After you install Windows 8.x or Windows 10, you may find the CD/DVD drive is not recognized. Resolution:
Open Command Prompt as an Administrator and run the following command:
reg.exe add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\atapi\Controller0" /f /v EnumDevice1 /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000001
Reboot the system and verify if the problem has been resolved.
Do you have problems with Veeam Entpoint Backup or Windows Backup fails with VSS error 12289 on a iMac? Just disable the Apple HFS driver and reboot. I use Autoruns from Sysinternals for that:
After that you have no access to the OS X HFS partitions, but for me this is no problem. I haven’t use that any time.
I search for a easy guid to install ipkg on my Synology DS415play with Intel Atom CPU. I found a guid by Edward P:
Connect to your NAS as root through SSH
Go to a temporary folder, for example: cd /volume1/@tmp
Download the bootstrap script:
Make the downloaded script file executable:
chmod +x syno-i686-bootstrap_1.2–7_i686.xsh
Execute the bootstrap script:
Installation should now be completed. To test it, run:
I wanted to erase and overwrite the data on some hard disks that I need to downgrade my RAID 5 from three 4TB WD Red to only two. The erase function on the webgui doesn’t work – something message like “don’t possible with your drive”. I search and found an alternative:
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdX bs=1M conv=noerror
To identify the disk use fdisk and/or hdparm:
hdparm -I /dev/sdX
To run the dd command furthermore after disconnection from the SSH connection, use
nohup: nohup dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdX bs=1M conv=noerror
1. Get Disk-ID from Disk Utility.app (“disk1” in my case)
2. Open Terminal
3.Change current directory to: /Applications/VMware Fusion.app/Contents/Library/
4. Run vmware-rawdiskCreator with the right disk. This will create a new external-hdd.vmdk file in your home folder:
./vmware-rawdiskCreator create /dev/disk1 fullDevice ~/external-hdd ide
5. Open Vm Config file (*.vmx) with TextEdit and add following lines:
ide1:1.present = "TRUE"
ide1:1.fileName = "external-hdd.vmdk"
6. save and quit
