During and after the install, I noticed several differences between my live-media experience and the install experience. MY POST IS NOT ABOUT THE DIFFERENCE DETAILS BUT THE EXPERIENCE IN GENERAL.
I can explain some of the differences as follows:
- Code: Select all
A live-media edition has a requirement to boot and run regardless of the available hardware.
An install will inspect that actual hardware, configure to use it, and load the corresponding software.
A live-media edition's applications will run against the run-regardless hardware and drivers and parts.
An install edition's applications will run against the actual hardware and drivers and parts.
By themselves, these two distinctions can result in major changes in how things look.
Now my question:
How are we supposed to test a workstation using a live-media edition when so much of what is under the covers is likely to be different after a full install against the same workstation?
Thanks in advance,
