    Hi all.
    I came here in 2008 - unemployed and sorting out a new laptop for myself. I foolishly bought one with Vista (future proofing) and discovered none of my stuff would work with it. Teachers make loads of free software for each other but none of it worked on Vista - also big names like my Canon photo stuff. Anyway folks here helped me loads and I was able to partition my Acer, hide Vista away in a corner and install XP.
    I thought that one day I would make use of this easy BCD stuff and get the Vista working too. However, no need as no one seems to love Vista and the world has moved on to Windows 7.
    I'm still thankful for all the help I got here.

    My poor Acer is getting old and over heating so I've bought myself a new Toshiba with Windows 7 now. I'm back again looking for help to transfer my licence for Office 2007 to the new machine but no luck so far. Can you direct me to a suitable thread?

    1GB DDR2
    I just copied this off the front of my laptop - I have no idea what most of it means

    Hi flysalot,

    I thought I recognized your name and I asked myself "how do we have a new member with the same username introducing himself?"

    Anyway.... Transferring the Office 2007 license is easy - just install Office 2007 on your new machine, and go to the activation page. Call the hotline, explain that you have an old machine you'll no longer use Office on, give them your product key, and they'll activate it for you.

    Please continue this discussion in a new thread

    Welcome. One of my drives a while back on my old machine had the same problem. A firmware update from the maker's website fixed it. Of course I can't guarantee that.

    Hi there, everybody. My first time around, came here because in the last days I stumbled on this nice piece called EasyBCD.

    I was (and still am, will post later about it) trying to boot Ubuntu installed on a given partition. Right now, I've tried so much that I'm already messing directly with BCDEDIT, but still, the ease provided by EasyBCD is invaluable.

    I'm a brazilian 39 y.o. software engineer, just unemployed, and with some time to dedicate to my main hobby: taking care of my own old computer.

    C ya around, gentlemen!

    I'm glad you've found EasyBCD to be useful thus far, here's to hoping it takes you all the way

    Hello all, I know NeoSmart's website for several years now but never registered on the forums. I found it several years ago while searching for Neowin. The tools Neosmart give away for free like ToolTipFixer, EasyBCD, 64-bit TweakUI, iReboot are so great. I am still an XP fanboy and I *still* don't like Windows 7 (aka Vista R2) and Vista because of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...d_in_Windows_7 and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of..._Windows_Vista.

    I hope people around here won't be nasty to XP fanboys, like that other Neo- site.

    Hi, I'll be honest: I only registed on the forum to get some help so I can get my Vista BCD to work properly and on its own.
