Can I create windows 7 system image without Recovery partition

Windows 10

Hello Folks, I have HP dv6 laptop which is running on Windows 7 64 bit. I need to create a system back up image of the OS. The issue is while creating system Image, windows picks up all the system drives by default (including HP recovery partition) which I wouldn't like to include. I cannot un-select the recovery partition to be excluded from the system image. Any ideas to achieve this without tinkering recovery partition? Thanks

Repeated update failure Aniversary 1607 Update: "We can't install some updates because other updates are in progress. Restarting your computer ..."

Windows 10

Any suggestions and help appreciated. Windows 10 is stuck in an frustrating loop on every restart of causing a delay as it attempts to update, then reverts the changes again. At least with Windows 7 updates could be run individually or not run at all and so there would not be this type of issue. The built in trouble shooter did not help. The standalone one is not much better Fix Windows Update errors> Windows Update Troubleshooter,> "latestwu.diagcab" When I run that as an Administrator it purports to find and fix errors. I will attach a screenshot of it. However if it does fix errors then when I restart the computer and again run that it should not be again finding the same errors. I of course tried running the update after the fix but get the same error again: "We can't install some updates because other updates are in progress. Restarting your computer may help, and we'll keep trying to update." Note this apparently included re downloading new update files. In case this has any bearing on the issue please note This is a multi boot setup with Linux on itThe original install was of Windows 7. This is a free upgrade to Windows 10, so I do not have install media. I will try running the update "Windows10Upgrade28084.exe" next see what that does. (Probably will break my bootloader though)

The latest windows 10 update (KB3213986, I believe) removed the minimize button in bottom-right of the taskbar for other monitors. Please add that back!

Windows 10

Example: I have 2 monitors: one 1920x1080 and the other is 1600x900. The first is my main one and has the minimize button in the taskbar at the bottom-right and my other one did, too, until windows update installed "Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3213986)". Now my secondary monitor (1600x900) does not have the minimize button on the bottom-right of the taskbar anymore - only the main monitor does. There's no option to put it back in the taskbar settings, also.

The problem seems to be caused by the following file: ntoskrnl.exe

Windows 10

I am using windows server 2012 for Testing of Hyper-V Education and I am having this problem from last few days. I have server Dell R710 and OS Server 2012. Systems seems to be restarting from last few days Automatically once a day. Crash file says below given details: ""A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. The problem seems to be caused by the following file: ntoskrnl.exe If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps: Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any Windows updates you might need. If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.

Win10 + HDMI Adapter - video speed too fast, sound high pitched

Windows 10

I updated to the latest version of Windows 10 the other day and since then am having troubles when connecting my Apple Macbook Air (running latest bootcamp with Win10 and osSierra) to my HDMI SmartTV. I was suspecting it to be a problem with the HDMI adapter, but it works just fine when connecting it while running MAC, hence am more guessing its a driver thingy but even after re-installing the latest audio drivers the problem persists. I tried the usual solutions such setting the HDMI TV as default output with levels at 100%, not mute and all effects turned off, but no success. Any ideas? Thanks

Network Card extremely slow to connect.

Windows 10

This up-to date, Intel network adaptor in Windows 7 and google chrome browser, passes every diagnosis and test for accuracy and speed. The Dell Pro-NA team states it exhibits no obvious problems. The problem is that it takes a minimum of 5 minutes to actually lock on to the modem/browser and start to operate normally. Tests with other similar computers show an almost immediate lock-on. The only clue is that the real-time protection function of "Windows Security Essentials" comes on and stays on "red" and a message is generated that "real time protection" is not working. After 5 minutes, it turns "green", works normally and shortly thereafter the adaptor signs on and everything is normal and running at a fast "300 Mbps" speed. It stays working normally until the computer is completely and normally shut down. I have no Microsoft account that I can access the sign-on procedure with, as the File where I keep all my passwords etc. has been corrupted. I have a tech appointment to get it fixed. Meanwhile the question is generic enough so that some kind soul could give me a suggestion or two if this problem has been seen before, and a direction to go about fixing it. The obvious things have been checked by Dell Pro-NA and others as I stated. it calls for an experienced and generous person to take a moment to assist a person who thought he was experienced, and has used MS since before WIN 5 and the first mouse to run DOS. Before that I wrote straight DOS on a WIN 286 and even suffered through the earlier days of green screens and "syntax error" notices. Self taught on "DOS for Dummies" Thanks in advance, Paul

Upgrade from Windows 7 and 8.1 Home Editions to Windows 10 Pro

Windows 10

Hello, we have several Notebooks with Windows 7, 8, 8.1 running on home editions. Now we'd like to join them to our Windows domain and have to change the Windows edition to Pro. Anytime Upgrade is no longer a option, so we need to buy Windows 10 Pro OEM. With Windows 10 Pro OEM: Is it possible to get a license key to convert Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 from Home to Pro? Is it possible to upgrade (keeping all data) from this old Windows versions to Windows 10 AND change the Editon? Best regards Thomas

Two Video Cards, One recognized in Windows 10?

Windows 10

Just wondering why Windows 10 Build 1607 Build 150007.1000 sees my Nvidia Gt 740 Sc video card but doesn't see the on board Intel video card? Not that it matters much but I have a Philips 29FLp TV for a monitor which allows me to have both cards attached to it on different HDMI inputs. Should there be a video issue in theory I can switch Video Cards take care of the issue and keep on computing! Win 10 not seeing the Intel card is a tad disturbing. Any thoughts on this matter would be greatly appreciated!
