  1. Any idea what latest Cinebench version works with XP?
  2. https://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/last-version-of-virtualbox-you-can-use-xp-as-host.387948/ It seems 4.3 is the last working version.
  3. Does anyone know what latest version of wokring Virtual machine is for XP? I'm going to try to run Android x86 on it. Thanks
  4. Ok I will keep trying. Yeah, the way back machine version is that one I used Greetings
  5. So I am using the wrong "devcon.exe" you think? How do you recommend I re-compile the DPMS.iso? (Its included in WinSetupFromUSB, located in the "files").
  6. Have you seen Zephyrs QFE contribution / update? https://ryanvm.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=157918#p157918
  7. I found the problem. The disk drive was disabled with a TINY exclamation mark as the only indicator that it was such, in the BIOS. To enable it user has to press Shift + i to enable /disable it. This was in the Boot order menu in BIOS. Second stage seems to work now but I probably will return to forum to ask about getting DPMS to work because Ive tried in the distant past and again more recently without any luck. The Readme supplied inside WinSetupFromUSB\Files\DPMS, suggests user merely has to add devcon.exe (file sourced from Mircrosoft server) into DPMS.ISO , also located in WinSe
  8. When the picture of XP setup was taken, the bootable usb drive was flashed as FAT32. I subsequently made another copy with WinSetupFromUSB but NTFS Cold boot with nothing in USB port "OS not found" The socket is SATA2. I tried geometry (hd0,0)1 aswell
  9. Thanks I tried both geometry (hd1) and geometry [hd1] just in case there was a typo in your message I also made USB primary disk in BIOS as advised (and removed CD drive from laptop) Unknown Disk on this page is unique to laptop, it is unusual.. FYI I made another bootable USB same image but this time NTFS (before was FBinst fat32). This did not change outcome.
  10. Hi I have read around all the available tutorials and have tried both E2B and WinsetupfromUSB. The latter appears straightforward so I use WinsetupfromUSB. Anyway I have a rock solid modified WInXP image. In the old days I used nlite to make the iso onto USB using some softwhere I forget the name of, and this worked OK on all older systems I tested usually, but with advent of UEFI I had to change that.. Systems I currently have are motherboards (2013) and a laptop (2009). The old nlite way worked with the laptop and was very versatile with other systems too provided motherb
  11. Can someone please PM me the updater, nether the links #1 work for me. On second link I get "Unable to read session config" lol I got about 5 different people PM the same attachment hahah thanks everyone I'm flattered
  12. I found an interesting thread here about this and I will probably forward it to the devs of the game to take a look. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/15615594/udpclient-exception-on-async-reception-only-on-windows-xp
  13. Good spot . So is this a unique instance where binary can't be read and deliberately encoded to be such, right? That examples to read binary exist suggests binary values can be read usually.
  14. I have tried numerous examples from the web and none have worked, paying close attention to syntax. The closest I got was that seen below: This works but result is still Binary message box, (as opposed to a comprehensible string, contary to what the author of this snippet implied) example 2 Reurns an error. Nothing Error again. Any Ideas? the Path I'm trying to read is SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows NT\\CurrentVersion\\WPAEvents Binary detail withing key OOBETimer
  15. hmm. Thanks for heads up. I'd like the disk to be as compatible as possible. I noted that E2B has elements of CSM. I was already experimenting with E2B I just wanted to test the finalized .ISO in the short term. here is the BIOS. When only Legacy is ticked , blinking underscore still persists. BIOS must be broken.
