The resource you are looking for has been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable. RRS feed

  • Question

  • For the past 2 days, I've tried to leave Site Feedback, but all I get is this:
    "The resource you are looking for has been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable."

    So I'm leaving my feedback here. Please forgive me and help if you can.

    =====

    On this page:
    https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windows/en-US/5951f3a4-5077-420b-9b2c-cdbca1b98310/re-updating-windows-what-does-quotmigratequot-mean?forum=win10itprosetup
    I asked a simple question: "What does 'migrate' mean?"

    Regarding the "Answer":
    Carey Frisch marked an off-topic response as the answer. It's off-topic. Did I ask "How do I install Windows?" No. I asked "What does 'migrate' mean?" All responses were off-topic. I deleted all my responses.

    Regarding the thread:
    Kindly remove the thread starter. I don't want my name associated with that polluted thread.

    =====

    Again, I reget posting like this, and I apologize for doing it, but I see no alternative.

    Warm Regards,
    Mark.

  • Since you asked the question, you can unmark any reply that has been marked as answer or proposed answer. But even then, with no replies marked as answer or proposed answer, I don't believe you can delete the thread. If this what you want, email fissues [at] Microsoft [dot] com, with a link to the thread and your request. The forum admins at that email can delete the thread.

    Hi Richard,

    Apparently, that feature has been disabled (I assume by Carey Frisch). I am powerless.

  • Yes, I see now the thread is locked. When it is unlocked you should be able to unmark answers and proposed answers. Then see if you get the option (at the top) to delete the thread. I not, you can email:

    Hmmm... That's odd. It doesn't show "Locked" to me.

    Thanks, Richard.

    You know, I try to make my posts specific and terse (but not cryptic). I really work at it. I edit them intently (and brutally) and delete words more than I add words.

    Look for the padlock symbol on original post.

    Thanks again, Dave. I guess I'm too used to 'answers.microsoft.com'. I was looking for the words "This thread has been locked." My bad.

    PS: You know, I'm beginning to hate icons.

  • @Dave @Richard,

    While I have your 'eyes', may I ask a somewhat off-topic question?

    Do either of you gentlemen know of a Microsoft Glossary that defines the terms "migrate" & "reflect" as those words are used in setup logs?

    Monday, December 10, 2018 11:13 PM
  • I suspect those are vague and would depend on context.

  • I suspect those are vague and would depend on context.

    I suspect that "reflect" is an ad hoc term, but "Migration" (aka "MIG") is an actual logging component (%SYSTEMDRIVE%\$WINDOWS.~BT\Sources\mighost.exe) that impacts phases: onerror presysprep postsysprep preoobe postoobe & rollback.

    Okay, how about a technical architecture specification controlling update and specifying the software state machine phases? That would probably do. I've tried to infer the meaning based on identifying the various device driver versions that are "installed" v. "migrated"  (by their sources & destinations), but it is driving me nuts.

  • Maybe ask here about this.

    https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsdesktop/en-US/home?category=windowsdesktopdev

     or in the windows setup / deployment forums.

    I looked there (via Forums [ view all ]). Wow! Probably a hundred categories and hundreds of forums, and I looked into every one. But none mention either "setup" or "deployment" (or even anything close).

    ... or in the windows setup / deployment forums.

    Got any URLs for those? I couldn't find them in 'social.microsoft.com'. Thanks!

  • msdn branding is development related, technet branding is IT pro related, there some crossover between the two. Those are the main ones but there are a number of other specialized / focused "brandings" as well.
