  1. All versions of Cinebench R10, R11, R15, R20. R15 seems to support 64bit only. So R11 is last version.
  2. Any idea what latest Cinebench version works with XP?
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. Ok I will keep trying. Yeah, the way back machine version is that one I used Greetings
  6. 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").
  7. Have you seen Zephyrs QFE contribution / update? https://ryanvm.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=157918#p157918
  8. 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 WinSetupFromUSB\Files\DPMS, which I did with "MagicISO" software, which lets user easily add.remove files within ISO. I never had any luck getting DPMS to auto-detect chipset drivers on multiple systems. Thanks for helping out
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. 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 motherboard had Compatibity IDE / AHCI choice in BIOS. I never bothered to inject drivers to installviaAHCI, because I felt that AHCI simply wasnt worth it in SSD system (benefits of AHCI are exlclusive to HDD drives). I realised some boards dont allow IDE/AHCI select but I felt it was worth risk. Anyway, 2013 mobo uses UEFI so I formatted the USB and made new installer with WinsetupfromUSB which works OK. But this change broke install on laptop; while "first part" of grub4dos setup works, "second part" does not. I was lead to believe WinSetupfromUSB team ironed out all the all compatibility problems but obviously not? I mean the tutorials make clear, it enables UEFI install while retaining Legacy support. It seem impossible to mess this up I dont know what I did wrong. Below is the process on laptop using UEFI Bootable USB (with SATA mode set to compatibiliy IDE). Again the same disk works fine on 2013 UEFI system Then Computer reboots, where I enter grub4dos and then the following screen shows where I choose "Second part of setup"): Very briefly this shows up but then it returns to this screen and the cycle repeats So does anyone know what I did wrong? I dont really want to have two setup from USB sticks. The whole point of WinSetupfromUSB is it can support both legacy MBR type and UEFI type BIOS... The picture with fuzzy writing is because the message appears VERY fast so I needed to time the camera shot perfectly. But atleas tI got the writing. I think it holds a clue.
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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.
