  1. Have you found a way to change the language with a language pack or another method?
  2. recaptcha work on Windows 2000 SP3 with... -Opera 12.02 It doesn't work with... -Firefox 12 -Dooble Web Browser 1.40 -Qupzilla 1.6.6
  3. Currently I always use Windows 2000 SP3. In the past I have used official Windows 2000 SP4 and I have installed Opera 12.10 Beta. This requires UxTheme. dll, just paste this dll into one of the directories that asks for the popup message. For example the Opera installation directory. Then Opera 12.10 Works in w2000 SP4. I think that on Service Pack 4 has to work Opera 12.18 pasting uxtheme. dll In Service Pack 3 does not work me says: "Cannot find the entry point of the GdiDrawStream procedure in the dynamic link library GDI32. dll" This message appears to me randomly when running some programs. Before the message did not appear to me but now the message appears to me Can I update GDI32. dll? In the past I have had problems updating this DLL, Windows 2000 does not boot if you put GDI32. dll from Windows XP Note: This MSFN post Is down. Has it been erased?

  4. *Edit: I have Windows XP with 3.5 GiB RAM Until now I was with an integrated Ati video card without any problem. I tried to install 2 PCI-e cards, one is Ati and the other Asus with chip Nvidea Gforce 7300 LE-HTD-256 With the Ati I have conflict issues with the drivers, since when installing them, the integrated drivers are also updated and, when Windows starts, it emits the blue screen unless I disable the integrated graphics card in the device manager. So I decide to install the Nvidia. But nothing else that I put it in the PCI-e slot when starting Windows says that I only have 2 GiB RAM, I tried to install the drivers and the result is the same. I verify that in all Windows NT5 this card limits the RAM memory system to 2GiB, regardless of the installed memory. In the BIOS I do not see any option to correct this except to disable the "Memory Remap Feature" option which increases the limit up to 2.6 GiB RAM There is a solution? The Nvidia video card have only 256 MiB VRAM, I do not know why it limits my RAM to 2 GiB

    Solved. Now it works, the dll was missing, thanks. I have studied the hal change on cloned Windows XP and I have written 2 methods. I have written them in Spanish and translated for you with Google Translate, I am sorry if there is an automatic translator error. Method 1 - Copying We enter the folder \ WINDOWS \ Driver Cache \ i386 and look for the files for the corresponding hal in this order of appearance by copying them to a separate folder and then renaming them or not copying them to the system32 folder: 1-The own folder i386 uncompressed 2º-Extracting the sp3.cab file or the most current service pack installed. 3º-Extracting from the driver.cab file -PC standard, without ACPI or APIC: we extract ntoskrnl.exe ntkrnlpa.exe hal.dll and copy them into the system32 folder Note: If the system comes from an ACPI device it may be necessary to manually add the "Apm / Legacy Compatible in Windows NT" device to enable APM shutdown, as well as clear the ACPI-related controller entries in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Services, such as ACPI, ACPIEC, cmbatt, battc and compbatt (the system actually hides them automatically by installing new compatible drivers) -Equipment compatible with Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI), with ACPI but without APIC: we extract ntoskrnl.exe ntkrnlpa.exe halacpi.dll, rename halacpi.dll by hal.dll and copy them to the system32 folder. -Monoprocessor ACPI of PC, with ACPI and APIC (monoprocessors with ACPI) we extract ntoskrnl.exe ntkrnlpa.exe halaacpi.dll, rename halaacpi.dll by hal.dll and copy them to the system32 folder. - ACPI multiprocessor equipment, with ACPI, APIC and multiprocess (multicores or HT as Pentium IV HT) we extract ntkrnlmp.exe ntkrpamp.exe halmacpi.dll, rename them correlatively by ntoskrnl.exe ntkrnlpa.exe hal.dll and copy them into the system32 folder. We restart and once the system has booted we wait a couple of minutes until the system asks us to restart again. Method 2 We enter the folder \ WINDOWS \ Driver Cache \ i386 and look for the files for the corresponding hal in this order of appearance: 1-The own folder i386 uncompressed 2º-Extracting the sp3.cab file or the most current service pack installed. 3º-Extracting from the driver.cab file We copy them to another folder, rename them as indicated and paste them into the system32 directory -PC standard, without ACPI or APIC: ntoskrnl.exe ntkrnlpa.exe hal.dll renamed by ntos.exe ntospa.exe hal1.dll Note: If the system comes from an ACPI device it may be necessary to manually add the "Apm / Legacy Compatible in Windows NT" device to enable APM shutdown, as well as clear the ACPI-related controller entries in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Services, such as ACPI, ACPIEC, cmbatt, battc and compbatt -Equipment compatible with Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI), with ACPI but without APIC: we extract ntoskrnl.exe ntkrnlpa.exe halacpi.dll rename us ntos.exe ntospa.exe hal2.dll -Monoprocessor ACPI of PC, with ACPI and APIC (monoprocessors with ACPI) we extract ntoskrnl.exe ntkrnlpa.exe halaacpi.dll renamed by ntos.exe ntospa.exe hal3.dll - ACPI multiprocessor equipment, with ACPI, APIC and multiprocess (multicores or HT as Pentium IV HT) we extract ntkrnlmp.exe ntkrpamp.exe halmacpi.dll we rename by ntkr.exe ntkrpa.exe hal4.dll * APIC offers more IRQs (4 characters are renamed + 4 characters adding pa + a different name for the new hall) The first 3 hall share files.exe and the dlls are numbered hall1, hall2, hall3, hall4 instead of hallnew.dll to be able to put them all in a clone of Windows and use the convenience of the system in which the installation is pasted. Now it is necessary during the first Windows boot to add in the final part of the boot.ini file the load of the new hall for Windows to install (/kernel=archivo1.exe /hal=halx.dll) Once the system is booted, it is deleted by restoring its previous content and we wait a couple of minutes until the system asks us to restart again. For example: Standard PC, without ACPI or APIC: [boot loader] timeout = 30 default = multi (0) disk (0) rdisk (0) partition (1) \ WINDOWS [operating systems] multi (0) disk (0) rdisk (0) partition (1) \ WINDOWS = "Microsoft Windows XP Professional" / fastdetect / noexecute = optin / sos / kernel =ntos.exe /hal=hal1.dll -Equipment compatible with Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI), with ACPI but without APIC: [boot loader] timeout = 30 default = multi (0) disk (0) rdisk (0) partition (1) \ WINDOWS [operating systems] multi (0) disk (0) rdisk (0) partition (1) \ WINDOWS = "Microsoft Windows XP Professional" / fastdetect / noexecute = optin / sos / kernel =ntos.exe /hal=hal2.dll -Monoprocessor ACPI of PC, with ACPI and APIC (monoprocessors with ACPI) [boot loader] timeout = 30 default = multi (0) disk (0) rdisk (0) partition (1) \ WINDOWS [operating systems] multi (0) disk (0) rdisk (0) partition (1) \ WINDOWS = "Microsoft Windows XP Professional" / fastdetect / noexecute = optin / sos / kernel =ntos.exe /hal=hal3.dll - ACPI multiprocessor equipment, with ACPI, APIC and multiprocess (multicores or HT as Pentium IV HT) [boot loader] timeout = 30 default = multi (0) disk (0) rdisk (0) partition (1) \ WINDOWS [operating systems] multi (0) disk (0) rdisk (0) partition (1) \ WINDOWS = "Microsoft Windows XP Professional" / fastdetect / noexecute = optin / sos / kernel =ntkr.exe /hal=hal4.dll We can also create a supercharger by leaving the first line intact and adding all the mentioned lines in order to start the clone directly on any computer. Deleting all the added lines later: [boot loader] timeout = 30 default = multi (0) disk (0) rdisk (0) partition (1) \ WINDOWS [operating systems] multi (0) disk (0) rdisk (0) partition (1) \ WINDOWS = "Microsoft Windows XP Professional" / fastdetect / noexecute = optin / sos multi (0) disk (0) rdisk (0) partition (1) \ WINDOWS = "XP standard PC" / fastdetect / noexecute = optin / sos /kernel=ntos.exe /hal=hal1.dll multi (0) disk (0) rdisk (0) partition (1) \ WINDOWS = "XP ACPI monoprocessor" / fastdetect / noexecute = optin / sos / kernel =ntos.exe /hal=hal2.dll multi (0) disk (0) rdisk (0) partition (1) \ WINDOWS = "XP ACPI and APIC monoprocessor" / fastdetect / noexecute = optin / sos /kernel=ntos.exe /hal=hal3.dll multi (0) disk (0) rdisk (0) partition (1) \ WINDOWS = "XP ACPI and multiprocessor APIC" / fastdetect / noexecute = optin / sos / kernel =ntkr.exe /hal=hal4.dll Note: When you switch from non-ACPI equipment to ACPI and vice versa, the process of reinstalling all the controllers starts.

    Activate all processor cores at startup

    My Windows XP doesn`t have a dll named NTKRPAMP.EXE If I find, in which folder it is necessary to copy. I'm reading that all this is related to the different hal layers, something I had not studied very much when I cloned systems Edit: I extract NTKRNLMP.EXE and NTKRPAMP.EXE from the SP3.CAB file and rename them by NTOSKRNL.EXE and NTKRNLPA.EXE Then I copy them into the system32 folder (this allows me to do it in normal Windows mode). Reboot and the initial screen says: "1 multi-core processor" (if reinstall Windows says 4 processors) But at this moment the system freezes blocking the screen. I want to put the correct hal but while ... Can I go back to the hal "ACPI compatible computer"? I have a complete copy of the system image. What files do I have to copy to return to the previous hal? Thanks

    Activate all processor cores at startup

    Oh, my god. ACPI now does not work. I have uninstalled the driver "Computer compatible with ACPI". When rebooting the system, all system drivers have been reinstalled and then Windows XP says that my PC is a standard PC without ACPI. I can not find a way to reset the ACPI compatible PC driver and remove the standard PC driver. I have restored a previous system registry and now in the device manager I see the 2 controllers at the same time: -Computer compatible with ACPI -PC standard But the 4 cores do not appear in the device manager and Windows XP does not have ACPI.

    Activate all processor cores at startup

    In that section, it only gives me two options: -PC standard -Computer compatible with ACPI. The ACPI Hal multiprocessor controller does not appear. The computer is working correctly but I'm surprised that on the Windows load screen it says 1 processor instead of 4. Once Windows starts, in the device manager it shows 4 processors. How can I verify that the 4 cores work?
  9. I made a Windows XP clone from a mono-core computer to a quad-core computer (Intel Core 2 Quad q6600) The 4 cores are displayed in the device manager. But on the system boot screen in the boot.ini / SOS mode, it shows 1 single processor. On the Internet there are many websites that say that to start with the 4 cores, you must enter the variant / numproc = 4 with msconfig, but my Windows XP only shows the number 1. Therefore, I entered the variant manually in boot.ini When I restart Windows on / sos mode, it keeps saying that I only have 1 processor. If I reinstall Windows, then it shows 4 processors but I lose several installed programs. I want it to show 4 processors without reinstalling Windows. msconfig / numproc = 4 does not work [boot loader] wait time = 30 default = multi (0) disk (0) rdisk (0) partition (3) \ WINDOWS [operating systems] multi (0) disk (0) rdisk (0) partition (3) \ WINDOWS = "Windows XP Pro" / fastdetect / noexecute = optin / sos / numproc = 4 multi (0) disk (0) rdisk (0) partition (2) \ WINNT = "Windows 2000 Pro" / pae / sos

    How to use 4 Cores in Windows 2000

    Can you recommend a program to control the CPU frequency?
  11. I see this information by chance. I did not know that Opera 12 had been receiving security updates until February 15, 2016. I can not test Opera 12.18 at this time on Windows 2000 Sorry if it does not work. https://www.ghacks.net/2016/02/16/surprise-opera-12-18-has-been-released/ https://blogs.opera.com/security/2016/02/opera-12-and-opera-mail-security-update/ Download: ftp://ftp.opera.com/pub/opera/win/1218/

  13. I am creating a package to update root and intermediate certificates on Windows XP, since I have not found anything on the Internet. After a few days I will publish it here, but first I want to correct some mistakes. Several certificates give the following error: "The certificate has a digital signature that is not valid" I just reviewed the SHA-2 algorithm and see that it is compatible with Windows XP SP3. I also installed the SHA-2 Crypt32.dll update found here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/968730/windows-server-2003-and-windows-xp-clients-cannot-obtain-certificates However, although older certificates do not fail, the most modern root and intermediate certificates still fail. For example: Root: Amazon Root CA 4 Amazon Root CA 5 DoD Root CA 4 DoD Root CA 5 Google Trust Services: Global Sign Root CA 4 GSM Association - RSP2 Root Cl1 Thawte Primary Root CA - G4 I link to Thawte certificates where they give the details of each of their certificates. The other certificates work fine but the G4 gives an error. https://www.thawte.com/roots/ Something similar happens with Google certificates, they do not work: GIAG3 ECC GTS Root R3 GTS Root R4 https://pki.goog/ I have tested all the certificates on Windows Seven and several certificates no longer give this error, although some also give an error. What can be the defect on Windows XP? Is it possible that there is a failure in the checks of the CRL lists or is it a failure in the algorithms?
  14. I explain it in the first comment of this topic, 16 pages ago. https://msfn.org/board/topic/176480-2-tib-limit-size-in-mbr-hard-drives/?do=findComment&comment=1135835 I work with 4 TiB & 3 TiB disks with the cluster size 4KiB on Windows 2000 & Windows XP. The image shows a 4 TiB disk with a single partition on Windows XP. But I have other 4 TiB discs with 8 partitions working correctly on NT 5 (2000 & XP). However, these same discs are not read by Windows NT 6.1 (commercially Windows Seven). Linux also reads them since 2010. They are also read by Windows NT 10 But Windows Seven does not read MBR>2TiB to me , neither by USB nor by SATA, it says Raw disc type, does not recognize them. I say it just for reporting, I will never use systems after NT 5 to work. So I do not care if it does not work on Windows Seven, although I think it's a frustrating trap.
  15. I suppose File Emulator also works on Windows 2000, right? Windows Seven also did not read MBR disks >2 TiB from SATA. I suppose that later Service Pack may have fixed this error.
