Well, without exercise 2 on what was presumable page 108, you won't have done that and won't know how to!

Creating a Striped Volume with Partity (RAID-5)

Windows 7 does not support creating a RAID-5 software RAID. I just tried it myself and this options is greyed out. After some research I found a Blog Post from Dale Qiao MSFT who confirmend with the product team, that only Windows 2000 Server, Windows 2000 Advanced Server, Windows 2000 Datacenter Server, Windows Server 2003 or Windows Server 2008 Operating Systems support RAID-5 software RAIDs. You can find the post as a reference here: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/w7itproinstall/thread/a1851e42-c705-4558-920c-30ba7c6cf080 Interesting, that none of the authors has tested this...

A computer can't be its own default gateway. By convention, the router in a subnet typically has the IP address x.y.z.1 "For example, if you want to configure the Local Area Connection interface with an IPv4 address 10.0.0.11, a subnet mask 255.255.255.0, and a default gateway 10.0.0.11, you enter the following command: netsh interface ipv4 set address "local area connection" static 10.0.0.11 255.255.255.0 10.0.0.11" Should be: "For example, if you want to configure the Local Area Connection interface with an IPv4 address 10.0.0.11, a subnet mask 255.255.255.0, and a default gateway 10.0.0.1, you enter the following command: netsh interface ipv4 set address "local area connection" static 10.0.0.11 255.255.255.0 10.0.0.1" The computer could be configured to use itself as a DNS server, but it's more likely that you'd want the default gateway (e.g. a router) to be the DNS server too. "If you also wanted to set the DNS server address as 10.0.0.11, you enter the following command: netsh interface ipv4 set dnsservers "local area connection" static 10.0.0.11" Should be: "If you also wanted to set the DNS server address as 10.0.0.1, you enter the following command: netsh interface ipv4 set dnsservers "local area connection" static 10.0.0.1"

The sixth paragraph lists some subnet masks, but they are inaccurate. "You will learn why 255.255.255.128, 255.255.225.0, 225.255.254.0, and 255.255.252.0 are valid subnet masks, whereas 255.255.253.0 is not." There seems to be a typo in this phrase, since 255.255.225.0 can not be a valid subnet mask. Subnet masks consist of contiguous bits so if this was just a typo it should either be 255.255.224.0 (/19) or a 255.255.255.0 (/24) The next subnet listed is also invalid: 225.255.254.0 which should probably be 255.255.254.0 Again, probably a typo...

In each example, the second IPv6 address is wrong. The first IPv6 address in each example starts with "2001::ce49:7601". That means that "ce49:7601" is the hex version of the Teredo server's public IPv4 address, i.e. 206.73.118.1. If all the machines use the same Teredo server, all of their Teredo addresses should begin with the same 64 bits. Instead, the second IPv6 address in each example uses a private IPv4 address; even if they deliberately used a different server, nobody else on the internet would be able to route to it! * Headquarters: "2001::0a0a:64fe" This corresponds to 10.10.100.254 * Branch 1: "2001::0a0a:0afe" This corresponds to 10.10.10.254 * Branch 2: "2001::0a0a:14fe" This corresponds to 10.10.20.254 * Branch 3: "2001::0a0a:1efe" This corresponds to 10.10.30.254 Also, those private addresses don't correspond to any of the private networks listed on page 302. Finally, the first IPv6 address for each branch office shouldn't have a space after the :: So, the bullet points should be: * Headquarters: 2001::ce49:7601:e866:efff:f5ff:9bfe through 2001::ce49:7601:e866:efff: f5ff:9b01 * Branch 1: 2001::ce49:7601:e866:efff:f5ff:fffe through 2001::ce49:7601:e866:efff: f5ff:ff01 * Branch 2: 2001::ce49:7601:e866:efff:f5ff:f5fe through 2001::ce49:7601:e866:efff:f5ff:f501 * Branch 3: 2001::ce49:7601:e866:efff:f5ff:ebfe through 2001::ce49:7601:e866:efff:f5ff:eb01

I can't confirm if this is a difference from RTM to SP1, but the book clearly states and repeats the statement that "Debugging Mode" gets you into Windows PE and then the Recovery Environment (RE), but this is not accurate.
