OS Technical Support


Part One


You have recently started in a new technical support role within the IT department of a major manufacturing organization. Your first support call is from a user who is using a Windows® XP operating system and has encountered stability problems. Discuss the process you would undertake to identify the problem and the tools that have been provided with the operating system you would use to do so.


Part Two


Your next call is from a user whose Windows Vista® machine will not boot. Outline the steps that you would undertake to identify the source of the user’s problem and the tools provided in the Windows Vista® machine that might be useful in your analysis.


Part Three


It is clear that the organization has not adopted an operating system standard and as a result, there are numerous products and versions in use across the whole company. Consider the operating systems that were introduced in the text and discuss which of those you would recommend and why. Which of them would you recommend replacing if they were currently in use within your organization?
