    How do I boot from CD in 8.1?

    You may have safe boot enabled. If your Laptop has a Windows 8 logo, you probably have. Your CD drive kicks in, cause the BIOS checks all drives, but then it finds that the XP installation CD has no valid signature to safe boot and does not offer it in UEFI/BIOS nor does it boot from it...

    Are you talking about Event ID 4672? This one probably occurs next to your login event because your ID has adminstrator privilege? See Audit Sensitive Privilege Use

    Hi! First of all I want to tell you that my computer is still running, so my issue is not urgent as some others may be. Yet I hope that someone may take his time to give me some hints. I am familiar with computers, but do not have deep knowledge about many parts of the operating system. I am...

    Thank you for that detailed posts, genet! Does that mean I could store my Product Key in my computer's UEFI and then wouldn't need to type it in during installation? Or is this only for OEMs?
