SMP!

I finally upgraded from two single clients to one SMP, and just passed the 10 WU mark. 450 ppd ----> 1800 ppd! :D

It's a Dell laptop, P8800 Core2 Duo 2.66, 8gb ram, Win7 64.

I'm GUESSING that I need to do three separate "New" entries, i.e., 3. New -> DWORD Value -> "ColorDepth"=dword:00000004 (pasted in for the value) That's very close. You're right, dword is the type, so it's like this: New -> DWORD Value. Name it "ColorDepth". Right-click and choose "Modify". Enter t...

That's odd. FahMon updated fine for me yesterday. Still, you can look at the log files to see the time for each 1% step, and calculate it out for the 2137 points.

That's what FahMon tells me. Also, looking at the log files gives me ~50 hours total working time, 2137 points = about 1000 ppd. This is my work machine, though, so it has other tasks that slow it down.

Oh, one more thing, since you're wanting to do graphics stuff in XP Mode - it defaults to 16-bit color (ugly). The following worked for me. In xp mode, start->run->type "regedit". Then find the location below in the tree and add the items. or, put all the lines below into a .reg file and double-clic...

That's correct. You have to open XP Mode in a window, add the item to its start menu. Then close the XP window. There's a sub-menu in Win7 that includes the XP start menu items. (most but not all of them, and I'm having trouble understanding the criteria)

sorry - i have a tendency to use too few words to explain myself. In XP mode, you're basically running another computer inside a window. That computer has its own set of drives. When you're there, opening up the C drive to look at files will only open the XP mode C drive. All your files (Except for ...

One more gotcha:
Under xp mode, your files will be located on a sort of "network share" drive, that links to the host machine's C drive, not on the XP virtual C: drive. You'll probably want to make some shortcuts, or map a network drive, for quicker access.

In Virtual PC's settings, you can specify where the virtual disk file is located. That sounds like you can do exactly what you're talking about. You can create multiple virtual disks and mount them in XP mode, as well.

I'm in that boat with my new machine here at work. Some of the development tools we use won't run (yet) on Win7-64. XP Mode is the way we handle those.

Also note you can use other virtual machine systems besides Microsoft's. VMWare is one I've seen discussed.

I'm back! It's been a couple years since I've been folding, for various reasons. I've got a new machine at work - P8800 - 2.66 GHz core2 duo laptop. It's folding with 2 instances (max on both cores) and nearly silent still.

I'm at rank 153 now, but plan to climb my way out of that pit.

Good:
The added fin area should be in the main airflow path of a normal case setup.
Heatpipes and copper.

Bad:
The added (copper) fin area is on the least supported corner of the card.
