How can I change a BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death) to another color?

When you receive a STOP error, Windows displays the STOP on a Blue screen, hence the name BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death).

If you prefer a Red screen with White text, or any other color combination that is easier for you to see:

1. Open %SystemRoot%SYSTEM.INI in Notepad.exe.
2. Locate the [386enh] section.
3. If the MessageBackColor= and MessageTextColor= entries are present, change them. Otherwise, add them to the end of the section. To have a Red screen with White text, use:


Using the following codes (case is important):

0 = black
1 = blue
2 = green
3 = cyan
4 = red
5 = magenta
6 = brown
7 = white
8 = gray
9 = bright blue
A = bright green
B = bright cyan
C = bright red
D = bright magenta
E = bright yellow
F = bright white

4. Save the changes to the %SystemRoot%SYSTEM.INI file.
5. Shutdown and restart your computer.

How can I use Microsoft FrontPage to back up or restore a Microsoft SharePoint site?

FrontPage lets you create archives of SharePoint sites for backup and restore purposes. To do so, perform the following steps:

1. Use Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) to open the SharePoint site.

To restore a site, perform the following steps:

4. Right-click one of the links and select Hyperlink Properties.

How can I burn a CD-ROM image from the command line?

The Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP resource kits provide the cdburn.exe utility, which, like the dvdburn.exe utility, can burn an ISO file to a physical CD burner drive and uses the format

cdburn <drive>: <image>

Typing cdburn with no parameters will list the utility’s Help information, which includes additional options related to the speed of the burn, type of write mode (e.g., session-at-once instead of the default track-at-once), and sector postgap options.
