Dead TCP/IP Stack = DEAD VISTA !!

Discussion in 'Windows 64 Bit' started by Skybuck Flying, Sep 17, 2007.

  1. Hello,

    I managed to wreck Windows Vista accidently in record breaking time, only a
    few minutes needed:

    1. Remove all protocols from "connections".

    2. Remove network device.

    3. Wait until Vista detects it's a non genuine copy or it's trail has

    4. Reboot

    End result:



    1. An internet connection is needed to re-activate Vista !

    2. Trying to restore the TCP/IP Stack via last known good configuration did
    not work (Black screen only).

    3. Trying to restore the TCP/IP Stack via safe mode is not possible because
    safe mode not allowed in reduced mode.

    4. Windows Vista was unable to restore the TCP/IP Stack by itself.

    Background story:

    I installed Vista in Virtual PC to test it out. I tried to get the virtual
    network working via a loopback adapter, I did the same with Windows 95 in a
    virtual pc.

    The funny thing is: Windows 95 worked perfectly and detected the virtual
    network hardware. Windows Vista totally fucked-up, me only partially to
    blame... I did not give Windows Vista a chance to boot-up, it was already
    running from a previous virtual session, maybe if I did a reboot it might
    have all worked flawlessly... however it still should have worked after I
    removed everything because that's EXACTLY what I did in Windows 95 and it
    worked there, and probably in XP it would have work as well. Many times
    rebooting Vista did not fix the problem !


    Windows 95 and Windows XP OWN Windows Vista BIG TIME.

    Pretty fucking unbelievable.

    Also fortunately for me I do have a backup of the virtual machine
    somewhere... I am not sure if it's infected though... cause I used it to
    test something out ;)

    Your imagination obviously ain't very good.
    I've thought Vista sucked and stank like a putrid swamp full of shit
    with week-old bodies left to rot since day-one of its release.

    Every "feature" they declaim for the vomit is something any other OS
    would consider a horrid bug to be fixed before release.

    The only "advantage" it has is for Micr$hit to turn over and sell new
    product, along with forcing people to seriously upgrade their computers
    or the stinking thing won't run at all (Which, to my mind, is a good
    thing ... the not-running, that is).

    That's what you get when a company becomes so entrenched that their main
    business becomes forcing the sale of new products, no matter how horrid
    they are, instead of producing products that people want or need.

    Nor XP, for that matter.
    They do security updates about every 12 hours, it seems sometimes.

    Or you could do it by phone. OK, that's unplikely to be a pleasant
    experience, but as far as MS are concerned, you haven't really finished
    installing Vista until you've activated it, so you complaint is much the
    same as saying "I pulled the plug during SETUP and now the OS doesn't

    On the bright side, since this all happened before activation, not only
    will you not have lost any important data (this all happened, like, two
    minutes after installation completed, right?) but you also haven't wasted
    an activation on a VM that you are now going to discard.

  7. Phone doesn't work as well me thinks.

    One still needs an internet connection ?! WOW ;)

  8. I mean my phone is working, that's not the problem.

    I checked all possibilities and all possibilities need an internet
    connection ?!

    I am not 100% sure, but I am not gonna check now, would be a waste of time

  9. Exactly that's another thing which absolutely sux:

    Windows XP 64 bit and Vista have absolutely no backwards compatibility for
    old software.


    They least they could do is provide an MS-DOS Emulator.

    Shamefull how I have to use something like a third party developed DOSBOX
    software program to do that !

    LOL. Linux fanboi-ism lives.

    How many days to reboot doesn't mean much in the face of sub-20%
    corporate acceptance.
