WinPE PXE boot fails

I am trying to PXE boot Windows. I have a Samba share setup, ISO mounted, looks good on the server side.

The default menu entry is as follows:

LABEL Windows Server 2012 MENU LABEL Windows Server 2012 KERNEL /memdisk INITRD /windows/winpe.iso APPEND iso raw 


I built a WindowsPE image with DISM, base PE files + Dell drivers. I created both a USB drive output and an ISO output. The USB drive I made boots fine. The ISO gives me the following output and then boots the local hard drive.

I have previously successfully executed a WinPE image, but that image didn’t have the drivers I needed. Thus, I think my default is ok. This ISO is about 333 MB, whereas the original was about 1/3rd of that.

But when I attempt to boot my new WinPE ISO, I get the following messages:

And then it boots to local drive, not the desired ISO.

Powell Manager synchronization fails

I am currently setting up my site collection structure and keep getting an error when trying to synchronize my changes from Powell Manager to SharePoint.

Specifically, I had set up and synchronized a specific department as a subsite, and added a nested subsite inside of the department. I then navigated to Powell Manager > Deployment > Site Collection Structure to add my subsite to the department’s navigation, and was able to add a link with the following explicit data:

  • Title: Internal
  • Url:

However, trying to link to my actual subsite kept on failing, using this data, and, as before, choosing the ‘Erase’ function when synchronizing:

  • Title: Internal
  • Url:

The error message is pretty confusing, as it does not refer to the actual subsite or navigation, but only mentions the overall containing web, which does not differ from the working example:

Error Code : 9Cannot contact site at the specified URL There is no Web named “/sites/intranet-test/about/departments/_vti_bin/sites.asmx”.

Can we stop Adobe Acrobat Pro from prompting for password when search fails?

I have a secured pdf document, password protected.

I can ctrl+f search for key terms.

If I search a key term and it fails immediately, it prompts to enter password for premision. I’m not trying to edit it, just to search. Ideally it’ll just fail, and not pop a dialog box.

Is it possible to stop it from prompting for password?

Cron fails because update folder does not exist

I am trying to setup cron for a magento 2 installation made through composer.

I have tried to manually add the following to my crontab:

* * * * * www-data php /path/to/m2/bin/magento cron:run | grep -v "Ran jobs by schedule" >> /path/to/m2/var/log/magento.cron.log * * * * * www-data php /path/to/m2/update/cron.php >> /path/to/m2/var/log/update.cron.log * * * * * www-data php /path/to/m2/bin/magento setup:cron:run >> /path/to/m2/var/log/setup.cron.log 

If I then check the /path/to/m2/var/log/update.cron.log I can see the following message:

Could not open input file: /path/to/m2/update/cron.php

Obviously, because the folder /path/to/m2/update does not exist.

I am not sure why the folder and cron.php file is missing. Is there some bin/magento command that I have missed?
