    Using AbiWord 2.9 on XP Pro SP3

    Just "Copy" and "Paste". If you want to erase the original then "Cut" and "Paste". As simple as that!

    Imaging Windows 10 install possible?

    There are a lot of disk imaging and cloning programs, I personally use Macrium Reflect Free. Even Windows 8 that I use have their own backup system, I suppose Windows 10 does the same too (I don't know for sure because I don't have them).

    ThinkPad Can't Connect to School Interent

    I think it must be the issue. And this must be the solution. However, check if the wireless network is of the "n" type, (it usually is but just in case it isn't).

    Would Enabling TRIM on a HDD Cause any Problems?

    Enabling TRIM does nothing on an HDD (I have an HDD and a program with TRIM enabled). Even if the program is stupid enough to try to TRIM the HDD I suppose it will just fail. Also, newer SSDs doesn't need TRIM at all, they have their internal procedures for this job.

    That's real evidence. Strange anyway since I have the opposite experience. What type of Windows XP you have? I have Windows XP Home Edition. Of course the fact is that when installing Windows XP I create 2 or 3 partitions that cover all the disk space except for the known 8 MBs. I wonder if this makes the difference...

    The unallocated area at end of the "Extended" exists because you don't allocate it to a partition? How are you sure that it is really an extended partition? If you mean that the unpartitioned space is inside the second partition because it is listed separately from the 8 MB that Windows XP Setup reserves for the setup process I don't really think so, there is no real evidence for that. I suggest to install Windows once creating the partitions with the Windows XP Setup and then check in the Disk Management Console if the partitions are primary or not. I have installed Windows XP countless times and the partitions were always primary (with one exception which I don't know how it occurred). Of course you use a modified installation source which may make some difference (Rufus etc.) but yet have you checked that the second partition is really an extended one?

    The Windows XP installer makes primary partitions as far as I remember. In order to make logical partitions you must first create an extended one to contain them.

    Windows 95 as an "app" for Windows 10, Linux & Mac?

    Thanks for the clarification!
  13. That's the sad truth but yet there are the virtual machines.

    Yet it is an abandonware case.
