Why Intel Remove Support for USB based Windows 7 Installation?
I'm building a Skylake computer and I'm trying to install windows 7 via USB.
First, I discover that Intel removed support for USB based Windows 7 installations on Skylake. Microsoft removed support for the EHCI host controller and kept only the xHCI host controller spec. While the USB 3.0 spec is backward compatible with most USB 2.0 and 1.0 functions, installing windows 7 via USB on a Skylake PC is ridiculously hard.
I tried to use the installation CD, but the mouse and keyboard...

No, you shouldn't hate Microsoft for making it incredibly difficult to install a shitty operating system on a computer with a good processor.
Why the fuck would you want to use something old and outdated anyway?
I just ordered a 144hz monitor. Are they worth it or just a meme?
Can we get a nigrig thread?
Recently I'm thinking of getting one of these.
I'm very attracted from the detachable tablet and the specs seem ok too.
Only the price is kinda exaggerated.
web devs LITERALLY fuck off to >>>/g/wdg
Too early. faggot.
Delete this thread and kill yourself.
I did some basic CAD work years ago and I've always wanted to learn character design/3d modelling. Well now I'm unemployed and struggling to find any work, I thought I'd dedicate some time to learning.
What is (are the) industry leading software? 3DS Max?
Can you please recommend any websites/youtube channels that are good for learning from scratch? Your experiences?
3DS Max would be a great place to go. Or Maya if that was the character suite, I don't remember. You could use blender too but the learning curve is steep because like most free software it is very unintuitive.

A hypothetical question....
How would one permanently take a site like Facebook or Twitter or Instagram down so they wouldn't be able to restore their service? Would it be possible to destroy all their servers and backup servers and therefore kill their entire business?
The internet would be a much better place without them
Who else here is /PCI passthrough/?
man i wish i could do that but im a bit of a daft cunt to get trought all the qemu setup and all that shit, also i dont have integrated graphics
do you get the same performance you would running it natively? i've heard some people say it has too much overhead, maybe i could buy a cheap gt210 or something and try sometime
Had to turn of the HD audio kernel driver because it grabs the nvidia audio before pci-stub does, and I also had to pass in my USB headset which is a bit shitty. Otherwise it's working pretty great desu
It would be fairly accurate to say you get at least ~95% native performance.
Only real drag is the IO with say a hard drive, but that can be all but eliminated with an SSD or even better a RAM disk.
Here's a reasonable guide: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PCI_passthrough_via_OVMF
It has no part or model number, no serial, but is a complicated gadget with a multi-prong interface as well as a circular jack and a tripod thread. It was recovered from a lot of cryptographic gear.
WHAT THE HECK IS THIS THING?
How do I find motivation to get through obstacles in learning programming? I make a bunch of excuses which I feel are real but I also think I'm just making them up. How do I get past this shit it's so frustrating.
I love programming. It's just another ability under my belt, not to mention speaking a second language. What was that OP? Oh, yeah that sucks to hear about your plight. But, as they say, life goes on.
Windows 10 just tried to install itself on my machine. I had to cut the power to prevent the process from completing.
I don't even know if it's any good, I just think the UI is clunky (my mom got it with her new machine so I've had some experience with it). But I am 100% opposed to an operating system that tries to install itself.
Anyway, is interrupting the installation process this way likely to do any damage to my machine? I caught it at the 2% mark.
It's not that bad. The UI isn't really clunky. It's probably too late to stop the install. Just let it finish then roll it back and turn off automatic updates.
Sorry, I should clarify. I cut the power and restarted my PC, and it said 'restoring previous OS' for about 10 minutes before starting up with Win7 as if nothing happened. It even restored the tabs in my internet browser from the last time I was online.
Almost like it knew it was outta line and wanted to make amends.
I'm posting from said PC right now. I'm just worried if the digital pimp hand leaves any bruises.
When will the AMD meme finally die so Nvidia can make better cards?
What is the best domain parking service to collect ad revenue? What I'm looking for is a free service that gives me a slice of ad revenue without charging me fees like GoDaddy CashParking does.
I messed around with an actual cardboard Google Cardboard a while back and found it kind of neat. Now that VR is "out" and it's in more people's' hands, I decided to order one of these cheapo-Chinese plastic headsets.
Are there any phone apps that make use of Google Cardboard? Or would it be possible to say, render VR content on a desktop, then stream it to the phone over LAN? Or would the latency be too great?
General VR thread I guess
