Temporary profile creates in Windows 7

I had a user who logs in with a domain account and creates a temporary directory every time he logs in. This is what I did that fixed it :

1. Log on to the system by using an administrative user account other than the user account that is experiencing the problem.
2. Back up all data in the current user’s profile folder if the profile folder still exists, and then delete the profile folder. By default, the profile resides in the following location: %SystemDrive%\Users\UserName, you could just rename it something different in the same folder.
3. Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
4. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.
Locate the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList
5. Under the ProfileList subkey, delete the subkey that is named SID.bak
Note SID is a placeholder for the security identifier (SID) of the user account that is experiencing the problem. The SID.bak subkey should contain a ProfileImagePath registry entry that points to the original profile folder of the user account that is experiencing the problem. You would delete the SID.BAK with an issue :

6. Exit Registry Editor.
7. Log off the system.
8. Log on to the system again.

Getting Panasonic CF-53 USB3.0 Drivers to load into WinPE/Landesk

This one was a headache! I got all drivers loaded properly for Panasonic CF-53 in Windows 7, except one unknown device, which was actually a USB 3.0 Hub driver. It would not load the traditional way, so what I ended up doing was taking the drivers, and putting them on the image itself under C:\windows\inf folder

If you would like the drivers, you can get them here :

How to burn dmg in windows 7

I got a 2006 Macbook Pro, which had 0’d out hard drive. So I wanted to get OS X loaded on to it. I found a dmg file that had OS X 10.6. Doing a quick Google search, I figured out I can easily burn the dmg file to be bootable.

What you need first is the application for your windows computer :

You can download the application from here : http://www.asy.com/sharetm.htm
or you can download the version I used here : http://uploadland.com/?d=4ED038641

You then run it, and get a 15 day free FULL trial, so you can use all of the capabilities the software has to offer. If you like it, I always advocate purchasing/paying for great pieces of software like this.

Very easily open the application, click run, unless you paid for it. You then need to point the application to your dmg file.

Now select your dmg file, and then you have it loaded into transmac, very similarly like in OS X environment. It almost looks as if it mounted it, but from what I can tell, it does not actually mount it. You can then right click and burn (assuming you have a sizable DVD/DVD DL inserted).

Pop it into your Mac, and you have a bootable DVD from a dmg file coming from a Windows environment.
