    Hello there,

    I'm running Windows 7 32-bits in a piece of s**t called Netbook Intel Atom N445 @1.6G Hz, this sucks right?

    Well here it goes.

    I'm trying to share a folder, it's okay. but Windows must be connected to LAN in order to a SMB/CIFS client to connect/access the share. so i must restart my netbook each time it's not connect to LAN when booting to be able to share that damn folder.

    Do any of you guyz know a hotfix/solution for me:(?

    is that normal to windows boot slowly after stalling ~160 updates from windows update applet?

    Thank you for your attention! :)

    I think your netbook cant handle windows 7 ultimate 32bit. Try using windows 7 starter.

    hello mates

    orinaly this netbook came with Windows 7 Starter, than i screwed and did a upgrade to Ultimate Edition. guess it's not Netbook's fault. that won't happen with Windows 10 tech preview.

    the client is a Unix CIFS/SMB client

    The problem is that the CPU is just 1 single core even with 64bit instruction set. It needs to have special drivers installed which are normally not part of Windows 7. That ISO is wrote above, has such drivers installed too and more. Had other things removed which makes problems on Netbooks with Single Core!

    Sounds like that old 'link down' problem. Every connection is lost when the NIC is not plugged in/WiFi not logged in, even localhost. To keep the link up when not connected to LAN you can install the MS Loopback adapter.
