I'm working on getting Visual Studio 2015 working in automation (bug 1186060) and I'd like a loaner (or 2 or 3 or whatever) so I can work faster (I seem to have a skill for causing Try builds to time out after 3 hours).

I need to test on all of our Windows builder configurations. So I need loaners corresponding to whatever machine configurations that would be. Although I'd settle for a 64-bit Windows on the most modern Windows version available for starters. I may even be able to figure out the rest via Try pushes. I should hopefully not need the loaner(s) for more than 1 week, as I intend to get VS2015 working ASAP.

I've never used a Windows loaner before. Please be gentle if I'm naive as to how things work :)
Email sent to Gregory for further instructions.

Hi Gregory , 

I am going to assign this to you to keep track of the loan. 

When you are finished with the loan forever, please comment stating so here in the bug, and mark the bug as RESOLVED.

By the way, now that this aws instance has been created, starting and stopping it can happen in a flash!
If you are not going to be using this machine for multiple hours, let us know in this bug and we can stop it.

Comment again when you want it started back up.
* For faster turnaround, ping #releng (look for nick with 'buildduty')

The slave that I loan to you is a  windows 2008, if you want to run some tests on other windows 64 platforms I can loan to you a windows 8 or windows 10
I installed some packages that I shouldn't have installed because side-effects from installing them interferes with my testing (even if I uninstall the packages!).

Could you terminate this loaner and make me a new one?
