    How to: Find the installation date of an operating system


    Sometimes I would need to find the date when the operating system was installed. Thou it’s difficult to have everything in shape with your inventory, if you have missed this part when an Operating System was installed, here’s a PowerShell solution to that.

    Open PowerShell as admin
    Type $osdate = get-wmiobject win32_operatingsystem
    Type $osdate.ConvertToDateTime($os.InstallDate) -f "MM/dd/yyyy"

    This will give you the date when the Operating System was installed

    On the other hand, if you wish to go through registry yourself, browse to the location below

    HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\InstallDate

    The result is in timestamp, so you need to convert it with this link.

    need list of usb bootable Operating Systems

    I am looking for a good list of operating systems you can run from a usb or dvd.

    If not a list, then folks can just post their top picks.

    I want these to run from the usb/dvd without installing on the system or getting in the way of the system that exists on the hard drive.

    Thanks in advance.
