  1. I'm on Firefox 68 ESR currently, though as a result of the new regimen, I'll be switching to WaterFox once the newest release comes out.
  2. The Intel 7260/8260 AC support Windows 7, albeit with updates. There may be others. I'm eyeing the 8260 in particular to replace my laptop's 9560 (using a cheap TPLink dongle with Windows 7 as we speak)
  3. Update: the machine in question isn't mine anymore. But I did purchase a new one, a Dell G5 5587. This has the same wifi controller, although this time I'm simply going to use a USB wifi adapter for the time being. I'll replace the internal with one that has Windows 7 support down the road. In the meantime, I'm going to create a guide on how to install Windows 7 onto this laptop.
  4. I've seen many individuals use newer GPUs with older Legacy BIOS systems just fine. According to this forum post, it seems to be an issue with AMD cards mainly. Video of a GTX 1050 running in a legacy bios system. His channel has many more examples, too.
  5. My sincerest condolences. He was one of MSFN's most talented individuals. I'm still in awe about how he was able to do so much for the Windows 9x series of OSes. He will be missed greatly.
  6. PCem v15 is a great option for emulating 9x-era hardware. But 200MHz+ chips and SLI Voodoo cards can be taxing unless you have a very good host CPU (particularly single thread wise). As far as VMs go, as @~♥Aiko♥Chan♥~ said, VMWare WKS and Player are your best bet.
  7. So I got this laptop, it's an HP 14 ce1000 with the whiskey lake i5 CPU. I was able to get everything else to mostly work with some MacGyvering and modified drivers. But these don't seem to budge at all. This is the hw ID if you're interested: PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_9DF0&SUBSYS_00348086&REV_30 I've tried many workarounds but none work. Any help?
  8. Well I have two GT 710s, so I'll probably install the other one and see if that helps. Although, the issue isn't as bad after I ran system restore.
  9. Well I'll be darned. I used System Restore and it fixed everything. I used it as a last resort, but it seems it actually did what it was supposed to do. Problem solved. The last time I used System Restore was 2009, so I didn't know what to expect.
  10. I've tried disabling startup programs to no avail. I honestly think something must've messed up the system.
  11. I have a fresh install of Windows XP, updated, on the 2nd PC I'm using. Initially there weren't any issues with Explorer, but after I installed a driver from Nvidia, explorer has kept locking up ever since. I am forced to end it via task manager and restart it. Even when I completely removed the driver, the same thing happens. Will I have to reinstall windows? I honestly can't point to anything else that's causing this. I've uninstalled and disabled as many programs as possible, and yet, the issue persists.
  12. Has anyone tried using one of @roytam1's browsers and spoofing the user agent?
  13. Probably. Windows 9x seems to act up on the system in all sorts of weird ways. Even though I can install ME, trying to open up an MS-DOS command prompt hard locks the system, and therefore anything that relies on the DOS prompt doesn't work. I'd also need the SATA/AHCI driver to get proper disk access. For now, I'm only going to be running XP on that box until I can purchase the needed software.
  14. New version of Basilisk running excellent. As always, thank you @roytam1. Testing on Windows XP SP3(4) (AHCI) installed to the SSD of machine #2 in my signature.
  15. Okay, so I tried what you told me to do, and I found out that the system.ini file gets corrupted on its own, being replaced by a bunch of garbled junk. At this point, I'm pretty much at my wit's end with this system. Recently, two windows xp installs have failed for strange reasons, and I think this machine has some bigger issues with it that may be causing these problems. EDIT: was able to get XP on the SSD but only in AHCI mode. I think the IDE emulation on this platform might be broken.
