Installing and uninstalling Windows Vista for dual-boot with Windows XP

0 Comments »

Windows operating system supports dual-booting a PC, where users can install multiple OSes and select which system to boot up to on machine startup. If you have installed Windows 7 or Windows Vista on top of current existing Windows Xp to make the PC a dual boot system, but now decided to ditch or dump the Windows 7 or Windows Vista partition to revert to the old good classic Windows XP follow the guide below to uninstall and remove Windows 7 or Windows Vista to leave only Windows XP without having to reinstall the OS, and without affecting saved files and data.

Important: Do not use this tutorial if your dualboot system is Windows 7 and Windows Vista.

  1. Boot up and log on to Windows XP desktop.
  2. Insert the Windows Vista or Windows 7 DVD installation disc into CD-ROM or DVD-ROM optical drive.

    Alternatively, mount the Windows 7 or Windows Vista DVD ISO image on any virtual drive.

  3. Run command Prompt, or click directly to Start menu -> Run command.
  4. In the command prompt or the Run text box, issue the following command and hit Enter:

    [DVD Drive Letter]:\boot\bootsect.exe /nt52 ALL /force

    For example,

    If the DVD drive path is D:, then enter the following:

    D:\boot\bootsect.exe /nt52 ALL /force

    The step will remove the boot menu to select operating system to start.

  5. Remove the DVD disc and restart the computer.
  6. The computer will boot up with Windows XP installation partition.
  7. Manually remove files and folders of Windows Vista or Windows 7, including Windows, Program Files and Users folder. If you’re installing to separate partition, just format the partition to clean it instantly (with FDisk, Disk Manager of Computer Management or third party partition management Software such as Partition Magic or EASEUS Partition Manager).
  8. On the root system folder of Windows XP, delete Boot.BAK and BootSect.BAK. The two files are remnant backup leftover files of previously installed Windows Vista or Windows 7 bootloader, but no longer useful for Windows XP only system.

Tip: NT52 is the MBR (Master Boot Record) used by Windows XP and Windows Server 2003, while Windows Vista uses NT6. So if you’re uninstall Windows 7 in Vista/7 dual boot system, change the NT52 in the command to NT60.

Fast Shortcut: It’s also possible to format the Windows Vista or Windows 7 partition straight away, and then start the computer with Windows XP Setup CD to repair the system partition, or run the “bootsect /nt52 c:” command above from the \boot\ folder of leftover OS immediately to repair the boot partition.

Tip: When startup repair the boot record after removing an installed operating system from dual-boot or multi-boot system, always use the highest version of Windows installation DVD/CD to perform the repair. For example, in a tri-boot PC with Windows XP, Vista and 7, after uninstalling Windows 7, use Windows Vista to repair the system. If the PC is restored and reverted back to Windows XP, then use the Windows XP setup CD

To help with these situations, Google went a step ahead by adding the ability to recover your password via text message.

Isro launches desi version of Google Earth

0 Comments »
India has come up with an alternative to Google Earth with its own satellite mapping geoportal- www.bhuvan.nrsc.gov.in - which is more precise and has the benefit of better updates.

Bhuvan, meaning earth, is the addition to the numerous scientific innovations by SAC and is a satellite mapping tool, just like Google Earth or Wikimapia, but allows you to zoom far closer than the aerial view from a chopper. If Google Earth shows details upto 200 metres distance and Wikimapia upto 50 metres, Bhuvan will show images upto 10 metres, which means you can easily see details upto a three floor high building and also add information.

The portal which would use images taken by ISRO’s series of remote sensing satellites (IRS), including Cartosat-1 and Cartosat-2, would serve the user with images having resolution up to 10 m. The portal, Bhuvan (meaning `the earth’ in Sanskrit) will provide multi-layered images and the images would be updated every year unlike Google Earth which is updated only in four years.

Union Minister of State for Science and Technology and Earth Sciences Prithviraj Chavan launched the beta version of the geoportal here on Wednesday at the one-day workshop of the Astronautical Society of India.While Google Earth shares only single layer information, its Indian counterpart would share multi-layer information using the images exclusively from indigenous satellites. The images would be visible to the user both in two and three dimensions using the navigation tools provided.

An additional feature provided by Bhuvan would be allowing the user to scroll through the newspapers of selective cities across the country. As much as 16 cities across the country are available in the portal to share their news. The user can zoom on to the city of their choice to go through the local news.

The portal takes special care of urban and rural development with readily making available the details of wastelands and ground water potentials of specific locations. Details regarding soil texture, which varies with topography, also add up to the features of the new portal. Several local problems like floods, famines, infrastructure development, education and administration would be addressed in a better way through this new mapping system.

There would be enough options available for viewing filtered information with the general inputs being incorporated in the portal using the details provided by the local communities regarding a particular area. The premier space agency envisages the expansion of the portal in the future with more features planned to be added to Bhuvan in the future to make it more useful and people friendly.

The website can be accessed on http://www.bhuvan.nrsc.gov.in.

Microsoft Owns office.com

0 Comments »

Computerworld - Microsoft has acquired the office.com domain from a Brussels-based company, according to searches of Internet registration records.

The domain, which was previously registered to the ContactOffice Group, a company that hosts an online productivity and collaboration suite, was transferred to Microsoft's control on Tuesday, searches of WHOIS revealed.

Office.com currently presents a message from ContactOffice telling its users of a domain change to office.contactoffice.com, a secondary address that the European firm has had in its possession since 1999.

"As of Friday, July 31, 2009, Office.com will no longer be available," said Tom Graham, a ContactOffice employee, in the message still live on the site. Also, if you use POP or IMAP with Office.com you will need to change your settings to pop.contactoffice.net and imap.contactoffice.net respectively," Graham added.

ContactOffice did not respond to e-mails asking it to confirm the sale of the site; Microsoft was not available for comment early Thursday.

Long Zheng, who first reported on the domain name change on his Windows blog I Started Something, speculated that Microsoft will use the new domain for the upcoming online versions of its popular Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote applications.

Microsoft touted Office Web last month, promising that consumers would be able to access the scaled-down applications for free. Workers at companies with Software Assurance plans in place will also be able to use Office Web free of charge.

A public beta round for Office Web is slated for later this year; the final version is to launch simultaneously with Office 2010, which is scheduled to ship sometime in the first half of 2010.
