Windows 10

Windows 10 is a personal computer operating system featuring the "universal application architecture" (UAP); apps can be designed to run across multiple devices with nearly identical code, including PCs, tablets, smartphones, embedded systems, Xbox One, Surface Hub and HoloLens. Windows 10 also includes a virtual desktop system, a window and desktop management feature called Task View, the Microsoft Edge web browser, support for fingerprint and face recognition login, voice-based search (Cortana), new security features for enterprise environments, and DirectX 12 and WDDM 2.0 to improve the operating system's graphics capabilities for games.

We have a Windows 10 laptop in which the display portion was destroyed.

I removed the hard drive and attached it to my computer.  The drive is GPT Protective Partition.

Can't "see" anything... no drive letter, etc.

Are we out of luck?

Have multiple identical Windows 10 desktops on a network sharing a single Internet connection through a single router running DHCP. All systems are functioning fine except for one which recently lost ability to browse the web. Target system reports having Internet access and does file sharing and printing over network just fine, both using a Wi-Fi and wired connection. Have tried browsing with IE, Chrome and Edge and all fail same way.

Have run network diagnostics, changed target system ip address, flushed and renewed dns, restarted several times with no change. Windows updates are current. Will run netsh winsock reset in about 18 hours when I'm in front of target system to do so.

Any ideas or suggestions of where else to look is appreciated.

How can I block a computer from accessing the internet completely. but leave open remote desktop connection so the user can only use the internet when remoted in the their work computer via remote desktop.
blocking IE will not be enough since the computer has other browsers.

Hi Experts,

i have tried looking on-line but have so far been un-successful. I need to get a guide which can be given to users to help them setup monitors. not with regards to the physical setup but more so the software side. I don't fancy writing the document myself as i would have to include all the following scenarios:


Scenario 1: you have 1 additional monitor that you would like to connect to the laptop to duplicate or extend the display.
Windows 7
Windows 10

Scenario 2: You have 2 additional monitors that you would like to connect to the laptop
Windows 7
Windows 10

Scenario 3: You have 3 additional monitors that you would like to connect to the laptop
Windows 7
Windows 10

is there any content online which would answer these questions in a generic way as i know that display settings can be a pain but the common issues here are users having issues getting the monitors the correct way round or resolution / size of icons are incorrect.

worst case scenario i will have to bring together several articles online with screen shots etc but was hoping there may already be a john and janets handbook as such on this.

thanks in advance,

Peggiergreg

I cannot locate the image I am using for the background and lock screen picture on my Windows 10 desktop.

I have looked in c:\windows\web\wallpaper,  c:\windows\web\screen, and in C: > Users > [Your User Name] > AppData > Local > Packages > Microsoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager_cw5n1h2txyewy > LocalState > Assets.

The photo was originally stored in a Windows pictures folder as a .jpg image and a copy in Windows Photo Gallery, but they are missing also.  I use the same picture for both background wallpaper and the lock screen.

The only place it appears is on my lock screen window.

Can anyone suggest where else I look for it?

Thank you.

for deployment of windows 10 through system center configuration manager, i read in some articles that MDK is integrated with SCCM

which i think is windows  ADK ? am i correct.

Does SCCM use USMT to do so which is part of MDK?

my question is:

A)if i want to deploy windows image or OS  i can directly do it from SCCM  distribution point or application  so  why use Microsoft deployment kit

B)and if i want to deploy the image to let us say 100 computers, how long it should take through SCCM

I am running into a very frustrating error when trying to deploy a Windows 10 pro x64 image from a WDS server to a Lenovo L560 laptop. I am getting the attached error (Really useful eh?)

I have tried quite a few things but have not had any luck. Things I have tried:
Re-capturing the Image
Using a different laptop
Getting the most up to date SCCM driver pack
When I remove the unattend xml file the error does not some up, it just wants me to install Windows by hand (Which defeats the purpose)

I booted to a usb and found this error log in F:\Windows\Panther\setuperr.log

Hi experts,

I would say my technical level as far as servers is about a 5 to 6 out of 10. The IT person setting up the server would be a 12. He makes sure I have good quality hardware and software, but he also doesn't always recommend the most expensive. For this reason, he has no issues using WSB, but I don't want something that bare bones, no matter how well it works. Plus, I am more willing to spend money. As a physician, I see myself working another seven years (which I know is bordering on too long for the server -- I guess I am misguided by the fact my Dell Edge 2900 lasted that long).

Just to give my setup, I am setting up a Dell T430 server with Windows Server Standard 2016 as the host, with two VM guests. One will run my SQL databases and the other will contains Essentials for Active Directory and will be the DC. I have only eight clients all Lenovos running Win 7 Pro. They are all identical. Modem is Arris by Spectrum with 70 down and 6 up. pfSense router (awesome, but I am glad he set it up) and a Cisco 26 port switch. I know this is more info than you need. My old server (Dell Edge 2900) will temporarily be the fax server, but it can be converted to something else -- maybe a replication machine? I can also get Azure for the cloud much cheaper than AWS.

So, now to my question. And, these are frustrating I know, because it is more about opinion. I generally end up splitting the points as there is no right or wrong answer. But, I am trying to decide among …

Hello.

I have a question about my Forest and Child domains infrastructure and the DNS configuration.
First, the infrastructure is a split DNS configuration.
Example : mydomain.com with an external DNS zone hosted by a third party provider and the internal DNS AD integrated.

Now I don't know if a conditional forwarder is needed for the child domain controllers to route the request internally for the parent domain and never by the external hosted dns zone.

Here's my detailed configuration :

Parent Domain Controller
Domain : mydomain.com
Forwarder : 8.8.8.8
DNS IPconfig : 127.0.0.1
Delegation existing in the DNS zone for the child domain ("child").

Child Domain Controller
Domain : child.mydomain.com
Forwarder : 8.8.8.8
DNS IPconfig : 127.0.0.1
No conditional forwarder to request the parent domain.

Note that the configuration works. If I create an host entry (A) in the external DNS with an IP defined at 20.20.20.20 and the same host entry in the parent domain with an IP value of 10.10.10.10, and nslookup from a client in the child domain will return the value 10.10.10.10.  If someone could explain me this and if I need a conditional forwarder.

Thanks.

OK, I totally get how the cores of a host computer must be "fully" licensed before you can spin up any VM's.  If you have Windows Server 2016 Standard and you have 2 procs of 8 cores each, you need one copy of 2016 Standard and you get two VM's.  If you have a computer with 2 procs and 10 cores each, you have to get a copy of 2016 Standard and enough core packs then you get your two VM's.  If you want two more VM's, you have to get a copy of 2016 Standard and core packs again.  

Sounds awesome.  

Now for my question:  How many virtual vCPUS's can I assign to my Windows Server 2016 Standard guests?

Every licensing scenario I see talks all day about licensing the host's cores.  But how many vCPU's can I assign to the guests when I open up the Hyper-V management tool settings for a VM and it shows that field where I can type in a number for processors?

I need to run an older software program (Timeslips 2010) on a new Windows 10 (creators) workstation.  I know that the software will run as I have some systems that were upgraded from Windows 7 to 10 that run the software just fine.  However, the Timeslips installer detects the newer OS and halts.  How can I install on this version of Windows?  I've tried running the setup.exe in compatibility mode but get the same error.  Any ideas?
