 From terminal, diskutil list, determine the disk you want. sudo diskutil umount the disk, or use the disk utility gui to do so (not eject, unmount!). Then for example sudo dd if=~/Downloads/CentOS-7-x86_64-Everything-1503-01.iso of=/dev/disk1 bs=1m

Or even better... Use UNETBOOTIN

Windows does not recognize network as 'WORK'

Do you have the problem that after every reboot Windows (7) does not seem to recognize the network and it keeps setting it to Public? Then add this to the registry to tell it that all networks are considered Private (WORK) - less secure but for machines in the office not a problem I'd say.

So you are wondering about the wonky way Nuke loads in Alexa material. I must say, I either do not fully understand how Nuke does XXX - > Linear conversions or some are conversions are buggy/not consistent. To clarify this - for example sRGB to LIN and Rec709 to LIN do a colorspace, whitepoint and primaries conversion where if you select Alexa in your Read nodes it will only do a colorspace conversion, hence the reason it all looks pale as hell. Read on for the solution...

To install The Foundry NUKE on all your machines on the windows farm/workstations you can download the MS tool PSEXEC (see Links section) and use this from the command-line. Mind the CASES. Error code 0 is the message for a clean install. 

"psexec \\MACHINE -u USERNAME -p PASSWORD \\SERVER\pipeline\software\nuke\Nuke9.0v2-win-x86-release-64.exe /verysilent"

You might want to set a shared config directory by setting an environment variable like this:

setx /m NUKE_PATH "N:\pipeline\nuke
 
All your gizmos, python and shizzle will be pointed there.
You can set all this in a batch file. Read on for an example batchfile which doesn't store the password inside the batchfile (for improved security). 

If you don't want these 10 icons The Foundry installs on your desktop add this parameter /MERGETASKS="!desktopicon"

 Maya is like an ancient, ancient, and dumb program... When you remove a monitor or change their positions your floating windows might very well disappear... The solution, navigate here: C:\Users\USER\Documents\maya\2014-x64\prefs or whatever is appropriate and delete windowPrefs.mel.
