I just ordered an i7-4770 box (no k, I'm not going to OC). GTX 760 eVga superclock, 16 gb RAM, dual 128 gb SSD in RAID 1, bluray burner. Its gonna scream. Just need to get an aftermarket cpu hsf, since its a silent case and PS and only has one front and one rear 120 mm fan.

My trusty old e4600 box is getting long in the tooth. Time to part it out.

I like potatoes.

I usually peel their skin, cut them up into pieces and then fry them until golden brown.

Then I dip them in chili sauce and bite them, chewing them until they are soft and mashed, then swallow them.

Lastly, I will wait for them to become feces.

I'm not psychotic, but that's what I usually do to potatoes.

why you no install ubuntu on your PC then its atlest way powerful then android on PC. it seems really odd how people get excited to underutilize the PC with android thats a joke . or someone really got pumped to port android on it. only good thing i see here is. developers can run their apps to test, they gonne run at blazing speed on PC but you wont get any idea about actuall phones.

How can I get the ISO file? I'm descompacting the RAR file but can't find the ISO one.

posted on 05 Jul 2013, 15:50 1

49. Pancoon (Posts: 42; Member since: 05 Jul 2013)


For downloading the ISO folder, try using Chrome. Internet Explorer likes to put all files into a RAR and i have had many problems with it. Chrome should just download the strait ISO file.

No problem :)

If that doesn't work i made an additional post which is Number 55 you should look at. Tell me if Chrome makes a difference.

I've forgotten that don't have chrome in my pc since last format. But I do have Opera, gonna try it before download chrome again, wich I stoped to use exactly because poor download features and management.

If anything goes right or wrong, I let you know!!!

How do you guys navigate with it? I had to enable the 'show pointer location' in the developer settings and then click and move around my mouse just to know where it is. And also, how do you get it to connect to the network? Sorry, not used to Virtual Machines :P

51. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4023; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)


To navigate, click "Machine" in the menu bar and click "Disable Mouse Integration" not sure about how to connect to the network though. I want to know how you got past the Choose your Language screen, I click English (U.S) and I get an infinite loading bar.

ok, thanks. managed to get the mouse in the VM with that method.. So, have you figured out how to get network connection? The screenshot in this news seems like it's connected to the network..

Nope, haven't found a way yet. Seems kind of useless without a connection.
