The show computer running the Tom Foolery Interface is running Windows 10.
There are 2 users on the system:
- gktw-user : This is the default user for the system that will be auto logged in once the system is started. The application is contained in the startup folder and will start once the system is started. The password for the user is gktwtom123.
- gktw-admin : This is the admin user for the system. Since the startup folder is common to both the users, the application will start on login, but can be exited using keyboard shortcuts. The password for the user is gktwtom456.
The computer originally plugged in was GKTW-TOM-01.
We have also provided a backup PC, GKTW-TOM-02. This should be an easy hotswap for the system.
Both computers have 7th generation i7 processors, 16GB RAM and a 1TB M.2 SSD.
In case, both the PCs fail, we have also provided a hard disk with a system image and a boot media.
Steps to restore system image:
- Open the BIOS settings on the new system and change the BIOS settings from UEFI to Legacy. (Very Important)
- With the computer turned off, insert the USB key with the AOMEI Backupper software installed, and the external hard drive with the captured system image. Looking at the column of USB ports on the front panel and going top to bottom and listing each as 1-4, insert the usb key into 3, and the external hdd into 4. If you don’t, when you try to boot to a external usb device, it’ll try to boot off of the external hard drive, and will fail.
- Start the system and press F12 to enter the boot menu and choose to boot off of the USB key.
- Once the backupper program loads, go to Restore.
- Select the backup once it loads into the wizard and the Next button will light orange, click Next.
- Next will be selecting the destination of the image we’re restoring. We’ll want to pick the internal hard drive in the computer. The other disks listed will be the external hard drive, and the usb key that’s running the backup software, be careful not to pick either of these. With the proper hard drive selected, click Next, and click Yes to the following popup.
- The operation summary will be displayed, showing you what you’ve set up. Oce you click Start Restore, you’ll be unable to go back, so make sure everything is correct. Once you’re ready, hit Start Restore.
- Once the operation finishes, shut down the computer, remove the usb and the external hard drive, and then start the computer again.
