Operating systems perform basic tasks, such as recognizing input from the keyboard, sending output to the display screen, keeping track of files and directories on the disk, and controlling peripheral devices such as disk drives and printers. For large systems, the operating system makes sure that different programs and users running at the same time do not interfere with each other. The operating system is also responsible for security, ensuring that unauthorized users do not access the system. Operating systems provide a software platform on top of which other programs, called application programs, can run.

Dear expert,

I have taken over a server from someone who is no longer with the company.  The server is not yet in production and I an entrusted to get it up and running and into production.  In going through the motions and checking out various things to see where the server stands, I came across this ... whenever I click on something in IE, I get the message "Please click here if you are not redirected within a few seconds"?

The server is running Windows 2016 Essentials as the OS.  The IE version is 11.

I have researched this issue before sending in a question.  I have tried the following:

1. I have reset IE (restarted computer as instructed).
2. I have reset IE -and- clicked on delete personal settings (restarted computer as instructed).

So far nothing I do seems to work.

I was attempting to download Chrome when I this message came up.  Also, if you don't mind, in trying to download Chrome, a second issue occurs.  When I get to the download chrome website, I click on 'Download Chrome' and nothing happens.  I can scroll up and down the page, but when I click on the 'Download Chrome' link, nothing happens.  My guess is that these 2 issues are related somehow with IE's security settings.

Any assistance you can give on these 2 issues is appreciated.


Thanks,

I have a 2016 21.5" Apple iMAC with a Fusion Drive that came with OS Sierra installed as the default OS when I purchased it in December 2016. I upgraded to High Sierra and would like to go back to Sierra. I have completed a few "Clean Installs" and have a OS Sierra Thumb Drive however after going through the process for a Clean Installation, the Sierra Thumb drive is not recognised or visible and when I reinstall the OS it goes back to High Sierra again. I do have a time Machine Backup and this option does take me back to Sierra but I want to go back via Clean installation - not via backup.
I have also tried to do the downgrade on my 2016 MacBook Pro with a SSD Drive and this does not work either.

Hi,
I powered off guest OS (Windows 2008 R2) before acquiring snapshot.
After reboot, I installed some upgrades and all went ok.
Now I would like to remove snapshot.
Should I first power off again that VM, or can I proceed with VM running?
Thank you

I recently take my MacBook Pro to a local apple store to do a fresh clean installation. It only take about 10 minutes for the guy in the Genious bar to wipe off everything in the hard drive and have the newest OS copy installed to the hard drives.

Since our company just bought about 20 brand new, exactly same HP servers, and they all will be installed with the same version of CentOS. I am thinking if I can do the same way like what the guy in the apple store does to my laptop, isn't that be nice? it could save me a lot of time and effort.

It used to take me more than ONE hour to install the CentOS to a new server by DVD or USB. 20 servers would take quite a few days. If I can finish the installation of OS in 10 minutes or so for each server, I probably can finish the 20 servers in half day.

Is it possible to do so? I did google some tutorial online:

https://www.liberiangeek.net/2014/07/install-centos-7-via-netinstall/

https://www.howtoforge.com/how-to-do-a-centos-6.0-network-installation-over-http

however, I don't see that these procedure can be done in 10 minutes.

Anybody has the idea how the apple tech guy does? thanks.

The  hard disk on one of my laptops has failed (it is a Samsung NP355V5C), so I have purchased a replacement HDD. I have also managed to download a copy of the Samsung Recovery Solution, this contains all required drivers and a copy of the OS. However, I cannot find anywhere to download the Samsung Recovery Solution Admin Tool - apparently it can be taken from a running laptop, which is really great when the hard drive has gone down. Does anyone know of a place where I can download this? I have done my best searching the internet, but, cannot seem to find anywhere to download the files. Help with this is greatly appreciated.

Hello All

I am saying sorry in advance because I know less than zero about the capabilities of the Raspberry Pi, so if my question sounds stupid, take it from where it is coming from :D

Can a Pi run a pre-made GUI interface like windows or do I have to program my own?  If it can run a windows-looking OS can it connect to the internet? If the Pi loses power, when power returns can it be setup (like in windows there is an area for programs to begin at startup) so that the GUI comes back up and the internet automatically reconnects to a site?

Thanks!

Have an HP proliant server with 2 Hot swap mirrored drives split into two fixed partitions..one for OS and one for data. Running Windows Server 2008 Essentials. The OS partition is only 80gb and is overflowing with files i cannot relocate off the C drive.. (mostly in that WinSXS folder which i've been warned to stay away from).  So i need to expand that OS partition somehow or move it to a new drive with more space.. the question is.. whats the best way to do this, and what are the potential pitfalls of moving a server os partition around ???  The data drive has spare room but i dont know if i can adjust partition sizes between the two.. If so what software would i need for that ??

I have a user that needs to print to her local printer from a remote server.  When I setup her printer on the remote server it works fine until she has to log back into the server.  The printer TS port keeps changing.  Is there a way to stop this?  The remote server is a 2012 R2 Standard.  The user is logging in from a Win 7 Pro OS.

Thanks.

Hello everyone,
I have a user who originally reported an issue that his Excel Documents would not show up on the screen.  I found that the issue was because, he would have his surface tablet connected to External monitors and the surface tablet closed and  the Excel documents were showing up in the Surface tablet display.  I originally disconnected the display but then found that when he turned the other two monitors off, he would not have any display at all.  I worked around that by duplicating the displays.  He now has a display when the other two monitors are turned off, but then he has the same issue that he called in about and this is because Windows still sees the two monitors.  I wanted to actually disconnect the monitors but the user told me that he did not know how to do that and I don't know exactly how his monitors are connected, but I would think that turning them off would do the same thing.  I have been seeing this issue for quite sometime, where the OS still believes that there are still external monitors even though the computer has been disconnected  from them, for me it's no big deal, I just go into the display settings and disconnect the external display, however I don't want to tell a user that he has to do that every time.  I am wondering if anyone has a solution for that.  The user is running Windows 10 pro for the OS.

My OS is win 10 pro 64 bit and I have the Business Essentials account for Office 365 and I use Outlook, and i usually load the program from www.outlook.live.com/owa  as u see in the attached snap shot.  I am a bit confused as to what version of Outlook it is, and hope the Experts can point me in the right direction.  From the inbox I tried to right click to get the menu to export the email, but I could not find the selection.  This is what I want to do to export the email, but am I looking at the right program. thank u and regards.

Please provide me with the steps on how I can associate a fingerprint to logon with a Microsoft Hotmail or Outlook.com account.

Hi

I have a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B that a supplier gave me for a demo unit. It runs their OS for their demo software.

I want to try another application today using the Raspian OS. I have a 2nd new formatted SD Card.

Can I just swap the SD Cards in the Pi and install Raspian on the new card or could there be some files/configs from the original OS&app that are stored on some local storage (ie not purely on the SD Card)?

In other words, by swapping the new SD Card into the Pi and installing Raspbian on it, could I damage the original OS or is it 100% contained on the original SD Card? After this new test, I need to go back to the original OS (by inserting the original SD Card).

And yes, I know that Rapsberry Pi's are really cheap, but I can't get one until tomorrow and need to test something today.

ThanksQ!

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

What is the process to add the Wall Street Journal & Bloomberg apps or feeds to the Windows 10 Start menu ( the right portion of the start menu that has all of the other news feeds)?

If  a VMWare cluster is configured with Partially Automated DRS, I understand that vCenter will place VMs on specific hosts when a VM is powered on. But with Partially Automated DRS, will vCenter also make a placement decision when a VM remains powered on but the guest OS is restarted?  Thanks.

My client has an HP Proliant ML350G6 server. OS is on a pair of mirrored 145GB drives. Data is on a RAID 5 array of 1TB drives. The OS drives are getting really full after years of updates. These are 2.5" SAS drives. What would be the best way to get the OS on to larger drives short of a new server? Is it even possible? OS is Server 2008 R2.

Experts,

I found some other posts for other PE's but not one for a PERC700. We cleared the Foreign Config and now the replaced drive is in a ready state. This is for the small 2 drive bay for the OS.

If I select to make it a Global Hot Spare if gives me a Big warning message that the drive is not sized to be a Spare for all configs, to RAID 5 Config which has much larger drives. If a pull the trigger for the Hot spare, will it see that it can join the RAID1 and start the copy process? or not?  

Thanks

Today two users upgraded their Windows 10 Home computers to Windows 10 Professional computers by visiting the Microsoft Store.

They both used the exact same company credit card.

They have both told me that during this process that they weren't prompted to type in an email address.

What process do I need to follow so that I can obtain receipts for these two OS Windows 10 Home to Windows 10 Pro upgrades?

Is there a phone number or email address I can contact to get these receipts?

Hi everyone

The company I am working for installs its images/OS via a network in UEFI.

How does the computer know on which server the image is stored?
Does the computer send out special packages via TCP/IP to retrieve the location of the images?
What protocol does it use?

I would also be grateful for a link to a site which explains the procedure.

Thanks

Massimo
