  1. like how buggy is LTSC 2019 on your PC? I have Win10 LTSC 2019 v1809 on my family's Dell Inspiron 620 desktop PC (a sandy bridge intel i5-2500 [2nd gen Intel] cpu) that came out in late 2011 [slightly older than the PCs RayZen have and using the pre-installed western digital 1TB HDD but has 8Gb of RAM] and is relatively fast AND stable (few to no bugs on there with the recent updates to LTSC 2019) LTSC 2019 feels like 98 SE (2nd edition) to me (not 98 gold/rtm)
  2. better solution is to upgrade to LTSC 2019 (1809/RS5) support for LTSB 2016 1607 will end in mid-October 2026 while support for LTSC 2019 ends in January 2029
  3. in Win10 versions 20H2 & newer (latest one is 21H2 but 22H2 will be coming in autumn 2022), type this in the Run dialog box: explorer.exe shell:::{BB06C0E4-D293-4f75-8A90-CB05B6477EEE} saw that tip from this site
  4. MS Edge chromium dropped Adobe Flash support completely in early 2021
  5. unfortunately those Realtek USB audio drivers for several MSI Z690 boards are in modern UAD/DCH format, which only work on recent 64bit Win10 versions (build 16299 or higher). the RtDUsbAD_msi.inf file included in those USB audio drivers mention "NTamd64.10.0...16299", meaning NT 10.0 build 16299 is the minimum windows requirement and the RtUsbA64.sys driver file loads only with at least Win10 v1709 UAD/DCH drivers never work on anything less than Win10 v1709/RS3 (not even in Win7/8.x) and use HSA (aka. Hardware Support Application) based apps downloaded from Microsoft Store (and MS store also don't work on Win7) edit - plus those Z690 boards from MSI came with Realtek ALC4080/ALC4082 audio chipsets which came out a few years ago in spring 2020, when Win7 was already EOL
  6. MS store on Win8/8.1 is discontinued, sort of many apps from MS store are for Win10 & newer, not Win8.x https://redmondmag.com/articles/2018/08/20/microsoft-store-windows-8-app-updates.aspx
  7. July 2022 updates (not including the monthly rollups): KB5015875 security-only update {download from MS Catalog} KB5015805 cumulative IE11 update for Server 2012 {download from MS Catalog} need newest KB5016263 servicing stack update installed first before installing these July 2022 updates
  8. check out these recent articles I saw: Softpedia News - Turns Out You Can Install Windows XP on a 1MHz Computer Neowin - Booting Windows XP on a 1MHz Pentium CPU takes three hours guess someone out there was bold enough to try to run XP on the oldest and slowest intel pentium system
  9. it seems only the July 2021 & August 2021 security only updates [aka. KB5004302 & KB5005094 for Win8 / Server 2012] (and any W8.x big monthly "rollups" from July 2021 onwards) are the only updates that do remove activex flash. the Sep 2021 security only updates like KB5005607 for Win8 and KB5005627 for Win8.1, on the other hand, do NOT remove flash as Microsoft mistakenly said they would include flash removal but in reality these updates do not even touch the adobe flash files and the flash player control panel app remains intact
  10. indeed. what Vistapocalypse is simply saying that only the update agent (or windows update client) on Win8 needs to updated with certain updates in order for windows update to function correctly (or it will ask to install a newer update agent if no win8 updates were installed when attempting to check for updates) and yes SHA-2 support was built-in Win8.x
  11. actually you need to install both KB3013767 and KB2999323 updates. KB3013767 updates windows update agent to 7.8.9200.17172 while KB2999323 updates windows update agent to 7.8.9200.17185 but you need both of them installed for WU to work in this current era. KB2999323 isn't listed as a standalone update in MS update catalog but the download links to both KB3013767 and KB2999323 are revealed after searching for just KB3013767 from MUC.
  12. on the amd side, maybe an amd r9 290 but amd only provided very old vista drivers for those - see this topic from Vistax64.com
  13. some OEMs like Dell & HP at that time did provide some Vista system recovery DVD discs (like for my mom's old Dell Inspiron e1405 laptop and my cousin's old HP pavilion dv6500 series entertainment notebook pc which bundled those Vista DVDs)
  14. I beg to differ on 1607 as that one became stable for me for most of my old PCs, especially with the LTSB 2016 variant of 1607 near the end of 2016 & beginning of 2017 and later edit - and try telling that to this guy who runs 1607 & no other version but that one
