    Google Drive

    VERY URGENT! In 2018, some month ago, I note that Google Drive refuses to work with Windows XP. Is it possible to make GoogleDrive work again with Windows XP? Any clues or tricks?

    Firefox 50.1.0 x64?

    In Windows XP/2003 x64 it is possible to make working these builds of mozilla-family browsers: Mozilla Seamonkey 2.43 (x64) ( search for seamonkey-2.43.en-US.win64.installer.exe ) Mozilla Firefox 46 (x64) ( official https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/46.0/ ) You need some modifications: 1) Don't run installer (it requires Windows 7), extract browser files manually - mostly they are in zip format. 2) Change OS version/Subsystem version of seamonkey.exe/firefox.exe to 5.1 This method could be used with other versions.

    Antivirus in 2015 for vanilla W2k?

    In Windows 2000 SP4 (and XP/2003 ) I use Symantec Antivirus Corporate Edtition 10.1.9 (Client). However it does not autoupdate virus definitions so I download them sheduled from x86 version: ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/english_us_canada/antivirus_definitions/norton_antivirus/rapidrelease/symrapidreleasedefscore15-i64.exe x64 version: ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/english_us_canada/antivirus_definitions/norton_antivirus/rapidrelease/symrapidreleasedefscore15-i32.exe

    Triple booting Windows NT 4, 98 and 2000.

    I insert my 5 cents: since ~Pentium 4 class computers I never used CD- or FLOPPY-based installation type on either NT 4.0 Workstation/Server or TerminalServer. I use only cloning from installation made in virtual environment (qemu, virtualbox, vpc, bochs etc. ). Because when I use "normal" installation process with modern hardware in ~100% cases it hangs on textmode (i.e. blue-screen ) setup stage. I think it is because modern CPUs are too fast and Windows NT setup environment is not aware of it. Also read this "Windows NT 4.0 Large HDD Information" http://nt4ref.zcm.com.au/bigdisk.htm I. e. generic atapi.sys driver (even from NT 4 ServicePack6a) does not support UDMA transfer modes and LBA48! I have no other option to use UNIATA driver instead of ATAPI.SYS, however it is not guaranteed that such setup works. I used modified installation CD for NT4 system. Cloning also has some good drawbacks: 1. I could install NT in partition larger than 7.8 Gb (you need ntldr, ntdetect.com from windows 2000 or later) 2. I could install NT onto FAT32 partition (you need ntldr, ntdetect.com from windows 2000 or later, installed read/write fat32.sys) 3. I could install NT after other OS were installed (XP, 98 etc.) 4. With some caution I could install NT on the same disk when other OS were installed (NT, XP, 98 etc.) since NT contains user profiles inside WINNT/WTSRV directory So you need extract two folders ("Program Files" and "WINNT") from cloned hdd image into root folder of your disk drive that you reserved for NT4 and made a correct boot.ini entry, like this: [operation systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WTSRV="Windows NT Workstation Version 4.00" /noserialmice If you wish to correct drive letters order you can do it inside NT4.0 AdministativeTools/DiskAdministrator start menu entry. Cloning also possible for Windows 95/98/Me and NT 3.51.

    Windows 2000 on Haswell?

    Find some important stuff: when in Windows 2000/XP/2003 you are using /3GB switch ( http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb124810(v=exchg.65).aspx ) in boot.ini - Intel's HD Graphics Drivers stops working. Hope this helps.
  12. And this one from NT4 Workstation with Intel DG33FB + Core2Duo 3.16GHz:
  13. Installing Windows NT from CD, HDD or floppies as usual on modern hardware (I mean Pentium4-based and later PCs) it is a difficult task due to installer incompatibility with faster/newer hardware & CPUs. That doesnt mean that Windows NT cannot RUN on such hardware. You CAN install Windows NT in virtialization software (QEMU, VirtualBox, VmWare, VirtualPC, Bochs ...) and then copy intalled OS image on "real" PC harddrive. 1) Install base NT4 system in virtual environment. 2) Apply Service Pack 6a & Post-Service Pack 6a SRP. 3) Install VBEMP (video) and Uniata (EIDE-SATA-ATAPI) drivers 4) Clone this system from virtual environment to real hardware see http://bearwindows.zcm.com.au/winnt4.htm As a proof that NT4 works on modern hardware I provide some screenshots from Supermicro X8DT6 + Xeon 2.93 GHz:
