Windows 10 Download Tool (iso) Error 0x800704DD – 0x90016

April 11, 2016 Leave a comment

I was getting ready to use the Windows 10 Download Tool to create an ISO to upgrade my old HP Laptop (DV9543CL).  I downloaded the tool and ran.  However I kept getting the following error when tryting to use.

w10 tool error on dv9543cl

I rebooted several times.

I try to run with elevated permissions (run as Administrator).

Nothing was working.

I finally changed my user account permissions to local admin and that resolved.  Sigh…

The new Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book Stylus

October 26, 2015 Leave a comment

The new Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book Stylus that was just released.  I just got mine in the mail today.

IMG_2010

The Stylus is also backward compatible with the Surface Pro 3 and the Surface 3, which is great news since this is what I am currently using.

New with this Stylus is a package of different tips.  The tips provide different friction on the glass.

TIPS
2H – Very Low Friction
H – Low Friction
HB – Medium Friction
B – High Friction

IMG_2013

The default tip in the stylus is the HB version.

The new Surface Stylus is about 1/2” longer than the previous pen and in my opinion it seems to be more weight distributed.  Comparison of the SP3 and SP4 Stylus.

No buttons on the new Stylus.  There is a button bar on the flat side of the Stylus that now controls the right click feature.  I kind of like the flat surface of the Stylus for my finger.  It feels more ergonomic.

Be careful trying to remove the cap.  IT IS NOT A SCREW CAP like the previous version.  It is a guided notch.  It turns a quarter turn and pulls off.  I bet there will be a handful of calls to Microsoft support from people breaking them before they are ever used.  Ouch…

I actually read the user guide with this pen, after almost breaking mine.
