Allwiew WI7 : very cheap, relatively well powered (quad core Atom processor). Windows 8.1 licence, Microsoft Office 365 licence for an year.
Biggest inconvenience? The screen’s native resolution is 1280×600 but Allview forced it to 1280×768 so it can be compatible with Windows 8 Apps.
Fortunately it can be forced back, straight from the interface. Steps to be taken:
Karyonix – diskmod.sys
Diskmod.sys was originally written to allow pagefile.sys to reside in a USB Hard Disk.However its other features include disguising UFDs as HDDs and HDDs as UFDs.
Update: For Windows 7 64 bit you need to enable TESTSIGNING before installing Diskmod.
Run command prompt as admin and execute this command
Bcdedit.exe -set TESTSIGNING ON
- Download and extract diskmod-0.0.2.2.zip
- Right Click on diskmod.inf – Install
- Run UFDasHDD.bat and replug your USB Flash Drive to make it appear as Fixed Disk
- Run UFDNormal.bat and replug your USB Flash Drive to make it appear normally as Removable Media
- Run USBHDDasUFD.bat and replug your USB Hard Disk to make it appear as Removable Media
- Run USBHDDnormal.bat and replug your USB Hard Disk to make it appear normally as Fixed Disk.
- USB Flash Drives can be disguised as USB HDDs
- USB HDDs can be disguised as USB Flash Drives.This feature was missing in cfadisk.sys and dummydisk.sys
- Easy to install.No Reboot required
- Very easy to switch between Removable and Fixed modes for both USB Flash Drives and USB HDDs.You just have to change a value in the registry and replug your USB Device
- All connected USB Devices are affected.Karyonix’s post at reboot.pro mentions that individual USB Devices can be targetted without affecting the other connected USB Devices.However I have not been able to get that setting working
The easiest way to install a newer kernel in Debian, is to install it from the backports. Backports are packages taken from the next Debian release (called “testing”), adjusted and recompiled for usage on the stable release.
In order to install a kernel from the backports, we need to add the backports-repository for our Debian version to the apt-sources and update the list of available packages:
sudo echo “deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ wheezy-backports main non-free contrib” >> /etc/apt/sources.list
sudo apt-get update
aptitude search linux-image -t wheezy-backports
sudo apt-get -t wheezy-backports upgrade
sudo apt-get -t wheezy-backports install linux-image-*****
