  • Boot into SD?

    This might be a dumb question, and I promise I did search... can you set SD as your system shell so you can boot directly into it when cold-booting? CF has it in it's General Options, but I'm guessing with SD it's either a command line switch, or, not possible?

    I asked Chuck about this once but was informed that it wouldn't be advised.

    I'll see if I can get him to chime in here.

      You can, but some video cards have problems doing Direct3D before explorer has started.

        If Chuck advises against it, I won't beat the subject too much.

        I do wonder though, doesn't the G4 sold by the store boot directly into Streetdeck? Or is that only out of Standby/Hibernate?

          My video card is a 2007 model. Perhaps it's new enough that it will work? Or is it based on manufacturer.

            Chuck - do you happen to have any information about which cards might not handle this well?

              well I'm using a GMA950, and I'm attempting this, if I get it working I'll post how I did and you can try it.

                  I haven't played around with it myself. Theres probably an easy work around even if you do have issues, its just not something we've tried real hard to get working yet.

                      I have tried changing the windows shell to Streetdeck, but I can't get it to attempt to open at all. When I set the shell to Streetdeck, nothing opens when windows starts. I can open the task manager, and launch streetdeck before explorer is opened to I'm guessing this isn't an issue with the video card. I've tried changing the shell in both the registry and the administrative templates options, and neither methods have even tried to start Streetdeck. I could run Centrafuse as the shell flawlessly BTW.

                      Any suggestions?
