  1. Disconnecting license from old system to run on new system


    Greetings,


    I have an older home-built system for which I had Windows 10 on it. I removed Windows 10 because I want to use this version for a brand new system I'm building. I didn't realize at the time I removed Windows from the old system that I needed to follow instructions to disconnect the license so that it will be free to use on my new system.


    So, without Windows installed on my old system, is there still a way to disconnect it from that system?


    Thanks.


    Keith

    :)

  2. System Image Problem


    Bill,

    Could you elaborate on the Nick's Data? I've already done a Sys Img to G: drive.
    What is a Belarc Advisor audit?


    Rebooting now to see if drives stay the same.

  3. Will this power supply run this system?

    I was temporarily running the system listed in my System Specs on a Rosewill 500W PSU from 6 years ago with just the 4-pin CPU power connector after my OCZ GameXStream 700W died (after only 3 years). It ran just fine. I disconnected my optical drive and temporarily set everything back to default clock/voltage settings just to make sure.

    System Image Problem


    [table][tr][td]Version[/td] [td]Date[/td] [/tr] [tr][td]5.05[/td] [td]8/03/2009[/td] [/tr] [tr][td]5.08[/td] [td]7/21/2009[/td] [/tr] [/table]
    Which one is newer?
    Only 5.05 was offered on HP for the machine I linked.
    The description danced around some of the anomalies we're seen with drives.

    Since only 5.05 was offered, I questioned 5.08
    Guess we know the answer now - 5.05 failed to flash.
    We could spend time trying to figure that out, but IMO it's better on the back burner for now

    I think the next step is to try the Macrium sleight of hand to get the System Image restored.
    I'd like to get the System Image up and running to do the follwoing

    • Copy Nick's data to a folder off of the restored System Image C: drive

    • run a Belarc Advisor audit to collect license keys for Nick's software

    • there might be other data collection that Nick can do in preparation for the final step

    The final step is a clean install, install up-to-date MS and 3rd party software, and restore the copied personal data.

    Nick was having difficulty locating the outlook files in the System Image - so getting it back running live is the best I can think of.

    Thoughts, suggestions, and objections are always welcome and considered
