Getting a winload.exe Missing or Corrupt after Cloning new drive...
Well, after upgrading the hard drive on my notebook to the Hitachi 200 Gig 7,200 drive, first thing is see is the message that Winload.exe is missing or Corrupt. Turns out it's a simple fix and you can try two ways to fix. I was using Apricorn's Easy upgrade for SATA drives to make the clone. Great software good price and the USB external caddy now holds my old 2.5" SATA drive. One thing is they specifically state that it doesn't work with Vista - that's for the cloning software running "under" Vista. ......

Intel 3945ABG, Vista, and Driver Quality Issues - Dell has the latest & best...
I've been running Vista on a Toshiba M5 for quite some time. Since the RTM, the drivers for the 3945ABG driver from Intel have been garbage.

Restoring Missing Toolbox Items in Visual Studio 2005 - just another Annoyance
On one of my machines, when attempting to build out a small SSIS solution none of the toolbox items were showing. Turns out there's a quick way to recreate/reset them. Just delete the "toolbox*.*" files from the "%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\VisualStudio... directory. Next time you open VS.NET 2005, it rebuilds from the defaults - you loose any customizations.

Installing ADAM on Vista
Ryan Dunn points out on his blog how to install ADAM on Vista. Basically, the installer chokes. His approach is to install on a different machine (not Vista), then copy the files over, registry change, run the admininsall.exe, then import the LDIF schema's you want. One thing you can also do is use 7-Zip to extract the "ADAM" directory from the installer, then just start from step 2 on Ryan's list - saves a bit of time if you don't have another VM handy. Here's Ryan's list repeated. << Extract ......
