...thereby proving that a power supply doesn't constantly draw its max load. Not sure why I was downvoted for providing anecdotal evidence directly answering the question.

Basically, I am not finding a 630 event ID in either log. How would I find out what event I should be looking for? I'm a newbie when it comes to querying Active Directory events.

If it's a Contact instead of a User, would it have a different error code?

comment Problems cloning a hard drive
If I have to resize the partition using gparted, why wouldn't I just use gparted to also copy the partition? That's what I ended up doing, and why I accepted the other answer.

in addition to setting a flag on the partition to boot, I also had to run Windows Repair on the Vista setup disk, probably because I forgot to uncheck the "round to cylinders" checkbox. Ah well, it all worked in the end.

comment Problems cloning a hard drive
tried using -k1, create partition table proportionally. process started, error message saying "cannot restore image from to smaller disk", but then continued to start to copy. I quit the process before anything happened, but I'm not sure if the image error applies to me since I'm doing a disk copy. I'm thinking Clonezilla will not work unless I first use gparted or something to resize my current partition down to under 200 GB. Any thoughts?

Halfway through the Clonezilla process, I get this message: ATTENTION ... (2) Clonezilla will not restre an image from a large disk (partition) to a smaller disk (partition). However, it can restore an image froma small disk (partition) to a larger disk (partition). (3) If you do NOT want Clonezilla to create a partition table, check -k: ... I guess now I need to research partition tables to see if reusing the partition table from the larger disk would be bad...

comment Problems cloning a hard drive
looks like it would work, but I'd love to see a bit more instructions with it... the screenshots are the closest I could find so far, and they didn't go into disk cloning. Ie - will it support going to a smaller disk? Will it work with the disk connected via USB?

Is IPCop something that runs on a machine sitting between the router and the cable modem? If so, what OS should I run? How easy is it to set up?
