Enable or disable boot defrag Filed under: operating systems windows xp Pro, windows xp Home A great new feature in m*cro$oft Windows XP is the ability to do a boot defragment.

Reboot your computer. Launch apps with desired priority setting Filed under: operating systems windows xp Pro, windows xp Home This tweak will launch most executables with the priority setting you want it to have. Let’s say you have a game installed called HIGH NEEDS and the executable is called HN.exe Here’s what to do: -Create a new textfile in the game-app wathever-directory (let’s say C:HN), but instead of giving it the .txt extension you name it HN.bat -Right-click this file and choose ‘Edit’, you’ll see it’ll open notepad. Put this line in:cmd /c start /High NH.exe -Save (make sure you save it as .bat, not as .txt) and close. Now create a shortcut to this file and place it on your desktop. Every time you doubleclick this shortcut HIGH NEEDS will open with priority set to ‘high’. (ofcourse you can also create a batchfile on your desktop, containing the full path of the app you want to start but the nice thing of creating a shortcut is you can give it an icon). These are all the settings: Realtime, High, AboveNormal, Normal, BelowNormal, Low. *Realtime is not recommended unless you have a dual-CPU system!

Unlocking more space on your HDD

Required items: Ghost 2003 Build 2003.775 (Be sure not to allow patching of this software) 2 X Hard Drives (OS must be installed on both.) For sake of clarity we will call the drive we are trying to expand (T) in this document (means Target for partition recover). The drive you use every day, I assume you have one that you want to keep as mater with your current OS and data, will be the last dive we install in this process and will be called (X) as it is your original drive. 1. Install the HDD you wish to recover the hidden partitions (hard drive T) on as the master drive in your system with a second drive as a slave (you can use Hard Drive X if you want to). Any drive will do as a slave since we will not be writing data to it. However, Ghost must see a second drive in order to complete the following steps. Also, be sure hard drive T has an OS installed on it You must ensure that the file system type is the same on both drive (NTFS to NTFS or FAT32 to FAT32, etc) 2. Install Ghost 2003 build 2003.775 to hard drive T with standard settings. Reboot if required. 3. Open Ghost and select Ghost Basic. Select Backup from the shown list of options. Select C:\ (this is the drive we want to free partition on on hard drive T) as our source for the backup. Select our second drive as the target. (no data will be written so worry not). Use any name when requested as it will not matter. Press OK, Continue, or Next until you are asked to reboot. Critical step. 4. Once reboot begins, you must shutdown the PC prior to the loading of DOS or any drivers. The best method is to power down the PC manually the moment you see the BIOS load and your HDDs show as detected. 5. Now that you have shutdown prior to allowing Ghost to do its backup, you must remove the HDD we are attempting to expand (hard drive T which we had installed as master) and replace it with a drive that has an OS installed on it. (This is where having hard drive X is useful. You can use your old hard drive to complete the process.) Place hard drive T as a secondary drive in the system. Hard drive X should now be the master and you should be able to boot into the OS on it. The best method for this assuming you need to keep data from and old drive is: Once you boot into the OS, you will see that the second drive in the system is the one we are attempting to expand (hard drive T). Go to Computer Management -> Disk Management You should see an 8 meg partition labeled VPSGHBOOT or similar on the slave HDD (hard drive T) along with a large section of unallocated space that did not show before. DO NOT DELETE VPSGHBOOT yet. 6. Select the unallocated space on our drive T and create a new primary or extended partition. Select the file system type you prefer and format with quick format (if available). Once formatting completes, you can delete the VPSGHBOOT partition from the drive. 7. Here is what you should now see on your T drive. a. Original partition from when the drive still had hidden partitions b. New partition of space we just recovered. c. 8 meg unallocated partitions. 8. Do you want to place drive T back in a PC and run it as the primary HDD? Go to Disk Management and set the original partition on T (not the new one we just formatted) to and Active Partition. It should be bootable again if no data corruption has occurred. Caution: Do not try to delete both partitions on the drive so you can create one large partition. This will not work. You have to leave the two partitions separate in order to use them. Windows disk management will have erroneous data in that it will say drive size = manus stated drive size and then available size will equal ALL the available space with recovered partitions included. This process can cause a loss of data on the drive that is having its partitions recovered so it is best to make sure the HDD you use is not your current working HDD that has important data. If you do this on your everyday drive and not a new drive with just junk on it, you do so at your own risk. It has worked completely fine with no loss before and it has also lost the data on the drive before. Since the idea is to yield a huge storage drive, it should not matter. Do this carefully, if anything goes wrong, I am not responsible of it. Interesting results to date: Western Digital 200GB SATA Yield after recovery: 510GB of space IBM Deskstar 80GB EIDE Yield after recovery: 150GB of space Maxtor 40GB EIDE Yield after recovery: 80GB Seagate 20GB EIDE Yield after recovery: 30GB Unknown laptop 80GB HDD Yield: 120GB

Changing the DOS background colour

The value DefaultColor controls the foreground and background colors used in command prompt windows. It has a default value of 0, for standard white text on a black background. CHANGING DOS BACKGROUND Open your registry (press win+r and type regedit, hit enter) goto [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Command Processor] u'll find "DefaultColor" You can replace it's value with a two-digit hexadecimal number, in which the first digit selects a background color and the second a foreground color. The hexadecimal codes are: Hexadecimal value Color 0 Black 1 Blue 2 Green 3 Aqua 4 Red 5 Purple 6 Yellow 7 White 8 Gray 9 Light Blue A Light Green B Light Aqua C Light Red D Light Purple E Light Yellow F Bright White A value of F0, for example, would give black text on a white background, and 1E would yield yellow text on a blue background. The change should take effect the next time you open a console window.
