Software is any set of instructions that directs a computer to perform specific tasks or operations. Computer software consists of programs, libraries and related non-executable data (such as documentation). Computer software is non-tangible, contrasted with computer hardware, which is the physical component of computers. Software written in a machine language is known as "machine code". However, in practice, software is usually written in high-level programming languages than machine language. High-level languages are translated into machine language using a compiler or interpreter or a combination of the two.

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.

Using SARDU on Windows 7
The viewer will learn how to successfully create a multiboot device using the SARDU utility on Windows 7.

1. Start the SARDU utility

2. Change the image directory to wherever you store your ISOs, this will prevent you from having 2 copies of an ISO with differing names

3. You can download many of the ISOs simply by clicking on the name, this will put it as an entry in the downloader queue

4. Some of the ISOs, such as the windows installers, will need licenses, if you wish to include them

5. Some of the links are no longer free, but free versions are mostly still available

6. Once you have selected all the items you wish to include, you can either create an ISO, or a bootable USB

7. Note that if you find you do not have enough space on your destination device, the largest files are the Windows installer ISOs

8. You will only need to interact with the software at the beginning of the creation process. SARDU will ask if you want to update the Windows Defender Offline images (32 and 64 bit) if they have been selected. I see no reason not to update them.

9. Successfully completed items are denoted in green, items not selected in Grey and the whitish items have not yet been parsed by the program

10. Here is an example of a boot ISO I created

Glad I could be of some help.  It sounds like you are a SARDU power user already.  I have been unable to discover how to add extra tabs into the SARDU GUI.  I believe it is a software limitation, but am not sure.  I have been trying to add an installs tab, I would even be willing to put it in place of the Linux, or Windows tabs (I use both, but if I could figure this out I would try to move the necessary items to other tabs).  If you figure any of that out, I would appreciate it if you could either post back here or message me.

Thank you very much, and i'm glad you enjoyed the video. I have only thought about listing on Youtube, but never thought about a DVD book! Although I am a terrible writer, I could maybe make a DVD, who knows!

Hi, thanks for the response. I have some ideas for you. Mainly because I am a frustrated user of Photoshop. I don't use it enough to become proficient, but often enough that I NEED to learn more. Your method of teaching is great. I got the point the first time I watched it. What I Am good at is being able to know when an instructor is not giving enough information, or too much. You did just perfect. I'd be happy to act as your proofreader helper for free. It would be worth it just to learn more. Think about it. Many have made TONS of $$$$ writing similar types of tutorials on other subjects.
