  1. Using Reset PC to reinstall Windows


    Going forward I intend to use Reset PC. Ive used it before but its been a while. The tutorial on here shows that Reset PC now has a new cloud download option which wasn't available then. I always used to use Reset PC and it just did a local reinstall. I selected Remove Everything and it just clean installed Windows 10 from existing Windows files.
    What are the pro's and cons of using Reset PC with this new cloud download option?
    It seems to me that the cloud download option would take a lot longer (For example, In my case when Ive clean installed using the Media Creation Tool USB method, just the download itself takes 2 hrs and 30 mins because my internet is quite slow). Im thinking that a clean installation would still be the end result whether I was to use Reset PC with the local install method or the new cloud download option. Is my thinking correct?
    How exactly does Reset PC work nowadays using the local reinstall method? Lets say, for example, you originally clean installed Windows 10 using a USB flash drive with version 1709 and have added feature updates ever since when they became available right up to today's version 1909. Would a Reset PC performed today install version 1709 to begin with or do your existing Windows files get updated along with each subsequent feature update that gets installed while using your PC over time so version 1909 would get installed as this was the current working version running on the PC?

    How to factory reset Cisco 1700 Router

    Hopefully I can help you here....its a very common thing to happen.


    First, I take it you dont know the passwords for console access or telnet/ssh?

    I will assume that these devices belong to you.

    step 1. Plug a cisco console cable into a serial port on your pc
    step 2. Plug other end into Cisco console port
    step 3. Using hyperterm or putty or similar connect to the serial port
    step 4. boot router, and make sure you clearly can see the output (this confirms you have good serial comms)
    step 5. if this fails, adjust the comm port settings (9600, 8,1,n are the default)
    step 6. now you have to do the only hard part...send the break command:

    Break command list: Break Commands

    Go down the list and match your OS and SW and try the sequence suggested.

    If this fails several times do what I do: Install putty (free) and then to send a break so you can get into rommom just hit "ctrl-a b".
