EDIT: the url below no longer works. The user must have removed the video from vimeo. Unfortunately I can't remember who 'BC' is (shoulda been bleeping computer). If I find a worthy video to update this post, I will edit again.

This post is on a live tutorial video with privacy tips. Great video by BC on essential installation steps for Windows 7, . Turn up the sound. Here, emphasis is security and privacy on bare-metal install before you even install network drivers. So before connecting with MSFT. Notice carefully how he turns off all the phoning home features, esp. Windows Updates etc. This is vital for protecting your computer from some later slipped-in MSFT telemetry.

You can always seek updates to Window 7 manually, but if you follow the video steps, MSFT will not be contacting your machine (you'd have to re-enable services and GPO settings, or bypass them on an ad hoc basis, at your own end). So you regain control of your own machine. :thumbup:

So you can also see step by step, how to create a Virtual Box and in it, to install Win7.

Now, whatever other OS you want to install, will be very similar.

for the seven forums steps for MBR restoration.

to create the Recovery Partition.

Doesn't seem as though you can make the recovery partition bootable, . It's designed to work with the MBR, hence the need to restore the MBR to use the recovery partition.

for MSFT's own steps (not very helpful, but not useless).

How-to-Geek's instructions include screenshots, .

Just installed Windows 8 original release in Parallels Desktop 9 on OS X Snow Leopard. I have found the performance of Windows 8 in a virtual environment to be better than Windows 7.

The original release of Windows 8 is a frankenstein of an operating system but its perfect inside a virtual environment.

Would that be due to Win8 being less graphic-intensive?

I dont know anything about computers. What I want is to use my computer without anyone spying, or imposing anything, like the updates to make windows 7 more like windows 10 (having looked around it doesnt seem entirely clear if windows 7 originally "phoned home". does it?). Will installing windows 7 in a "virtual box" do this for me? Will I be able to use my computer as if it is a normal installation?

sorry if im being stupid. thank you for your help

forgot my password so I had to register a new account
