  1. I have a document for creating a bootable pendrive using cmd - for Win7. There it says that you cannot use the method for XP or Win8, because "you cannot select the primary partition in command prompt." Since my goal is to install XP, I wonder if, and how I could make a bootable pendrive for installing XP?
  2. Program not supported by my CPU;) - AMD Ryzen
  3. My harvest today: (KB4025409)Saturday, July 15, 2017Automatic Updates Windows XP EmbeddedSecurity Update for WES09 and POSReady 2009 (KB4025877) Don't know what it means, I just take what I get, haven't had any obvious problems yet. Roffen
  4. Oh yes, I remember we had quite some discussion about these things some years ago. I haven't paid much attention to the term chainloading, but I think I understand what it means, and that means there are requirements requiring to be taken care of. I have saved a lot of what you wrote back then and will try to implement some of your suggestions and see how far that will take me.
  5. This is my current boot.ini file: [boot loader] timeout=30 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Windows XPSp4" /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN /FASTDETECT The first “multi” line boots a hard drive with a plain XPSp3. The second “multi” boots the first partition of a SSD drive with XPSp4, which also is the default option. I want to add another line with the option to boot the Windows 7 Home edition already on the second partition of the SSD. Please show me what the line should read, I tried but didn’t get it right.
  6. I got a link to where we could get XP compatible USB adapters, and I ordered two of them. But something went wrong in tranaitt and they newer arrived here. So I'll have to order again. It is a pain to use a laptop and I can't use the stationary because it is not wireless for the time being. I dont't have acces to cable connecction here. Hope I can get some adapters and get properly back on the air again.
  7. So I install Win7 Home Premium, then Virtual PC, and finally XP. I don't know anything about Virtual PC. I understand that I cannot install XP on an empty volume, so how is it actually done in this case? Is any tutorial material on the process available?
  8. I am getting less interested in building computers these days, the last motherboard I got doesn't work, I suspect a problem and am tired of trying to make it run. But what commercial builds can I buy and expect them to run XP? ASUS, MSI, Lenovo and HP machines are available here. I'd prefer ASUS but the most important feature is the ability to run XP. Anything you could recommend? Anyway, it looks like XP compatible hardware soon only will be a sweet memory. Processor manufacturers will see to that.
  9. New British aircraft carrier equipped with Windows-XP Norwegian text: https://www.digi.no/artikler/har-utstyrt-splitter-nytt-hangarskip-med-windows-xp/396754
  10. I have posted about this problem with a new 1.0 TB WD disk before, but after another attempt I wrote down the error message: Stop 0x9999997B (0xF78D2524 0xC0000034 0x00000000 0x00000000) Does it convey any meaningful information? There is some text as well, but I don't think it says anything of value.
  11. I have an old Plexgear USB wireless adapter that I am convinced would run with XP - but I can't find a driver on the web, and the mini CD with driver that I have had for many years, suddenly disappeared. Where can I find/buy XP compatible wireless cards or USB sticks?
  12. I am somewhat unhappy with the current installation of SP4 that I am using. And I am unable to verify the update status. Typing often is very sluggish and I want to make a new installation. What may or will happen if I remove Sp4 from the installation? At present I have a dual boot setup: XPSp4 or Win7 on each their own partition of a SSD drive. In addition to the SSD, I have a 200GB disk with several partitions. If I install a plain XPSp3 on one of the partitions, what exactly do I have to do in order to make it POS Ready updateable? I keep the machine running 24/7 so there are no reasons for attempting a fast boot process. I think complete instructions are available somewhere upthread. I don't know what will happen with the boot order setup when I have installed XP again on another of the hard disk volumes, but am I correct in assuming that I can always install a new system on any of the partitions without disrupting the installation on the other volumes on the same disk? I presume I always may modify the active boot.ini file to suit my preferences. I also expect to be able to install what's required for POS Ready to the registry. I just rounded 87 and I am not quite the man I used to be. Maybe it is time to buy a Win10 machine and forget all about the good old days? There's only one reason why I have computers: I only want to use them, that's all. I leave all the rest to you guys. And MusicMatch Jukebox is what necessitate my use of XP. AFAIK, there is no other way it can be done?
  13. I run IE in order to check that XP updates keeps coming. But IE tells me that 1. Your browser is out-of-date You need to update your browser to use the site. Update to the latest version of Internet Explorer So I install 2. Update for Internet Explorer 8 for Windows XP (KB976749) This update addresses issues discussed in Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 976749. For more information see the Overview section of this page. 3. But problem remains. Any possible cure?
  14. I may have posted this before, but haven't got any response. My problem is that when I go to the Security Center check for updates, I get the msg Your Browser is Out-Of-Date. I am running XPSp4, the IE8 is version 8.9.6001.18702, update version 0;3283 Anything I can do to fix it?
  15. I'd like to try the POS Ready version of XP instead of Sp4, how do I do it? Presume there is an up to date 'how to do it' somewhere.
  16. "Internet Explorer 8 is not compatible with your system. You are running Windows XP 32-bit. Although Internet Explorer 8 will not run on your system, you can download Internet Explorer 8 for other operating systems." I am not even allowed to get a look at my downloads, but that was working as it should only a few days ago. Is version 8 the only one usable on XP?,
  17. The download page shows updates for everything from Vista and up, but none for XP?
  18. I've installed IE8-WindowsXP-KB976749-x86-ENU but still get msg. Your browser is out-of-date. I presume IE8 is the only version I can use on XP? So what can I do?
  19. Just now tried my usual path to updates, and got a msg telling me to ge the the latest version of IE. Yesterday it was all ok. ETA Just tried again, get to a download link but can't get the file KB976749 that seems to be the one needed. Anyone have a copy, English version?
  20. I guess I am ignorant, but what is the purpose of all those .Net Framework files? How do I know I should install anything beginning with .Net? I don't know anything about certificates either, is there something I ought to do about them?
  21. I am happily ignorant about what certificates are good for. I don't know and don't worry as long as I don't have any problems with the OS I am running. Latest update here was april 19, Update for WEPOS and POSReady 2009 (KB4015193)
  22. Thank you, will try tomorrow - hope and trust I can report success then.
