  1. In the past when I was running Siemens-Nixdorf i486/100 & Win95OSR2 I had similar issue with the BIOS HDD size limitation.Then I disabled the detection on that IDE channel completely and windows during bootup detect the drive (<137GB) and I was able to use it.

    Retro upgrade from K6-III to K6-III+

    The official MoBo manual doesn't tell all the secrets.I tested all combinations and the lowest volatge I can get is 2.0V. To get 450Mhz is fine for me,but not with less CPU power that I had before,which disappoints me. I have a revision v2.3, the board I have fixed with newer and stronger FET's to handle newer CPU's.Interesting is, that there are other types like TX97-E which supports also 83Mhz FSB, look similar like T97-X but on T97-X that FSB combination doesn't work. Dunno why Asus didn't impletent it to the T97-X which seemed was the last in their series with Triton II chipset.
  3. Hi everyone, this thread is a little bit retro, but I can't figure out where is the problem. I recently run my older PC with ASUS TX-97-X which has patched BIOS to support AMD K6 CPU's. Most of the time I run a K6-III 400 clocked @ 412Mhz (5.5x75).Somehow this one didn't run stable at 450.Half year ago I got a few AMD K6-III+ 400. When I install this CPU, I clocked it to 450 (6x75), runs stable, but when tested quickly in MPXPLAY, the CPU load is about 2-3% higher then I had with K6-III which was clocked even lower ! The tools that runs under DOS to get max from this CPU I run all the time, but what could be the problem? The stepping of the CPU or the PowerNow! feature is throttling the performance?

    Retro upgrade from K6-III to K6-III+

    Sure, I had a long chat with Jan about the patching and had a last custom patch installed.
  5. Hi everyone, just one to ask, what is the execution order in registry setting HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run ? Is it exactly as it is listed in registry , that means alphabeticly sorted? I was dealing with curious thing that my QuickLaunch 95 tool under Win95OSR2 causes the Explorer.exe to crash after bootup. I created in the registry new text variable and moved QuickLaunch95 execution at the end of the list and it worked fine now. Mateus
  6. Hi everyone, for a longer time I run a GF4 MX440 PCI on my Win95OSR2 with drivers 41.09.I would like to upgrade, but which driver version to choose? I red somewhere, that in some later versions were bugs. Anyone have experience with these?

    Retro upgrade from K6-III to K6-III+

    I have tried once only to test if the mobo will bootup with K6-III+, then I set it to 6.0x.The previous K6-III was AMD-K6-III/400AFR.Now the AMD K6-IIIE+ 400 - K6-III+/400ATZ. Seems you are right about the FSB as I checked both CPU's.On both the 75Mhz remained in my setup.
  8. I had also the idea to just empty the key and correct the order, but that would be a mess when searching for something.Since I can't rename the values I rather delete it all and then modify it like your example 1,2,3,4 and so on.
  9. That OOLAUNCHER look nice but only for XP.So for my Win9x I'll do the execution order the oldschool way then, export, delete entry, modify order in the reg file and import again. Thanks for the help guys !
  10. Thanks for the tip, very usefull info ! It is as I expected, exucuted in alphabetic order.

    Running 3TB drive on XP over USB Issue

    In this case the limitation should be max 16T HDD. Gotta buy that stuff from WD and test it
  12. Hi everyone, does anybody have experience when running a 3TB 3.5" in a enclousure over USB on WinXP? I tried to combine a Paragon GPT Loader and a drive enclousure from Akitio, which they claim that it supports drives from 80GB-3TB, but even now it's reported by GPT Loader,that the disk is only in 2TB in size. Before I had an enclousure from I-tec and the result was same,but as I beleived,it was caused by it's only 2TB drive support. Any idea? Greets Comos

    Running 3TB drive on XP over USB Issue

    Elaborate, please. I went to WD's site and couldn't find anything about it (then again, it can be just a trivial case of bad Google-Fu, of course). Hi Den, sure I will elaborate I need to solve this bul*****, that I didn't expect with WinXP 32bit, because Im outta space for my stuff I haven't tested it on a good old Win9x yet how it is recognized. Here are some links,that I was digging into: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/itproxpsp/thread/8fd33944-0202-4dff-a432-356e2b231f2e/ http://community.wdc.com/t5/External-Drives-for-PC/Exceeding-2Tb-limit-questions/td-p/234694

    Running 3TB drive on XP over USB Issue

    Well partly solved. One thing is,that there is a jumper in the enclousure for the limitation to 2TB and the second thing is,that WinXP 32bit can handle only 2TB over USB... **** ! Only exeption is to WD Mybook Essential,which has logic to trick the OS about the real drive's geometry.

    Running 3TB drive on XP over USB Issue

    OS is WinXP 32bit, that's why used Paragon's GPT Loader. Drive enclousure is SK-3501 Super-S3 from Akitio http://www.akitio.com/professional-storage/sk-3501-super-s3 Another solution is,that the enclousure doesn't handle the size what they claim. Response from Paragon was,that is for the drives which are attached directly to the MB.But if the USB converter handles it,it should work also. Funny this is,that my cheap USB/SATA/IDE converter reports the drive as 16TB :-))) So there is definitely somekind a problem with the translation in the enclousure.
  17. Hi everyove, does anybody remember for which offset to take a look for in Explorer.exe to patch it for 256 color tray icons? Dr. Hoiby did a lot of patches for most of the Windows versions, but I would like to patch it on my Win95OSR2 Czech version and for this one I can't find anything. Thanks for help Comos
  18. I've never used it, so I don't know. BenoitRen might know more about it, I believe I've seen him mention that utility before... Okay, I'll try to ask him.Today I have tested the patched explorer and it is working
  19. The file size is the same as Russian version, so I have fixed it and I'll test it tomorrow.Also I dunno what causes that the explorer.exe sometimes crashes when using the Quick Launch 95 utility in startup....
  20. The windows itself is updated to 4.00.950B (USB support included).The Explorer.exe is also 4.00.950B as I remember,but I will take a look again for a case. Checked, it's 4.00.950 version
  21. The windows itself is updated to 4.00.950B (USB support included).The Explorer.exe is also 4.00.950B as I remember,but I will take a look again for a case.
  22. Hi everyone, does anybody know please,how to get the CD-text working under Win95OSR2 when playin a CD in Winamp / stock CD player or during riping example in CDex.Under my Win98SE it is working from the basis. Where is the difference? In the OSR2 CD driver? Thanks for advice Cheers

    Running DeepBurner on Win9x

    With newer SHLWAPI.DLL I have succeed,but then there was problem of missing module in USER32.DLL
  24. Hi everyone, does anybody have experience with running the last verison of DeepBurner under Win95? During the installation,they claim,that it is designed for Win95, 98,but when I try to start it,then it prompts that there are missing some modules in SHLWAPI.DLL After when I used newer SHLWAPI from Win98SE it reports also that also in USER32.DLL some modules are missing...so bad luck :-/ Are there also other buring programs for Win9x that can handle newer DVD burners?
