Does anyone know where I could find a free linux VPS provider? I wan't a full image to myself. With Root access. I don't care f it's powerful or not. But I would like a little dev space to call my own. And even create other users so I can collaborate with a friend or 2 on mini dev projects.
@Bob No I just rebooting the system to start from DVD
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:
1. Insert your Windows installation disc and restart your computer.
2. Choose your language settings, and then click "Next."
3. Click "Repair your computer."
If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.

If you've got a mountable and bootable partition then i think throwing a windows install into a different DIR just to migrate stuff across is probably the best option... Well better, the best would be a fresh install on another drive, then have this one mounted and see whats recoverable
as a repair can't seem to fix the windows install i don't think theres much you can do - replacing BCD only fixes the mounting issues, not something damaged within the filesystem a sfc and repair install can't picking or fix?
Here's a real head scratcher...
A customer's laptop (Panasonic Toughbook) will log in and run perfectly fine while plugged in to AC power. Great. Now, if I unplug the laptop, then turn it on, it never gets past the Windows logon screen. If I plug it in, get past the Windows logon screen, then un...
@TomWijsman Not yet. I'm trying with the UBCD4Win first to see if it's going to do the same thing. I will check that next. May as well make it an answer for now, I just like shamelessly advertising my questions
@Luke, tried going into the "quick settings" app (or wahtever the equivalent is for Panasonic) and looking at network card options? I used to use a Dell Lappy that had some setting in the bloatware that let you disable the onboard LAN if AC power wasn't applied...
This is fairly easy to accomplish using IE's Accessibility options in Tools » Internet Options » General » Accessibility. If you follow the instructions to the letter, results look as blindingly amazing as this:

It’s been a few weeks now since Joel kicked off our “summer of love”. There’ve been some excellent discussions in the blog comments and on Meta, and we’ve tried to present some hard data on how objectively “nice” we are. But it’s high time to talk about what place “niceness” really has on Stack Exchange. And to do that, we need to start by talking about you:
You, sir, are a jackass.
And that’s ok.
Stack Overflow wasn’t created to be some utopian ideal of peace and love. When Jeff & Joel set out to create this system, they knew full well the sort of problems that face online commun …
@Mokubai Their practices are shady. For instance, lately, they snuck themselves into the Synergy installer. When I install Synergy, unless I click "custom installation" on a very non-logo'd page of the install wizard, and uncheck it all, it changes my homepage and search engine to an AVG-branded Google search, on all my installed browsers.
Stuff like that isn't uncommon with AVG. It annoys me to no end.
Unless you uninstall the toolbar, it will revert any changes you make to your homepages and search engines too. I don't even know of a legitimate reason to write a program to do that, unless you're a sysadmin at a highly regulated corporation...
I used to use ESET Smart Security, which is a great product, but it's also not free and acted a little odd with some software. However, it also is very lightweight and out of your way, and the way you buy licenses for it are as simple as can be.
From Wikipedia, this is actually kind of funny: On 30 September 2011, a faulty definition update caused Microsoft Security Essentials to incorrectly tag Google Chrome as malware. The issue was resolved within three hours.
@Luke Anything odd in Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Services? Wireless set to startup automagically, fast logon enabled etc? check what should be on at blackviper.com/service-configurations/…
@TomWijsman Well, a little more. I wasn't trying to be too descriptive. :P
That's basically what I was referring to. Of course you would have to figure out the names of tables and the like. So it's not a one-off thing.
@TomWijsman I was once helping a friend of mine code a custom CMS/forum website in PHP. There were two developers who contributed most of the code. The other one started the basic framework, but had to take off not long after he finished it, so I had to code up everything else based on it. I had to audit the code for security and everything, too.
Fun thing when you're teaching yourself PHP, SQL, and JS at the same time. But I think I did pretty well.
Except we had an established userbase and when the authentication code was created, passwords were only MD5 hashed, with no salt. I couldn't figure out a good way to fix that without disrupting the site in a major way...
I think that's just how the math goes... the output of the hashing algorithm is a subset of the potential inputs, so hashing over and over again decreases the size of the resulting set of hashes, meaning more chances to collide...
@TomWijsman Of course I am... <looks left then right>
@Mokubai Not a clue, but got a PHP error page

It could also be that your browser doesn't know how to respond to the MIME, in which case you could try appending view-source: or find some alternative way to open it such that it doesn't try to parse it but just shows you the text.
@unNaturhal FWIU, it does a backup with block-level access, so you'd need something that could read the blocks as well. It doesn't care about the file system itself, so it doesn't see folders or icons or files, it just sees raw data
