PROBLEM IN DOWNGRADE FROM WINDOWS 10 TO WINDOWS 8/8.1

Windows 10

Hi. I'm having a problem to downgrade windows 10 to windows 8. Basically my laptop is using windows 8 before upgrade to window 10. I don't know when and how the windows.old file was removed. And now I am having a problem to downgrade the windows without windows.old folder. What is the solution that I can do? I'm crying right now T.T p/s : My laptop was slow down since upgrading to windows 10.

Black screen after reset

Windows 10

So this whole issue started about a week ago when I had two power outages in a row in my neighborhood within a day of each other. Computer and monitor both are surge protected so I figured they were fine. Downloaded the newest AMDdriver through the amd gaming evolved all, then it restarted out of nowhere and kept doing it over and over, eventually it came up with the recovery screen saying windows ran into a problem. Tried the full reset on it which did nothing, then it began the "windows could not install correctly loop". Tried the registry edit fix, and that seemed to work until I get partway through the personalization settings and the screen just goes straight black. No response, no nothing. Been like this for a week. Patience running low... send help please

Windows10 mobile and Cortana

Windows 10

Doubtless the TV adverts for Cortana deliberately make using it look a lot simpler than in real life, but ... As a hands free app it appears to have no functionality. To access it I have to press a button on the side of my phone to reach the splash screen. Then I have to swipe that away to see the Windows desktop. Now I tap the Cortana button to wake it up and I'm STILL NOT THERE! Until I tap the microphone button it isn't listening. By that time I could be half a mile off road and bent round a tree. So far I've found out how to voice dial a number (as if I didn't know already), but there are no obvious ways into the voice recognition files to program each phone number in my address book with a unique word. Windows: 1 step forward, 2 steps back.

I dont have DMP file after enabling system to reserve this file

Windows 10

Hello, I have Windows 7 and enabled to keep DMP file when BSOD happens: ======================== Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter. (In win 8 you can use the windows key "win" + "s") Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings button. Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked. Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the drop down box (the 256kb varies). If you are on win 10 use "automatic memory dmp" Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%Minidump. OK your way out. Reboot if changes have been made. ======================== But each time BSOD happens, there is no any file or info in Minidump folder (I know its a hidden files which I should unhide it). Any solution?

MDT Deployment using PXE Boot

Windows 10

Hello all, I am currently trying to set up a windows server 2012 r2 with MDT 2013 update 2 and ADK on it. My boss has given me the task to get this up and running before the spring semester starts in January because he wants to stop using Semantic Ghost. I have no idea what I am doing wrong or if I have missed a step. I have no one helping me work on this project and my boss knows nothing about the MDT system. Now with all that in mind here is my problem: I have the server 2012 r2 set up on VMware vSphere and the MDT 2013 update 2 and ADK are on this virtual machine and all ready to go. I am needing to push a Windows 10 Pro image with multiple programs (Tableau 9.2, Python, Visual Studios, etc.) out to 40 desktop machines. I know how to create the image and get all of that stuff working, but when I go to push the image to a machine in the lab using PXE Boot nothing happens. PXE Boot comes back with "No filename found" or something like that. We have a server rack in our lab and the old ghost server is off and has been off for a while now. I have made sure that the virtual machine and the desktop machines are on the same subnet. I am able to ping the virtual machine from the desktops, but I can only ping the desktops from the virtual machine if the firewall is down on the desktops. The DHCP is not set up on the virtual machine server because it is set up on our server rack. I need help figuring out how to deploy the image from the virtual machine to the desktops using the PXE Boot.

Thunderbolt 2 bootcamp windows 10

Windows 10

Hello. I've been trying to solve this problem for over a year, checking the internet every so often to see if there is a solution. But nothing as yet, so I'm reaching out to see if anyone can help. I've got a MacBook pro retina display. intel pro 1500 iris graphics card. I'm running bootcamp windows 10. its got two thunderbolt ports and I'm trying to connect to an I-mac to make use of the massive screen. I think the iMac is mid 2014. But its not happening at all. I've read everything there is to read on the net on this subject and have tried everything I can. The thunderbolt connection works perfectly on the osx side and I know its not hot pluggable. This doesn't make a difference anyway. I've updated all the drivers for everything, I've reinstalled boot camp. I've even put windows on the iMac, nothing. Also, I've had it hooked up via the HDMI port to a monitor and that works fine. The iMac has exactly the same problem coming the other way to the MacBook. I have limited knowledge of computers but the thunderbolt doesn't seem to be recognized by the device manager. its like they don't exist. hopefully someone has an idea. thanks for reading.

App Can’t be Opened Using the Built-in Administrator Account with ADK

Windows 10

We do software performance testing with Microsoft ADK (specifically Windows Assessment Services) .... When you run an Assessment on a client from the ADK server, it requires that UAC be turned off in order for the assessment to run on Windows RS1 or higher (TH2 does not require this) ... but when you do that on a Windows 10 RS1 or Higher client, You cannot do App Performance testing as the Apps cannot start and give you the "Can’t be Opened Using the Built-in Administrator Account" error. I have tried the standard solutions to fix this but all of them require UAC to be turned on, which then stops the Assessments from running.... SO I have a dilema, How am I able to Run Apps like Edge, the MS Store, Grove, ect ... with UAC Turned off ... these are perfomance testing machines, not in production, and we are not concerned about security... we just want to be able to do App Performance testing with the Windows Assessment Services (ADK) Server. We are using the standard localadmin account that is built into ADK by default but again we cannot get around having to have UAC turned off in order for the assessments to run properly .... and then the Apps don't run. There has got to be a fix for this as I cannot understand why ADK would even exist if you cannot run App Assessments on RS1 or higher.... Anyone have any ideas? Thank you!

Wifi disconnect

Windows 10

Ok, so I have had my laptop for a couple of years connect to my wifi with no issues. I may not use it every day, but it's worked just fine. One day I turned it on to no connection. It works fine if I plug in, but cannot connect via wifi. My phone connects just fine by wifi, but I cannot for the life of me figure out what's wrong. Any suggestions?

windows password

Windows 10

hello, I have a the question about my surface pro 4. I have a Microsoft account and I'm trying to log into my account. I am able to log into it, but after it goes through, it is asking for my current windows password and I have tried so many passwords I thought I had for my Microsoft, and it even says "if you do not have a windows account click next" which I have and it doesn't do anything. It just waits for me to enter in a password. I don't know how to reset or access the windows account, I thought It was linked to my Microsoft account but now I'm just confused and frustrated because I can't log in. please help me figure this out. -Lauren
