I have the same issue. I used the exact method describe here - Windows 10 Media Creator to upgrade. As I cannot find the 64bit driver from manufacturer of my PC , I use the driver in the following link
It can allow to use 1280 x 800 resolution.
I downloaded this link before I upgraded from windows 7 to windows 10. Then I ran the program in W 10. Then I went into device manager and told it to update the Microsoft basic driver, looking in the c:\ATI directory for the section marked drivers, a sub directory, and eventually it found the ATI radeon X1200 driver. It took a few minutes to work, but once it did it, it retained and used that driver and W7 high resolution in W10.
Why Microsoft couldn't do this is beyond me. I now have an ancient Toshiba P200D running really well W10. It did help that I put in 250Gb SSD a year ago and maxed out the memory at 4Gb.
Maybe synaptics driver too?

One quick point, having it work great over wifi is a different beast than wired (what we focused on before but is hard to reproduce). Unfortunately it looks like 5ghz doesn't have as much range as 2.4ghz, but there's less potential for interference as there's less devices on it and there are many more channels (3 on 2.4ghz vs. 20 on 5ghz). https://www.metageek.com/training/resources/design-dual-band-wifi.html
Independent of that though, I think the best results will be from having a repeater (can be simply a router) near where Nate is planning to use his phone (I'm guessing upstairs). Quick aside: Wifi's range is intentionally stunted (water in air stops it) so that each small circle of houses can share the 3-4 2.4ghz channels instead of having to compete with the square mile of houses around them. That's the way it's done at my work, lots of small focused (satellite-dish-like) wifi repeaters that have limited reception except underneath them, because you'd quickly run out of wireless channels to talk over otherwise.
We can plug the “repeater” into a Power over Ethernet adapter upstairs. I have one in my room to the right of the desk, if needed. If Nate has a 5ghz modem/router with him, it should be able to be used as a repeater. Otherwise I have a 2.4ghz wireless N router next to my bed that can be tried out.
Also, Nate, what modem do you have? I have never heard that a modem can't be used on a slower connection. What made you come to that conclusion? Mom and Dad have Frontier, not Comcast.
*it was hard to reproduce the video chat stuttering that nate was seeing while someone else was lightly using the internet, even over a wired connection. That issue still remains, and assuming it's still an issue, I would recommend a newer router that has “buffer bloat” fixes (I have some more info on that)
Why multiple users on home router can cause issues.

Why does a ram disk help?
It's recommended you make a ram disk of your output directory. Nolan saw only 300MB out of 1024 getting used for a SIM build. sudo mount -t tmpfs -o size=1024m tmpfs ~/mgmt/cr_mgmt/output/ Confirm with df -h Unmount it before deleting the repository so you don't bork the server (smile) sudo umount ~/mgmt/cr_mgmt/output/ * If you do bork the server, you probably want to read https://serverfault.com/questions/777299/proper-way-to-deal-with-corrupt-xfs-filesystems and eventually and carefully run xfs_repair -L /dev/dm-2, which will forcefully fix and wipe the filesystem history for the /home partition (/dev/dm-2)
Don't really understand it though, looking back So…when you've got two programs writing 0's sequentially to a bunch of memory (3/4 of RAM, say), why can't the kernel of Linux or Windows manage it well?
ps -eo min_flt,maj_flt,cmdfrom http://blog.scoutapp.com/articles/2015/04/10/understanding-page-faults-and-memory-swap-in-outs-when-should-you-worry
Use case was Simics Windows CR boot eating up RAM like crazy, but Linux not handling it well. Simics only ran “dump ram to disk” once memory was used up, so it could be stuck at close to max RAM amount forever even though it wasn't using it.
Gping didn't do this.

Generally works. Screwed up my chromebook though as it thought the internal flash drive counted as a USB drive.
Still-outstanding bug with OS X where you have to name the partition FAT32 and partition in the MS-DOS (FAT) with GUID scheme. https://github.com/unetbootin/unetbootin/issues/46
Use Remmina and install freerdp plugin for windows rdp. Jonathan said so.
Might have to do with CMOS battery and main battery dead, but other options are below:
Kill rdpclip.exe on both sides and restart. Worked for me!
Then add a DWORD value named “AllowRemoteRPC” and change its value to 1.“
In my case it was set to “0”. I changed it to 1 and all was good.

Goes blank when you launch it and it's the only window. Also need to back up AppData just in case…How to do efficeintly?
Great for incremental builds with lots of similar output files. Zip doesn't do this as their window size is <64K I guess. 7zip does by default though.
FreeNAS says to do compression instead with lz4 unless you have 5GB RAM for each 1TB of disk. http://www.freenas.org/blog/freenas-worst-practices/. Sounds like some implementation differences. And then forum people don't like it either! https://forums.freenas.org/index.php?threads/lz4-compression-enabled-by-default.20260/
If you're sharing files over a long haul internet connection, say to Poland, it's really nice to have remote differential compression enabled. It's pretty cool, it uses “shards” from nearby similar files to really only send the parts that change on either side of the connection. It's a feature in Microsoft's Distributed File System. More to read about too.

Two usb nic's, or an ethernet crossover cable. Assign unique local IP addresses. Enable in Win+Pause or My Computer, right click → properties. There are remote desktop settings there that you can use.
Or if you really need KVM over USB, NOTECONS01 is good.
Most OS'es support a kickstart file. You start a USB drive with your OS installer, but point to a kickstart file that knows what to install and setup.

I am just using the Microsoft deployment toolkit. SCCM gives the ability to further customize the installation. I have never used SCCM, so I am not sure what it adds the process. I am pretty sure it also manages the configuration post deployment.

So…I was working on a family friends computer and upgrading to an SSD. Which meant shrinking their HDD partition from ~1TB (100GB used) to 240GB (~ssd size). Seems like you have to run gparted first to resize NTFS partition smaller, then do clone.
Anyways, gparted said “running simulation”, and I thought, “by golly do the real thing and quit looking so hung!” so I killed it. Unfortunately, it was actually moving stuff around and changing the partition table already, so now I have a lot more work to do…
Making a complete clone right now using ddrescue.
//Windows live cd chkdsk. Assumes volume is not RAW diskpart list volume chkdsk /f <volume> <volume>: bootrec /fixboot //installs bootloader
Look into NTFS MFT recovery?
sudo parted /dev/sdb resizepart 1 400Mto resize the partition back and then run chkdsk.
PXE, use CloneZilla

Wanted only 1 user logged in at a time, but allow reconnections of same user (wifi and wired). What didn't fix it was “automatic reconnections” and “allow multiple logins?” (which worked, but allowed another user to logon at same time). What fixed it was setting keep-alive interval to 1 minute, which neither keeps the previous session alive nor takes 1 minute. Go figure!

https://wiki.galliumos.org/Firmware (need to set the default mode to legacy)
Great OS, basically as fast as original Chrome OS. An alternative is Gallium OS, full Linux and just as fast.
Summary/details of the wiki steps:
Log in as Guest CTRL+ALT+T , then type in shell for a shell prompt Need to do “sudo su” to get write access.
Overwrite firmware: cd; curl -LO https://mrchromebox.tech/firmware-util.sh && sudo bash firmware-util.sh Use RW_LEGACY firmware
https://wiki.galliumos.org/Installing (ISO or alongside chrome os)
Install Gallium OS (need to run this twice) curl -Os https://chrx.org/go && sh go
There are a few remaining steps:
Also, the username and password for chrx is chrx for both.
To do the auto-login, open a terminal and run “sudo mousepad /etc/lxdm/lxdm.conf” and change
#autologin= to autologin=chrx
How to turn off screensaver password, or just disable screensaver totally? I did it already too…
Will erase boot flags. Tried running a reset of flags based on this, https://www.reddit.com/r/GalliumOS/comments/8m6n7k/how_can_i_keep_my_galliumos_once_the_battery_drain/dzl8lwq/, but didn't work. So just reinstalling Chrome OS so I can run the script to update the flags then reinstall Gallium OS.

Use MakeMKV. Large file sizes (keeps same size as original DVD, so 4-5GB), but keeps all original features and I can always convert it down later.
Windows: Robocopy looks to be the best.
Not that hard to do. Ideally your router should do it, but if not you can do it from the client-end too. Make sure to set gateway as the router and set DNS to be the router as well. Best to set it up with a system where you aren't remotely connected in case it doesn't work.
Rufus looks like a great tool, windows only though.
Her DVD drive broke, which makes this hilariously difficult. dmg2img does not work. I extracted the Mountain Lion dmg from a Mac Store download. Windows will only mount ISO though, so:
TeamViewer looks like a great remote desktop support option! No funky port forwarding, better than Google Chrome Remote Desktop if you want to not get kicked off after 10 minutes of inactivity and to be able to connect unattended. Also has file transfer built in and video recording.
