How to install Hyper-V client role on your Windows 8 even though your proceessor does not have SLAT (ofcourse HypervV does NOT work though)
After feeling disappointed that I have an obsolete hardware which cannot run Hyper-V client in Windows 8 due to no SLAT, I still didn't give up. Some forums hinted that this would be possible using DISM. (and found that this is possible to install the role. But it does NOT work. Read on...)
I tried with this command to start with:
Started a command prompt with Admin privileges:
C:\Windows\SysWOW64>Dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:Microsoft-Hyper-V-
Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
You cannot service a running 64-bit operating system with a 32-bit version of DI
SM. Please use the version of DISM that corresponds to your computer's architecture.
The DISM log file can be found at C:\Windows\Logs\DISM\dism.log
Some more digging .. and I realised I have to do some steps and it all works :)
Solution: Run the command in C:\windows\Sysnative which avoids redirection.
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.2.9200]

C:\Windows\sysnative>Dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:Microsoft-Hyper-V
Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
Image Version: 6.2.9200.16384
Some info lost here....
The operation completed successfully.
After 2 reboots (first one should be a power off ).
HyperV client does NOT work though.. Any ideas?

Edit 19/8: This doesnt seem to work at boot :(
As Mini Xplus doesnt come with a connectivty cable and we need adb to play with it, we need to connect to it thru manually enabling adb on the device. I was wondering whether this can be done on boot or automatically when wifi is enable and realised it is very simple.
1. Install a free app from Market -> ADB WIFI (shows up as a Green Bug)
2. Launch it.
3. Go to options.
4. Enable the adb at boot option.
5. Test if the app works as expected

I removed lots of unwanted apks and my Mini Xplus boots and feels faster.
1. Connect thru adb
adb connect 192.168.100.1:5555
* daemon not running. starting it now *
* daemon started successfully *
connected to 192.168.100.1:5555
2. Mount in RW mode.
3. Launch shell and delete unwanted apks. Use command rm apkname.apk.

I also removed some modules (8188eu.ko,8189es.ko) from /system/vendor/modules. Not sure if these are needed but my MiniX is working fine.

The restore should work but I haven’t tested it yet.
Just got this Allwinner A10 (Cortex A8) based android device and already having some fun.
The device comes with a USB OTG. But unfortunately we do not have a cable for this device as you need a male to male USB cable (checking on this, not sure if it will work). The only way left to connect to the device is wifi. I performed the following steps:

2. Best option is set this variable in the /etc/profile like this:
3. For now just run:
or Reboot the system

I was unable to connect to VMs using the VMWare plugin in Firefox. I'm getting a strange error "cannot access Virtual machine console. The request timed out. The attempt to acquire a valid session ticket for "abcdefVM" took longer than expected. If this problem persists, contact your system administrator. ". Before I break my head on this, I wanted to quickly check an easy way to connect to the VMs.
Somewhere, I remember that Vmware uses VNC protocol. So did a quick search and found that we can indeed connect using any VNC client to connect to VMware VMs. Check this VMware KB article.
Finally, after some reading and searching, found a setting to resolve this. All we need to do is to add an entry in the VMX file:
“mainMem.useNamedFile=FALSE”Found the solution here http://www.tuxera.com/community/ntfs-3g-faq/#highcpu
