CloudReady Default Chronos Password

Neverware leverages open source Chromium for their CloudReady product. It's a lifesaver for old hardware in the house that you want to build for family that you know you do not want to give a Windows or Linux laptop to. All they will do is call you so Chromebooks make it easy. If you do not have the money to buy a Chromebook or you just want to use the hardware that is already available. Use CloudReady.

Since the company uses the official Chromium OS from Google. They aren't doing any copyright infringement and they are allowed to sell and distribute the open source version of the OS, unlike unapproved "clones" that will be hammered down by Google. You get the best of both worlds with Google's ChromeOS and your own old or newer hardware you want to re-purpose.

If you want to still use Ubuntu or a Linux variant for testing, simulations or something advanced, you can use Crouton if you don't want to bother with dual booting. Since it's a "developer&qu…

Cybersecurity Training for Less than $300!!

Image
Ok. Since the IT Market is going in the following avenues and you plan on staying in IT and making more than US $100,000 a year. You need to practice. Also, one of the joys of learning and staying in IT is the ability to resolve the problem everyone learning on the cheap has to do. Even though I can likely buy a fancy schmancy $600 or $1500 laptop. I like to keep it inexpensive and cheap and actually focus on learning.

How to Install Windows 7 or 10 Using VMware PVSCSI Drivers

Image
Ok. So... installing VMware PVSCSI Adapters on a VM is a pain in the neck if you don't know how to do it. So...I want to save people some time. I figured out this is the fastest and less complicated process to get this done. These VM's are good for anything that requires speed.

Thanks Carl for your blog for VMware View!http://www.carlstalhood.com/vmware-horizon-7/

1. Reference VMware KB article: https://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1010398

1a. The trick is to use 2 CD/DVD drives!!






1b. Add your second (2nd) CD/DVD!!

2. Create your VM. Make sure that your CD/DVD IDE is 0:0 or it won't boot to Windows.  VMware Tools .ISO file should be 0:1.

3. DO NOT use the VMware Tools that comes with the ESXi host installation. Use the Latest VMware Tools. As of this blog entry. The latest VMware Tools release is 10.0.9. This is the Official Location for VMware Tools. Do not download it from anywhere else. https://packages.vmw…
