A generalist. Or, better put, jack of all trades, master of none.

I think this is DBA territory, serverfault material.

comment Is AMD Turion™ 64 X2 really 64 bit?
I'd recommend you asking a different question about Vista 64 failing to install with further detail, such as the error message. I'd also recommend you to accept SZayat's answer, because that was the asked question.

Thanks John, no definitive resolution yet, I just unjoined and rejoined the domain. Will do further research for a definitive solution (I'm not keen on reinstalling all machines).

This is not strictly a security tool, its use is much broader (not to say that the answer is irrelevant or inadequate)

I've done a cursory google search but haven't found exactly what the problem is (ie, what is an AD SID, why can't it be regenerated, and so on). Have you got some extra resources about that? Also, can you prepare such a clone manually?

@Graeme: He's saying that the original message I put in my comment is not the exact message Windows shows

Yes, I did do that, but as I say in the update I had already parted and rejoined the domain. I haven't read the articles in the solution yet though.

"The current time on the computer and the current time on the network are different", but, as said, it doesn't normally occur (only when the clocks drift too much)

Nope, that's not it. If I change the time even farther away I get a "the time here and time on the network are different" error. I get a "the system could not log you on". I do have clock drift due to not yet researched issues on our VMWare setup though
