  1. Reset the CMOS per someone from the Asus forums and that got it working in IDE mode When I switched to AHCI mode, it hung, so I hooked up another drive and restored the image to it and it threw the crc error again, but after canceling the image and doing it again it completed without problems. I guess it was a mixture of things. *shrugs*
  2. Basically I imaged the drive and then restored the image to the same drive. I took everything out except 1 stick of RAM and, while it didn't flip out over the CRC error at the beginning, it spit out a "corrupted gzip stream crc32 mismatch" but didn't fail. When I rebooted, it loaded everything fine. I guess I'll try it again and see if it succeeds, then start adding RAM and see what happens. EDIT: I copied the image to my data drive and it restored without displaying that "corrupted gzip stream -- crc32 mismatch" I guess the network card is being a pain.
  3. Got a quite... frustrating problem I keep running into on my main desktop PC. The problem is that after I restore an image (with clonezilla) onto a drive on that machine, the machine will hang at "Auto-Detecting SATA#..." on the next boot. Hooking that same drive up to another machine and restoring it there works perfectly fine. Also, just deleting the partitions on the drive and hooking it back up allows the machine to boot. It's puzzling, since I've tried other drives, other cables, other sata ports and other versions of Clonezilla, but the same thing happens. I've done memtest86+ as well as hdd diagnostics with no errors. With the latest stable version of clonezilla, it throws out a CRC error first and then if I try the restore again, it completes fine, but the machine hangs when it's trying to detect the drive. It's royally pissing me off, since I clone the drives, so I don't have to take them out of the PC they are in, and that is the only machine that is giving me problems. Ironically, restoring that same image on a different machine or even in a VM succeeds without any problems. If I've ruled out the HDD and Memory, what else is there to check? System specs: Asus BIOS 1005 P5Q SE 8GB DDR2 E8500 Core2Duo 320GB WD HDD 500GB Hitachi HDD GXT260
  4. +1 to VaKo. That's the way to deal with customer service people. Be polite and take down names and reference numbers.
  5. +1 to that. I tried running Sacred in VBox and is just dumped to the desktop. The hardware in VBox doesn't like to use D3D. I wouldn't want to run any game in there if I had a choice.
  6. I always use Sybex books, even if they are a tad of a snoozefest.
  7. I think it should go below this line: var $location = 'http://localhost:18083/'; I think it should be added below. var $rdpHost = 'HOSTNAME-OR-IP-OF-VIRTUALBOX'; where "HOSTNAME-OR-IP-OF-VIRTUALBOX" is what it says. :P
  8. Do you have the router set to allow remote management? If so, turn it off, or change which port it listens to. Make sure the ports are being forwarded correctly. Are you able to connect via ssh? It would be easier to deal with if you just used a tunnel to connect.
  9. It depends on how your network is set up. Normally you'd just need to forward port 80 or port 443 on the router. I don't allow it direct access to the internet, but SSH in and create a tunnel so I can connect (yes, I love SSH tunnels :D).
  10. Ask for the password when connecting via mstsc? As for phpvirtualbox not asking for a password, it's a requested feature but the Linux version doesn't have the required components to do so. Check here for more info. I'm using .htaccess as well as SSL to help secure phpvirtualbox.
  11. Yah, security is the big thing with wireless cameras. If you are going wired, might as well integrate the cable jack with the power, so you don't have blocks all over the place.
  12. That means that you didn't enable a RDP port on it. Select "Remote Console (RDP)" and then go to the "Remote Display" tab and enable it. It would also probably be a good idea to change which port it listens to as well, since you can't have all VMs listening on 3389. :)
  13. That would work. I've been eyeballing the Mole Camera by Astak. It's a bit expensive, but it looks nice overall (and works as a DVR too).
  14. The ISO is extracted. :) The lame part is that I can boot off an Ubuntu Desktop 10.04.1 x86 and x64 iso and install with no problems. Server seems to give me hell with "unable to mount cdrom"
  15. Were you able to install at as well? I keep running into the "cannot mount cdrom" error that I had in the OP. It boots, but won't install, even if I mount the thumb drive to /cdrom/ manually.
  16. An eee would work, but you probably won't find it for 200 bucks new.
  17. Interesting, maybe that's the problem. Thanks.
  18. Yah, I've got both VMs set up in bridged mode and both forwarded the ports manually and used upnp to open the ports. The ports were open, and it would download, but not upload.. so strange.
  19. They can get to the internet just fine. They can download from torrents just fine, it's the uploading that has me puzzled. I was able to seed a torrent using rtorrent from the host machine, yet I can't seed from the VMs. *shrugs*
  20. Hey, I was trying to download a torrent of CentOS but, while it's downloading just fine, the upload is still at 0. I've tried the same torrent on another (physical) machine and it uploads fine there, so I'm guessing that it doesn't like running inside a virtual machine. Anyway.. the setup I have is this: Ubuntu 10.04 Server running XP and Ubuntu inside VirtualBox. BitTorrent on WinXP - doesn't upload Transmission on Ubuntu - doesn't upload I've flushed the firewall rules on the host machine and there is no firewall enabled on either the XP or Ubuntu VM. I'm not sure where to go from there. Both VMs are using bridged networking with a static ip address, which I can ping and connect via RDP/NX without problems. Any ideas? EDIT: Tried rtorrent and it seems to be uploaded.. slowly.. but I guess that's normal for my crap connection. Better then not uploading at all. :P
  21. I've got a multipass with a bunch of crap on it that I use from time to time, one of the things on it is an Ubuntu livecd.
  22. Boot off a linux livecd and run smartctl.
  23. Installing from the Backtrack repos onto Ubuntu is not supported by the BT devs. You'd break ubuntu more then likely.
  24. Could be that the BIOS wasn't compatible. It's been known to happen, since it patches some of the kernel on the fly.
