    How to Make a Bootable USB Disk and Install Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows XP 

    Ever faced a virus attack on your PC? Have an old laptop that refuses to boot up one fine day, throwing up errors such as bootmgr missing or NTLDR missing? Your best option in both these cases may be to reinstall Windows on your computer. When you first use your computer, you’re prompted to create a DVD backup of your Windows install, but keeping a DVD safely and not losing it can be a bother. Being able to reinstall Windows using a USB you just keep nearby can be a big help, and to do this all you need to do first is create a bootable Windows USB drive. This is also very helpful if you bought a compact laptop – many smaller new devices don’t have a DVD drive.

    (Also see: How to Make a Bootable USB Disk for Windows 10)

    Remember you’ll need a working Windows install (any version) to do this – if your computer won’t boot, use a friend’s to follow these steps.

    Here’s everything you need to know about the process.

    How to Create a Bootable Windows 7 USB Drive

    The first thing you need is a Windows ISO or an image file. This is a virtual copy of a Windows installation DVD and you can source this legally from Microsoft without a product key. Here are the links for various edition of Windows 7.

    Windows 7 Ultimate (32 bit)

    Windows 7 Ultimate (64 bit)

    Windows 7 Professional (32-bit)

    Windows 7 Professional (64-bit)

    Windows 7 Home Premium (32-bit)

    Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit)

    You’ll still need a valid product key when you reinstall Windows so make sure you keep that safely.

    Once you’ve downloaded the Windows 7 ISO file, follow these steps to burn it to a pen drive.

    Download the Windows USB/DVD tool from here and run it.

    Click Browse and select the downloaded Windows 7 ISO file.

    Click Next.

    The next page asks whether you want to save this file to a USB or a DVD. Click USB device.

    Connect a pen drive with at least 4GB space to your computer. Make sure you back up all data on the pen drive to your computer as it will be erased during this process.

    Select your pen drive from the drop down menu and click Begin copying.

    When this process is complete, you’ll have a bootable Windows 7 USB ready.

    How to Download and Install Windows 10 Technical Preview for Phones 

    Windows 10 Technical Preview for phones is now available to download. This is a pre-release version of Microsoft’s upcoming mobile operating system. You should only download this if you want to try a new operating system on your Windows Phone device. Since this is beta software, many of your favourite apps may not work on it and upgrading to it right now is not recommended on your primary phone as the preview is still very much a work in progress.

    If you have a spare Windows Phone device lying around or if you love playing around with latest (potentially buggy) builds of operating systems, then read on.

    Supported devices

    Currently, Microsoft says only six Lumia phones can download and install Windows 10 Technical Preview for phones. These are:

    Lumia 630Lumia 635Lumia 636Lumia 638Lumia 730Lumia 830

    More phones will be supported in future builds, but for now only users of the phones listed above can try Windows 10 Technical Preview.

    Backing up your data

    This is beta software and hence can be very buggy. That’s why we recommend that you make a complete backup of your Windows Phone first. We have written a detailed guide on how to backup and delete all data on your Windows Phone device and you must go follow all the steps listed there before proceeding.

    How to Download and Manually Install Android 5.1 Lollipop on Google Nexus 5, Nexus 7, and Nexus 10 

    Google on Monday began rolling out the first major update to its Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system. The update, Android 5.1 Lollipop, will be rolled out to various devices, with the Nexus series the first in line to get the latest version. The Nexus 5, Nexus 7 Wi-Fi and the Nexus 10 are the three devices that will get this update first as Google posted Android 5.1 Lollipop factory images for these devices on its website. If you can’t wait for the OTA update to arrive, you can use these images to install Android 5.1 Lollipop on your device.

    You can manually download and install the Android 5.1 Lollipop factory image from Google’s website. This process is not recommended for anyone but the most advanced users who have a bit of technical know-how. This process will erase all your data, so make sure you back up your Android device first. If you understand the risks and own a Google Nexus 5, Nexus 7 Wi-Fi or a Nexus 10, you can use these steps to flash the latest version of Android Lollipop on to your device.

    1. Download and install the latest Android SDK on your Windows computer. This installs two programs, ADB, and Fastboot, which can be accessed through the command terminal on your PC, as a part of the software development kit.

    2. Add the SDK folder to the PATH by following these steps:

    Right click My Computer and click on Properties.
    Click on Advanced System Settings.
    Click on System Properties > Advanced > Environment Variables.
    In the window, select Path, then click on Edit, and then type in the name of the directory where you installed the SDK, and remember that each entry is separated by a semi-colon.

    3. Enable USB debugging on your device. First, go to Settings > About Phone > Software information.

    4. Tap Build number seven times.

    5. Go to Settings > Developer options. Tick USB debugging.

    6. Download the correct factory image for your device.

    Android 5.1 Lollipop for Nexus 5

    Android 5.1 Lollipop for Nexus 7 (Wi-Fi)

    Android 5.1 Lollipop for Nexus 10

    7. Extract the image on your computer.

    8. Connect your device to your computer over USB.

    9. Start the device in fastboot mode.

    For Nexus 5, hold the volume up, volume down and power buttons while powering on the device. The full list of key combinations for different devices can be found here.

    You can also boot into fastboot mode using the ADB tool: With the device powered on, go to the command terminal and execute the following: adb reboot bootloader

    If needed, unlock the device’s bootloader through your computer using the command terminal and executing: fastboot oem unlock

    Open a command terminal and navigate to the unzipped system image directory.

    Execute flash-all.bat, which was a part of the unzipped image file. This script installs the necessary bootloader, baseband firmware(s), and operating system. For this to work, you need to have added the folder where ADB and Fastboot are installed to the system’s path as described in step 2.

    When this is done, Google recommends that you lock the bootloader for security. You can do that by booting the device in fastboot mode while still connected via USB, and using the command terminal to execute: fastboot oem lock.

    While this method will install Android 5.1 Lollipop on your Nexus device, we still suggest that you wait for the OTA update to ensure a hassle-free update process.

    How to Use Custom Download and Install Directories With GOG Galaxy 

    GOG Galaxy is a new PC game distribution client similar to Steam, minus the negatives such as always online requirement and mandatory DRM. Its catalog includes new games like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt as well as classics such as Planescape: Torment and Ice Wind Dale.

    (Also see: I Have Over 300 Games on Steam and I’m Leaving It All Behind for GOG Galaxy)

    Though GOG Galaxy is still in beta (final release features will include ability to rollback game updates and notifications) there are a few things you can still do to make the most of it.

    This guide tells you how to manage your GOG game downloads and extras. It’s a handy feature that lets you install games on a faster hard drive, or to keep all the installers on a different hard drive in the event of a hard drive crash, or if your usual location cannot take any more data.

    Download GOG Galaxy. Go to the GOG website and download the Beta.

    Install GOG Galaxy in a location of your choosing.

    Run the app. Click on the settings gear cog icon on the bottom left. This opens the settings menu.

    How to Download and Install Android M on Google Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 9, and Nexus Player 

    Android M, the latest version of the world’s most popular mobile operating system, was announced at Google I/O 2015 on Thursday. Android M is still some time away from being ready for rollout – the launch to consumers is expected in Q3 of this year – the preview version for developers is now available.

    (Also see: Android M: Top New Features in the Next Major Android Release)

    This version of the OS is not ready for most people and we strongly suggest that you do not try installing this on your primary device as there is a good chance that there are bugs to iron out at this stage. If you have a spare Nexus device that you want to try the Android M preview on, then you can go ahead and follow the steps described later in this article. Before you do that, it’s vital to take a full backup of your Android smartphone.

    (Also see: Google Photos With Free, Unlimited Storage: 10 Things You Need to Know)

    Android M preview is currently available on just four devices – Google Nexus 5, Google Nexus 6, Google Nexus 9, and Google Nexus Player.

    (Also see: Google Maps to Get New Offline Search, Turn-by-Turn Navigation Features)

    Here’s how to manually download Android M preview and install it on your Google Nexus devices.

    Download and install the latest Android Studio Preview on your Windows computer. This installs the ADB and Fastboot programmes, which can be accessed through the command terminal on your PC.

    Add the SDK folder to the PATH by following these steps:

    Right click My Computer and click on Properties.

    Click on Advanced System Settings.

    Click on System Properties > Advanced > Environment Variables.

    In the Window, select Path, then click on Edit, and then type in the name of the directory where you installed the SDK, and remember that each entry is separated by a semi-colon.

    Enable USB debugging on your device. First, go to Settings > About Phone > Software information.

    Tap Build number seven times.

    Go to Settings > Developer options. Tick USB debugging.

    Download the correct factory image for your device.

    Android M for Nexus 5

    Android M for Nexus 6

    Android M for Nexus 9

    Android M for Nexus Player

    Extract the image on your computer.

    Connect your device to your computer over USB.

    Start the device in fastboot mode.

    The easiest way to do this is to hold a key combination while powering up the device. For Nexus 5, hold the volume up, volume down and power buttons while powering on the device. The full list of key combinations for different devices is here.

    (Also see: Chromecast Gets New Autoplay, Gaming, Second Screen Features, and More)

    You can also boot into fastboot mode using the ADB tool: With the device powered on, go to the command terminal and execute the following: adb reboot bootloader

    If needed, unlock the device’s bootloader through your computer using the command terminal and executing: fastboot oem unlock

    Open a command terminal and navigate to the unzipped system image directory.

    Execute flash-all.bat, which was a part of the unzipped image file. This script installs the necessary bootloader, baseband firmware(s), and operating system. For this to work, you need to have added the folder where ADB and Fastboot are installed to the system’s path as described in step 2.

    When this is done, Google recommends that you lock the bootloader for security. You can do that by booting the device in fastboot mode while still connected via USB, and using the command terminal to execute: fastboot oem lock.

    (Also see: Android Wear to Get Always-on Apps, Wrist Gestures, and More; Now With Over 4,000 Apps)

    That will install Android M preview on your Nexus device. Android M will receive monthly OTA updates until the final version ships, according to a report, so you won’t have to repeat this complicated process again. We still recommend that you just wait a while until the OTA update arrives on your device, unless you want to stay on the bleeding edge of smartphone OS development.

    As the name clearly suggests, the MIUI 7 ROM is still in beta, which means the performance is likely to be unstable and it can even lead to data loss. Now that you know the risks of installing beta software, but want to proceed anyways, we suggest you backup your Xiaomi smartphone before proceeding.

    As of this moment, MIUI 7 is available for the following Xiaomi smartphones: Xiaomi Mi 4i, Xiaomi Mi 4, Xiaomi Mi 3, Xiaomi Redmi 1S, Xiaomi Redmi 2, Xiaomi Redmi Note, and Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G.

    Here’s how to download and install MIUI 7 on your Xiaomi smartphone:

    1) Identify your smartphone and download the MIUI 7 build corresponding to your smartphone.

    MIUI 7 for Xiaomi Mi 4i – Recovery ROM
    MIUI 7 for Xiaomi Mi 4 – Recovery ROM
    MIUI 7 for Xiaomi Mi 3 – Recovery ROM
    MIUI 7 for Xiaomi Redmi 1S – Recovery ROM
    MIUI 7 for Xiaomi Redmi 2 – Recovery ROM
    MIUI 7 for Xiaomi Redmi Note – Recovery ROM
    MIUI 7 for Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G – Recovery ROM

    Most users should download the Recovery ROM for their smartphone. Flashing Recovery ROM will not wipe your user data or the files in internal storage and it’s simple to use, so unless you are planning to start afresh we suggest you follow this method.

    2) Once you’ve downloaded the Recovery ROM corresponding to your device, rename the downloaded ROM file to update.zip on the computer.

    3) Connect your Xiaomi smartphone to your laptop via a Micro-USB cable, and copy the ROM file downloaded into the root directory of the internal storage of your device (do not put it in any other folder).

    4) Enter the Recovery mode of your device. There are 2 methods to do it as follows:

    Method 1: Launch Updater app on your device, click the … icon at the top-right corner, and select Reboot to Recovery mode to enter.

    How to Download and Install iOS 9 on Your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch 

    iOS 9, the latest and greatest version of Apple’s operating system for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices, is now available for download. If you’ve been wondering whether your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch is eligible for the update, and/ or how you can download iOS 9 on your Apple device, or how to take a backup of all data on your device before you install iOS 9, we have you covered.

    (Also see: 15 iOS 9 Features That Make Your iPhone and iPad Better Than Ever)

    Will my iOS device get iOS 9?
    If your device is running iOS 8, then it is eligible for the iOS 9 upgrade. This year Apple hasn’t discontinued OS upgrade support for any devices, but some features such as split-screen multitasking for iPad will only work on the newest devices. The following iOS devices will get the iOS 9 update. The iPad Pro, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, and iPad mini 4 will ship with iOS 9 pre-installed, and hence don’t appear in this list.

    (Also see: How You Can Get the iOS 9 Apple News App Outside the US)

    iPad mini
    iPad mini 2
    iPad mini 3

    Backup
    While the iOS update process is usually very smooth, it’s still recommended that you take a backup to ensure that your data is safe. Here’s how.

    (Also see: How to Take a Complete Backup of Your Old iPhone)

    You can do this via iCloud or iTunes, but we recommend that you do it via iTunes, because it doesn’t require an Internet connection. Here are the steps to take a backup of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch:

    1) Connect your iOS device to a PC or Mac.

    2) Open iTunes.

    3) On the top-left (to the left of My Music), click the icon that represents your iOS device (iPhone, iPad or iPod touch icon).

    4) Under Backups, you will see the sub-head Manually Back Up and Restore.

    5) Click Back Up Now to start backing up your iOS device.

    Once essential data from the default apps has been backed up, iTunes will ask you if you want to transfer purchases. This backs up all apps installed on your phone, along with data downloaded within those apps. To do this, you will have to sign in with your Apple ID.

    If you don’t have access to a computer, then you can use iCloud Backup. Only 5GB is free and you’ll have to pay Rs. 60 per month for additional storage on iCloud.

    1) To start backing up, on your iOS device, go to Settings > iCloud > Backup.

    2) Turn on the switch marked iCloud Backup. You’ll get a warning telling you that your iPhone will not back up to your computer automatically. Tap Ok.

    3) Once iCloud Backup is on, tap Back Up Now. This will start backing up your data to iCloud.

    Wait for the backup to finish before proceeding further. You should see the Last Backup time (which should appear right below Back Up Now) correspond to something recent once the backup is completed.

    Windows 10: 7 Default Settings You Should Change Immediately After Install 

    Released on July 29, Windows 10 is the newest desktop operating system from Microsoft that is now running on over 110 million devices. It comes with a plethora of useful new features including a revamped Start menu, digital assistant Cortana, and Action Center. Also, in terms of functionality and performance, the new operating system offers substantial improvements. But a number of annoying things Microsoft has set Windows 10 machines to do is just plain absurd. Here are those settings, alongside a simple guide on how to fix them.

    1) Stop automatic updates
    When Microsoft released Windows 10, it didn’t provide Windows 10 Home users with the ability to pause or skip any updates. Later on Microsoft backtracked a little and gave Home users the ability to stop automatic app updates, but it still doesn’t offer any option to users to pause, or stop Windows updates. There are a couple of workarounds, however. See our step-by-step guide on how to disable Windows 10 automatic updates for more.

    2) Stop automatic restart
    If you don’t have an issue with the automatic updates that Microsoft is sending in your way, you will perhaps still appreciate if your system didn’t reboot immediately every time it installed an update on your computer. To reschedule automatic reboots, follow the steps:

    Open Start menu and search for advanced update and choose Advanced Windows Update options.Under this, select Advanced options and on the top, change the settings to Notify to schedule restart.

    How to Download and Install Android 6.0 Marshmallow on Google Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7, Nexus 9, and Nexus Player 

    Google has announced the rollout of Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which means that eligible Nexus devices will get it via an OTA update soon. Some manufacturers such as Motorola might ensure that the update reaches your phone sometime soon, but most people will have to wait for quite some time to get this update.

    However, if you are lucky enough to own a Nexus smartphone or tablet, you can manually download and install Android 6.0 Marshmallow on your device. We still recommend the OTA update but if you can’t wait, then try this method at your own risk, after you backup all your data.

    (Also see: Six Superb Android 6.0 Marshmallow Features)

    Android 6.0 Marshmallow is currently available for the following devices – Nexus 6, Nexus 5, Nexus 9 Wi-Fi, Nexus 9 Cellular, Nexus 7 (2013) Wi-Fi, Nexus 7 (2013) Cellular, and Nexus Player.. Here’s how to manually install Android 6.0 Marshmallow on these devices.

    1) Download and install the latest Android Studio Preview on your Windows computer. This installs the ADB and Fastboot programmes, which can be accessed through the command terminal on your PC.

    2) Add the SDK folder to the PATH by following these steps:

    3) Right click My Computer and click on Properties.

    4) Click on Advanced System Settings.

    5) Click on System Properties > Advanced > Environment Variables.

    6) In the Window, select Path, then click on Edit, and then type in the name of the directory where you installed the SDK, and remember that each entry is separated by a semi-colon.

    7) Enable USB debugging on your device. First, go to Settings > About Phone > Software information.

    8) Tap Build number seven times.

    9) Go to Settings > Developer options. Tick USB debugging.

    10) Download the correct factory image for your device.

    Android 6.0 Marshmallow for Nexus 6

    Android 6.0 Marshmallow for Nexus 7 2013 Wi-Fi

    Android 6.0 Marshmallow for Nexus 9 Wi-Fi

    Android 6.0 Marshmallow for Nexus 9 LTE

    Android 6.0 Marshmallow for Nexus Player

    11) Extract the image on your computer. This should give you a tar archive file. Extract the tar file to get all the required files.

    12) Connect your device to your computer over USB.

    13) Start the device in fastboot mode.

    The easiest way to do this is to hold a key combination while powering up the device. For Nexus 5, hold the volume up, volume down and power buttons while powering on the device. The full list of key combinations for different devices is here.

    You can also boot into fastboot mode using the ADB tool: With the device powered on, go to the command terminal and execute the following: adb reboot bootloader

    If needed, unlock the device’s bootloader through your computer using the command terminal and executing: fastboot oem unlock

    1) Open a command terminal and navigate to the unzipped system image directory.

    2) Execute flash-all.bat, which was a part of the unzipped tar file. This script installs the necessary bootloader, baseband firmware(s), and operating system. For this to work, you need to have added the folder where ADB and Fastboot are installed to the system’s path as described in step 2.

    3) When this is done, Google recommends that you lock the bootloader for security. You can do that by booting the device in fastboot mode while still connected via USB, and using the command terminal to execute: fastboot oem lock.

    That will install Android 6.0 Marshmallow on your Nexus device. For more tutorials, visit our How To section.
