Recently, one of my colleague wanted to call an auto-implemented property setter in a class' constructor.
I do not think this is a good idea as we don't know how the class may evolve in the future.
In this post, I will show some of possible evolutions that make me think that we should not use auto-implemented properties in a class' constructor, but rather use a classical property and thus the member variable. [Plus]

I have bought recently a new laptop, a DELL Inspiron 1720. Quite a nice laptop in fact. The only thing is that I bought with it Windows Vista Professional and that I was not completely ready for the change. Anyway, note that DELL will stop its support of Windows XP very soon, in June I think. Anyway, the point is that I wanted to re-install Windows XP on it. No problem ! Let's go for it !

I will show in this post how we can do that when your computer has SATA Hard Drive that is not recongnized by the default Windows XP installation CD. I will show how to use NLite to include both additional drivers in the installation CD (AHCI driver to recognize SATA drives) and also additional service pack.

I will also explain how to reinstall DELL Media Direct. [Plus]
