    Dual Boot Windows 7 and Windows 8 - Delete Windows 8

    Shawn, I wish I knew why my uninstall did not work as advertised as I followed your tutorial to the letter. At the present, I don't have the time to sacrifice to make another run at it. When I get the time, then I'll make a sys img backup, install, and try to uninstall again immediately...

    Dual Boot Windows 7 and Windows 8 - Delete Windows 8

    Sure hope you made a system image backup of your Win 7 before installing Win 8. I was lucky and had made one so I didn't lose much when the uninstall of Win 8 did not work "as advertised". You will notice that Shawn's snapshots always show a 100 mb reserved partition.

    Force full shutdown of Win 8

    Agree. As said I think in ARS Technica, Window Everywhere is really Windows Nowhere. An operating system can no be all things to all people. Different user groups have different needs. If Win 8 designers continue to stick their heads in the sand, then that will be a god-send for all of the...

    Force full shutdown of Win 8

    Good People, I think some misunderstanding exists here. This is about more than shutting down your computer. In Savill's article, he gives the following link: Delivering fast boot times in Windows 8 - Building Windows 8 - Site Home - MSDN Blogs For serious technical addicts, then I consider...
