I am not able to go between the two operating systems. I've tried going through the system advanced settings to set Windows 7 as the default but it is not party of the drop down list of operating systems? Am I missing something?






What you have there is a Windows 7 license with Windows XP downgrade rights. That means you can run Windows XP, and when you are ready to upgrade to Windows 7, no need to buy a new license. But you can't use both at the same time!

Hi! I have a NAS Lenovoez and I'm experiencing problems when try to backup my gopro hero 5 black in the usb port. The Lenovoez detects the gopro camera immediately according to the web manager application, the camera detects too the usb port connection. Lenovoez begins to backup some photos but it seems to be stopped a few minutes later. I've checked the log events but nothing appeared. 


The NAS has the latest firmware version. 


Could you help me please?
