  1. How To switch display modes ?

    With the new version of Macrium 7.2, I'm now able via M.R. rescue boot, access my NAS box where all of the Tablets MR images reside. However when booting from the rescue media, it goes straight to "Tablet Mode". Note that my tablet (ASUS Transformer) come with a detachable key board which you can run in "Desktop Mode" or use it as a tablet, by detaching the unit from the keyboard.

    Since I have to search for my NAS device and have to log in to it, I noticed that there is NO keyboard to enter the login info in "Tablet Mode". Trying to use it to navigate via "Desktop Mode" while the device is in "Tablet mode" is near impossible to position the cursor to the correct fields. I have done it, but its painful since the touchpad is 90 degrees off from where the cursor moves on the screen.

    So I'm looking for a possible solution. The rescue RE boot has a command window, but does anybody know of a command to change the devices "Mode" ?, or does anybody know how to build a new RE boot disk where it uses only "Desktop Mode" ? Or any othere kind of solution you can think of.

    Thanks for your help.
