    Partition Not Found

    I was just trying to install iATKOS [Mac OSX 10.5 for intel], and I think that ity involves unmounting the vista partition. When I start up, it says "HFS+ Partition error". When I boot into the Vista Repair Disk, it doesn't show any drives or partitions. How do I get my Vista partition back?

    If you could switch from Windows to Mac, would you?

    Probably not. Every OS has it's strengths and weaknesses. Windows has the most programs compatible with it, but it has the most viruses. Macs are very easy to use, but they're not good for anything beyond everyday tasks. Linux has a lot of power, but it's harder to use than the other OS's. Since...

    Internet Browser Poll

    I'd have to say that I like the Flock web browser. It's got a lot of freatures in it for people who use the net for social purposes. But, Firefox will always be #1 for me.

    Strange Startup Problems

    I have run into another problem. For some reason, my disc drive cannot read CD-R's anymore. It can read other disks fine, but not CD-R's. How do I fix this? My Drive is a Matshita DVD-RAM UJ-850S ATA.

    Vista and XP Dual-Boot

    No, you haven't, but I'm glad you did, because it reminded me to format the partition as NTFS. Thank you! :)

    In the spirit

    I know that they're Nero images, but I'm trying to burn games to discs, and from what I've heard, the specific version of nero that I need for burning this type of game is very old [version 5]. So, I'm trying to see if it will work in alcohol, since I payed for the full software, and I want to...

    Vista and XP Dual-Boot

    I'm going to triple-boot my laptop. It already has vista and ubuntu dual-booted, and I'm going to try and install XP. However, I'm a bit nervous about EasyBCD because of my previous incedents with it. So, I'm going to use a method I found on the net: I just wanted to know what the people here...

    That's great, because I have a question. How you you successfully burn .nrg images in Alcohol 120%? Everytime I try, I get an error message, the burning stops, and the disc is unusable again.
