the latest Microsoft’s operating system. It’s something made out of Windows XP and Windows Vista. I found it a stable system and the visual effects are pretty cool. Something I do not really appreciate is the User Account Control which pops up everytime you make a system related operation. I disabled the UAC at the first startup.

Windows 7 was released first to computer manufacturers and leaked on the internet. Today, a retail version is available to everyone.

There are a lot of articles on the internet written about the features of Windows 7, its advantages and disadvantages. Lots of webhsites provide information on how to download and/or activate Windows 7. I would strongly recommend you buy a genuine version of Microsoft […]

Windows 7 Installation Error – Solved

By |2009-09-29T23:18:38+01:00September 29th, 2009|Technology|

Trying to install Windows 7 Ultimate (build 7600), I got the “Windows could not prepare the computer to boot into the next phase of installation” error message. I tried the installation once again, but the error kept appearing.

The problem was that I had deleted my old Windows XP, and though I had no operating system on the PC. Fortunately I did burn a copy of ” The Ultimate Boot CD 4 Windows” and it saved me a lot of time throught the process.

After searching for the possible solutions, I came to the conclusion that this error did appear regularly on Vista but as the Windows 7 is quite new, there where no clear documentation on how to resolve this problem.

Possible solutions are:

Disk Errors:

Invite de commande – Windows XP

By |2009-09-24T12:38:03+01:00September 24th, 2009|Technology|

“Un interpréteur de commandes, parfois désigné par l’anglicisme shell, est un programme faisant partie des composants de base d’un système d’exploitation, le Command-line interface (CLI) (ou invite de commandes).

C’est le mode de contrôle fondamental d’un ordinateur. Ce dernier prend ses données d’entrées en ligne de commande, qui sont transmises à l’interpréteur en mode interactif.

Son rôle est de traiter les commandes tapées au clavier par l’utilisateur. Ces commandes, une fois interprétées, auront pour effet de réaliser telle ou telle tâche d’administration, ou bien de lancer l’exécution d’un logiciel.

L’invite elle-même consiste en quelques caractères, en début de ligne (généralement, le nom de compte de l’utilisateur, et/ou l’unité logique par défaut, et/ou le chemin par défaut, et/ou date, …), se terminant par un caractère bien connu (souvent « ] » ou « […]

Internet Explorer 8 (IE8)

Download Internet Explorer 8

Microsoft released Internet Explorer 8 Beta 1 recently.

Today, I installedit on my Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3, and now it’s been 3 hours I’m testing it.

So far, I’m not so happy with it. It’s a bit slower and does not look so different.

Page formattings are different on IE8, as the same websites on IE7 are better looking! Paraghraph indentation is messed up in IE8.

The new Yahoo! Mail interface does not recognize IE8, and if you try to get in anyway, you won’t be able to read your emails because you can’t access the “folders” as such object is not authorized!

So just download and install the Service Pack 3 of Windows XP on your system before anyone else!

If you’ve bought Windows Vista online and you received Windows Vista installation files throught Windows Market palce, you’d have some filess of “.wim” and “.exe” extension. Instead of paying extra expedition and delivery charges, you can create your own Windows Vista installation DVD, which would be a Bootable installation DVD as well!

Windows Vista

How to create a Bootable Windows Vista DVD :

  1. Put the 3 downloaded files in the same directory (install.wim, boot.wim and an application X13 – 49120.exe)

  3. Launch the application “X13 – 49120.exe“. The installation wizard will create a new folder called “Vista” next to itself […]
