Hey guys, I have a bit of tech project I am having trouble. I am trying to make Windows multi-boot configuration but it seems to fail. I want fast boot so I have to use UEFI, but Vista seems unable to work with UEFI. I checked online, Vista64 can use UEFI. Trouble is, I manage to boot Vista in UEFI mode but freezes at "Windows is loading files". Google only tells me it's the HDD, but I verified it works. I suspect it might a Graphics driver issue since the image fragments and I can see the loading bar at the top of the screen but " Windows is loading files"... Comment too long.

if i remember, getting the older OS'es to ply with the newer ones is a challenge, so i gave up and installed 2 diff HDDs, one for XP and Vista, and a second for Win 7 and 8. in the BIOS, i can select which SATA HDDs are on or off, so if i wanna switch from the old to the new sets, i just reboot, and disable/enable the appropriate drive. some BIOSes let you change the boot order, so you dont have to disable anything, but mine only boots from lowest available SATA.
Straight to the point, gonna build a lowdraft jetboat for cleaning up about 2 miles of creek.
working on designing the engines "jet part" not too much online information on how exactly the "jet part" part of the engine works. Been looking a lot of RC related jet boat posting, seems like a lot of the math and testing has already been done for rpm to prop pitch to intake to nozzle sizes. so mainly working off that.
Anyone here have any sort of experience just working one these things?
I have everything else I need design wise, but this... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>968274 The creeks got lots of fallen trees in it, that sit just below the water, we've tried to take a regular john boat with an outboard out to clean it, but some spots are really bad, and require you to go over the trees first before you should cut them, because we're using the boats + electric winches to drag the logs to the banks, otherwise they'd fall to the bottom, and eventually get floated/pushed to the next low part or choke point of the creek and get super stuck, we've already removed ones like...

>>968278 And here's an example sorta what I'm talking about. since we use the boats for moving the logs around, you can see how getting over the log first benefits one.
A: no bend to pull the log through. B: once over, you have a straight away to pull the log up C: can use a combination of the flow, and a pulley off the bank, with a winch rope pulling it towards the bank, and the flow keeping it from anchoring it to the bottom.
I've recently acquired some land and it's got a lot of shit on it, among that shit is a 20ish by 30ish slab. Slab is about 40 years old and the original house burnt like 20 years ago. Over the width of the slab I've measured a 3.5 inch slope and it's got a few cracks here and there. Would it be easier to lay new slab on top to build a house on or to build a cinder block crawl space with a subfloor?
>>968038 I just wrapped some kenthal wire and made a spring looking deal. It is 24 gauge runs about 1 ohm per linear foot, so I did about 9 foot worth to get about 15 amps in theory, it is probably less though with heating up and all the other factors
PVC pipes gets brittle and breaks easily over time, I think because UV rays break it down right? Would spraying a thick coat of paint or something prevent that from happening? I know they are pressure rated, but I don't want that shit exploding into a million jagged pieces.
Halp /diy/. I was trying to install new door casings and while driving a nail in to the first plinth, it split in half about a 1/4" from where the nail was. Did I do something wrong? Are the nails too thick? Is it just because they're cheap and made of pine?
For me, my list is as follows: Just got the Sherwin Williams whiteboard kit. Im going to take my main office wall and turn it into a whiteboard. Since SW paint for this is clear, I have to paint it white before hand. Idea Paint is $200 a quart, this is $50 a quart. Given I need to prepaint the wall, im in this for $80.
I'm also going to seed start this weekend for my first garden. Next weekend... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Uhh, how much is a standard whiteboard? What do you need a whiteboard that size for in what I'm assuming is your home? And why is it so expensive?
Starting a bathroom remodel soon, can't commit myself to starting the teardown, as I have no experience in tiling. Is this something I can pick up on quickly? I'm tiling the floor and shower, and removing tile from walls to paint. Will probably do a 4 inch tile border around base. Which do I need to do first, shower tile or floor? What do I use as a border for the shower tile? Is there a certain paint... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>967683 >>967683 No prob. I do accounting for a living, and I am considering grad school or going to for the CPA for my 2nd time. Whatever path I go, I need the whiteboard for notes. I used to take painters tape and tape notes to my walls in school to help study. This is to visually layout chunks of info. The fine detials cant fit on the board, but at least I can draw out some rules and regs to understand it easier.
So /diy/, I'm working on some old gun stuff and I want to try and touch up the metal on it and try and make it somewhat pretty. I have a variety of tools at my disposal, namely a beefy dremel that I am currently intending to do most of this with.
How would /diy/ go about making old steel pretty again? So far I've tried steel brush (For removing 60 years of rust+grease off the top) -> Aluminum Oxide grinding wheel (To smooth out deep scratches) -> Felt wheel + red polishing compound and the end result was pic related. Not really sure what I can expect... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Same way you polish anything. Start at low grit, work your way up, making sure to completely eliminate all the scarthces from the grit below. For steel 200-800, followed by a buffing wheel with compound, will give you a mirror shine. Expect to spend many hours. There are no shortcuts.
>>967685 This may be a shock, but I've never properly polished anything before so this is new to me. I will take what you said in mind, but I at least have some leeway as I'm not exactly going for a mirror finish, rather try and take care of scratches/pitting before parkerizing or blueing the steel
How can I make my door more sound proof without replacing it? Its made of wood
I share a hall way with some chinese and and they fucking drink and gamble in the hallway all fucking night long. They are pretty loud when they are drunk, I can easily hear it over my tv and in my bedroom.
>>967559 >>967563 I wouldn't do that. There's way more of them then me and I'm sure at least one of them has a knife or something. I would rather just make my door more soundproof then call the police or start a fight and get stabbed or shot
Hello /diwhyers. I want to purchase a (used?) drone with a decent camera and a decent video display on the transmitter for under $300... I have about 20+ heroin deals happen in my parking lot every day and the cops won't do shit. I want to find a drone or modify one in order to fuck with the dealers as they deal. I want to be able to fly out of line-of-sight so they can't tell where the drone is coming from. My plan is to record their reactions to a drone flying in front of their car during a deal.
What do y'all recommend that's under $300, but will... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
