  • Announcing “BootAble” – GRC's New Boot-Testing Freeware
    Please see the BootAble page at GRC for the whole story.
  • BootAble – FreeDOS boot testing freeware

    To obtain direct, low-level access to a system's mass storage drives, SpinRite runs under a GRC-customized version of FreeDOS which has been modified to add compatibility with all file systems. In order to run SpinRite it must first be possible to boot FreeDOS.

    GRC's “BootAble” freeware allows anyone to easily create BIOS-bootable media in order to workout and confirm the details of getting a machine to boot FreeDOS through a BIOS. Once the means of doing that has been determined, the media created by SpinRite can be booted and run in the same way.

    The participants here, who have taken the time to share their knowledge and experience, their successes and some frustrations with booting their computers into FreeDOS, have created a valuable knowledgebase which will benefit everyone who follows.

    You may click on the image to the right to obtain your own copy of BootAble. Then use the knowledge and experience documented here to boot your computer(s) into FreeDOS. And please do not hesitate to ask questions – nowhere else can better answers be found.

Copied my WordPress to another server that don't use as much power. Change the URL name too.

Installed SQRL plugin and I can't log in to it. It says "The site is not allowing new registrations and your SQRL identity is not associated with any account."

How can I fix this?

logged on to phpmyadmin and searched for sqrl and found 3 big like random numbers in wp_usermeta copy and deleted each on 1 at a time and tested logging in my WordPress but all 3 times got the same error.

I guess it's some place in the database?

If you have changed the URL, you will have a different SQRL identity on the new site.

In simple terms, SQRL takes the website URL, manipulates it with your SQRL secret data, and produces an answer. This answer is stored in the site as your SQRL ID.

Depending which SQRL server code you are using, there may be other places where SQRL login is set in the user record on the site. There may be a flag to reset for example to allow you to associate a new SQRL ID with your login.
