Say, there is a ASUS Laptop, which is shipped with Windows Vista. Now the user want to change it to Windows 7. Here is the tips to upgrade it.
1) Backup up the user files to a safe place. Maybe USB disk or NAS.
2) Go to the official site of Asus, download the latest BIOS and upgrade it to the latest one.
3) Check the BIOS with the tool, Everest Ultimate, or any other tools you like, see if SLIC 2.1 included in the BIOS.
4) If there is SLIC 2.1 , it is ready to install Windows 7 without problem. Just download Windows 7 OEM iso and install it, fresh install or upgrade, both are fine.
5) if there is SLIC 2.0 only, there is something to do.

Sometimes I need to flash the mother-board BIOS from DOS. Actually now I have not tools can boot the PC to DOS. There is no floppy disk driver on it. I can only make a DOS bootable USB disk to do the job.
So I have the USB disk on hand. It is 2GB, the smallest capacity one I have.
The method to make a bootable USB disk is a little bit different from the one I blogged 6 years ago.
1) Download flash tools – HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool
2) Download DOS package , named Win98 boot.
3) Decompress these two file.
It is new update again for Calibre. Version 0.9.9.
Until Calibre 0.9.8, it is 32bit program only. Even it works perfect on my Windows 7 64bit OS.
Now it has native 64bit program. I download it from http://calibre-ebook.com/download_windows64
Let me see the release notes below.
I use Ubuntu on my Netbook, Acer Aspire One. It has only 8 GB SSD as storage.
The disk space is always tight there. That is why I install Lubuntu on it. Light and quick respond.
After a few months use and a few times update. The free space is even tight. I have to do something.
OK, I would like to introduce this ubuntu tool, Ubuntu Tweak. It has a built-in function, Janitor.
Just a week, Calibre 0.9.8 came.
Here is some new for it.
- Add an option to show the cover size in the book details panel on the right. Option is in Preferences->Look & Feel->Book Details
- Kobo driver: Add support for firmware 2.2. Also add an option to send series information to the device.
The newest Kobo firmware can display series information. Unfortunately, the Kobo does not read this information from the ebook file itself. It has to be sent separately after the Kobo has finished processing the new files. So you might have to connect – send books – disconnect and then re-connect for the series infor to show up. Fixes #1084388 (Add support for series on Kobo devices)
- Catalogs: Allow using custom columns as the source for Genres when generating catalogs
- When the user asks calibre to convert a book, show a small animation to make highlight that the convert job has been queued to run in the background
- Add support for the notification center in OS X 10.8
- calibredb: Add an option to specify the cover to use when adding books with calibredb add.
- EPUB Input: Add support for EPUB files with broken central directory records *and* data descriptors
- Comic metadata: Support reading metadata from cbr files. Also read the comments and published date info from the metadata.
- Speed up processing of RAR and CBR files by avoiding an extra file copy
- Add driver for Nexus 10 on linux.
