  • 1. Virtual Server 2005 SP1?
    I saw mention that Virtual Server 2005 will run on X64 W2k3 via SP1. Where can I get Virtual Server 2005 w/SP1? The evaluation download seems to be pre-sp1 and refuses to install on X64 windows.
  • 2. External USB HDD - hot plug problems - does not automount, unmount
    Howdy, Running x64 1433 and having a consistent problem with xp mounting volumes and displaying them in 'my computer' window. I'm not sure if its the PC hardware i'm running x64 on or x64. How would i discern? Although the same PC, when i boot xp pro 32bit, same ntfs volume external usb 2.0 hdd hot plugs (mount, unmount) fine. Tried other usb drives i have, same situation. Sometimes if i'm lucky, they will automount. but never have i seen them unmount by themselves in x64. I know its not the drives, as I have many of these external usb 2.0 drives and they all hot plug fine on other xp pro, home, and such machines. My sequence on the x64 is as follows: - system up and running, need access to files on the external drive, connected in the rear via usb 2.0 port & cable, - turn power switch ON rear of drive, go to my computer, nothing appears, - right click my computer, manage, disk management, sure enough drive has red icon, 'disk 2 dynamic offline' - right click and choose 'reactivate disk', sometimes, also have to 'rescan,' 'refresh' under 'action' menu. - if drive does not appear, then i have to reboot with drive on. - if i decide to unplug usb cable from rear of PC, or turn power switch OFF on drive while booted, drive icon will still remain in 'my computer', does not unmount like normal win xp 32bit. Thanks.
  • 3. Will this work?
    Once my WXP64 cd comes (Technology Exchange), can I install it on my new Hard Drive - D:. Once installed I can copy items I need from C: (Email, Favorites, Photos, etc). Once that is done then just delete the WINNT directory in C: (D: = 2 160GB Hard Drive Raid)(C: = 40GB HD) Thanks
  • 4. Setup cannot copy the file: kernel32.dll
    Hi everyone! I'm installing my XP 64 downloaded from MSDN subscription website with valid product key. After formatting the HD, in the "file copying" process, I get the following error message: "Setup cannot copy the file: kernel32.dll". Retrying is no good. I also tried with another image I had (not legal, but worth a try!) and it keeps saying the same thing. What can I do before starting all over again???? Thanks.

Anybody know what all this means for Windows XP Pro x64 users?

It's 'Professional' - I can't imagine it makes any difference, 64bit or not.
And I think it is a good thing too. May earn them a Vista sale to me, after
all. (When DX10 is released!)

The announcement affects the consumer edition users.  The business editions, 
like XP Pro x64, aren't affected.

I don't see what the question is? This is strictly about XP Home and XP MCE. 
And it just brings them in line with what XP Pro already had. And XP 
Professional x64 Edition _is_ XP Pro.

This is for extended support, so I don't see what's this fuss is all about. 
After 2009, it would be crazy for the owner of an XP home machine to pay big 
fees for getting support for what would then be a very old machine instead 
of buying something new.

I hadn't seen the earlier announcement about XP Pro. So my question 
(admittedly not clearly stated) was whether XP Professional x64 got the 
extended support as well. I realize it's branded XP, but as people here 
know, x64 is really NOT XP. It has a different service pack schedule etc 
etc.

XP Pro and XP Pro x64 always have had 10 years support.  That's why this 
announcement doesn't affect them.

There was no announcement concerning XP Pro earlier.  There has been no 
change in support for the business editions.

Ah.... I see now.  I'd misread the opening paragraph:
"Microsoft on Wednesday extended support for its Windows XP Home and Windows 
XP Media Center operating systems through 2014 to match policies already in 
place for the business-oriented Windows XP Professional. "

I thought they were saying there'd been some previous announcement regarding 
Professional.

As Gilda Radner's SNL character would've said:  "Never mind."

1.Still looking to email announcements to "Announcements" page...

This is a repost.  It's impossible someone hasn't addressed this with a
plugin, webpart, or 3rd party tool yet.

Has anyone already made a webpart that can post announcements to the
site when they are emailed to the WSS service account?  We send out
"system notifications" and "status updates" already to people' email
accounts and pagers.  It would be great if we could add the WSS site
announcement section as some sort of recipient...
