Windows 10 Professional installation

So.. have you finished downloading your copy of Windows 10? How many movies and popcorn did you managed to finish? He…he..he…. 🙂
If you’re reading this, it means that you probably have downloaded the ISO version of the installer, just like me. The advantage of downloading the ISO is that you can burn it into a DVD and keep it for future use, just in case you want to reinstall it some other time (within the 1 year period). If you have few more computer, you can use the DVD to install it on other computers. So, no need to wait for the download again. Save time huh..? Another option to download is to a USB drive where it will save into a bootable thumbdrive and use it to install on a computer which don’t have an optical drive.

Recently we had an issue with our Hyper-V clusters which resulted in some of our VM server corrupted. Luckily there was a backup. If not.. somebody should start updating their CV’s… 🙂

So, one of the affected servers was our Primavera server. So we had to restore it back from backup, the whole VM, and restore back the SQL database.

After restoring the Server and Database, you’ll notice that the SQL services could not be started. So, what you should do is to install or remove your database instance from the Add/Remove Programs and reinstall/recreate the SQL instance.

When recreating the SQL instance, you can use back your previous instance to save you the trouble of going to each Primavera user to repointing the database. I’ve learned it “the hard way”. So, after you read this, it will save you time if you have so many users.
