    Perhaps just my experience, but on my last four laptops one cannot simply boot to a USB or DVD or ext drive. Secure boot and UEFI will not allow it. Make all the changes you want to setup/bios and...

    I like OneDrive but want to sync when I want, not use auto sync. So far, "pause" seems to hold, but I really wanted to turn it off. Oh well

    I have always read one should never use the unsubscribe link. It tells the sender you are a real person so might invite lots more mail.
