    What does the Fox say?

    I don't recall "external device" being an option. I'm thinking I would have tried that. Pretty sure my only options are the two CD drives and the floppy drive. I've never really had good luck with dual boot machines. Might have to resort to that. But one question: since XP is no longer supported, wouldn't that open up the machine to security issues?

    What does the Fox say?

    I'm not sure what else I could share that I haven't. It doesn't boot from the USB ports; I have tried leaving a USB plugged in. The only options to set in the BIOS are the two CD drives I have and the one (yes indeedy) 3.25" floppy drive.

    What does the Fox say?

    I went into the BIOS and there wasn't an option to set a USB port to be a bootable drive. Not sure I know enough more to make it do so.

    What does the Fox say?

    Ok, I have an old PC from 2003 (a Sony Vaio) that I have been milking along. It's been acting up more lately than it used to and I have a software program that will really only run well on XP (SolidWorks v2004). I use SolidWorks on that PC occasionally and thus would like to keep it going. Anyway. A short while back the DVD drive quit reading DVDs, though it still reads CDs. Back when the PC was new I created some restore disks that consist of 1 CD that kicks off the restore and 1 DVD that has all the backup info on it, 3.6G worth. I would like to run this restore, but it won't read the DVD. It appears my options are to try to copy that DVD to multiple CDs... which I tried but the CD spanning method I used won't run properly at the "now insert the backup disc" point of the restore process. Apparently it's looking for the executable stored on the DVD. Does anyone have a really inexpensive solution for this? Is it possible to get it to boot from one of the USB ports? Cause I could totally get all the info on one USB.

    Dumb LinkedIN Recruiter Email of the day thread...

    It seems that nearly every recruiter in the history of ever is unacquainted with the function that adjectives play in the English language. No, I don't want to consider being an INSURANCE Agent, just because I am a PATENT Agent and for the same reason I am not interested in driving TRAINS as a licensed MECHANICAL Engineer. Although the prospect of driving a train, even as a mechanical engineer seems infinitely more enjoyable.

    PTC Creo 2.0 Question

    I'm not sure, but can't you just edit your trail file to exclude where you closed the file and recover all your work?
