  1. Hi all, I guess I'm a little late to this party, but I am trying to get Windows XP Pro 32-bit SP3 running w/o memory limitation on a Toshiba L50t-A-145 (Core i5 4th gen, 8GB RAM). After installing base XP SP3, I installed device drivers (mainly using DriverBooster 3.3) and then applied the Chinese XP64G 2.1 patch. Initially I thought it had worked really well, but then I found that (a) I have completely lost hibernation functionality, and (b) the laptop won't come out of Standby (it tries to, but doesn't get anywhere and I just have to power off). I'm guessing this is a problem with the Intel display driver (Device Manager says "Intel Haswell HD Graphics - GT2", driver version 6.14.10.5441 dated 10/03/2013, - igxpmp32.sys is the main file). Being a laptop, this is quite important functionality. Does anyone have any suggestions? Dibya: Does your product include a standalone patcher like the Chinese XP64G 2.1 patch utility, or is it just designed to be slipstreamed into the Win XP installer? Thanks for any help, 3g
  2. jaclaz I don't know if you're still monitoring this thread, but if so I wonder if you could answer a question for me/point me in the right direction? I came across this thread after buying an 8GB USB memory stick, with the intention of partitioning it off and making it bootable so that I could perform O/S installations from it instead of having to carry around a load of discs. However, after reading this thread I was wondering if there was a tidier solution: make the USB stick bootable and install a boot loader on it that had the ability to mount and boot an ISO image as a virtual CD/DVD (a bit like DAEMON Tools does for Windows). Then it would just be a matter of copying ISO images of the operating system installation disks onto the memory stick. Do you know if this idea is possible? I had a read of the GRUB wiki (I am more familiar with LILO), but I was none the wiser about whether or not it could boot an ISO image as a virtual CD/DVD and at the moment I can't afford to spend hours and hours trying things out unless I know that they will work. Any help you can offer will be greatly appreciated. BTW your English seems very good for an Italian? Cheers, 3g
