  • Blog Post: Windows Recovery Environment

    I've got some time on my hands (I'm at home not feeling too well) and decided that I'd spend a bit of time setting up the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) on my laptop. I've been meaning to do this for ages, as I want to enable BitLocker (and be able to recover my data if my laptop ever decides to...
  • Blog Post: Windows Vista Hardware Assessment 2.1 Released

    I just found out that we release an updated version of the Windows Vista Hardware Assessment Solution Accelerator yesterday - and haven't made any 'noise' about it (we seem to be pretty good at 'stealth marketing').

  • Blog Post: Windows Vista Performance

    I've been talking to a few people recently who are using Windows Server 2008 as a workstation. Some of their comments are along the lines of: "Server 2008 has the same code base as Vista SP1, how come it feels quicker?". Interestingly there doesn't seem to be a good answer (yet). I've been shown a...
